hp cd-writer plus 7500 series external drivers

does anyone know where i can get the windows 2000 pro drivers for this drive?

i have tried the HP site but they seem to insist that i buy a cd for 10 pounds with them on. something i don't wamt to do incase this doesn't fix the problem.

i was also wondering, as it connects through my parralel port, if these drivers need updating for windows 2000?

any help would be great!

thanks for that. have the file but how do i go about installing it?

is it as simple as copying it into my c:\winnt\system32\drivers folder, shutting down the machine, connecting up the driver and rebooting?

and what about the parallel port? do you think there might be a confilct there and i need new drivers, or would windows 2000 install the latest drivers?
