Mfriends partner accidentally deleted the cd rom and cd writer out of windows.
i have not got a clu how but i tried re installing them but there is no cabs folder.
i was wondering if anyone can tell me whichcab file it needs and whether it will fit on a floppy

You don't give alot of details but if you are talking about drivers then, you shouldn't need them from windows 95 onwards.
Just reinstall the CD burning software.

Try this. Run add new hardware wizard and see if that detects them. If not then you can try this too. Disconnect cables and reboot. Shut down,m reconnect cables and reboot again. Windows should detect new hardware and find drivers for them. Best of luck.
