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.

The drive did not respond in a fixed time to the access attempt 1100:012a, 1100:022a, 1100:032a, 1100:042a. My cd/dvd drive stopped working. When i attempt to reinstall the driver, it fails.

I have run the psa test and it revealed the error code listed int he title of this message.

Change Os Drive Letter From D: To C:

Can i change an os drive letter from d: to c:? I have a desktop with a dual boot setup. Vista ultimate 64-bit on c: and windows 7 pro 32-bit on d: these are two separate hard drives. I want to run with only the windows 7 os and do away with the vista os. I can simply disconnect the unwanted drive and run a repair from 'boot with cd' to write a new bottmgr, but i am uncertain if this will work? Also will this process effectively reassign the drive letter of the windows 7 os?

If it does change the os drive letter to c: will all the applications etc run properly as they were loaded whilst the os was in fact a d: drive?

Briefcase Change Sync Copy In Drive

I have been using briefcase for years. I have the original files on the flash drive i wear on a cord around my neck. This particular style of jewelry brands me a geek and proud of it. I have on my desktop computer a set of briefcases. Every morning when i get to my office i sync the files on which i have been working. One touch, it's great. I have on my laptop at home a set of briefcases. Every evening when i get home i plug into my laptop i synch the files on which i have been working. One touch, it's great.

The only part that isn't great is the russian roulette i play with drive numbers. When i set up my new office computers i had several things plugged into the usb ports and the briefcase assined the synch to drive g: instead of drive e: so now i get to my office and plug in my flash drive. I change the drive to e: and synch the briefcases project 1, 3, & 4. Then i change the drive to f: and sync briefcases project 2 & 6. Then i change the drive to g: and sync briefcase project 5.

Yes, i can delete all the briefcases and start over - which is what i will do if i can't find a direct solution. But i would really prefer to finally get some control over the "sync copy in" column.

Also, why the "briefcase is in use on another computer" message. It's not in use on another computer; i am trying to use it myself. It is extremely annoying. If it was in the process of synching i could understand, but it's just sitting there, synced, waiting for me. The flash drive has been disconnected. I should not have to shut down windows explorer to use the files just because it's a briefcase instead of a file folder. Is there any way to stop this message from popping up every time i try to access a file - besides shutting down windows explorer.

How To Change Drive Letter To C For New Win 7 Upgrade?

How to change drive letter to c for new windows 7 upgrade from xp on new drive? Ok, so i was one of those guys who tried to upgrade from xp to windows 7 home premium directly from the dvd. After many errors from and a bad memory stick, and many activation failures, i upgraded to windows 7 from within xp. But, i installed windows 7 on a new drive, using custom as it states.

Now the only problem i have, before i go installing my applications, it that the windows 7 is on e drive. I pulled out the old ide drive that contained my xp, and now only have my sata drive. But i have drives e and f. How do i fix the drive letters, so windows 7 os, is installed on the c drive ?

How To Change Hard Drive Icon Images?

How do you change hard drive icon images? I have an odd problem that just occurred in windows 7. I have several internal hard drives and 1 external hard drive. The external drive has always had its own unique icon and the internal hard drives all have the same icon image.

But somehow, the external drive now has an icon image of an internal drive, and my largest drive, a 1. 5tb hd, is showing the icon previously used by the external hard drive. I can't figure out why this happened, or how to change this back to the way it was. There is no performance issue, its just confusing since i've seen that external drive image so long i automatically go for the image when in my computer or explorer, and now that means i'm often selecting the wrong drive.

I click on properties>customize then select change folder image and select a hard drive icon that i want for each drive but it never changes the icon. And i am pointing to a proper *. Ico icon image file. Anyone have any ideas on this issue?

Win7 Change The Drive Allocation Letter

I have a dual boot system vista 64 bit on c: (which i would love to get rid of) and i allocated b: as the drive letter for my windows 7 64bit op which is the default boot system. I've had one or two problems with installing ati drivers for one but my main problem seems to be the inability of w7 to recognize large usb drives (iomega- seagate freeagentgo) both should but won't be recognized.

I've tried disk management to change the drive letter (as b is supposed to be reserved for floppy drives) but it won't let me. I have tried to remove vista and restore images of 7 but they always fail, so without a massive reinstall how can i change the drive letter to anything but b. I do have a lot of drive configuration and cloning tools so if any ones ever been in the same boat help me i'm sinking fast

Programs Not Functioning Properly After Drive Letter Change

I am running windows 7 home premium 64 bit. When i first partitioned my hdd, the 2nd logical drive was labeled j:, which was the next available letter after all the optical drives and built-in flash memory readers. I prefer to label it d: (to immediately follow from the boot partition which is c:). I used the disk management feature to change the drive letter from j: to d: (and of course moving the rest of the optical drives and built-in flash memory ready by 1 letter).

When i run some programs, i get this error message: "there is no disk in the drive. Please insert a disk into drive deviceharddisk4dr4. " The options to click below that message are "cancel", "try again" or "continue". For some programs, like google chrome, microsoft works word processor and spreadsheet, clicking on any of the 3 options will allow the program to run normally.

For other programs, like windows live movie maker, clicking on any of the options will result in a "drive not ready" message and lead to more problems. For example, i cannot load any of my existing projects because i cannot get to the screen that allows me to navigate drives and folders to choose my file.

I uninstalled and reinstalled movie maker, but the problem is still there. Seems to me that it is not the individual programs that are causing the problem but something in windows 7 itself. How do i get rid of the error messages and get the programs to function normally? Do i have to edit the windows 7 registry? If so, what exactly needs to be changed?

Fixing Cd/dvd Drive

My cd drive has been missing for several weeks, and do not know exactly when it disappeared. I went through the deleting upper and lower filters as most places say, then rebooting, and it didn't help. I have created a new reg file and merged, and that brought the drives back, but they did not show that a cd was in. It has since disappeared again, and i do not have lowerfilters.

I have tried system restore, but i always get an error code because it "cannot access the file". I have updated the firmware from the dell website, and ran several different virus scans. Itunes and my computer say the drive is missing, but device manager says it is functioning correctly and completely updated. My dvd drive is there, it is only the cd drive. I am running windows 7, and have a dell inspiron 1750.

Also, i checked my brothers computer, who has the same set-up, and his registry files are all identical to mine, and his drive works just fine.

Dvd Drive Disappeared

My dvd drive disappeared even though i stopped making virtual dvd drives for iso images. I thought upgrading to windows 7 might resolve the 2 problems rpc sever is unavailable and the dvd drive not detected. I upgraded to ultimate as my computer is windows vista home basic. Its compaq. Sorry for bad spelling. When i want to make a partition rpc server is unavailable. Dvd drive is not in device manager. The hardware and devices troubleshooter thinks i have no dvd drive. I have no iso imaging programs now but i need one.

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.

My averatec 4200 laptop was just upgraded to windows 7. The dvd/cd drive worked fine when i installed windows 7, but for some reason it is no longer visible, anywhere.

Device manager - nothing
My computer - nothing
Hardware & sound troubleshooter - no device detected

I have tried everything i can think of. The dvd player hasn't been removed physically and reinstalled. Also, when i put in a dvd the player spins, but nothing is detected.

Dvd Drive Is Very Slow

I encountered another problem with my dvd drive " it does not work properly, as i can see root folder of dvd disk, but if i try to open any sub-folder or copy any file from root folder it freezes. For instance, i tried to start ms office 2007 installation from dvd but can't even execute setup.exe from root folder (was patiently waiting for 1+ hour).

After some research on the internet, i removed upper filter settings from windows registry (there is no lower filter). It helped a little bit, so i can see content of sub-folders (after 5-10 mins of waiting) but, still can't execute anything. Appreciate your help to fix it.

Computer details:

Msi p35 platinum, q6600, 4 gb ram, samsung sh222a, few sata hdds, nvidia geforce 9800 gtx
Windows 7 ultimate x64 (clean install from retail box)

Peripherals setup

Ide:
Master: internal dvd-rw, samsung sh222a
Slave: none
Sata:
Sata 3-7 various hdds (all seagate of various capacity from 750 gb to 1. 5 tb)
Raid: ide
P. S. The same setup works fine with windows xp

Ps. There are few files in sub-folders (winxp opens them in milliseconds). Also, i checked ide controllers, dma is enabeled for all drivers. Even log on win7 indicates tons of "error on cd drive during paging operation" events (no errors on winxp).

P. S. Cd cable is standard 40 pin, labeled as "ide cd cable" by manufacturer (asus). I've tried dvd in slave and cable select mode.

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.

Dvd Drive Stopped Working

I have had windows 7 premium home edition 64-bit on my computer for probably around 6 months now with no problems. Just this past week i went to put a cd in the cd/dvd drive and the drive wouldn't open. Now the computer says that it cannot find a cd/dvd drive plugged into the computer and to check and make sure that it is plugged in. After spending hours on the internet i couldn't find a solution. However, i did notice that when the computer powers on, the drive does work.

I can open the drive and the light blinks and all. About 5 seconds into the "windows starting" screen the drive will no longer light up and no longer open, almost like it was suddenly unplugged again. I used the microsoft fixit tool and it couldn't fix the problem. I also tried to go into regedit and delete the upperfilter value (there was no lowerfilter value that i could find) like i read on the internet. I restarted the computer and it still didn't work so i used the back up registry file that i made to restore the value.

I can't figure out what's wrong. As a side note i am not exceedingly advanced with computers. I know i did the regedit right by following step-by-step instructions but that doesn't make me by any means advanced at computing so please keep solutions on a step-by-step fashion if possible.

Boot Up From Usb Dvd Drive

I know it can be done, but my bios only has the option, apart from the 'obvious' ones, of booting from usb flash - is that the same as the external usb dvd drive? (Have to use external dvd drive as one in laptop defunct) if not, i will have to boot from a usb stick - have copied the instructions from http://www.Istartedsomething.com/20081104/tip-make-your-pdc-2008-usb-hard-drive-a-bootable-windows-7-install-disk/ to make my usb drive ready, but some sites say it has to be ntsc formatted, and also made bootable with the bootsect utility. Which is correct?
