Win 7 Asking For Dvd Driver, But It's Already Seeing Dvd Drive


Windows 7 asking for dvd driver, but it's already seeing the dvd drive. I am installing windows 7 pro on a dual xeon 5500 motherboard by supermicro. I have built a raid 1 array from embedded bios applications. Windows starts to install , after i enter the country english etc it gives me an
Error message saying "windows needs the dvd drive driver", but windows already sees the dvd drive. Is it really asking for raid drivers? When will it ask for raid drivers? In what form will it want the drivers (there is no floppy port on this motherboard.

Load Driver - A Required Cd/dvd Drive Driver Is Missing

I tried to do fresh install of windows 7 ultimate 64 bit version (pls don't recommend 32 bit, as 64 bit support is the main reason for me to switch to win7) on my home pc and installer is requesting for additional driver. I've seen similar problems in other forum threads, however responses does not really help me.

My hw configuration is:
Msi p35 platinum + q6600 + 4 gb ram + few sata hdds + nvidia geforse 9800 gtx, i've downloaded all latest drivers from msi site. I even manage to extract drivers, which require installation (such as all inf drivers, etc). However, windows installer is rejecting all drivers (it allows to select driver but throwing "no new driver found" message after i press "next" button).

So, here is summary of my biggest frustration:
1. Why windows 7 installer rejects all latest drivers?
2. Why windows 7 upgrade advisor is saying that all devices on my computer are windows 7 compatible (on 64 bit report)
3. Why windows 7 installer does not mention device which requires new driver?
4. If microsoft is planning to run qa on its customers i'd like to get my fees!

Required Cd/dvd Drive Device Driver Is Missing

Cannot install windows 7 64bit dvd from boot (a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing". I have a unmodified gateway computer model gm5632e utilizing the g33 express chipset from intel.

I cant get anywhere else in the setup. I understand that there may be an issue with the sata drivers. I am also sure im not the only one with this problem. Any help is much much appreciated.

Error - A Required Cd/dvd Drive Device Driver Is Missing

Windows 7 upgrade ultimate 64bit from windows vista home premium 64bit - error with "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing. I can see many posts for this problem, but the different solutions all confuse me. I am not a pc techie. I was trying to run windows 7 64bit ultimate upgrade from windows vista 64bit home premium on my pc. Before i ran windows 7 upgrade using the 64bit disk i bought from a retailer in sheffield england, i checked on the microsoft website and downloaded windows upgrade advisor.

This reported a number of minor issues, which i dealt with. It did not report any issue with my motherboard or cd/dvd device. I also downloaded easy transfer, but as i had recently rebuilt my pc i did not have many files to copy over so i have not yet used it. I have now rolled back the install, after getting very frustrated trying to obtain the "driver"some of the postings on the web suggest:buying an external usb cd/dvd device. I might do this and try again getting an update for ite it8211 ata/atapi controller driver - whatever that means usb install option involving ripping the disk into a iso image and then making a bootable usb stick.

Why on earth do i need to do this? Surely using a usb external dvd/cd device and putting into that the windows 7 upgrade disk will do the same job?More important what is an iso image? How do i create it? Why should i have to do this?This software has cost me gbp180. 00 when i bought it from currys retail store sheffield uk w/c jun 21st 2010, and i cannot get it to work. It is not at all satisfactory! I deliberately waited till now before buying to make sure a all the bugs were ironed out!

Obviously they are not!My pc was bought new from mesh in may 2009 and the build detail is:mesh desktop pc model xgs pii 955amd phenom ii x4 955 black quad core processor am3 3. 20ghz, 8mb cache ddr2/3asus m4a78-e mainboard amd 790gx hybrid crossfirex - am2+ phenom ii, ddr2- atx8192mb 800mhz dual channel ddr2 sdram2 x 750gb serial ata2 hard drive with 3mb buffer (1. 5tb) raid 0 configuration (stripe)samsung 22x dual layer dvd writer super format +r/-r/rw/ram this shows in device hardware as tsstcorp cddvdw sh-s223b scsi cdrom device.

The driver is located in c:windowssystem32driverscdrom.sys1gb ati hd4890 graphics accelerator hd 3300 gpu - hybrid crossfire xpcie gigabit lan controller featuring ai net 2 - asus m4a78 proi will also try to call microsoft support on 0844 800 2400 using access code 1233 when prompted. However, i wonder if anyone else who has had the same problem with a similar machine can advise how they sorted out the issue.

Asus Drw 22b2s Cd/dvd Drive Driver Error

When installing windows 7, i have finally managed to get past the installation screen without it blue screening (that, however, is a whole different story) and now it stops before the installation begins, complaining that the cd driver can not be found. It then proceeds to look for the driver (on the cd drive, no less, proving to me that it must be working decently enough) and finds nothing. Browsing for more folders reveals nothing.

System info: i'm installing the 32-bit version from from a dvd onto an old machine with an 80gb hard drive and sufficient ram. The only dvd drive is an asus drw 22b2s cd/dvd drive, for which there are no drivers available online, nor did it need any to run on windows 2000 which was the previous os on the machine (however i've wiped the hard drive for the installation). The copy of windows 7 is a legit version, but still won't install. I've been browsing through other topics here and on different sites and none of their solutions work. Is there a way to get around this - or better yet, a solution?

Setup Hangs - Required Cd/dvd Drive Device Driver Is Missing

Windows 7(ultimate) setup hangs: "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, cd, dvd, or usb flash drive, please insert it now. " First my hardware i'm trying to get installed:

Gigabyte ga-ma790fxt-ud5p
4 wd5000aaks sata 500gb drives configured as raid5 connected to the sb750

When i start the setup, everything is fine until i hit "install now". Afterwards i'm delighted with 5-10 min. Of "setup is starting", which is followed by "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, cd, dvd, or usb flash drive, please insert it now. "

After that i provide the "ahcix64s.sys" which is the proper sb750 raid driver.

I tried the versions from: http://america. Giga-byte.com/filelist/driver/motherboard_driver_raid_amd_sb7xx_bootdisk_win7-64bit.exe

And the one from amd: https://a248. E. Akamai.net/f/674/9206/0/www2. Ati.com/drivers/whql_sb7xx_raid_vista_3. 1. 1540. 127.zip

Both with the same result: "no device could be found. Make sure the driver files are correct and located on the driver installation media"

Just a side note: i'm installing from a usb flash drive, which has worked already, when i connect a single sata drive in ide mode to the gigabyte sata chip (jmb322); however this is not my desired config, i need to run the system from the raid.

Code 52 Driver Error - Lg Cd/dvd Drive Won't Install

I recently got a new computer. I am using windows 7. When i got it a couple of weeks ago the cd dvd drive worked fine. I have and lg super multi dvd rewriter 22x model gh22ns40. When installing a western digital external hd, i contacted wd customer service and the technician had me change some things and since then my cd dvd drive will not work. When i go to computer, the cd dvd drive is not listed. When i go to devices and printers and click on the pc icon the hard ware list shows the cd dvd drive with a yellow exclamation mark. When i pull it up the message reads, "windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)"

I uninstalled and reinstalled the drive with no success. I down loaded the current driver from wd with no success. I tried a system reset for a date when the drive was working, and that didn't work. I can't use the instillation software that came with the drive because the cd dvd drive doesn't work. I am sure that there is a switch or button some place that needs to be changed to for this function properly, but i can't find where it is.

Windows Dvd Maker Won't Recognize Dvd Burner

Windows dvd maker won't recognize a dvd burner when a internet usb drive is hooked up to computer, how do we fix this?

Dvd Maker Cannot Create The Dvd

I'm getting this like everyone else on a windows 7 64 bit. The dvd burner is turned on, working, etc. I have 251 gb of free space. The problem is that this error message is so worthless, i.e. No real specifics like "out of space" , "codec error", "invalid input file", "hey, i just don't like you"  . There is nothing to work with. The input is a home movie avi which plays just fine in windows media center. The "just die for no apparent reason" point seems to be 38% in windows media center and 17% in windows dvd maker and the blank disk is kicked out.

If nothing else microsoft ought to build a fix that at least dumps some useful error messages about the failed process so there's a direction to take. At least under dvd maker the status was "encoding" and it dies during that. Windows media center tells you nothing, but the vague error. Oh, yes i did try again after a fresh re-boot and am running nothing else. Same problem.

Cd/dvd Drive Stopped Working - Drive Cannot Start Code 10

The drive did not respond in a fixed time to the access attempt 1100:012a, 1100:022a, 1100:032a, 1100:042a. My cd/dvd drive stopped working. When i attempt to reinstall the driver, it fails. On the drive properties, i see "drive cannot start code 10". I have replaced the drive, and the sata data cable, and still have exactly the same problem. I have run the psa test and it revealed the error code listed int he title of this message.

Missing Cd/dvd Device Driver

Win7 x64 boot disk results in "missing cd/dvd device driver ("a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing)". I'm doing a full install (custom) of windows 7 from a nec3520a cd/dvd and a dvd burned from the downloaded (twice) student file for windows 7 x64.

I am unable to get past the point of having "no apparent" driver for my dvd. As stated earlier, after i click "install" on initial screen (this is after the "loading files" screen which runs for a couple of minutes loading win7 files), i get an error screen saying "missing cd/dvd drive driver", then directions to install a disk/dvd/whatever with the driver.

If i just click next, it looks for a driver, doesn't find it, and then offers me a selection menu for different drivers( all of which are blank, there are no drivers listed). I then have an option to "rescan" for updated hardware, i suppose, or "browse" to go find the driver.

I have, and can't get any sort of driver for my nec3520, which i've been using for a couple of years now; it's supported directly by windows built-in drivers. Nec doesn't even provide a driver, for 32 or 64 or anything. I suppose this whole thing has to do with my "custom" install from a bootable dvd of the x64 version, but i can't find any way to get around it.

Cd/dvd Driver Not Recognized On Win 7

I received a new dell inspiron for christmas with windows 7 and the dvd/cd drive is apparently nonexistent in the software. When placing any disc in the drive it sounds like it is trying to read it, then stops. Under computer , d: is not even listed. Only c: now, on occasion, the computer will recognize the drive and it will work just fine, but not today, and i'm tired of working around that random chance. I attempted to reinstall it, as per the microsoft website instructions, and the drive is not even listed under device manager as the website led me to believe it would be.

Now, disc drives is, but there is no such option upon expanding or right-clicking to uninstall anything, nor does anything under disc drives seem remotely similar to what the website made me think dvd/cd rom drives would look like. So that's my problem. I would just call customer support, but that, uh, costs 60 dollars.

Driver Tsst Dvd Player

Recently when i try to use my internal tsst dvd-rw player, i receive a code 10 stating driver is missing, can not start the player. It was installed at the factory by dell, but the driver is not located on their re-install cd and it is virtually impossible to get the driver from tsst corp. Website. Were can i get this driver from or should i use the repair program within windows 7?

I tried the uninstall/ boot off/ re-boot to recognize the player, but it is not listed in my computer and my device manager shows a yellow question mark for the player. I tried the updated driver program, but it says the current driver is ok, which is totally incorrect. The dvd player is operational, as i have a dual boot system with linux installed via a separate partition and it works perfectly in linux.

Code 39 - Corrupt Driver Dvd-ram

I recently was trying to get a camcorder to work with my new win 7 pc. The cam device allows a web cam configuration via usb but a video capture driver must be installed. This driver would not install on win 7. I tried installing the device in xp sp3 mode by using the compatibility option in the properties of the .exe file while the file was on the cd. This still gave the error.

The capture will not work. Now though my dvd drive will not work either. I tried disabling it, unistalling it and each time the driver installs the same way and gives the code 39 error. I also connected a usb dvd drive and it show the very same error. The dvd drives show a yellow triangle in device manager now and neither show in my computer. I have tried reboot with out the device then boot again with a drive (either) and it always has code 39. What can i do now?I have a ghost image but i would rather find a solution incase it happens again.

Fixing Cd/dvd Drive

My cd drive has been missing for several weeks, and do not know exactly when it disappeared. I went through the deleting upper and lower filters as most places say, then rebooting, and it didn't help. I have created a new reg file and merged, and that brought the drives back, but they did not show that a cd was in. It has since disappeared again, and i do not have lowerfilters.

I have tried system restore, but i always get an error code because it "cannot access the file". I have updated the firmware from the dell website, and ran several different virus scans. Itunes and my computer say the drive is missing, but device manager says it is functioning correctly and completely updated. My dvd drive is there, it is only the cd drive. I am running windows 7, and have a dell inspiron 1750.

Also, i checked my brothers computer, who has the same set-up, and his registry files are all identical to mine, and his drive works just fine.

Dvd Drive Disappeared

My dvd drive disappeared even though i stopped making virtual dvd drives for iso images. I thought upgrading to windows 7 might resolve the 2 problems rpc sever is unavailable and the dvd drive not detected. I upgraded to ultimate as my computer is windows vista home basic. Its compaq. Sorry for bad spelling. When i want to make a partition rpc server is unavailable. Dvd drive is not in device manager. The hardware and devices troubleshooter thinks i have no dvd drive. I have no iso imaging programs now but i need one.

Cd/dvd Drive Has Gone Missing

I have a new computer with windows 7 professional 64 bit and everything was fine but now my cd/dvd drive has gone missing. It's nowhere to be found in explorer and if i insert a cd or dvd nothing happens. I tried the troubleshooter but it tells me i don't have a cd/dvd drive. It's also not listed in device manager. I'm a complete non-techie type of person but was wondering if my drive has just gone kaput or maybe one of the leads internally has become disconnected. The computer is only about 3 months old. I have done all the updates that have been recommended. I would love it if someone could give me some ideas about fixing this.

Dvd Drive Is Very Slow

I encountered another problem with my dvd drive " it does not work properly, as i can see root folder of dvd disk, but if i try to open any sub-folder or copy any file from root folder it freezes. For instance, i tried to start ms office 2007 installation from dvd but can't even execute setup.exe from root folder (was patiently waiting for 1+ hour).

After some research on the internet, i removed upper filter settings from windows registry (there is no lower filter). It helped a little bit, so i can see content of sub-folders (after 5-10 mins of waiting) but, still can't execute anything. Appreciate your help to fix it.

Computer details:

Msi p35 platinum, q6600, 4 gb ram, samsung sh222a, few sata hdds, nvidia geforce 9800 gtx
Windows 7 ultimate x64 (clean install from retail box)

Peripherals setup

Ide:
Master: internal dvd-rw, samsung sh222a
Slave: none
Sata:
Sata 3-7 various hdds (all seagate of various capacity from 750 gb to 1. 5 tb)
Raid: ide
P. S. The same setup works fine with windows xp

Ps. There are few files in sub-folders (winxp opens them in milliseconds). Also, i checked ide controllers, dma is enabeled for all drivers. Even log on win7 indicates tons of "error on cd drive during paging operation" events (no errors on winxp).

P. S. Cd cable is standard 40 pin, labeled as "ide cd cable" by manufacturer (asus). I've tried dvd in slave and cable select mode.
