Usb Lg Dvd Writer Not Working

I am having yet another usb problem with my desktop computer. I am running windows 7 ultimate 64-bit. For whatever reason, a previously installed usb lg dvd writer that i have had plugged into my computer for 6 months now has suddenly disappeared even though i have not installed/uninstalled anything except for the windows updates microsoft is recommending. I now find that the device is listed under the device manager's usb controllers section as an unknown device.

I have tried uninstalling the device and rebooting to try to get windows to re-recognize the device to no avail. When i plug the device into a different computer, it recognizes the device just fine. I have had a similar problem before with a seagate usb harddrive. The only way i was able to get windows to finally re-recognize the drive was to plug in a different drive of the same type-once i did, i could plug in the original drive without any problems.

It really seems like microsoft has some sort of "device cache" that is getting corrupted and once the device is unrecognized, there is no way to reliably recover. Can someone tell me how to flush this device from window's memory so that it will re-recogfnize the device? All of the windows help advice applies to devices that come with their own drivers but most of these windows storage devices use the built-in drivers in windows so there is really nothing that i know how to do to correct this problem.

Unknown Dvd Maker Error Message

Here is a frustrating problem i am having with windows dvd maker that no one can seem to explain. I have a new computer, less than a month old, running windows 7. I have been trying to burn some home movie clips on to dvds for various friends and family. I completed 3 or 4 dvds successfully. All of a sudden, during the burning process, i get to a point about 0. 3 to 0. 4 percent encoded when i get an error message that the dvd cannot be made due to an unspecified error.

Every fresh, new, out of the package disk i try to use ends up with the same message. The clips haven't changed, the filters haven't changed, the settings haven't changed, i've just done a few successfully with no problem, now all of a sudden it can't burn any more discs. What happened? What do i need to do to fix it?

Write Speed Of Drive Lg Super Multi Writer

When copying a dvd utilizing my lg supermultiwriter the write speed is several mb/s if i use my e drive to wirte. When writing to the g drive the write speed is . 01 mb/s. This is about 1 disk per week if you're lucky. Have checked with lg and am sending the device back. This is the second one to have this problem. Have all of the current software plus a fix suggested by lg. Am using dvd fab 6 premium as the software for copying.

Media does not appear to be a problem as it works with the e drive. Have changed connection cord to the g drive with no effect. Dma is enabled in th fab 6 program. There is no effect when speed is changed from recommended to fastest in the dvd fab 6 program. Have copied thousands of dvds but never seen this problem before. Any suggestions?

Error Message When Try To Install New Software

I recently bought a dell laptop that has turned out to be a huge mess. When i first got it i immediately had to reinstall windows  7. I have had to reinstall it twice. Now the computer will not allow me to turn on the firewalls, i get an error message and anytime i try to install new software it will not let me. I can't even download any new virus software or upload from a disc.

Dell wants to charge me a boat load of money just to try and fix it. The computer is still under warranty but they will not cover what they consider to be software issues. I will wind up paying half of what it cost me just to fix a problem that clearly happened at the factor. Are there any suggestions for this problem?

Error Code 646 Message When Install Office Service Pack 2

Since i mostly use my laptop computer at home, is it necessary for me to have the 2007 microsoft office service pack installed on my laptop? If i need to have this update installed, how in the world can i do so without constantly encountering this error code 646? I currently have the windows vista home premium edition. Over the past several weeks, i have made over twenty attempts to install this office service pack and every single attempt has failed. Can someone please give me some help in having this particular windows update installed in a more simplified way than what is being offered?  I'm beginning to find this whole situation not only frustrating, but also rather boring.

Win 7 Install Dvd

I recently bought a laptop that came with windows 7 pre-installed. I am looking to get a full install dvd set up so that i can re-partition my disk and reinstall windows onto one of two partitions, while installing linux on the other. I have a legitimate product key and i have installed the usb/dvd tool but it requires that i have an iso image to use. Is there somewhere on the microsoft site where i can obtain this for use with my legitimate key? Also, does a "system recovery disk" include a full install that can help me out in this situation?

How To Install Win 7 From Microsoft Dvd?

If you look at the answers forum concerning "ie8 link not working" problems you will understand why i am asking this seemingly simple question. Note the many comments claiming the problems are the fault of having av software on the hard drive. Or not having formatted the hard drive more than once etc.

This will be my forth install because of continuing ie8 link problems since i started this effort in early nov as i tried to install win 7 64 bit and of course the ie8 that is tied to and part of win7. I desperately want to avoid install number five since it takes better part of a full day to save my data, do the win os install of xp then the full install from the upgrade dvd. After doing the win 7 install i then spend the hours re-installing all mu other programs. I do have a full vista so could install that first instead of xp if it would make a difference. I think xp would go faster.

What i need is factual and correct instructions on all the items i need to consider. I have specific questions about when it is saft to install anti-virus software and when i must remove the av software and even run the special programs to completely remove the av software. When is it safe to connect to the internet when i do not have av software. What else must i to do avoid this recurring problem.

Win 7 Only Boots With Install Dvd In Drive

A few days ago i made the academic purchase of win 7 64 bit upgrade. The first time i installed it, it worked fantastic, with the exception that i could not activate it because i had done a clean install and i was informed i could only use my key for an upgrade over an existing win xp or vista installation. Ok, so next i cleaned a copy of win xp 32bit that i use for basic net browsing and office work.

I then installed win 7 64bit upgrade over that. Everything seemed perfect until i removed the installation disc. (Activation went fine this time)the next time i booted the computer i was greeted with:windows could not start because the following file is missing or corrupt:

system32
Toskrnl.exe.

Please re-install a copy of the above file. Now, i did do quite a bit of searching and reading about this issue with win xp and vista, but i did not find any information about this with regards to win 7. Furthermore, i have no problem booting win 7 when the installation disc is in the drive. The pc attempts to boot from the dvd by asking me to hit a key, and when i do not, it brings up boot menu allowing me to choose what to boot.

I pick windows 7 or wait 25 seconds and it auto-chooses and boots just fine. While i can live with this, it is certainly not an ideal solution. Ny ideaslso, i have already attempted to use the installation disc to evaluate and repair the boot sequence but it always informs me that there is nothing wrong and nothing to fix.

Cd/dvd Driver Issues - Win7 64-bit Pro Install

Cd/dvd driver issues in the beginning of windows 7 64-bit pro install. Installer will not let me move on until i find a driver for my dvd drive. The only drivers i can get to show up on the list are 64-bit drivers.

I'm upgrading from 32-bit so it won't let me use my vista cdrom drivers.
I have a sony optiarc rw ad-7170s firmware 1. 03 dvd drive
I created the bootable iso myself because of the issue with the digitalriver install
I burned the iso on 2 discs at 2 differnt speeds, didn't fix it.
Dvd is plugged into a sataraid pci card.

I'm almost sure it'll let me through if i can get my hands on the basic 64-bit cdrom drivers. I can't even find them online though.

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.

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.

After Win7 Install Should I Install Programs Then Backed Up Files ?

After windows 7 complete install. Should i install the programs then the backed up files or the backed up files then the programs. Windows 7 complete install. Should i install the programs then the backed up  files or the backed up files then the programs. I saw where microsoft recommended installing the backed up files first then the programs so the programs know where the files are located.

I would think installing the programs first would be better to minimize defragmentation. Os then programs, then files.

Ie Error Message

I'm currently running the latest versions of internet explorer. I've checked for any updates and i still can't seem to get rid of this error message. It will pop up as soon as i open internet explorer. The error message: a program on your computer has corrupted your default search provider settings for internet explorer.
 
Internet explorer has reset this setting to your original search provider, aim search (slirsreddirect. Search. Aol.com)
 
Internet explorer will now open search settings, where you can change this setting or install more search providers.
 
I've done a search on the forums and the one topic that it came up with suggested installing the bing search provider and setting that to the default. I've added the bing search provider but unfortunately it will not let me remove aim search as the default provider. Can anyone help me get rid of aim search which i'm thinking is the problem that's causing that error.
