|Use this old HP for DOS applications no longer compatible with XP. |
It has a PI 16MB RAM and Window 95.
I just replaced the original CD drive with an HP CD Writer Plus 8000 series. Everything is hooked up properly, the device opens and closes, light comes on, powers on when PC is booted.
Problem: Window 95 will not detect it.
Tries Add Hardware: Detects nothing.
Device Manager: No new drives detected.
HP Support/ Driver Download site: Only has a firmware update available for the drive & Win95 which is useless because it will not install without the original driver.
So I have tried every trouble shooting scenario.
If you can find the original driver, which I could not find, or if you have one of these in your pc and can get the drive, it would be appreciated!
