Where i find Sony C R X 140 E driver for x p ??? In go ogle i didn't find ... only virus ... please help me !!!


Hello friend
You don't need Sony drivers if you are using Windows !!!!!
Go here to Sony for your your cd player. http://sony.storagesupport.com/product/180
Click on the 'Dos Drivers' and read the words from there ....'NOTE: Windows operating systems have built in drivers to support your Sony CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM drive as a CD-ROM reader. No additional drivers are normally required once Windows is installed and running. However, you will need additional software to make use of CD Writing and DVD Video playback if your drive supports these functions.'

I suggest you re-install Windows XP from installation disks. after backing up your personal files which you will lose.

You mentioned 'driver booster' Yes ONLY ONLY ONLY EVER download drivers from , the Manufacturers site . Sony in this case,

There are lots of rubbish sites offering drivers this and drivers that. THEY ARE ALL RUBBISH !!!!!!! DON'T EVER EVER USE THEM
I cannot stress it enough tell your friends, tell everybody.

As I say , connect up your cd player and then re-install windows xp or whatever Windows version you have. Windows will automatically install its OWN drivers for your player.

Better still friend... buy a more up-to -date dvd r/w combi.player They are really cheap these days.

4:scroll down and select install new hardware device
5:select install hardware that i manually select from a list

Where to find drivers for Tanberg SLR6


You have to be sure the computer has the correct software to recognise the hardware and can work with it. From Windows 7 and up, for all hardware that is certified with Microsoft, you can download the drivers from Microsoft. Lots of hardware is recognised when connected and will initiate a download from Microsoft. But not all hardware will do so and not all hardware is compatible (same as not certified by Microsoft from Windows 7 and up) with the new operating systems.

Most things that worked fine with Windows XP and or Vista, can fail with Windows 7 and 8, because the factory that made the hardware in the first place does not ask for certification with Microsoft for their old Hardware. They only spend time and money to get their new hardware certified on the new operating systems.

So most of the time the drivers that came with your tape drive, could be used with the operating systems of that time. Till Windows XP, you could install drivers yourself, even old and outdated drivers most of the time worked. In the newer OS'n you ran out of luck.

Hi everyone, I was installing windows xp sp3 on my compaq desktop computer through my hard drive because my computer doesn't recognise cd roms, So I can't install through cd drives. It installed to...


Hi
Have you tried to go into your cmos settings and enable the settings to detect your cd rom
You should be able to use a external cd rom connected through your USB port to load and re-install windows and your drivers if you have the motherboard cd.
The problem is your limited in your options to work from the hard drive but a disk also gives you the option to repair the filing system and replace missing files.


The problem with installing windows on one pc and it not working on another pc is the motherboards are not compatible, and the configuration has to be similar or the same so the hard drive can boot up and communicate between the hardware and software.


Your options are use a CD rom, change your MB or google your problem and hope someone else was able to resolve this issue.

Windows 7 will not recognise vdr-m70 dvd camcorder


Panasonic supplied software for the VDR-M70 for Windows 98 through XP on the CD. Due to changes in the OS over time, the installer can't run under Windows 7. Panasonic has not updated the drivers for Windows 7 and Microsoft indicates that it is not compatible with any version of Windows 7.

There are work-arounds depending on your version of Windows 7. If you have the 32-bit OS, try using the compatibility mode. To find out which version of Win7 that you have, click Start > Control Panel > System and Security > System. If the name of the OS ends with x64, then you have the 64-bit version of the software. Otherwise, you have the 32-bit version.

For the compatibility mode, right click on the installer on the CD (browse Computer). Choose Properties and then click on the Compatibility tab. Select Always Run this program as and an older version of Windows (XP). Apply and Save your changes. Then right click again on the installer and choose Run as Administrator.

This may not work (and won't work for the 64-bit Windows 7). If it doesn't work, you need a machine with an older version of Windows. This can be a second computer, a dual boot computer or a virtual computer (if your hardware supports virtual computing). For most options, you will need a licensed copy of the older version of Windows.

If you have Windows 7 Pro or Ultimate or upgrade to one of them, you can have a virtual version of XP for free. Download and install Virtual PC and XP mode from Microsoft in order. Then install the software for the camcorder in XP mode as if it were your only computer. (Of course this doesn't help if your hardware doesn't support the Virtual PC.) Other virtual computer programs are VMWare and Parallels.

Note: you can not directly share files or hardware between the Win7 and the virtual computer. You have to put files on an external drive (optical, flash drive or other external hardware) to share them.

I hope this helps.

Izaakzakei cant get my printer connected to my laptop i have downloaded the driver but its still not working


Hello,

You need to install the softeware first with the printer unplugged from the computer!

Insert your softeware disk and restart your computer, if computer doesn't detect new software when it is rebooting....than go into your control panel...click on install new software.

Once that is installed, you'll need to restart again with the printer hooked up this time.

Again, if computer doesn't detect new hardware, go into control panel, click on install new printer, you will have to select the make and model, or if you have the disk, select have disk, then next...you computer should install the hardware for you printer.

After installed, restart again...to see if if new software and hardware is detected and is being installed.

Go to your printers, from your control panel, and see if your printer is there, if not select, add new printer, it will take you through the process from there. Make sure you select this to be your default printer!

Happy printing!

Hello: I have installed UBUNTU 10.4 into my computer and it does not recognise my SONY CD ROM (CRX1611). Is there a driver for UBUNTU I can download please ? Thanks, James.


  • Assuming that /media/cdrom0/ is the location of CD/DVD-ROM
  • To mount CD/DVD-ROM:

    sudo mount /media/cdrom0/ -o unhide
  • To unmount CD/DVD-ROM:

    sudo umount /media/cdrom0/
    I wonder if maybe the DVD is there, but it hasn't been mounted so try this above...usually Ubuntu should pick up the DVD and assign a generic driver. If it isn't there and you cannot mount it, then maybe it's faulty? You need to test it, on another PC.Hopefully this will help.

Installed XP SP3 to my Dell 6000 and now NEC 6500a can't be found. Device manager says that the drivers are loaded by cannot find the hardward Code 41


Hi,
see if its recognised in the Device Manager. Start/My computer/Control Panel/System/Device manager.
if so remove or uninstall the Drive.
Physically remove/eject the drive from the Computer. reboot then shutdown. re-insert the Drive. boot computer and see if it,s detected by the system or ( found new hardware Wizard )
re-install any drivers as requested. Installing SP3 shouldn,t do this. unless the drive was actually Virused Or failing already.
