If this is easier than finding an other alternative.... Go for it! It should take an hour or so (less if you have experience). Then you will be able to get what you need right at home!

well today is written off, so installing dvd on the old OS is this afternoon's task.
Back in a while with results.

Hi,
that was easy.
simple instructions that work.
About 5days and 23hours easier than Toshiba.

I reckon Tosh should take lessons from Liteon on how to write instructions.

Now where's that driver file link that KP gave me?

At this rate it is probably several hundred posts back (did we hit several hundred posts yet? Feels like it). Or in the email I sent you!

I like Lite-On

Hi Kp,
that was not a real question I think I was talking to myself.

I have downloaded the files again and copied them to the dvd +rw.

DVD auto loaded nero, copied but it didn't, tried again. format the DVD disc,
tried again.
erased the dvd disc
tried again.
test the disc, reports "locked by INcd" ?

go to sonic, format again. copy
yet again reports successful copy.
This time sonic sees the files.
But explorer can't/won't look in the dvd.
However the laptop sees the files.

forced the laptop to go to where I have the driver files disc.
re-install is looking for a *.inf file and sees 3 matching files.
I select each in turn and the next button is always greyed out. Seems to not be the file it is expecting to find.

Should the folder have a specific name? There are 21 files in "Network Driver" folder.

If you had 100 files on the CD, it should pick the "One".

re-install wizard only lets me see the inf files all the other are effectively hidden. and each of the three inf files do not light up next.
not going anywhere.
