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 purchased windows 7 64-bit from a store and tried installing it. Every time i get to the setup it gives the generic error: "load driver, a required cd/dvd drive. Device driver is missing". 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.

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.

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.

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?

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.

Required Device Driver Can't Be Installed Issue

I purchased the download version from my son's university to update his lenovo t61. I go through the entire process of download and creating the upgrade dvd. When trying to run it i first get the dvd device can't be written to. The school then told me to copy the files to my desktop (box1, box 2, and win7-p-retail_en-us-x86. When i run from desktop it completes 1) copying windows file, 2) gathering file settings, and 3) expanding windows files.

It then fails with a generic 'required device driver cannot be installed' and it ends the upgrade. I am trying upgrade vs custom. I've also downloaded and burned the dvd multiple times to make sure that wasn't the problem. Is something in vista stopping me?

Error - Windows Installation Cannot Continue - Required Driver Not Found

"windows installation cannot continue because a required driver could not be found" error when installing windows 7 ultimate over windows vista home premium 64-bit. No additional information is given, so i have no idea what to do. I am on the bizspark program and i am trying to upgrade from windows vista home premium 64-bit to windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. I downloaded the iso file from bizspark and ran the upgrade. After a while, i receive this error message:

"Windows installation cannot continue because a required driver could not be found"

There is no additional information, so i have no idea what do to correct the situation. I have run the iso install from my hard disk, an external hard drive and also from a dvd. I get the same error every time.

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.

Error - Windows Cannot Load Device Driver Code 31

Error "windows cannot load device driver code 31" with realtech lan port and pantech um175 usb. Just built a new deluxe windows 7 system two weeks ago. I loaded windows perfectly on may 5 . I also did a hardware disk driver update and everything worked great. Automatic security updates took place one week later on 05/12/10 and my realtech rtl8111dl lan port and my pantech um175 usb broadband model stopped working. Both say the driver is not installed or working.

I tried re-installing both multiple times without success. Occasionly the device manager will say invalid parameters. I can usually correct this type of thing but i can't get any internet connection device to function well enough to get connected for analysis or updates.

I have downloaded the latest drivers on another computer and tried them unsuccessfully. Each time i try to reinstall, the device gets one number higher. I am up to #5 behind the realtech lan controller name. I am out of ideas. Can you help. Thank you in advance!(Windows 7 ultimate 64 bit, biostar th55b-hd, i5-650 cpu, 4 gb ocz memory)

Unable To Load Device Driver Error Code 39

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39) this applies to the generic disk drives not the dvd drivei am running windows vista service pack 2. For reasons unknown to me i got the error code 39 on my dvd drive and my generic disk drives after a reboot. I uninstalled the software i had just installed. Didn't change a thing. Anyway, i was able to go into the the registry and delete the upper and lower device filters for the cdrom and now have my dvd drive back. I tried running system restore and it won't work.

It completes ok. But says it encountered an error so could not restore the system (this is regardless of what date i chose to restore to). This is the second time this error 39 has happened to me and a system restore fixed it the first time. My hard drive is listed in with the drives with the error 39, but doesn't have the same error, although it uses the same drivers.

I know this is an issue with the registry. But i am leary about deleting the limits filtering for the generic drives for fear of losing my hard drive. Now, my question is: if i remove the upper and lower filters for the disk drives and reboot, am i going to hose my hard drive?

Cannot Access Cd/dvd Drive Missing

Hp dv6646us laptop upgraded to windows 7 - retail version 3 or 4 mos ago just noticed my cd/dvd drive is missing, it is not listed under the device driver i tried several online fixes to no avail. I plugged in my flash drive which is usually drive g and the drive g flash shows up and the cd/dvd drive e, also ! But the drive e (cd/dvd) shows the flash (again) as the subdirectory.

The usb flash drive works fine and is accessible but even though the drive e (cd/dvd) shows up in the device manager (when my flash is plugged in) i can not access the cd in the drive i am somewhat computer literate but afraid to mess with too much that i don't know anything about.

Cd-dvd Drive Missing Or Not Visible In Computer

Latest version of cdrom.sys driver is correctly installed and detected in "device manager". Reinstalling is not helping. High-low filters solution does not apply. Filter are not present. When opening the key with regedit. Window 7 automatic troubleshooter detect the problem with the statement "the drive is not assigned a drive letter" but cannot assign a new letter.

"Computer management" detects the cd drive but the drive letter is missing and the assignment a new one is not allowed: when trying to assign a new drive letter manually, the new letter assigned shows in the screen for about one second and immediately disappears again. Different drive letters have been tried in case standard "e" could be somehow locked by some other software or virtual disk.

Using "computer management" i can mount the cd drive it in a folder in other hard drive and explore/operate cd contents without problem. I am using this for the time being as a temporary solution for having access to information in my cds/dvds. This is happening in asus k52jr laptop with windows 7 home premium-64. Dvd-cd driver is a hitachi hl-dt. St dvdram gt30n.

Realtek Driver Won't Load With Ati Radeon Hd5670

Realtek driver won't load with ati radeon hd5670 - defaults to hdmi - no sound i built a system using an intel dx58so motherboard and gigabyte ati hd5670 1gb. The motherboard has on board audio, and it is enabled in the bios (checked multiple times on many reboots). Sound was working fine for a week (system was built last week) but suddenly went out. On reboot, device manager shows high definition audio device only. Clicking the volume icon shows digital audio (hdmi).

I do not have an hdmi ready monitor, and i do not have an hdmi cable plugged into the video card. I found previous solutions online that mentioned ati's hdmi driver tries to take over as default and have implemented the solutions to no avail. I have tried installing the latest realtek drivers (5/15/2010), but doing so does not install the audio manager console.

Realtek is also not listed in device manager. I have previously uninstalled and disabled (separate reboots) the hdmi driver to see if then rebooting would cause windows to default to the on board audio with no success. Either the hdmi driver gets reinstalled automatically (microsoft driver version 6. 1. 7600. 16385), or i end up with a "no audio devices" message. The operating system is windows 7 home premium.

Any suggestions?
