I am using win2k and i cant load the drivers for HL-DT-ST CD-RW GCE-8400B.
I tried the driver on the LG website and still its not working.
Anyone got an idea why?

Are you sure a driver is even required for that drive.

Most drives do not require any kind of driver at all.

Just physically install it, start the computer, verify that DMA is on for that drive & IDE channel.
Win2K may set up DMA correctly automatically, it may not. A visual check never hurts.

That's all you should need for it to work.
