    i tried installing a dvd game and part way through it came up with a data cyclical error. After that my dvd writer disappeared and when i try to reinstall it it fails. It goes through the process of recognising new hardware but cant go any further than searching for drivers for which it cant find any. Does anyone know how to set the drivers back to the orignials coz im guessing that the ones i was using are now corrupted. Any help would gratefully be appreciated

    Have you tried doing a system restore to before you had the problem?
