win 7 - required cd/dvd drive device driver is missing

Postby Sethioz » Mon Mar 14, 2011 10:24 pm

windows 7 / win 7 error that occurs when trying to install windows 7 (64 bit only ?).
just a note, I DID NOT INSTALL WIN7 for myself ! so dont say im using it, cuz im not using gay7.
full error message is like this:

A required CD/DVD drive device driver is missing. If you have a driver floppy disk, CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now.

NOTE: if the windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step

first of, this isnt what it says it is. this is why i call it gay7. let me point out some retarded things first
floppy ??? nobody fucking uses floppys anymore, pcs dont even have it.
CD/DVD ?? how the fuck can you put 4gb installation on CD ?? microsoft dont even think what they write ... pure retardness.

so to the fix / error part now. this isnt what it says at all. it just happend to me out of nowhere and i realized something.
first i tried to install it and when expanding files, on 52% it said that corrupted or something. so i tought that DVD must have been fucked up during burning process. ive had this a lot before. its RW tho. so i tought i try it again and in meanwhile ill burn another RW and see if it works.
so it stoppedo n 52% again, ok its corrupt.
now i put in the freshly burned DVD and i got that error about driver.
so my conclusion, is that this driver shit is cuz it cant read some types of DVD/s. that DVD is different from the one i used before.

one i used before which worked is "TDK RW+" says "TDK +RW" on DVD
other one that didnt work is "Fujifilm DVD +RW"

so if you get this error, dont bother looking for nonexisting drivers, just get another DVD and try that. i suggest DVD- not +.
ive had lot of problems with +, they corrupt more easily and give some retarded errors.
there might be this driver after all, not sure. maybe it needs some advanced driver to read that DVD, but i doubt. cuz both are DVD +RW. its just that it doesnt like this company.
i also had this in past, many times one company DVDs just fucked up. fujifilm is known crap.

NOTE - this also might be badly burnt (corrupt) copy or bad DVD. sometimes it burns perfectly, without errors, but later when you try to read the DVD, it will have issues. ive also had this a lot, mostly with DVD+
