CD16ri Burner

hi, im new. im sorry to cause intrusion but recently ive been looking for cd16ri drivers because i had lost my CD. I’ve looked on HPs site but they have nothing, can anyone please help me or give me a driver on the HP CD16ri? thanks.

Here’s all the software I can find for that drive. But doesn’t your OS work without that software installed?

no, it doesnt. im on windows98 and it reads it as a regular CD Rom drive not a burner :|~ any help is appreciated
