Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

While installing a fresh copy of WIN 7 the install requires a driver for the Samsung DvD burner. However I cannot fond a copy of the .inf files which are required. All I can find are small utilities which offer to fix all my driver problems. But since I am in the begining of installing the OS I cannot run the utility. Where can I find a copy of the raw driver files?

Finish the Windows 7 install, but skip the DVD burner install. After a reboot of Windows, it will detect the DVD burner hardware and ask for the driver. At this point, let Windows look on the Internet for the driver.

I doubt that you'll be able to getmuch support for a product that hasn't been released to the puiblic yet.

The edition you have will be a Release Candidate which was released to developers to find any bugs.The RTM has only just been released to manufatures so that they can develop the drivers for when it goes on general release.

Basically you're jumping the gun a bit.

SOURCE: My drive didn't come with drivers, and my computer

You may check whether the DVD is set to SATA or IDE in BIOS.
I suggest you to update the latest SATA drivers for your DVD writer. Follow these steps:
1. Go to start and type in Device Manager in the Start Search box, and then press ENTER.
2. Click Continue. If you are prompted for an administrator password or for a confirmation, type the password, or click Continue.
3. In the list of device types, click the kind of device, and then locate the specific device that is not functioning.
4. Right-click the device, and then click Properties.
5. Click the Driver tab.
6. Click on update driver, click OK.

If Windows is unable to find an update for the driver, then download the latest drivers for Windows 7 from the manufacturer's website.
If you still face any issues with the DVD drive, then you will have to get in touch with the manufacturer for further assistance. Here's the link:

Hello there,

you are right, Win Xp is not Blu-Ray compatible unless you installed UDF reader. UDF reader is a driver which lets you explore Blu-ray and HD-DVD UDF v2.5 disc in Win XP's file explorer.

Click the Link to download UDF v2.5 driver

1. After downloading extract the file to any folder.

2. Right click on thdudf.inf and choose Install.

pcsyke_96.jpg
3. Once this is done, reboot your machine.

4. After reboot your system will be able to read the new UDF 2.5 file system recognition.

5. If you want your system to read video files, you have to download codecs.

Codec Link download.


Thank you for using FixYa.

Hopefully this information helps.

Need drivers for Minolta Dimage Scan Dual III to work with Windows 7 64-bits


I used this solution from KainAnderson
1) Install the Konica Minolta XP software in Win 7.
2) Plug in your DImage Scanner into a USB port and turn it on with the door closed. It may detect and install the original Konica Minolta Driver.
3) Create an empty folder on you harddrive (for instance go to my computer, double click on the c: drive, then right click and create a new folder named newminolta).
4) Open windows notepad and copy the following into it:

; scanners.inf -- Test Vista Minolta Film Drivers
;
;
; To remove this driver and install the original
; manufacturer's driver, go into Device Manager,
; open Imaging devices, then click on the scanner name
; with the right mouse button and choose Uninstall.

5. Now save you new notepad file in the directory you created as newminolta.inf NOT as newminolta.inf.txt or newminolta.txt (i.e. c:\newminolta\newminolta.inf)
6. Go to control panel (View Devices and Printers).
7. Right click on Minolta Scan Dual III and click on properties.8. Select Hardware tab, then select Properties
9. Select Driver tab, then select update driver
10. Select Browse my computer for driver software.
11. Browse to c:\newminolta\newminolta.inf (or wherever you stored file) and click Next
12. Click Next. After running driver file Win 7 should now say it updated driver.
13. Run Dimage software with door closed. Wait for it to initialize and green light stops blinking.
14 Open door and insert film holder and start scanning.
Hopefully I've copied and amended the solution correctly

My dvd writer and my cd drive will not find my pictures that i have saved onto disc since i changed to windows 7


It might be that you have to reinstall the DVD drivers again now that you have I'm assuming a clean install of Win 7 which would wipe all of that out, it's an easy fix if so, just reinstall all of the drivers for your programs if they are compatible with Win 7. If that does not work go to:
http://divx-for-windows.en.softonic.com/ and download the free DIV X program and it will play your DVDs and CD's in Windows 7

Sounds like you have done all you possibly can, it may well be that the drive has finally given up and a replacement is neccasary. You can try to repair the autorun .inf file, but i think a replacement. http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyID=C680A7B6-E8FA-45C4-A171-1B389CFACDAD&displaylang=en Sorry!
