Need driver for windows 7.0 Win7/Vista/XP Driver Max is a new tool that allows you to download the latest driver updates for your computer. No more searching for rare drivers on discs or on the web or inserting one installation CD after the other. Just create a free account, log in, and start downloading the updates that you need.
You can also export all your current drivers (or just the ones that work ok) to a folder or a compressed file. After reinstalling Windows you will have everything in one place!
Most of the situations when Windows is running slower are caused by faulty driver installations. Windows stores all versions of older drivers just in case you want to go back; sometimes it messes up older versions with more recent ones. The Export Wizard will only export the drivers you select by copying the needed files to a folder or a compressed ZIP file.
After reinstalling Windows all drivers will be back in place in less than 5 minutes - sparing you of searching, inserting disc after disk and losing precious time. The Import Drivers wizard allows you to install all the drivers that you exported earlier. The entire operation might take up to 5-10 minutes.
Just one single computer restart will be required after all drivers are reinstalled!
DriverMax is able to display a complete report of all drivers (versions, release dates) installed on your system. This feature can also be very useful when you want to analyze the differences between the drivers installed on different machines. Hope this helps

MY DVD-RAM is not appearing in MY COMPUTER but seems okay though. I can't access, it doesn't appear but it boots from start up like putting booting cd to it seems okay. I do not know exactly what...

Okay you tried using 'regedit.exe. Now try this;

Left-click on Start, then right-click on My Computer. (Windows logo button, Computer, for Vista and Win7)

Left-click on Properties at the bottom of the fly-out menu.
Left-click on the Hardware tab.
Left-click on Device Manager.

When Device Manager loads, left-click on DVD/CD-ROM drives.
Right-click on Mashita DVD-ROM U870BJ

(Yes I know you have been to Device Manager. Just wanted to make sure all i's are dotted, and t's are crossed)

Left-click on Properties.
Now left-click on the Driver tab.
Left-click on Uninstall.

A Microsoft 'squawk box' will come up.
"Warning you are about to uninstall this device.
It's okay. Left-click on OK.

Close ALL windows, go back to your desktop screen.
Shut the computer down normally. (NOT restart)

Wait 1 minute, turn the computer on.
When Windows has fully loaded you should get a pop-up out of the system tray,
"Found new hardware".

And perhaps another pop-up, "Found Mashita DVD-ROM device"

Post back your findings in a Comment.

DVD Drive ...missing?

Do you still need help with this?

When you bootup and access the setup screens by pressing F10 there is a property value for your multi purpose bay. It can be released at any time or only when the laptop is off. Is this set to anytime or was it set to only when off when you ejected the drive?

In any case you would need to reinstall the driver from HP and maybe then the drive bay could work. Otherwise, if its set to off and the Chaplin may have been doing this without using the Icon in the system tray to Safely Eject, etc. If done correctly youu usually okay. But, lets assume he hasn't. The drive bay chip may be damaged but I doubt it. To fix this you need to update and use the automatic software updater program. This should resolve issues, then it may not but it most likely will take care of a lot of problems including this. Click on the link below..

Here's the new software updater download location.

Should this is not work, Press F8 on startup and you'll see boot from D: the recovery partition. Do that. If its not on the first F8 screen escape and press F8 again immediately. You may see Repair my installation or words to that effect instead of Safe Mode.

Good Luck,

Sony DVD RW AW-G170A will not install

Code 39 loadTOCNode(2, 'moreinformation'); Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)


Reasons for this error include a driver that is not present; a binary file that is corrupted; a file I/O problem, or a driver that references an entry point in another binary file that could not be loaded.

Uninstall the driver, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall or upgrade the driver.

On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard.

Is that the actual model number?

Nowhere does that item exist on SONY's support page.

If so, it may no loger be supported....

Keep me posted.

Dvd drive wont read dvd's

You state a problem here that is going to need a lot more info before a suggested fix could be provided. is this a new drive you added to your computer or a "factory installed" drive? If a new drive, did it come with "driver files" to be installed into Windows and did you install them? During installation, what questions were you asked and how did you answer them? By the way, my DVD drive shows up as a "CD Drive" in My Computer too, but it still reads & writes DVDs. Try right clicking on the drive in My Computer, click on "Properties" and then click on the "Hardware" tab. When the hardware screen opens, try clicking on "Troubleshoot" and follow the directions. This might work if you are in Windows XP.
