Re: unable to enter cd into my new laptop with vista...

If you are downloading the vista drivers, why are you loading the cd?

Just double click the driver download to install.

If you are wanting to install additional printer software that came on the driver cd, you can most likely download the software updates at the same place you downloaded the drivers.
