3>Choose and Open Properties on the "Sony CD-RW CRX160E" Drive

4>Choose the Driver Tab
5>Click the "Update Driver..." Button
(Hardward Wizard Window Opens)
6>Choose "Install from a list or specific location (Advanced)"
8>Choose "Don't search I will choose the driver to install"
(The Menu should change and show several Generic CDROM Driver Options)
