  • CD or DVD drive is missing or is not recognized by Windows

    Original title: another question about the DVD drive is not detected in Windows 7

    I have the same problem that many others have described here on the DVDR drive not detected after installing Windows 7. I still have not solved this issue. But I have another similar problem. The system will not recognize an external USB DVDR drive connected to a USB port. In essence, I have no access to the internal drive (in a Dell Inspiron 1545) or the external hard drive. Without access to a DVD player I can't even uninstall Windows 7, and I can not install or save anything else without a drive. I'm at my wits end. If anyone can help I will shower you with praise.

    Hi Therevmrbill,

    Scenario 1:

    Your CD or DVD drive is missing or is not recognized by Windows or other programs.
    Scenario 2:

    1 try to connect the DVD USB drive on another computer and check if the problem persists.
    2. try to connect other USB devices to the computer and check if it is detected.

    Try to run the troubleshooter and see if the problem is resolved.

    Thank you, and in what concerns:

  • PRS-600 USB device not recognized

    I am unable to get ereader PRS-600 to be recognized by the computer (Win7).
    I tried to update the software (even if I think it's in)
    (date) but the window 'connect a PRS-600 to update' does not progress and the update button is dimmed.
    I deleted the "unknown device" in the drivers, but when I reconnect the USB cable and the ereader, I always get the display of device not recognized and the message "USB device not recognized".

    I seem to have solved the problem. I contacted Sony through esupport and a chat with a tech.

    Make sure that the battery has some charge inside. Completely charge if you can.
    Stop eReader (fully)
    Remove the SD card
    Press the button Reset (at the bottom of the ereader)
    Turn it on
    While the display shows "Open book", at the same time press the button to "turn the page" (back) and the Volume button until the "Reset All" + screen
    Enter 'Yes' to reset the ereader. You may need to configure the screen (X button with the tip to draw at various points)
    If you charge the battery, you may need to contact the support chat for sorting.

    Good luck!

  • Installation of XP Prof on Tecra A9 PTS52E - SATA HDD is not recognized

    Hi all

    I have a "nine" Tecra A9 (PTS52E) with Vista Business installed. However, I need XP Prof and a CD of XP - SP2 slipstreamed. The SATA drive is not recognized XP installation, so I need a driver of "F6."

    There are a lot of howtos on this for the 945 chipset, but I couldn't solve this problem on my A9 (Mobile 965 Express Chipset). I don't want to buy a USB floppy for one-time-installation drive. So I have to build the driver (iastor.sys and more) in the XP installation disc.

    A few problems: there seems to be no easy way to do this, because intel only provides files *.inf for the ICH8R (RAID =) controller, which does not exist in the A9. So I have to change the *.inf files, correct?

    Another thing: I saw in an another post here the discussion on switching to AHCI in the BIOS in compatibility mode. I can't find a way to change this setting.

    Aargh, I need this laptop for my work on an A8 (which is also mine), I installed XP without any problem.

    Can anyone help?

    Thank you

  • His number disappointed + B500 USB device not recognized at startup


    We have 2 B500

    whenever I'm starting, after loading windows they give me an error "USB device not recognized" I don't know what to do any help will be greatly appreciated as it is strange that both machines are giving the same error.

    also on one of the machines the sound does not work, I tried to get out of trouble, the diagnostic says the speakers are working properly, but not her out at all.

    I'm kind of disappointed by these questions, we always buy at Dell, but we thought we would give Lenovo a chance, the machines were barely a few months, when the problem started.

    advice please?

    That error usually comes up when a non bootable USB device is connected. Check the Bios and make sure that the CD drive and HARD drive are loading first. That should solve your problem. If this is not the case, make sure that you don't have any USB stick or disk external HARD connected until the PC load.

  • Satellite L30: Usb device not recognized

    I have a problem with my laptop L30.
    When I connect my phone or a flash drive or external hard drive, it is said: Usb device not recognized one of the usb devices malfunctioned.
    Tried to reinstall windows did not help...

    is there a solution?


    Hmm. First of all, you should unplug all external USB devices.
    Then go to Device Manager and remove it all concentrators root USB and USB host controllers.
    Reboot the laptop.

    After this procedure, the operating system should recognize and should install new ports.
    Now you can connect to a plug - and play instruments. These devices should be recognized automatically. But some external USB devices need additional drivers.
    Usually these drivers are provided with the USB device.

    I would recommend this review if necessary!

    If I understand correctly your computer does not detect the printer. You can try the following steps and check the results.

    1) inspect the cable USB and connection:- icon on the USB () facing up when the cable is connected to the product correctly. Check the back of your product and the back of your computer to make sure that the USB cable connects correctly and safely.
