    DVD Driver and Encoder (WIN XP HOME)

    A fellow has an HP Pavilion 9900 and just upgraded to WIN XP. His DVD will not play. When he puts in a DVD disk, it says he needs a DVD driver and encoder. Where and how does he get one? Does it need to be specific to his DVD drive or will any work?

    He needs to go to HP web page and find the drivers for his CD, download and install them. He should also look for any others there for Windows XP. AS it is now, he is running on the "Generic" drivers from MS.

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Here are the Drivers for HP Pavilion 9900 At HP Webb Site.
    The computer should have came with the Software CD's that has the drivers for the DVD.

    Cowboy, they did a upgrade from 98 to XP, that is why they needed to go get the HP XP drivers.

    OH OK, well the Link I gave them above is for the WinXP Drivers. So that should do it.
