Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I can't get Vista 64 bit ultimate to recognize either my CD or DVD drive. The CD is a CRX140E and the DVD is a DRU-800A. They are on an IDE controller. Have tried separately and together, but the drive that's loaded says its ATA and claims the registry is corrupt or installed wrong - ideas?

My guess is that the drivers you trying to install isent for Vista 64, try to find drivers supported by Vista 64.

Good luck

ASUS M51SN Matshita BD UJ-120 burner does not work - Windows 7


You need to install windows 7 (32 bit) not 64. To change to 64 you have to make internal changes and updates to your notebook. Your notebook is set up for 32 bit systems.

Will this drive work on a vista 64 bit system?


Try putting the same disks into some other CD/DVD reader, to confirm that the disks are "good".

It definitely should work in XP, XP/64, Vista, Vista/64,
but you could have the misfortune to have purchased a "lemon", i.e., a factory-defective unit.

Got another computer to which you can temporarily connect the new drive, to confirm that the drive will work "somewhere" ?

If all else fails, take it back to the retailer, and get them to demonstrate that it works in one of their computers, using your disks. If it does not, then they should replace it with one that CAN read your disks.

Installing xp operating system


If it's not detecting the hard drive a 64 bit CD isn't going to help! You need to remove and reseat the hard drive and if it still won't recognize the drive, seriously consider the possibility that your drive has failed. Reasonably priced replacements are readily available.

VISTA 64-BIT and Sony DRU-810a DVD RW


An exclamation point means that there is a problem with the device. Could be as simple as a corrupted driver. Try unistalling the drive from Control Panel>Add/Remove Harware. Reboot; then reinstall drive. Hope this helps.
