Have you checked the computer manufacturer's website for drivers?

You can also try this:

Always backup your registry before editing and use care to find exact key!
Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click)

Find "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" (and "UpperFilters.bak" "LowerFilters.bak", if they exist) value under the following key in the registry, and delete it:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Quit Registry Editor.

Reboot.

NOTE: You might need to reinstall any CD recording apps you have, if they start to not work completely, after doing this.

No video output from atapi dvd rw after OS reinstall, cd rw ok


>> VGA controller (vga compatible) error in the device manager

Windows has not found a "good" device-driver for the "integrated" video-controller on your motherboard; it is using the "generic" adapter.

So, trying to download the "SIS Mirage Graphics" software is an attempt by Windows to download a "specific" device-driver that matches your video-adapter hardware.

You might try installing an add-in video-card, to see if Windows will install the correct device-driver, and still boot-up correctly.

Otherwise, take the computer to a qualified technician, for trouble-shooting about your boot-up problem.

The driver is not detected by laptop


Is your dvd drive capable of doing light scribe?: If not, then the driver won't make it work. It takes a special drive to use lightscribe, and it should be part of your CD/DVD burner software. I highly recommend Nero software as the best, more reliable and easiest to use. Also, it the brand that usually comes with New CD and DVD drives.

Toshiba Satellite L3550-S7812 - Following error occurs when the DVD RW is attempting to load: "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing....


Ok! I'm not an expert, but I took advantage of my Toshiba warranty and got some tech support. Fortunately, I remember what they told me to do and I wish to help. :D I have Windows Vista, so if something isn't quite the same, ask and I can probably clarify it for XP.

We will be editing the registry, so please back up your computer/set a system restore point.

First, make sure all programs and windows are closed, then open the start menu and type into the "command" into the start search field (for xp users, go to run, then type in "cmd") and press enter. This will open up the command prompt window. It's a black window.

Now, in the black box, type in "regedit" and press enter. This will open up the registry editor. We will be deleting two values from the registry in order to make the computer properly detect the DVD drive.

Once you have the registry editor open, you will have to open a series of folders to access the particular registry values that need to be deleted. It will be displayed like this:

Folder>Sub Folder>Sub Sub Folder

Please open the following folders in the registry editor in the following order:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SYSTEM > CurrentControlSet > Control > Class

From here, you need to select the folder which is ninth from the top in the Class folder. The name of this folder is {4D36E966-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318

In this folder with an extraordinarily long name of jibberish, you will find two files entitled "LowerFilters" and "UpperFilters," respectively. Click on LowerFilters to select it then either right click and select the delete option or simply press the delete key on your keyboard, then confirm that you would like to delete it. Click UpperFilters to select it then repeat the process followed for LowerFilters.

Lastly, close all windows and restart your computer.

Your DVD-RW drive should work now. To test it, put in any CD/DVD/whatever.

I hope this helps and if it doesn't, then I apologize. I wish I could help more, but I'm just repeating the process Toshiba tech support went over with me.

Have a good one. :)

Jerky playback on dvd rw drive, audio & video Drive is a lite on shw-160h6s


DVD playback for some DVDs may be okay, but most will become jerky(drop frames) especially when the scene becomes "busy" e.g. whenthere's more action, pan-shots etc. If Task Manager is running, itshows that processor resources associated with the DVD player softwarerise (e.g. to >80%) during these "busy" times when frames aredropped. This can happen even with quite new, well specified PCs (e.g.2GHz Pentium 4, 256MB memory...). Common causeFrequently newer versions of Windows (WinXP,Win2000, etc) cause the internal DVD drive interface to revert to "PIOMode" (Programmed Input/Output - an old, slow, processor-intensive datatransfer protocol) rather than "DMA Mode" (Direct Memory Access -transfers data directly from drive to memory without much processorintervention). This completely throttles data transfer from the DVDdrive and causes dropped frames. A "bug" in Windows prevents thetransfer mode being set back to DMA either automatically (e.g. onreboot), or by even vaguely user-friendly intervention!This problem has been known about for over 2 years!
There is a hard-to-find Microsoft Knowledgebase article on it.
Open up Device Manager from the Windows Control Panel: (WinXP) -Start|Control Panel|Performance and Maintenance|See basic informationabout your computer, then select the Hardware tab, then press theDevice Manager button. Expand the "IDE ATA/ATAPI" entry. At this pointit helps to know whether your DVD drive is on the Primary or SecondaryIDE channel (typically you might find that your hard disk(s) are on thePrimary channel while your DVD and CD-ROM drives are on the Secondary).You can check by following the cables from the motherboard. Assumingfor now that the DVD is on the Secondary channel... double-click thatentry (or right-click and go to Properties). In the resulting dialogbox, click the Advanced Settings tab:
idechpropok.gif
[ On my computer, Device0 (top) is the DVD and Device1 (bottom) is the CD-RW ]
If instead any of those boxes say "PIO mode" and you have a reasonably-modern PC then you've probably got problems!
Unfortunately owing to this Windows "bug", just setting thetransfer mode to "DMA if available" won't work, and won't "stick" onreboot.
SolutionMicrosoft's official solution can be found in their Knowledgebase article Q817472.In my case (and most I've read on the Web), the easiest solution is to"Uninstall" the affected IDE channel from the Device Manager window,then reboot, allowing Windows to re-install the drivers and sorteverything out from scratch!ideuninst.gif

I have a 5 month old acer laptop that came with a dvd rw doudle layer disc burner.... this is what it says when i find discription in the computer.... 6.0.6000.16386 version driver# signed by micro...


You have to manually download the latest drivers from the Manufacturer and then point Vista where it is when the New Hardware wizard tries to install it.

Or your best bet is to go to Acer's support site and download the Driver for your DVD drive.
