Problems with Driver CDs
Its important to realize that sometimes a CD with drivers wont run as desired. For example, the ViewSonic CD didnt work for us. Sometimes, double clicking on the CD drive letter will start the CD and it will run then. Sometimes, it still wont run, but, possibly, the drivers are on the CD and fully usable. Using Device Manager to find the device and then selecting its properties and using the Update Driver to start the Windows Hardware Update Wizard will find and successfully install the drivers from the CD.
If you have difficulty installing a driver, try the various approaches: First, just try to run the CD that came with the hardware. Insert the CD and wait. If it doesnt autorun, double click on the CD drive letter and see what happens. Maybe, it will run and install the driver.
