Cd/dvd-rom Drive Device Drivers


So i'm trying to reinstall windows 7 after a long and bloody struggle with my motherboard (long story short, went to the field, sata controller died, got new sata controller, found out i might have possibly wiped my primary hdd, no backup) and after the "setup is starting. " Screen, it asks me for cd/dvd-rom device drivers. Seeing as i'm using a win7 disc to boot from, and it clearly read it enough to get here, and i highly doubt they even make cd-rom drive drivers anymore, i'm at a loss.
And for the record, the drive is a liteon ihos204 bd-rom. No other cd/dvd/bd-rom drives, either.
Thoughts? Opinions?

Nec Nd-3530a & Sony Ddu1615 Dvd Rom Drivers

Nec nd-3530a hh 16x dvd+/-rw & sony ddu1615 hh 16x dvd rom drivers. I've just upgraded to windows 7 and while the rest of the installation went fine, my 2 dvd drives are not installed properly and both give me this message: windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

Now i've downloaded the firmware from dell but when trying to run the executable files, i get an error message saying that the device needs to be present before installing the driver. Is there any way i can get the driver on its own to try and install it manually?

Dvd Rom And Rw Drive Not Detected

I installed fresh copy (no upgrade) of windows 7 last night and after the installation finish, i notice both drives were missing from my computer.

Dell dimension 9200
Missing drives - pbds- dvd+-rw dh-16w1s and tsst corp dvd-rom ts-353b

Under device manager - they appear with an !Exclamation! Over them, there is no window 7 drivers  on the dell support website for my computer. I have attempted to do the firmware upgrade but tsdnwin reports drive not found. I have deleted the drives from devices manager and shutdown then disconnect and reconnect the cables and boot, and the problem is still here. I have try diagnostics built into windows 7 and it didn't work. Drives are showing up in my bios, while booting. Is there anything else i can try?

Dvd-rom Drive Vanished

I am running windows 7 on my toshiba satellite a205-s7464. It ran vista native, however, i had been running windows xp for the past six months as my vista install kept corrupting. I have had many hardware issues with this system. Just in december i had my hd-dvd drive replaced. It worked fine for awhile, however, it was spotty here and there where discs would get stuck, wouldn't read, wouldn't burn, etc.

I was trying to install a program today and mid-install my entire computer froze. After rebooting my cd was stuck in the drive. I used a safety pin to get it out. Now it only ejects with a safety pin. It doesn't read any discs. In the bios it doesn't show my optical drive as existing. It shows up in device manager, but not in administrative tools - computer management. It doesn't read. Doesn't spin. Doesn't eject. Doesn't attempt at all.

I did a system restore, did an edit in the registry suggested on a website i found, deleted and reinstalled the drive. In device manager, windows tells me that my drive exists, is functional, and is up to date. However, my drive doesn't show up anywhere else.

I can take it to bestbuy, of course, but i really need to keep this for class. I'm pretty tech savvy and willing to try to do stuff myself, but sometimes i need a pointer on how to do it.

Oh and i can't find the "emergency open" button i just recently got my computer 6 months ago so this shouldn't be happening and i'm very computer literate so any suggestions would be appreciated!

Hl-dt-st Dvdram Gsa-t20n Ata Device Cd/dvd Drivers

I have recently upgraded from windows vista home premium to windows 7, the problem i am having is that my cd/dvd is no longer recognized by my laptop, oh yes i have an acer aspire 5720 laptop. There is now nothing showing when i open "my computer" just the hard disk drive info.

I have gone through this forum to see similar problems and even carried out the repair advice given but all to no avail, including uninstall and reboot and now its saying "device driver software was not successfully installed" please consult device manufacturer.

Well for one i don't know who the manufacturer is, and two it came with the laptop from acer so if they are the manufacturer which i doubt then which driver do i download from their site

Please can someone offer any other advice mainly:-

1/ who is the manufacturer of this device and can i download the driver from them

2/ since installing windows 7 why doesn't my laptop recognize the device

Also does anyone know why i have showing in my device manager: 2 x mobile intel (r) 965 express chips. 8. 15. 10. 1912 09/112009, i have given below the name of my cd/dvd. Here is the cd/dvd  make: hl-dt-st dvdram gsa-t20n ata device

" In device manager they indicate (windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware.

The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39) when i uninstall the driver and reboot windows, the same thing keeps occurring.

What can i do to get my dvd rom's to appear again so that i can use them?

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.

Cd/dvd Rom Wont Read Cds

I just upgraded from vista basic to windows 7 home premium on my laptop and now my cd-dvd rom won't read any cds i put into the drive. It still reads dvds fine so i'm thrown for a loop now. My drivers are all up to date as best as i can find. I know it's a cd-dvd rom because before i upgraded i had no problems reading cds and dvds. This is a problem because all my anti-virus and other programs are all on cds. I have no idea how to go about correcting this.

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.

Dvd Device Driver Blocked - Unable To Use Device Code 48

I get a code 48 message. I have an intel d945psn board that has run w2000 on a eide hard drive. I upgraded to windows 7 with a new sata hard drive clean install, but transferred files with pc mover. Now my dvd burner(s) don't work citing the infamous code 48 and saying that the software for this device has been blocked from starting because it is known to have problems with windows.

Aren't cd/dvd device drivers pretty standard, and included with the bios?  How do i deal with that problem. I have tried to update drivers through "driver access", but the problem persists. The device doesn't even show up in windows explorer or my computer, but can be seen in device manager and on the cmos menu. The same is true of my second, identical sata hard drive. It appears that some of my important system drivers have been blocked.

Installing Device Drivers

I am trying to install a controller using specific drivers which i have and every time i try to install them through the devices menu in control panel windows tells me that they are already up to date (even though the controller will not work). I've tried uninstalling the drivers which windows automatically installed and everytime i connect the controller windows installs the same drivers again without letting me cancel. Is there anyway to override this and install the drivers i want to install? I am running the windows 7 rc.

No Device Drivers Found

I'm trying to install windows 7, and have wasted multiple discs in the process, trying different speeds, different softwares, even different types of discs. My problem is i'm getting stuck with the "no device drivers found. " I've seen a few threads but i cannot find an answer that will work.

The last thing i thought i would mention is that i'm currently on windows xp x32 and i'm wanting to go to windows 7 x64. Can this be done? Do i need to fully uninstall windows xp with the windows xp disc before even using the windows 7 disc?

The Drivers For This Device Are Not Installed (code 28)

Am receiving the following error for two devices on my system, a usb 2. 0 hub and a bluetooth adapter. I ran the mister fixit applet which recognized the error, tries to install the drivers and comes back with an error. The devices themselves work fine because the system dual boots to xp and windows 7 and when i boot in xp it discovers the devices and installs the drivers without a problem.

I have tried uninstalling the devices and re-running "scan for hardware changes" several time to no avail. Have also run sfc and it reported no errors. I would welcome any ideas or suggestions to help resolve this.

No Device Drivers Found Issue

I downloaded the student edition of windows 7 home premium, i am currently running vista ultimate so cannot do an update and have to do a custom install. I downloaded it fine, ran it, it opens up fine with the blue windows 7 opening screen, i select install, then select custom install. In the next window i have an empty white box which i presume is supposed to list my hd's allowing me to select where i want to install windows 7. None of my hd's are showing up, i'm given the option to browse or scan, when i select this it gives me the message.

No device were found. Make sure that the installation media contains the correct drivers, and then click ok. Any suggestions?

Win 7 Cannot Load Device Drivers

I've been having a problem with windows 7 freezing, hanging and not starting up for the past several weeks now. For the first few weeks after i installed in, windows 7 worked fine, but all the sudden in began freezing and hanging.

I've eliminated the possibility of my hardware being bad or my drivers being wrong; i've run multiple diagnostics on my hard drive, ram and others (memtest86, spinright and checkdisk, all came back with good results) - i've also scanned for malware (found none) and tried system restores and even reinstalled the os twice. Each time the problems come back.

I enabled boot-logging and found that on most startups, windows fails to load many or some device drivers. How can i fix this? When the system starts up, it works alright, but usually hangs or freezes within an hour. Usually it freezes during the windows logo screen or the "welcome - please wait" boot screens.

I've also noticed that the machine is far more prone to hang and freeze when on high performance or when plugged into my ac adapter.

Dvd Drivers Stopped Working

The error i get in the device manager is "a driver (service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be providing this functionality. (Code 32)". I was instructed by tech support (microsoft) that my dvd drive is not supported by win7 and i need to upgrade the hardware. I begrudgingly did. I purchased a brand new dvd burner that is on the supported hardware and i get the same error. This system ran xp fine for years. Is there anyone that has experience able to assist on this? The first hour or so i spent on the phone was enough. I don't have that kind of time to burn on futile efforts. Win7 either supports dvd and cdrom drives or it doesn't.
