I have an external hp cd writer 8200 that used to work just fine. I had a problem and had to restore everything on my system. Everything else works, but when I try to install my cd writer, it says that the driver can not be found. I have the original floppy disk with the driver on it, but device manager still cannot find it. I also tried getting the most recent driver from hp.com, but no luck. Any ideas?

is the driver from hp on a floppy? if you are trying to install the driver in plug n'play sometimes it won't find the file and you have to find it yourself. If you have the hp driver just click cancell when prompted by plug n'play to install drivers and when you get to windows just execute the install file on the disk and it should install everything right.

or go to your control panel and install it using add new hardware. I don't know what you've tried yet.

Tried the add new hardware method. Didn't work.
There's no executable file on the disk...
