well you got me at the runtime error?
Try running the automated fix from Microsoft(again sorry)
Your CD or DVD drive cannot read or write media
try running it and let it acept any changed it makes, and dont forget to restart,
other than that I cant tell you anything about the runtime error
sorry

well I dont know what to say? verry strange. as a last opininon/advice i would uninstall the driverand the device from device manager and then try re-installing the driver. If you still cannot get it to work after that i dont know what to tell you.
