Can you give me a quick how to do on that? I put in 2 of the disks earlier(Utilitie drivers and one with "internet software", and it kept reading them as blank. I seem to remember having to restart and hitting osmething for them to read?

You would do this when doing a system restore, not when you just need a driver or utility off of the CD.

Btw, anything you want from everest?

Nope, we know what driver you need, just need to figure out how to get it from your working computer to your laptop or from the Driver's CD.

Yeah, when I do that, it brings up a folder, and it is showing the cd's contents which is nothing. It's blank, and when I right click properties it says

Used space: 0 bytes
Free space: 0 bytes

I have both of the computers right next to each other. Any cords I can hook up to them to transfer information?

Not unless you have an external CD or Hard drive that hooks up via a USB cord.

Looks like you're going to need to get a friend/family member to burn you a CD with the file from the link I posted earlier.

Once you have the driver on a CD, feel free to come back if you need additional support.

As for your Cd-ROM reading the Cd's as blank, does it read ALL CD's as blank or only the Dell CD's?
