I downloaded Drive Detective to try to get CDR drivers. My HP laserjet 5p printer stopped working even though I uploaded the latest drivers. My connection is parallel port to usb.

Open the printer screen in Device manager and look at the driver tab. Roll back the driver to the previous one.

Or if you prefer, perform a System Restore in Windows to a point before running driver detective.

IMO you should only use those third party driver programs as a last resort. Also, if the hardware device is functioning OK leave it alone unless Windows indicates there may be a security issue.

What is the issue with your CD drive? Is the drive an internal or external unit? Does it show up in the start up screens before Windows starts?
