    There is more to SCSI than scanners, actually scanners are the lesser functionality of the SCSI bus. And sometimes some things are called SCSI even when they are not :p

    Do you have a RAID controller. Or a SATA controller? Or did you install some virtual CD software like Alcohol or Daemon Tools?

    Im almost certain i dont have a RAID or SATA controller just to check it goes in to the pci slot right? i do have nero, nero has imagedrive but its not enabled so i guess it wouldnt be that.

    1 more thing is i went on to my device manager and the actual thing with an exclamation mark is under scsi and raid controllers called

    VOB InstantDrive Controller if that helps.

    VOB InstantDrive is exactly what I was talking about - it is a virtual CD drive the pretends to be connected to a (virtual) SCSI controller.

    It is a part of the Pinnacle InstantCD/DVD suite.

    the thing is when i try to update driver.. through device manager with the cd in the drive and even try specific location (dvd/cd drive) it still says hardware did not install properly.

    What CD?

    You will need to reinstall the Pinnacle software to (re)install the "drivers" for this thing. Or uninstall the Pinnacle software completely to make it go away.
