Default No floppy drive

Okay, I know I'm a computer dork....I know I turn it on, follow the download directions, etc and it usually works.

My problem is I have an HP 8200 CD-writer I received a few years ago and it worked fine on my old computer. I recently purchased a Dell (w/ Windows XP) and went to install the HP CD-Writer program on it. I grabbed the installation floppy and surprise!!! MY Dell has no floppy drive!!! Now I can't install the program to run the software.

Anyone have any idea if the installation is available on-line somewhere? I've checked the HP site and couldn't find anything to help me.

I went to the HP site and found the drivers for your model of burner in about 15 seconds...

they are there... click support and drivers.. type in HP 8200 cd-rw and VOILA,,, you will be given options,,

added is a URL to usb if the drive is external..
