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.

Cannot Find 3rd File To Install Xp Compatibility Mode

With windows 7 in a brand-new pc, i went to http://www.microsoft.com/windows/virtual-pc/download.aspx after confirming that my pc will handle the software. One must enter their os (windows 7 64-bit ultimate) and language (english), after which 3 blue boxes appear. The user is told to download file#1, install it, then file#2 and then file#3. Everything works fine with #1 and #2, but the blue box for #3 on that page is not a hyperlink (as are #1 and #2). It says, "**enables windows xp mode for pcs" - and i suppose that it would, if it was a live url. It appears that someone has updated the webpage and inadvertently messed up the hyperlink. Either that, or i'm a dummy. Maybe both.
Any help appreciated.

Aiptek Dv4500 Cannot Find Driver

My aiptek dv4500 cannot be used in "live mode" with windows 7. I used it last night with a computer running windows xp, so it is not a fault with the camera. I can transfer files from the camera to the computer (video, pictures) but i cannot use the built in webcam with windows 7, it will not detect the driver. I downloaded the driver from the manufacturer's website, and also from the cd that came with the camera, and still, i cannot use it. The windows 7 compatibility website says that the dv4500 isfully compatible with windows 7. How can i get my webcam working?

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!

Cannot Find Driver For Playstation 2 Eyetoy Namtai

Windows 7 cannot find the driver files for the playstation 2 eyetoy namtai, even though i'm using the same files. I'm thinking that i'll need to find a way to install these items manually without the help of windows 7's installation wizard. Does anyone know how to do this or if anyone has any better ideas i'm open to them! I'm running at 64-bit, this is probably going to make a big difference.

Error - Failed To Find Driver File Path

I receive the error "failed to find driver file path. Error=ffffffffx[gle=0x00000003]" when trying to update from vista to windows 7. The upgrade gets to the 'updating files and settings' phase, then ends up rolling back to vista. Before this last install that failed i've updated all of my drivers, removed my antivirus software, used the mouse that came with my system rather than my wireless mouse, and unplugged all usb devices-basically everything i've been told to try.

The last thing i was told was that i'll have to just do a clean install. I'm very disappointed since one of the reasons i decided to buy windows 7 was that i would be able to upgrade and keep all of my settings.

Brother Hl-2140 - Windows Can't Find A Suitable Driver

I have a brother hl-2140 connected to my windows vista-32 business pc via usb. Prints great. It is shared. I have a second windows vista-32 business pc and installed the shared printer and it prints fine. I have a laptop with windows 7-64 home premium and i'm trying to install the shared printer. I have downloaded all current drivers via brother's website and used both disks that came with the printer (all os's on one disk and windows 7 as a separate disk). I've tried installing all versions of drivers to be sure. I've plugged the printer directly into the laptop and the printer prints fine.

When trying to install the shared printer, i physically point the laptop to the correct *. Inf file, but it always says that "windows could not find a suitable driver. " Just as a side note, brother states on their site that the hl-2140 is windows 7 compatible. I have seen many posts that contains 7 and xp issues. But i have not found any post for 7-64 to vista-32 sharing.

Cannot Find .inf Printer Driver For Canon Pixma Ip4000

I have a laptop running windows 7 (64-bit machine) that i want to print from. The laptop is wireless on a home network. The desktop is wireless as well and is running windows xp. The desktop has a canon pixma ip4000 printer hooked up with a parallel cable. I have installed the latest xp drivers for the printer on the desktop. The laptop can connect directly to the printer with a usb cable and the drivers will download automatically and it will print fine. However, i cannot connect this printer using the wireless system.

I can go on the laptop to the home network and navigate to the printer and try to install. It does an automatic search and says it cannot find the proper drivers. I can browse to the install file on my desktop, but it is an .exe file and not . Inf. I have run the .exe file and it installs too, but the printer installer on the laptop will not let me by the add . Inf screen to finish installing a wireless printer. Any suggestions?

Canon Imagepass D660 Laser Printer - Cannot Find Driver

I'm looking for creative ideas on my friend's current conundrum. He got a new $400 compaq pc from best buy loaded w/ windows 7 64-bit. All went swimmingly well until we got to his canon imagepass d660 laser printer. No 64-bit driver. Canon will never create a 64-bit driver for it. He loves this printer and does not want to abandon it. We can print to the printer from a laptop we converted from 32-bit vista to 32-bit 7. I'd share the printer from the laptop to the desktop but i believe that would still require a 64-bit driver.

I see only two options, unless someone can suggest another:

1. Repurchase win 7 at retail; wipe & reload the pc with 32-bit. Not sure if 32-bit drivers are available for the internal hardware. No cd came with the pc, either.

2. Return the pc and locate another pc with 32-bit loaded - probably via dell or hp online.
If there is any way to circumvent a problem where there is no 64-bit support for a printer but another networked pc can print via 32-bit, i'd love to know about it.

Win7 Doesn't Find Digitally Signed Driver From Windows Update

Windows 7 tries to find a driver from windows update in default. If i connect my printer, citizen ct-s310 by usb cable with a fresh window 7 (either x64 or x86), windows 7 can't find the driver from windows update. I know the following two workarounds.

Before connecting the printer, downloading the latest driver from the manufacturer, installing it and setting "device installation settings" to "never install driver software from windows update". In "devices and printers", "add a printer" and using "windows update", selecting "citizen ct-s310". Installing this driver.

My point is there is a digitally signed driver in windows update. Windows 7 should find the driver and install it even if we don't install the driver before connecting the printer. Any ideas?

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.

Can't Do Clean Install - Can't Find Drivers

My sister's computer crashed so she bought a new one and gave me the old one to fix so i can use for my son's homework. It's an hp g60 235dx2ghz dual core t42001mb l2 cache3gb ram320gb hdhad vista home premium sp1 (before it crashed)there is nothing on there i want to save. I want to do a complete clean install of windows 7. I bought the 32-bit version because i was told that would be easiest and most simple form to get any version of windows running again on the laptop.

The laptop won't boot regardless, so i wanted to try the custom install but it keeps telling me it "can not install the device drivers" and asks me to browse for them but #1, i have no idea which ones or where they are to browse-to, and #2, even when i look in the "my computer" area, it doesn't list the 320gb hard drive what-so-ever. Does this mean the computer (and my purchase of windows 7) is a total loss?
