    cd rom driver wont load please help

    Lo guys,
    The strangest thing has just happened, ive recently upgraded to win 2000 pro, everything running fine for over a week now, im still installing some software, but today i installed my hewlett packard cd/rw software. Now my HP 9100 cd/rw drive has been working fine, but when i installed the writing software windows cant find my cdrom, it says it isint working properly because it couldnt load the driver(code 31). ive tried reloading the drivers, unpluging the drive and repluging but nothing, windows just wont have it. what pisses me off is that it was ok untill i installed the official software. The drive works fine in DOS so its not broken, but the cherry on the cake was when the guy at hewlett packard wanted 23.00 to give me some technical help because its more than 12 months old.
    If anyone has any ideas i would like to hear them.
    THANKS FO ANY INFO..

    You really don't need the HP software.

    Try using Ahead Nero, and see if the software detects your drive.
