Did you uninstall them in device manager, or can you try update driver, roll back driver, etc in drive properties.

thanks for responding,
I didnt uninstall it via the device manager, it was via thedriver details assigned to the cd rom. ive tried to update and roll back, butit says tit cant because there is no driver. Its seems to have totally vanished.
I cant seem to find a driver for a samsungCD_R/RW SW-248F on the net anywhere.

Have you tried deleting the drives from Device Manager and letting Windows find the drives again?

It should be usable with Windows built-in drivers.

You need the built in XP drivers CD-Roms do not have drivers as such they work off the O/S. Maybe the bootdisks will have them on.

These are mine, can you extract them from your installation disk?
