Every Single past driver version of catalyst is not available to download

Ive just been on the AMD site to download older driver versions that worked correctly on my 5850, but every old version link i click on has no driver download there. Whats going on?

Hi James Bird - If you are referring to the Download Drivers page, you may want to contact the AMD webmaster at If you are referring to another page, let us know. If it's on Developer Central, we can check into it.

Hi Ron,

I’ve just gone to the past drivers page and guess what! The links are now there. Please don’t be such a **** in the future if someone points out an issue and just accept there was an issue. Rather than an email trying to make out there was never an issue (****). Your attitude match’s AMD’s attitude to drivers that as my card is an 5850 that looking to upgrade in the next week or two i was going to take the risk of buying another AMD card. Now not a chance. Cheers **** Head!, all the best.
