Manually Installing Drivers...and Proving A Guru Wrong In The Process

Question

So, I recently posted stating about getting my Roxio to work because it had no input. I found out that it was the drivers that were causing me problems (or would be, if they were installed)

 

So, How do I MANUALLY install the drivers for Roxio, either from the disc or from a file?

 

 

And that whole "proving a guru wrong" part?

 

In that post I mentioned above, the guru that helped me (grandpabruce) stated the drivers are installed automatically:

post-110849-0-27404300-1374830466_thumb.png Notice the distinct lack of drivers being added DURING the install process

So, I believe that the guru was, in this one case, wrong.

So what does Device Manager look like after you plug in the device?

 

Device Manager never shows a device that's not connected,whether the drivers are in your system or not.

 

I've installed both the SD version and the HD version and everytime I've installed the drivers have been also.

 

The correct sequence should be run the disc,reboot and then plug in the device.

Once the device gets plugged in,after the disc is run,the drivers should load and you'll then see it in Device Manager.

This process has worked for countless people so I don't think there's a flaw in it.

It wouldn't be the first time I was wrong, but in your thread, I was not wrong. See Terry's post, right above mine. ;)

 

Have a good day. I won't be trying to help you, anymore.

yes, I switched it out because I thought that was the source of the problem I was having at the time. But the wire only made it worse by not recognizing the Capture box at all.

 

I would also like to add that grandpabruce was not wrong, and that I have apologized to him for any offense caused.
