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.

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.

However, i wonder if anyone else who has had the same problem with a similar machine can advise how they sorted out the issue.

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!

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.

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?

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.

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.

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.

Hard Drive Missing In My Computer But Visible In Device Manager

Hard drive missing in "my computer" but installed and visible in device manager. I have just purchased and configured a new computer, intel core i5 processor and asus p7p55d le motherboard with windows 7 64 bit home premium. I have 2 hard drives, 1 250 gig sata drive and 1 500 gig sata drive.
Windows is installed on the 500 gig drive.

In the bios i see both hard drives, in device manager i see both hard drives but in "my computer" the hard drive is missing, which means that i have no use of it. It is there as a scratch disk for the adobe suite of programs. I have tried to physically unplug the drive and re-install it, i have uninstalled it in device manager. I am at a loss why i cannot use this drive, does anyone know how to resolve this?

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.

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?

Error - "driver Is Missing" In Device Manager For Hp Printer

Original title: driver error message on device and drivers page for hp 309a multi function printer, i keep getting an alert message on my device manager showing an error for my multi function hp 309a printer. I have reinstalled the hp solutions software, and the software when downloading recognizes the pc is running windows 7. Furthermore, the printer works perfectly using wireless connection, when i print to it from word, for example. I keep seeing a yellow triangle on my pc device manager icon which suggests the driver is missing. How can it be missing when it is working correctly?

Upgrade Hangs At "setup Is Loading Drivers"

Upgrade hangs at "setup is loading drivers", then issues automatic login failure message. I received a copy of win7 ultimate at a ms roll-out show yesterday. I am using this to upgrade my vista ultimate machine so that i don't have to reinstall all of my software.

The upgrade proceeded through a few reboots, until it reached the point in install where it appeared to be transferring registry entries for installed applications. This required two reboots, the second a little over 60% of the way through the app step.

After this last reboot, the machine (thinkpad w500) hung on a screen with the text "setup is loading drivers". After a few minutes a message box appeared that indicated that the automatic logon failed. All i could do was press ok, which presented a black screen with a mouse pointer and nothing else. After a few more minutes the machine automatically rebooted from this screen. Then the above hang-up sequence repeated itself.

Following the advice in this link didn't help:

Windows 7 dies during installation

I used the safe mode menu to turn on logging, but could not see the log, because i could never get windows to start. Finally after bringing up the safe mode menu one more time, i selected debugging mode. Unfortunately this time i got a screen saying the "upgrade was unsuccessful. Your previous version windows is being restored. "

This successfully restored my vista ultimate, but i would like to know what i can do to ensure a successful upgrade from vista ultimate to win7 ultimate before i retry this. Does anyone have any ideas?

Network File Copy Hangs When Device List Changes

This is a problem with two parts.

Part 1: the first is that if i start a copy of a large file from a network drive to a local disk, and then, whilst that copy is happening, dismount a drive such as a usb drive, then there is a good chance that the copy will stall and never complete. The copy progress dialog remains, and continues to animate, however the actual copy process stops. This has happened ever since i installed win7 ultimate, and after this happens the only way out is to press the reset button. This leads me into the second part.

Part 2: once the copy has stalled, there is no way to cancel it, or to kill the process doing the copy. In the past, with winxp, i would use task manager to kill explorer.exe if something like this happened, but killing this "hung" copy seems to be beyond task manager with win7. From my reading, the act of killing a process is more of a request with win7 whereas with winxp it was a command
.
I have tried to use the taskkill from within a command prompt to kill the hung process. Taskkill reports success, however the hung process remains, as does the copy progress dialog. My last resort is to restart the pc, but when i do this, i get a warning about having to force the process to die. I accept the warning and tell it to do so, but the pc never, ever, ever restarts. My only option now is to press the reset button. This problem has been here since win7 was released. I'd like to see a solution.

1. The copy process should not hang, or if it depends on a stable device list, then the dismount should be forced to wait.

2. If i am an administrator, i should be able to force any process to die.

Are there any other options?

Dvd Hangs After Loading Files And Starting Windows

Install of windows 7 h. P from dvd hangs after "loading files" and "starting windows"; just have mouse icon on black screen. I am trying to do a clean install of win7 home premium off of 32bit dvd.
Pc is 1gb ram athlon 1700xp zotac nvidia 6200 agp graphics card on a pcchips m810l mb with a 20gb primary hard drive 3gb secondary and lg dvdrom drive. My current operating system is win2k which is why i need to do a clean install from dvd as you cannot run setup from win2k.

First problem was "cannot boot from cd code 5" which i overcame by using "ultimateboot cd" which then allows win7 dvd to load. Now the problem is hang/stall. Win 7 sequence (all on black background) is "loading files" then "windows starting" with the 4 colours to make the flag then check of hard disk then nothing with large mouse icon in the middle of the screen. Cant move mouse and no keys work; left for an hour and no joy, just in case its slow.

I am running graphics through the vga adaptor and also have disabled floppy drive which i have seen as solutions to this elsewhere. Have unplugged all usb devices. Harddisk currently has win2k on it which i expect to reformat when i get that far. Do i need to format it primary disk so its empty first? Secondary disk has all my saved data on it to copy back later (also on flash drive; belt n braces.

Apple Mobile Device Driver Issue With Mtp Device Driver

How do i get windows 7 to accept the 'apple mobile device driver' instead of the 'mtp device driver'? It is driving me nuts! Frequent itunes sync issues occurring. Suggestion is that windows is treating as a camera instead of ipod which makes sense given it asks me if i want to import pictures each time i connect the ipod. I need to get it to update driver from mtp to apple mobile but cannot get it to do it as it keeps saying no compatible driver in the file.

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?
