Hey guys...newbie posting out of total desperation and needing help! I have posted in other forums with no luck...

I bought a Samsung SH-D162D DVD Drive in a USB enclosure to connect to my Toshiba laptop via USB.

I cannot get windows 7 to find it! When I plug in the USB cable the balloon comes up to say it has been installed (sometimes), I can see it on for about 1 or 2 minutes then it drops off. It isnt listed in my hardware or anything.

Its not found in Disk Management or My Devices so it isnt a case of changing the drive letter - i cant find the drive to change it.

I have also tried to find the upper and lower settings in regedit....couldnt find them so couldnt delete them as advised in other posts of this nature.

It is set to master, the IDE connector and power connectors are fine. Its gotta be a windows 7 problem cause it does show up very breifly. In the minute or 2 its there I cant do anything with just hangs although it will open and close. Ive googled it and cant find anything...mainly registry issues but they didnt help.

Ive also connected it up to another laptop with XP and had no problems so I know the DVD Rom works fine and all the cables are ok.

Ive tried in all 4 USB ports on my laptop and also turned off all energy settings...all with no luck. And I also have EVERY windows 7 update...

Heres exactly what happens from power off on the enclosure.

1 - I plug in the USB lead then turn on power to the enclosure.
2 - I quickly go to Start, and I can see the DVD Rom drive E next to my laptops dvd rom.
3 - The green bar at the top starts filling up from left to right and gets about half way then suddenly the DVD Rom icon disappears and so does the green bar.
4 - It then flashes up under the laptops DVD Rom icon with a Local Disk drive E but only for a split second.
5 - Sometimes a balloon comes up saying installing device, then device successfully installed...but not every time.

And thats it....Im at a total loss and cant work it out, so any help is really appreciated!

This is intended as a dual boot, but this darn thing jsut wont boot from the DVD to install...

I looked for another with the same problem, but it seems like no one has gone as far as I have.

I have burned 2 different .iso's from different DL sources(1 was microsoft), tried changing to a .img, unpacked the .iso and burned individual files.

Yes, my boot priority is set to DVD 1st.

I tried my XP install disk and it boots to it just fine.

System specs:
CPU= Q9450 @3.6ghz
Mobo=Asus p5q-pro
RAM=4gigs OCZ DDR2 1066
HDD= WD 640GB w/ new partition
GPU= ATI HD 4850
Lite On DVD drive w/ Verbatim DVDs

Let me know if I left anything else out...

Thanks in advance, I have a feeling I'm overlooking something obvious, but I can't seem to see it.

Hey guys

I know there are probably some other threads with this same problem i got but i was unable to find any useful answer in them so therefore i ask again.
I have been running Windows 7 for i think 1 week now and since yesterday i cant install ANYTHING on my computer, it dosent matter if i try to install it from a virtual drive (Daemon Tools) or from my regular DVD drive. I tried new drivers with no luck, and no the day the problem started i haven't installed anything new not even updated my windows or run an anti-virus scan. So i really cant explain why it just suddenly started.

Any and i mean any idea would be helpful, and reinstalling is only my last resort

Thanks for all the help!

Hey everybody,
I know this problem has been seen before, even before windows 7. Problem is I've been trying to install the 32bit version of 7 since the RC came out and the installation always hangs at "completing installation". The install boots a little slow, but it goes through everything. I'm doing a fresh install of the RC because I was using the 7 beta before (which gave me little to no problems when I installed it). I start the install on the whole HD (unallocated space). It goes through the copying windows files and expanding alright and installs features and updates. Then it reboots, and I see the 7 logo. Then it's on the completing install, changes resolution, and hangs. It'll either blue screen after a few hours and reboot to a black screen, or just hang at the install.

System specs:
Foxconn Motherboard P9657AB-8EKRS2H
Intel Pentium E2220 Allendale 2.4GHz 1MB L2 Cache LGA 775 65W Dual-Core Processor
PNY VCG98GTXPXPB GeForce 9800 GTX+ 512MB 256-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
2GB Crucial Ballistix DDR2 BL2KIT12864AA80A
WD Caviar Blue 500GB SATA
normal DVD drive
USB keyboard/mouse
LG LCD monitor

So I've tried a lot of different things but to no avail.

I've downloaded and redownloaded the 32bit on the microsoft technet site. Burned with a separate player once at default speed and once at x1. I believe the disk works fine.
I've tried install NVIDIA drivers through the notepad trick but that still doesn't help.
I've tried removing one of the RAM which doesn't do much either.
I've disabled some of the onset chip stuff in my BIOS which doesn't work either.
I've even reinstalled Vista and try to upgrade to the 7 RC while in vista, which doesn't work, also hangs at the final step.

I think it may be the LCD, but idk why. Thing is there's no onboard video on the motherboard so my monitor has to attach to the video card. I don't know why it changes resolution in the middle of the completing installation part either.

Thanks to all who read the long post. Any advice and tips are appreciated.


I am trying to install the Windows 7 RC 64-bit as a fresh install. I am coming from a Windows XP Home Edition. I backed up all my important data and restarted and booted to the Windows 7 RC DVD. I chose custom install and then formatted the partition (only took like 5 seconds. Strange) and continued with the install. It took about ~20 minutes and then restarts. The installation reads "Completing Installation" and then auto-restarts again. This time, I get the screen that says Windows was shut down incorrectly and it gives me the option to start in safe mode or normal. I start in normal (and tried safe mode) and then when Windows 7 loads up I get a message that says "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click OK to restart the computer, and then restart the installation." Anybody have success beating this problem?

PS. I ran the Windows 7 Advisor program and passed.

I've spent quite a few days trying to install Win 7 in a dual boot enviroment with an existing Vista operating system. Vista came pre-installed on a large SATA HD that I reconfigured into 2 partitions (Vista on the 1st). Unfortunately, the OEM cabled the drive to one of the middle sequenced of 6 SATA connectors on the motherboard. I added another SATA HD to one of the lower ordered motherboard connectors. Selecting the Vista drive to boot 1st in the BIOS works fine for Vista, but this kind of configuration doesn't work when adding Win7. Win7 will install a "boot" folder on the lowest ordered HD (say HDD 0). Win7 boots fine from the installation DVD, but will only boot to Vista without the DVD. The boot loader just doesn't see Win7.

Re-ordering the SATA HD's connectors on the motherboard so the boot drive is recognized 1st, with Vista on the 1st partition & then installing Win7 on the 2nd partition finally got it all working just fine. BCD editors & boot loaders now work also.

I might have missed this somewhere so bare with me and I will tell you what I have done so far. I have win 7 x64, which I have installed on my old hp laptop with no problems whatsoever. I have tried several things to get it to work on my gigabyte ga-ma78gm-2sh motherboard. I am using an IDE drive for the os. the dvd and a storage drive is SATA. I have removed the tv tuner, every memory stick, db15 connection and sata in ide mode. the furtherest I get is "starting installation". I have even tried using an ide dvd or usb dvd to install this. I dont get near as far using the IDE dvd and the db15 monitor is really slow and wont get to install. DVD sata in IDE mode using HDMI output seems to get the furtherest. Am I missing anything? I might try next by removing all sata devices. anything else to try?

I have an older system currently running Vista Home Premium x64. It is a Biostar K8NHA Grand nForce 3 250 chipset board, Athlon 64 3400+ (2.4Ghz) CPU, 2Gb ram, MSI GeForce 7600GT 512mb AGP video card, Maxtor 340Gb IDE HD and an NEC IDE DVD burner. Runs Vista x64 fine, only used connected to a TV for streaming Netflix, online TV shows, etc.

When trying to install Win 7 RC x64 after I click on the install screen, I get a message saying it needs a driver for the CD/DVD device. I have pointed it to look in the Vista system32/drivers, an nVidia folder with IDE drivers but it keeps telling me no driver found. Why would 7 need a driver for a standard IDE device? It reads the hard drive OK so I am assuming it has some IDE interface controller installed. I had uninstalled the anti-virus program in Vista before I ran the 7 RC install just in case.


I have searched the trheads and have found similar questions but I have a somewhat unique problem, I think.

I had originally used Vista and then signed up for the W7 Beta. I installed it on a partition of my HD and set up dual boot. Sometime afterwards I tried to use an online data storage program and was greeted with the BSOD on Vista. After 1 1/2 hours on the phone with tech support we were finally able to get Vista to boot again. During this I was still able to boot via W7 though. Also during this time a gremlin found its way into my DVD RW drive and it has ceased to work (I believe to be software related). Since then I have again tried to use online backups and found the same problem as before. I haven't figured out what has caused that and gave up on fixing it and began using W7 as my main OS.

What I would like to do is remove Vista from my system all together and begin using W7 Beta alone. I have been running into some problems with storage space and would like to get rid of the Vista partition. The twist is that I don't have a DVD drive as it not only stopped burning but also stopped reading CDs or DVDs.

Is there a way to remove the Vista partition without a DVD to boot from from for W7?

Thanks and my apologies for potentially redundant question...I use this computer for work and am really scared that I am going to fry it and not have a way to recover since I have no dvd drive.

Actually, I had this problem with 7000 and 7022 as well.
Insert DVDLaunch setup.exe from within Win7 7048Click "Install Now"
Almost immediately I get:
"Windows Setup cannot find a location to store temporary installation files. To install Windows, make sure that a partition on your boot disk has at least 688 megabytes (MB) of free space.

Error code: 0x80070490"

I've done a full day of searching for more info online and really haven't found anything that relates to Win7. I have done the following:
Verify available space on C: (which is over 400GB free)
Checked permissions and ownership on temp folders (although it was never changed from the initial install)
Launch setup.exe as Administrator

The install will work if I boot from DVD but will not perform an upgrade, of course. However, a full install is possible to the same or secondary hard drive.

Any ideas are welcome.

Hi all i'm new to this forum, and I'm having serious problems installing Windows 7!!

When I restart my computer to boot from the dvd I "Press any key to boot from DVD or CD" but then i just am left at a blank screen....i've let it sit for 10 minuiets with no luck. The CD-ROM drive stops like its done loading...

I've got my ISO burned to a DVD, I have tryed running the dvd on a virtual PC and it is able to boot just fine, and install off of it. Makes me think its a video card problem??

I'm running a nVidia GeForce 6200

Hi Everyone,
I've upgraded from XP Pro SP3 to Win7 Home Premium. I'm just getting started with this upgrade and am new to this forum, so I apologize in advance for any posting gaffes.

The immediate problems so far:

1. Sound - I have a Creative X-Fi Extreme Audio card, which worked OK the first few days after the upgrade. Now I'm getting no sound, (Win7, media file playback, Creative driver sound tests, etc). The Device Manager sees the card and doesn't report any conflicts or other problems.

I think it has something to do with the Windows Audio services not running. The Audio end Audio Endpoint Builder services are set to Automatic all right but I can't start them because the dependencies aren't running. So I checked the dependencies and the ones listed for the audio services are all running, I think. "Plug and Play" was one of the listed dependencies. The service by that name is running and so is the uPnP service. The problem here may be that I haven't correctly identified all "Plug and Play" services that ought to be going.

Another group of services that I think I've verified are those Remote Procedure Calls (RPC) ones. There are 3 that have names sounding close enough, and they're all running. Any ideas on this?

Oh yeah, the Xi-Fi driver and application suite is supposed to be the latest for Win7. However, those are the official drivers and programs. Those of you with some Creative experience know that a lot of driver support for this hardware is maintained unofficially on the Creative Forums. I just haven't figured out where to go on this yet.

2. BD-RW drive support. My drive is the LG Electronics GGW-H20L SATA BluRay player/burner, also back-compatible to DVD+/-RW. This worked OK in XP using Windows-provided drivers and LG firmware. The problem with Win7 is that I can't get the drive to be recognized by the OS. The Device Manager can see it and correctly identify it - the error is "This device cannot start (Code 10)." This translated to no drive letter assigned and no drive visible in Explorer.

LG support suggested a Firmware upgrade and sent me an executable installer, which of course failed because it couldn't see the drive. They also pointed me to the CD-DVD drive troubleshooter in Windows 7. This too failed but returned a few suggested places to look elsewhere. I'm in the process of exploring those, which is how I came here.

So that's where I am at the moment. Does anyone have any idea what might be happening in these two areas, or where I would be better off posting if this isn't the right place?

I've put some of my system specs in my forum profile. Should I also be pasting those in messages like this one, or is the profile the place for that stuff to be?

Thanks for your time and patience,

I'm sorry if this is a duplicate post, but honestly, I did Search for "Code 5" and found nothing.

I have a HD on an eight year old desktop PC that had an early beta version of Win-7 on it.
That old version has already expired.

I wanted to boot up with my Windows 7 Ultimate DVD and just do an overlay install. Well, every time I tried to boot the PC from the DVD drive, I got the dreded "Cannot Boot From CD, Code 5" error message. Of course I Googled the problem and found only one fix that I was able to execute.

The fix involves running the Setup on the Win-7 DVD from within an earlier version of Windows. The suggested version was Viata, but since I already had an early version of Win-7 on there, I tried that. So far so good.

The Setup program informed me that it would put the old OS in a folder called Windows.OLD.
I guess that's OK, because I can always delete that later. Eh?

This OLD computer may not run Windows 7 Ultimate very well at all, but at least I found a "Work Around" for that nasty Code 5 error message.

+ Win-7 did get the sound working and set up my wireless N card with no problem.
But it doesn't seem to know exactly what to do with my 8 (or maybe 9) year old video card.
I can live with 800x600 resolution, for now. It does have one higher res., but the on-screen text is almost unreadable. But for a testing machine, this one is working pretty well. I even got Windows Mail working with a minimum of effort.

Cheers Mates!

Hi guys, I have a problem with Windows 7 Ultimate x64 setup and it's quite frustrating. Before I explain what is happening let me give you my system specifications

CPU: Intel Core i7 870
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4 rev 2.0
Ram: Excelram 2x2GB Red Culvert 1600 mhz
Disk: Seagate Barracuda 320GB SATA II 3Gb/s
Graphics: Sapphire Radeon HD 6870 1Gb GDDR5
DVD Drive: NEC Optiarc

Ok so I've put in the Windows 7 DVD, booted from it, deleted the partitions and created them anew and formatted the non-system one where Windows is to be installed. Windows then extracts the files normally and reboots the system. Here's where things get tricky. The system hangs after the screen "Setup is updating registry settings" and doesn't move anywhere. I even left it on during the night and it didn't budge. In some instances (I've tried installing more than 10 times) I actually get pass this screen but then get stuck at "Completing installation". And I even got pass that screen in one attempt when I ejected the CD, but when the system rebooted, it hung at "Starting Windows" screen.

Now I have read a lot about this problem on the forums and here's what I've tried so far, to no avail of course:

Removing one stick of ram
Removing all external devices, everything not needed and setting the floppy drive to NONE in BIOS
Removing everything from USB slots and disabling them in BIOS
Entering Safemode and opening Device manager through the command prompt and disabling/uninstalling VGA drivers
Switching SATA connectors on the motherboard

Thats about everything I tried with no success. Does anybody have any idea what could be causing this and what the solution might be? It's a new computer, was built yesterday and it's really frustrating not getting it to work.

Thank you,

I have just purchased some upgrades for my rig

I now have the following new parts

ASUS P7P55D Motherboard
Intel I7-860 Processor
2 x 500 GB Seagate Baracuda HDD

I added them in with my exisiting

2 x Nvidia 8800 GTX in SLI mode
2 x 250 GB Seagate Baracuda HHD

I have a PSU pushing out plenty of juice. I have tried to instal Win 7 Ultimate 64 Bit edition (Upgrading my last rig from XP 64 Pro worked fine)

When I have set up the RAID for the HDD i set the system to boot from Optical Drive. the system then unpacks the windows files from DVD. I then get the starting windows picture with the Windows symbol made up from the flying balls of colour. However then at about 30 sec the rig resets and goes back in to the loop of unpacking the files going to the widows splash screen then crashing and repeating.

I have tried to do the install with only 1 2 Gb Stick of Ram and only 1 GFX card.

I have also tried to instal using the MOBO abiliy to use SATA drives as IDE.

All attempts and configuations end in the same thing happening.

I have been told to force boot to Opical then when it goes round take it out so that it runs from drives to force it to rn from files on HDD for installation. nothing works that I or others can seem to think of.

I am hoping that some one out there may have an idea on how to fix it so I can get an install to work for Windows 7.

On a side note I did try to reinstall Windows XP 64 Pro anf then up grade again. however this just went in to another loop of crashing at the Installing devices with 34 mins to go.

Any help would be great and a solution would be outstanding. would like to try and get it sorted before having to pay out to have it fixed

Hi there...

I got 7600.16385.090713-1255 x64 Windows 7, but i'm really struggling at installing it.

I currently have XP pro x32 service pack 3 on my pc, but it simply wont install.

I know that it wont run from XP itself, as it gives me the "This Installation disc isn't compatible with your version of Windows, To upgrade, you need the correct installation disc, for more information check your computer's system information. To install a new copy of windows, restart (boot) your computer using the installation disc and then select custom (advanced)" error...

I've searched forum after forum but can't seem to get it to install...

I've burned an copy of the iso to a disk & tried running it via booting, but it doesn't start installing... it just skips to windows XP...

can it be my hardware or my cd image that is wrong?

My hardware:
AMD Phenom 9950 BE
ASRock K10n78 Motherboard
2GB Samsung + 2x1GB Corsair XMS Ram (tried combinations of them by removing some as well)
XFX 9800gt 512MB G/C (tried using the onboard geforce 8200 card as well)
Seagate 500gb sata H/D
TSSTcorp CD/DVDW TS-H552U Samsung IDE DVD Drive
DLink Wireless adapter
500W power Supply

The contents of my DVD:

Am I missing some files needed to boot up in startup or is my DVD ROM not suited for the job?

Thank you

PS - I've tried installing it from a flash drive, but no success...

What I can say what i was doing when i got the blue screens:

-first two times all i know is i was in ventrilo (voice communication program) using a usb mic and one of those times i was playing Team Fortress 2
-3rd and 4th times i was recording with my Presonas Firestudio Project interface.
-5th crash i was away. i do'nt think i had anything major running and the screens were off and i was out of the room.
-6th crash i was playing DOD:S for about 30 mins Fire Studio project was off.
-7th crash playing TF2 for 5 mins at most. Fire Studio project was on and default audio device.

My system hiccups sometimes when it shouldn't with these specs. Such as when typing in a web browser sometimes ill be typing and the cursor will freeze for a second then all that I typed while it was frozen will all pop out at once. or when playing games like TF2 there will be lots of sound loops (repeats a split second sound clip 3 to 5 times then proceeds) and video hiccups. these might be because my internet is bad also?

So far i have done the following to try to fix this error:

-Disk Defrag on all drives
-Maleware (0 threats)
-IoBit secutry 360 (0 threats)
-AVG free (1 threat removed)
-CCleaner (both registry and disk clean)

I'm 123-221 watts over recommend supply. shouldn't be a problem there.

-Did some GPU stress tests using FurMark:
First i did a Burn-In test for 30 minutes @ full screen Resolution: 1680x1050 (FS) - AA:2 samples:
max temp 81, avg fps 25, max fan speed 47%

then some Benchmarks at 1 min each one right after the other with little time in between to cool off:
-BM 1 SCORE:1488 points (24 FPS, 60000 ms) FPS: min:22, max:31, avg:24 - OPTIONS: DynBkg
-BM 2 SCORE:943 points (15 FPS, 60000 ms) FPS: min:13, max:19, avg:15 - OPTIONS: DynCam
-BM 3 SCORE:1318 points (21 FPS, 60000 ms) FPS: min:22, max:23, avg:21 - OPTIONS: none (burn in)
-BM 4 SCORE:646 points (10 FPS, 60000 ms) FPS: min:11, max:12, avg:10 - OPTIONS: XB
-BM 5 SCORE:2179 points (36 FPS, 60000 ms) FPS: min:34, max:40, avg:36 - OPTIONS: FX

no crashes. temps look good.

Thoughts of possible suspects:
-Driver issues? (sound cards?)
-Bad Windows install? Maybe bad windows install discs? Discs were bought off eBay and looked questionable. I will get new ones from M$ and reformat soon.
-When I first installed windows Pagefile.sys and hibernate.sys were huge (~13gb each) so i disabled hibernate and disabled Pagefile.sys. -I enabled my PageFile.sys after 6th crash to see if that helped but crashed again but i got a crash dump 7th time.
-Monitor issues? maybe the cabling on the second monitor is messing with something (DVI to HDMI converter on vid card with a HDMI to DVI cable to monitor). I just didn't have another DVI lying around). 2 different resolutions, sizes and aspect ratios?

Probably caused by : memory_corruption ( nt!MiUnmapPageInHyperSpaceWorker+49 )

RAM is the problem.

1. Load bios defaults, save and reboot. Make sure AMD Cool and Quiet is on. Also, should be no overclocking.
2. Uninstall AVG (replace with MSE for now) and uninstall Daemon Tools.
3. If still crashes, decrease the total amount of RAM by removing sticks.

PSU Wattage: 429 Watts Consider a more powerful unit.

This was my first PC build and everything went well except for installing Windows 7.
I am clean installing Windows 7 Professional 64bit.
My BIOS is able to detect all my hardware (2 harddrives, dvd rom drive, dvd burner, 4 sticks of ram 2gb each, etc.)
Hard drives are in RAID1

While I am installing Windows 7 Professional 64 bit I get up to the point where it is installing Expanding Windows Files and it says 0%... and stays there. It has been hanging at 0% for 20 minutes and I tried to find out why. One source said to only have 2 sticks of RAM in when installing windows 7 and then put the other 2 sticks in after.

Currently I have 2 2GB sticks of RAM in my computer. What do I need to do so I can get passed the Expanding Windows Files installation? Could it be my windows 7 disk? I have it burned onto a DVD and it runs perfectly up to that point.

Here are my system specs:

It seems I've gotten myself into quite the mess here.

I am trying to relocate my Users folder into another HDD to save space on my OS HDD by using this guide: Move the Users Directory in Windows 7

I am currently inside cmd on the Win7 Ultimate Edition(x64) DVD and have executed the following commands with some edited results next to them:

robocopy /copyall /mir /xj D:Users C:Users
"Directories skipped: 51 Files failed: 1"
(Cmd interpreted my C: drive to be the D: drive and my target HDD to be C: in recovery mode)

robocopy /copyall /mir /xj D:Users C:Users
"Directories skipped: 2114 Files failed: 1"

Giving up on the 51 folders and the 1 file, I continued:

rmdir /S /Q D:Users
"D:Users*MYUSERNAME*AppDataRoamingRealUpdateUPGRAD~1 - The directory is not empty

dir D:Users*MYUSERNAME*AppDataRoamingRealUpdate
"Volume in drive D has no label."etc.
(1 DIR found --- UpgradeHelper)

dir D:Users*MYUSERNAME*AppDataRoamingRealUpdateUpgradeHelper'
"File Not Found"

chkdsk /f D:
"Windows has checked the file system and found no problems."
"Failed to transfer logged messages to the event log with status 50."
(Chkdsk did not help getting rid of the offending folder/file.)

I have decided to not leave command prompt until I have gotten some solid advice on this issue. Thank you in advance and I hope for speedy replies as I am stuck in recovery mode.

New HP Laptop with Windows 7 - Windows Backup software doesn't recognise DVD as writeable, but Windows7 Explorer writes just fine to the same DVD-R.

If I do
Control Panel>System and security>Backup and Restore
click on Backup Now
....this gives "Backup in progress..." bar - gets to about 25% and stops with the message
"Insert Removeable media
"Windows backup needs a CDDVD or USB drive to continue" (even though there is a DVD-R in E:, to which I have just successfully burned a very small test file using Explorer. E: shows on Backup pane as being selected as destination drive).
If I click on "More information" another dialogue box pops up with instructions to
"Label and insert a blank media
"Please write the following label on a blank media and insert it into E:
"FREDDY 02/01/2011"
even though there is a labelled disc in there.
(Of course that's a bum instruction from Windows anyway - it won't accept forward slashes - but that's OK - I label it without those. Still doesn't work.)

If on the other hand I just select a file in Explorer and burn it ends up on the DVD no problem. With that same successfully burned DVD - Backup will still not recognise the DVD-R.

I can use a DVD-R with a small test file burned OK to it, or a virgin disc from the box - makes no difference......

Hope someone can help.....!
