Can I save all of my drivers on a CD?

    Is there a way to list all of the drivers that are installed on my XP Pro
    laptop? And gather them up and save them on a CD? And selectively install
    some of them on another laptop? How? TIA, Paul

    Go to your notebook manufacturer's website, download the ones you want for
    your OS, and then burn them to CD. That's the easiest way, unless there was
    one that came with the notebook. Then you could compare the release versions
    of the website ones to those on that CD.

    I need some that came with programs I downloaded and are no longer available
    online. Thus, I'd like to obtain all of the drivers that are on my old
    laptop. (forgive me, I'm a top-poster)

    My Drivers will identify all drivers, package all or some for storing and
    let you put them back when/if necessary.
