Pity i will have to get a new driver...

Thanks for the help guys.
A new driver, or a new drive? I'm confused.

I thought you meant a new drive. It's a real bummer when you have to spend cash, so I can definately relate.

However, check this out. This thread really struck a cord with me for some reason. So, I attempted to install a few REALLY old drives on Windows 7. Every one of them worked perfect, even an old CD-ROM drive dated at 1998. I'm thinking your drive took a dump.
