Old Toshiba Laptop- CDROM and drivers


Beta member
Hey all,

I recently obtained an old Toshiba Satellite Pro. I can't access the CD Rom drive. It seems that the drivers aren't installed. I have searched the computer for the drivers and can't seem to find them. I'm wondering, in general, how are drivers installed if they are required for the drive to work.

Currently, I don't have Internet access on that laptop, and the CD drive itself wont open (though I did take it apart--no CD inside). I checked the system tab, and the drivers are not located where it says they are located. The laptop is running Windows 98.

It's been somewhat aggravating and any help would be much appreciated. Thanks.
