    Im growing frustrated here, i just got my new system and want to install vista home premium, but in the middle of the initiation for the installation, vista ask me for the dvd-drive driver. my drive is kinda ancient and finding a driver for is just HARD, i have an HP dvd200i dvd writer, and all i can find is firmware updates.

    pls help me find this driver.

    Yea looks like you'll probably need a new one. They aren't too much though, that one shadow only $20, and for $30 you could get a fast dvd burner, and a few bucks more and you can get the fastest there is. Consider it a gentle push in the upgrade direction (right, like microsoft knows how to push gently).:)
