Windows 7 install stops and reports that a required driver for the CD/DVD drive device is missing.


you need to load the device driver prior to starting the install as it looks as if the windows installation drivers do not support your DVD drive. Get the driver on a USB stick and load it at the first of the install.

I have a Systemax Venture Microsoft Windows XP Pro Version 2002 Service Pack 3. The system will not longer play dvd's or cd's and cannot burn cd's as well. I'm not sure if something has...


Well the fact that when you put in a cd it does not see it indicates that either the CD Drive is not being detected or the drive has gone faulty and needs replacing.
First Look in the bios of the computer to see if it is seen the drives section. If it is there then look in windows under control panel , system, device manager. Now look under DVD/CD Roms drives (this may differ slightly in XP) to see if in there with no error against it. If not and not in the bios either then the drive has failed. If however it shows in DVD/CD Roms with no error then try a different make of cd/DVD. If this works then the Bios of the drive will need updating. This info is on the manufacturers website. Good luck.
