Load Driver: Required CD/DVD Drive Device Driver: HELP!

Question: Load Driver: Required CD/DVD Drive Device Driver: HELP!

Apparently, I am one of many who seem to be having this issue. And just like everybody else, I turned to Google for some answers. Here is my scenario (perhaps gregrocker could point me in the right direction?):

I am running on a laptop with the following specs:

Dell Studio 1735
32-bit Vista Home Premium, SP1
Intel 2 Core Duo, T8100 @ 2.10 GHz
250 GB SATA HDD, 5400 RPM
4 GBs of RAM
256 ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3650
8x Slot Load CD / DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive)

I downloaded the .iso image of Windows 7 through the software program at Penn State and burned it to a DVD. When I restart my computer and boot off of the DVD drive, I get the Windows 7 Installation interface. As the setup begins, I get an error message that says "Load Driver" across the top of the window, and says "A required CD/DVD Drive Device Driver is missing". I tried a few things to circumvent this issue:

1. I swapped out the installation CD with one of the CD's that came with my laptop that contains all of my device drivers. It found one compatible driver for the ATA/ATAPI Controller, and despite selecting it and hitting next, it didn't work.

2. I took the service tag from my laptop, downloaded each and every driver that it's associated with, burned it to an .iso, and swapped THAT out when I tried to install. Again, nothing happened.

3. I mounted the .iso onto an 8GB Cruzer and made a bootable flash drive. Upon trying the install again, I had the same problem.

4. I tried to burn the image again on another DVD-R and got the same problem.

I am completely out of options and have no idea what to do. Ideas? Any help would be appreciated.

Preferred Solution: Load Driver: Required CD/DVD Drive Device Driver: HELP!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer: Load Driver: Required CD/DVD Drive Device Driver: HELP!

Try extracting the ISO to Vista desktop to run Setup from there.

You can locate the driver in Vista's Device Manager SATA controller Driver info tab.

The fact that it would duplicate the error for USB flash install sounds like a malfunction.

Try removing 2 gb of RAM.

Check BIOS version to see if you have the latest.

Checksum the HASH of the ISO you downloaded to confirm it here: http://www.mydigitallife.info/2009/0...vd-iso-images/

I have this problem:
Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware because a previous instance of the device driver is still in memory. (Code 38)

The driver could not be loaded because a previous version of the driver is still in memory.

and now I am not able to connect any usb device to my laptop making it virtually impossible to use windows 10.
How do I downgrade to windows 7,have enough of the beta testing.
I even have a purchased version of windows 10 pro which I really regret buying, worst investment ever.

To say I am a bit of a 'noob' would be an understatement. My wife has a HP Pavilion dv9500, running Vista Home Premium. Her CD-drive stopped working and I researched the problem to find a fix. I read in forums I could delete registry files, and I did, but they were the wrong ones. So, her laptop shut down and would not boot past the initial startup screen.

I removed the HDD to see if everything was wiped off the HD, and it was. So, I decided to reinstall Vista, only to find out I did not have the recovery disk. I made a bootable USB drive and tried loading a fresh install of Vista that way, but I keep getting the following message, after hitting "install now":

"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.

Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step."


So, I downloaded drivers for both the dv9500 and the dv9628nr, because both are on the bottom sticker. However, none of the drivers would show up as compatible, or show up at all, actually. What am I doing wrong?!

Also, it is worth mentioning that I purchased Windows 7 Home Premium, because I plan on installing it after I get the current problem fixed. The cd-drive lights up and sounds like it is spinning, but it doesn't show up when hitting F9...

Instead of a new thread I thought I would ask here as I get the same issue saying no CD/DVD drive. Doing diskpart/list disk shows that there are no disks available, even though I have 2 drives installed( 1 ssd/1 hdd). One currently has windows installed, and one is blank. I am basically trying to flash an existing image from an identical workstation over. It wont let me use the image, install win7 from usb, install win7 from disc(using 2 different isos). I created the usb stick with a real iso through Windows 7 usub dvd download tool. I also inserted the oem driver disc, and it will not find that.

Any other ideas to try?

Answer:Required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing

What to try:

Change the BIOS setting from IDE to AHCI or RAID (if your planning to use RAID).

AHCI is for SATA components, HD, DVD etc.
If AHCI or RAID is set in the BIOS it will install the drivers.

Windows 7 is trying to find IDE drivers for a SATA DVD.

Change the BIOS and try the install again.

Some users have also reported that they solved this problem by deleting the recovery partitions that came with the computer.

If you still have problems with the DVD drive try installing with a USB memory key: http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials...ve-create.html

If nothing is working, try clearing your CMOS. There is usually an option in the BIOS to reset to defaults, or something along those lines.

Answer:A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing.

I'm not sure.

If it's the same as Windows 7, the most likely cause for that is corrupt installation media. As you're using a USB installer, the problem may be with the .iso itself.

If you can check the hash code on the .iso. that'd be the surest way to verify it.

Answer:"A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing"

Hi, James: Most likely the media you are using is incomplete or a bad burn of the DVD if you made the installation media yourself from the ISO download on digital river. There are no drivers missing. W7 has all the necessary drivers to install on your model. Follow these instructions and see if you can get W7 installed that way. I would use the MS ISO to USB tool. Make absolutely sure you get the entire ISO file when you see the download complete message. Sometimes it reports the download is complete and your ISO file is much smaller than what it said was downloading. Use the W7 pro product key you have. Use the Windows 7 USB/DVD installation tool to compile the ISO file you download from Digital River. Link  below. You need a 4 GB flash drive to use the USB method of compilation. http://download.cnet.com/Windows-7-USB-DVD-Download-Tool/3000-18513_4-10972600.html Then go to the PC's support and driver page to install the drivers you need. Link to the W7 ISO file downloads is below. http://forums.mydigitallife.info/threads/14709-Windows-7-Digital-River-direct-links-Multiple-Languag...

He guys,
im trying to install the new develp build of win8 (x86) on my asus eeepc 1005pe. This is a netbook which doesnt even have a cd/dvd drive.
So anyway, I extracted the iso on a bootable usb flash drive. I boot, and when I click install it just hangs for about 10 minutes and then it gives me this error:

I tried setting the bios from AHCI to IDE. This does not help, I even get a bluescreen of death when I boot up in the current win7 sp1 install. But anyway on google I read a lot about this problem and one of the solutions is to put it on AHCI.. but not for me as it was already on AHCI. Anyway IDE is not workin either.
So im kinda lost.. just recently I installed win7sp1 on this netbook without a problem. I checked the sha1 hashes of the win8 ISO and they are confirmed, so that is not the problem either.


Can anyone help me with this problem?

Hi there guys, im trying to install windows 7 on my friends Dell XPS 625, but I get this error message when I try and install it: a required cd dvd drive device driver is missing.

I have read that its some kind of AHCI problem and that downloading this: AHCI for Windows 7 (AMD RAID/SATA Drivers) and loading it on a USB stick whilst getting the error message will fix my problem?

Also do I have to extract the file in windows first before I put it on the USB? Because I have tried it on a USB and it didnt recognise it

Also the HD has been wiped clean with killdisk so he dosent have an OS right now.

Any help will be great, thanks!

Answer:A required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing

Yes, you have to extract the drivers and copy them to the USB stick. Once you've done that, start the Windows install and then insert the USB stick. When prompted for AHCI/RAID drivers, press the appropriate function key and browse to the flash drive.

I try to install Windows 7 Home Premium on an ASUS G75VW notebook - Original OEM dvd which is tested ok on other computers - not a dvd disk issue and I get the annoying error:
Windows 7: A required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing

The notebook doesn't have a dvd drive - it was completely removed for some reason.
It has 4 USB 3.0 only ports. No usb 2.0 ports.
I use external cd/dvd drive. In BIOS I can make the drives working in IDE/AHCI/RAID. My issue is why Windows gives the same error regardless if I use AHCI/IDE setting from BIOS? Where is the logic in this? Also I see all the three hard disk drives on the notebook regardless of BIOS settings except trying RAID because the user don't use it (yes they are really three - 1 ssd and 2 hdd). I will try using the ahci drivers from ASUS and say did they helped.

Answer:Windows 7: A required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing

Probably an anomaly due to the external HD, very doubtful it really needs that driver. Keep the SATA controller set to AHCI in BIOS setup, set HDD first to boot.

Use the lastest official installer for your licensed version from Step 1, written to bootable flash stick with tool from Step2 of Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7. Boot the Stick using the one-time BIOS Boot Menu key.

Stick with the steps in the tutorial to get and keep a perfect install. Delete all partitions during install using the Drive Options in Steps 7 and 8 of Clean Install Windows 7 to create and format new as you wish.

Put your network driver on the stick from the Asus Support Downloads webpage for your model PC so if the installer doesn't provide it you can install it to get online, enable Automatically deliver drivers via Windows Update (Step 3) then install all Important and Optional Windows UPdates, with reboots as required, until there are no more offered.

Once installed you can keep the flash stick bootable if needed for repairs. Just leave the seven installer folders untouched in the root of the stick. You can add/delete as many other files or applications as you want.

Okay, problem solved; I used the Win7 USB 3 Creator Utility.

Hi,

I have a known working image of Windows 7 on a flash drive.

However, if trying to install Windows 7 by booting from the flash drive I get "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing usb"

I have tried removing and reinserting the usb.

I found a link https://downloadcenter.intel.com/dow...reator-Utility

that is supposed to put the drivers for usb 3.0 in the installation files. That did not work.

I have tried downloading the usb files from the manufacturer Acer for usb 3.0 and then navigating to them via browse and found files that showed up, but that did not work.

I also tried installing drivers for AHCI, CardReader, Chipset by clicking browse and navigating to the hard drive. All to no avail.

I am now going to see if putting the USB driver files on the flash drive will work. Would this make a difference? And should I potentially try this with the other driver files as well?

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

My hard drive died yesterday, so I put another one in, and proceeded to install Windows from the same DVD disc, same computer, same DVD drive and same everything, only the hard drive is different. but I cannot install Windows 7 on this new hard drive. I am presented with an error message,A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing.and asks me to browse for a driver. but if I click on any option whatsoever, everything seems to freeze. my old hard drive and installation didn't give me this error message at all, in fact it installed seamlessly. how do I remedy this?

Because I couldn't get properly running some games like FFOW on my Windows 7 (not compatible) I decided to buy 64bit Vista Ultimate.
But while installation ,required CD/DVD drive device driver missing, message was shown.
I looked at some forums and found was problem also somewhere else for some other people...
I tried couple of things whitch didn't work for me but luckily I found a solution.
Here it is:



Thats what worked for me.

In BIOS setting (while start up press F2) at Advanced Tab there is a SATA Operation:AHCI (not RAID but I don't know, even RAID maight work) and SATA AHCI Mode: I changed from Legacy AHCI to Native AHCI.

As described at Item Specific Help Tab: Native AHCI will load option ROM, but legacy will not.

Before while instalation Wista Ultimate 64 bit on my Alienware x17 aftere while was message shown:

During install "required CD/DVD drive device driver missing"

After changing SATA AHCI mode in BIOS to Native AHCI while setup was soon shown field requiere serial number...GREAT!!!

When instaling I manually reboot couple of times when just black screen with blinking cursor was shown (and nothing was happening...)

Now my Vista 64 bit is fully intaled, thanks to all guys at forums to let me thing and inspired me to find (with a bit of good luck) solution.

I had similar problem like many of you, wish you good luck to make your system working (if you need to)

This may not be anything new but I am sure the model of this laptop is. I have the Retail Windows 7 Prof 64-bit and wanted to downgrade the Lenovo Yoga 3 Prof to Win-7 from Win 8.1. As Yoga 3 does not comes with DVD drive, I converted the ISO from DVD to a USB thumb drive. I started the NOVO to bios setting and disable Secure boot and Boot priorty through Legacy.... When Windows 7 gets started, the welcome screen only show "INSTALL" and immediately i did. Instead of processing the stage of showing the partition drive and selection, the screen show an error: "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." Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step. I tried to browse for the driver and the browse button only show C, D and X Drive where these drive are partition of the Yoga 3 256GB SSD. I had tried disable the UEFI and downloaded a couple of Intel series SATA ACHI family controller but neither one is helping to overcome the installation error. Please help your option to resolve.

I am seeing several of these Warnings in the Event Viewer, Windows System logs. These are Event ID 219, Source Kernel-PnP.

That said, I am not experiencing any crashes, freezes, BSODs, and everything on my PC seems to be functional. So perhaps I can safely ignore these warnings, but I prefer to get to the bottom of something in case it will lead to problems in the future.

I have done some online research on this event, and none of the suggested fixes seem applicable to me. I have been vigilant in keeping all drivers on my machine up to date. I've checked, and there don't seem to be any newer drivers available for any of my hardware. I also have the Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework service set to "automatic" startup.

The details of this event are below.

Any suggested action to remedy my problem? Thanks!

This has been a problem for over a year now. 140+ identical PCs running identical images, with identical keyboards. Some have the problem, some do not, and it's incredibly unpredictable.

PCs are HP Compaq Elite 8300 SFF running Windows 7 x64 Professional.

People will be working at their PC, hear the USB disconnect sound, and their keyboard will become unusable for 30+ seconds.

Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39) <-- This god for shaken message is stopping me from enjoying my computer.

The driver is MAT****A DVD-RAM UJ-861H ATA Device

And that up there is the error message, i havnt downloaded anything i just pressed the button on the cd/dvd drive and my computer shut down and when i turned it back on nothing it it worked.

Does anyone know how to fix this? Im practilly computer illiterate so please be easy on the big words and stuff =]

Answer:Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted

Please try the steps below:

1. Uninstall all third-party burning software, such as Nero and Roxio.

2. Perform a Clean Boot to test the result.

Clean Boot

========
a. Click Start, type "MSCONFIG" (without the quotations) in the Search Bar and Press "Enter" to start the System Configuration Utility.


Note: Please click Continue if the "User Account Control" window pops up.


b. Click the "Services" tab, check the "Hide All Microsoft Services" box and click "Disable All" (if it is not gray).
c. Click the "Startup" tab, click "Disable All" and click "OK".
d. Restart the computer and test the issue.


Note: Clean Boot is a troubleshooting step. If some programs have been disabled, we can re-enable them later. If you see the System Configuration Utility, check the box of "Don't show this message" and then click "OK".

Please test this issue in the Clean Boot environment. If the issue disappears, we can use a 50/50 approach to quickly narrow down which entry is causing the issue.

If the issue persists, please contact your computer manufacturer to check if the DVD drive is damaged.

If not, you may need to restore the system to its factory settings.

Hope it helps.

Hi,

Since the 11/18/2012 event viewer (Event ID 219, Task Category 212) has been posting a warning:

The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device WpdBusEnumRoot\UMB\2&37c186b&0&STORAGE#VOLUME#_??_USBSTOR#DISK&VEN (followed by name of USB device)

It only occurs on start up if I have a USB memory device plugged into a USB port. The USB memory device functions perfectly and the error never occurs when I plug in and out a memory device after boot up.

The error only occurs for memory devices like memory sticks, external USB hard drive does not cause this error.

Checking back to around the 11/18/2012 I see nothing that I have changed/installed that might indicate something that has caused this. No other Windows 7 failures or issues.

Booting a second hard drive with windows 7 on the same system (I have this second installation for testing faults etc), the issue does NOT occur.

From checking forums and searching I have found a few others with this issue and a few articles on its cause

WUDFRd failed to load for the device

Event ID 219 is logged after you install Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 R2

I was just curious as to why it would suddenly start occurring after a particular date when as far as I can tell I have not made any changes to anything around this date.

Also I wondered if there was a fix to stop this, other than removing a memory stick before boot up!

Any thoughts?

Answer:The driver \Driver\WUDFRd failed to load for the device... error

I just started getting this exact same error message logged in Event Viewer when I plug a USB stick into a USB port. It happens with two different sticks from two different manufactures, but it does not happen every time I plug them in. It seems that it may mostly happen the first time I plug a stick in after I have booted up my PC.

Have you been able to find a solution to get these error codes to stop logging?

Now I pretty much have that down I just have one simple question. When deleting the upper and lower filters...

While in the registry I have found the upper filters on the right hand side. The only problem there is - No lower filters.

Could this be a problem?

Also , do the upper/lower filters need to be removed from the Control set 001 and Control set 002 . Please get back to me ASAP.

At Windows 10 startup this Warning appears in my Event Log as Event ID: 219.

The driver \Driver\WudfRd failed to load for the device SWD\WPDBUSENUM\{a1c931b2-3b00-11e5-9c14-806e6f6e6963}#0000000008100000.

I know why this happens. The device in the message is an internal SATA AHCI hard drive. All AHCI drives, even internal ones, are considered removal or hot swapable. It even causes the safely remove icon to appear sort of like it was a USB drive. It happened on Windows 8.x. Don't remember if it happened on Windows 7. I can't make any changes in my BIOS to make it not hot swapable as there is no option for this drive.

The fix to get rid of the message in W8 was to modify the Service 'Windows Driver Foundation - User-mode Driver Framework' Changing the Startup type from Manual to Automatic fixed the problem. However, on Windows 10 this method does not work.

I can't disable the Service as it's needed for other devices. Just wondering if anyone found a nice clean way to get rid of the warning message like in W8?

This problem started when my Microsoft wireless mouse driver was updated to version 1.0.102.0 (dated 3/16/2016).
This driver update also appears to be responsible for a few other device errors as well:

I believe this new driver assumes you have a wireless keyboard (without checking) and just tries to load a driver for it.

My temporary fix is/was to rollback the driver to the previous Microsoft version 10.0.10586.0 (dated 6/21/2006):

I have what appears to be a common problem with Win 7, as I've seen numerous users ask this question here & on other forums, but so far, none of the suggested fixes that I've found have worked for me.

I'm trying to install the full retail version of Win 7 Home Premium on a new SATA hard drive in a new 64-bit PC. I'm doing this because the drive that came with the PC had Win 7 Pro on it, but it was a trial version and I don't have a key or disc for it. However, I have a new copy of Win 7 Home Premium, and since I can't downgrade without hacking the registry (which didn't work either, btw), I decided to get a new HD & start over with Win 7 HP.

However, when I try to start the installation from the disc, after I click "Install Now", I get the error message "A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing". I'm stuck there.

The Win 7 disc allows you to remove the installation disc at that point & put whatever CD/DVD you want in the drive to try and find the drivers you need, so I tried the disc that came with the motherboard, which is a FoxComm. I'm able to get into the motherboard's installation disc & select "x64" under "driver" & also under "floppy". When I select those files, I get a quick green moving horizontal band, like it's downloaded the driver. If I select any other folder or drive, I get the error message "No device drivers were found" otherwise, so I believe I'm on the right track.

I got win7 rtm from MSDNAA and I'm having a very bizarre issue trying to install it. When it gets to the part when it shows the hard disks it says "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing" and prompts me to insert a disk or usb drive. I understand that this means it needs sata/raid drivers. But here's the weird part: I definitely shouldn't need to load drivers. Win 7 RC sees the disks just fine. Win XP and 2000 see them fine. It's just win7 rtm that doesn't.

I've tried on two different systems: one is an Geforce 6150se/Nforce 430 and one is an old i830/ich2 pentium 3 system. They have both run the win7 rc just fine. Why is this happening? Could my .iso be incomplete or corrupted? I would assume that the MSDN downloader does a checksum, but maybe not? My md5sum for the 32-bit rtm iso is 2316da980f95120702a7c3568a4bf9d9. Does anyone have one to compare? Or does anyone have any ideas why my rtm disc can't see any hard disks, even plain old IDE disks on old machines?

EDIT: ok, it only affects my 32-bit image. My 64-bit image works fine. Normally I wouldn't care since 64-bit is generally the way go to, but I was hoping to install this on an old XP rig which is 32-bit only. I guess I'll re-download the image and see what happens.
 

Answer:win7 rtm: "a required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing"

I had this problem once before, and replacing my ancient IDE burner with a $25 SATA model did the trick. Oddly enough, booting the CD from an external USB burner worked, too.

What I'm trying to do:
Ultimately, I want to have a clean install (wipe everything) of Windows 10 on my computer.

What my computer state was before the trouble:
Windows 7 Home Premium and Linux dual boot. Everything worked great and dandy (except intermittent issues with DVD drive not reading disks). All my files were saved to external hard drive. Ready to be wiped and have just one instance of Windows 10 installed (No dual boot)

What I did to break it:
I deleted my Linux partition using the instructions found here.
I also had 3 other partitions, my primary one which has Windows 7 on it, and two others that care pre-installed on the machine when I purchased it brand new. I can't recall their labels but I think one had "data" in the name with some numbers, and the other was "restore". I might be totally wrong about that though.

I decided, "What the heck, I've never needed these before" and so I deleted both of those as well. I'm guessing this was a poor decision but what do I know. The computer ran fine while it was still on but when I rebooted (to see if my linux partition was gone) that's where it all went wrong.

What's wrong and how I've tried to fix it:
When I start it up, I get a black screen with the grub rescue terminal and this text: "error: no such partition grub rescue>". Don't know much about grub (anything at all actually) but after some googling I tried to create a Windows Repair Disk and run it. Burned the disk follo... Read more

Answer:"A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing" and other errors

Solved it! And then went and cried in a corner because it was so simple.

Something I had failed to realize in the past was that of the 4 USB ports on my laptop, two of them are USB 3.0 ports. During my efforts, I had tried the thumb drives on (by sheer chance) both of the 3.0 ports rather than the 2.0 ones. My laptop (and most other modern computers I believe) require extra drivers to be downloaded before being able to use the 3.0 ports that aren't on the computer's firmware. That was the drivers it was complaining about not having.

So, for other troubled souls having the same issue in the future; verify that the port you are trying to load the USB on is a 2.0 port rather than a 3.0 port. The difference is pretty easy to spot when you're looking for it. USB 3.0 ports have an "SS" (for Super Speed) next to the US symbol, whereas USB 2.0 ports do not. See below image for a visual.

My computer was running the other day when the surge protector it is connected to tripped. When I reset the surge protector and turned the computer on, it hung for about 15 minutes on the Vista loading screen before restarting.
First I checked to make sure that all of my hardware was still working. I opened the case and there were no bulging or leaky capacitors, so I thought that was a good sign. I then checked BIOS and all of my hardware was still recognized and functional (hard drives whir when accessed, DVD drive opens/closes and tries to read discs).
Next I tried booting into safe mode. The booting process always gets hung up on "crcdisk.sys" and I have to turn the computer off. I tried Googling for various fixes but most of them involved turning off SATA support, which is no good since my DVD drive and hard drives are all use the SATA interface.
After that I got out my Windows Vista Ultimate 64-bit installation disc to try to create a partition on another HDD so I could at least recover my data before reformatting. None of my HDDs are recognized when I try to perform a repair operation (I've tried supplying it with about ten different HDD and chipset drivers via USB drive to no avail), and when I try to do a clean install I get the message "Required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing".

Answer:V64 NIGHTMARE:"Required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing", crcdisk.sys hangup...

Hi, do not do anything else to your system. It may already be too late (reinstall time). It appears the power outage impacted on one of your devices and now you have a corrupt crcdisk.sys file (actually it's a driver) now it controls filters and since your CD drive is effected most likely upper and lower filters.. problem is you introduced no third party programs to cause this (usual cause) so my first advice is to save your data slave your HDD to another computer and back up the data unless you already have a backup regime?

Ok this is new territory however I am confident. Boot with the Vista DVD go past the language setup and startup repair (I would try this just in case) now if it fails (i suspect it will) go on to "Repair your computer" select "command prompt" at the prompt type :-


Code:
devmgmt.msc press enter
Now in device manager go to the main menu and select "view" then "show hidden devices" scroll down to "Non plug and Play Drivers" expand and go to "crcdisk filter driver" right click and select "uninstall" Restart the computer windows will recreate a fresh copy and hopefully all will be well.. Remember this is an original fix (I just came up with it tested and it works)) so do BACK up first even a system restore from the advanced "repair your computer" option is worth a try.

Answer:"A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing"

Could be a setting in your BIOS which is preventing the CD/DVD drive being detected properly. I'm not 100% sure the option might be, but it's to do with the hard-disk detection settings. Set it as legacy, or compatibility mode instead of enhanced. Not sure if it will work but its worth a shot. You could also try defaulting your BIOS settings but make a note of the configuration before you change any settings.

I am even more flummoxed because I have already updated an exactly similar laptop (only the serial number is different) with a different Windows 7 edition - also volume licensing but from a reseller rather than direct from Microsoft VLC (which is now available to our church after registration for the Microsoft Charity Software scheme).

The existing DVD driver is Microsoft 21/06/2006 V 6.0.6002.18005

I would be grateful for some advice please.

Answer:Can't install W7 - Required CD/DVD Device driver missing!

Problem solved!
When I downloaded the W7 ISO from VLSC I had not used the download manager. I decided to download the file again but, this time, with the download manager. This second try completed but the download manager told me that the file was corrupted. I tried again and this time it seemed OK. I then compared the checksums of both the original file and the latest. When I saw thst they differed I msde a new DVD which has installed perfectly.
The moral - ALWAYS USE THE MICROSOFT DOWNLOAD MANAGER!

Hi all,I have a HP Pavilion dv3-4031TX notebook and I want to do a clean install to upgrade to 64-bit OS.I made a bootable USB drive by Microsoft's USB/DVD Download tool with the official ISO from digitalriver's server.I successfully booted with my USB drive and got into the installation page and followed the prompts.Moments after pressing "Install Now", a message saying "A required CD/DVD device driver is missing." poped up and the installer did not proceed.  It was prompting me to load a driver.I've already tried methods found in other threads such as unplugging the USB drive and pluggin it into a different USB port, disabling Device Driver Signature Enforcement upon startup etc.  This problem still persists.There is a method of changing the SATA controller mode in BIOS to IDE or AHCI instead of RAID, but it's not found in BIOS. My BIOS version is F.27What else could I do?Thanks in advance.Some information regarding the source of my ISO image:http://msft.digitalrivercontent.net/win/X17-58997.isoThis is the ISO image I use to make my bootable USB drive.  Google Chrome said the file size was 3.1GB while downloading.  It turned out to be 2.0GB.  I then used UltraISO to extract it and re-make a standard (uncompressed) ISO image.  Its size 'returned' to 3.1GB.  The new image was used to make the bootable USB drive.I also used the ei.cfg removal utility to make my ISO image universal.

most Consumer notebooks are AHCI mode only, there is no option to disable the SATA mode and make it work as IDE mode...since you are trying retail version of OS, you can download the SATA driver from hp.com, extract the files and copy them to USB. that can help you.if you want Factory installed Image, this link can help you get new media and install afresh...http://support.hp.com/us-en/document/bph07143 hope it helps, Good luck.

I'm trying to install windows 7 on my freshly built pc by using a usb device (no cd drive as of yet). I followed this guide to do this: http://www.intowindows.com/how-to-install-windows-7vista-from-usb-drive-detailed-100-working-guide/.

Whenever I try and boot the device on my new computer I get the "cd/dvd device driver missing..." error and a box for me to select drivers. I have tried changing the boot order in the BIOS but to no avail and I wanted to change my sata ahci mode but I couldn't find this option (american microtrends v1.6 bios).

I'd really appreciate it if somebody could help me solve this issue.
 

Answer:A required CD/DVD device driver is missing, usb installation

As CD/DVD drives are relatively inexpensive and an essential component of a PC these days, you could save a lot of head-scratching and hassle by installing one before trying to install Windows. Since it's a freshly built PC I'm surprised you didn't include one as part of the build.

I got an SL500 2746-73U with anHDMI port, and am having difficulty figuring out the two device driversthat are missing from device manager. I'm beginning to wonderif the HDMI port requires its own device driver, just as the olderCOM and LPT ports require them. If an HDMI port device driverexists, I'm having a difficult time locating it. Last question: Doesthe DB-15 VGA port on the back require its own device driver, or isthis taken care of by the video card's device driver?Respectfully,Jeff in Golden, CO

Answer:separate device driver required for HDMI port??

well, it's right that there are two devices shown in the device manager. one is the "Intel High Definition Audio HDMI" and the other is the "Mobile Intel 4 series Express Chipset Family" which is your graphics card. Normally when you install the intel display driver from the Thinkpad SL series support page, it installs the HDMI port as well.  maybe you should try it again. first deinstall your graphics card driver, then restart and install it again.here is the download link: http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/document.do?lndocid=MIGR-69981 OR   the recently updated one from the intel support site: http://downloadcenter.intel.com/Product_Filter.aspx?ProductID=2991&lang=eng VGA port requires the graphics card driver.

Wondering if anyone has ever run into an issue like this?
 
First, I am aware of all the bizarre issues with the HP DV computer line as related to the CPU/Video, overheat issues (etc).  Although, I am not willing to resign myself to that being the case/cause for this issue.
 
Here is the problem.  I cannot install windows from an the optical drive that is installed in the system.  I get the error during startup that "a required cd/dvd device driver is missing" and a box to select drivers.
 
Here is what I have tried based on what I have found in my Google Searches:
1. Windows 7 disc (not SP1) burnt ISO that I have created.
2. Windows 7 SP1 purchased optical media.
3. Windows 8.1 burnt ISO that I created.
All with the same issue.
 
Latest BIOS is installed in the system.
 
The BIOS on the unit does not allow me to select a SATA Type (i.e. legacy, AHCI, RAID, etc.) so I cannot change that.
 
Here is where it gets interesting.... I can boot and run everything else from this drive (Ultimate Boot CD, Virus Scanning CDs, Installed Ubuntu and Mint from the same drive without issue, etc.).
 
One last twist...  I can install Windows from a USB stick.  When this is done the optical drive is detected, but will not ready any discs in Windows (but again, still works flawlessly from a boot with other products).
 
Any help or other ideas appreciated....
 
Thanks.

Answer:Issue With HP Pavilion DV6701us - a required cd/dvd device driver is missing

Hello, and welcome to Bleeping Computer.
Check out this blog. I believe your problem is because the Windows install DVD does not have the latest mass storage drivers. That's why the linux CD's worked. But, maybe this will not work as you said you can load windows from a USB and it installs.
 
Windows 7 DVD Disc installer is corrupted
Windows 7 Downloaded ISO files is corrupted 
Latest Intel Chipset that Windows 7 that have no support yet
When the board has no UEFI setting in the BIOS Settings
Outdated Windows 7 Software Installer is too old for the new computer

I can't seem to get Windows 7 SP1 to load a driver for an HP printer that is on my home network. My laptop sees it but won't let me make it the default printer or load a driver so that I can link to it wirelessly. I restored my laptop back to windows 7
because Windows 10 was moving too slow. I only have 4gigs of memory, and windows 10 probably runs better with 8gigs of memory.

I'm working with a Dell Dimension C521 PC. It came with a PCI-Express video card which apparently has failed, yet the motherboard itself has on-board video. The system will boot using this video output (as opposed to the card which produced nothing) but when it finally gets to windows the auto-detect driver routine kicks in and begins to detect the video card, prompting the user to "Continue Anyway" to finish installing unsigned drivers. Unfortunately this event takes place in front of the installation of the USB keyboard and mouse (times like these I wish it had PS/2 ). Anyway, whether I boot up into Safe Mode or normal a prompt comes up about installing drivers for the on-board chipset. I can't interact with it because the driver install routine for the keyboard/mouse becomes interrupted.
 

Answer:Dell Dimension C521; USB key/mouse driver load interrupted by video card driver load

Bump. I've been thinking... the only way I think this can be fixed is if I boot from a Linux CD or something similar and delete a particular set of drivers for this video card. It can't prompt you to install any drivers if they don't exist, right? But I don't know where to go to delete such files and prevent them from automatically trying to install themselves. Any ideas?

I recently had malware installed on my computer called Antispycheck and I just got it removed but now my disk drives are missing from "My Computer." When I go to "Device Manager" all three drives show up, but they have the exclamation sign next to them, when I right click on it and go to properties, it says "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupt or missing. (Code 39)." I uninstalled the drivers and restarted Windows, Windows found them and installed them, however, they still did not show up in "My Computer" and still had the same error message under "Device Manager." Any help with this problem will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
