    Windows 7 Professional keeps dropping the DVD/CD drive

    Working with a fresh install (2nd attempt) of Windows 7 Professional on new hardware. The motherboard is a Gigabyte EP45-UD3P. Running 4G of RAM and an Intel Q9400 Quad Core CPU. The DVD/CD optical drive is a Pioneer DVR-218L.

    Here's the problem - after two fresh installs, Windows 7 drops the DVD/CD drive and I get the following error in Device Manager (The device cannot start {code 10}). After the install, the drive works for a period of time, then stops working and I get the error code.

    The driver appears to be a standard Windows driver (CD-ROM driver).

    I've tried uninstalling the drive and re-installing it in Device Manager but it does not work - I continue to get the device error.

    I've also swapped out the DVD/CD drive to insure it's not a bad unit. Same problem with both drives.

    What do you suggest for next steps?? Could it be an issue with the motherboard?? A driver problem?

    I visited the Pioneer web site - could not find any help or additional Windows 7 drivers.

    What now??

    HELP - Drive not recognized in Windows 7 install

    Im having a hell of a time trying to install a clean install of windows 7 on a Samsung spinpoint f1 320GB drive.

    The BIOS sees the drive... BUT the RAID controller won't see it if I try to add it to an array.

    The command prompt (recovery prompt in w7 setup) also sees the drive as C:\, and can format it, rename it, etc... I can also browse the drive for drivers (its empty, but it shows up in the device list when if i click to install controller drivers)

    But when I go to try and install W7 to that drive it doesn't show up...

    :/ im a bit lost... also neither fixmbr or fixboot are part of the recover console on w7 so im stuck with chkdsk, which says the drive is fine, and format, which I have done twice...

    helppppp..

    I forgot to add that I have a second drive, a Seagate 500GB 7200.11, that DOES show up in the setup...

    how installed windows 7 drive D while i have already window 10 on C drive

    Windows drive labeled ad D: instead of C:

    That doesn't work very well, some software/drivers will NOT install to any drive but the C drive because the person who compiled them was an idiot *Smile how installed windows 7 drive D while i have already window 10 on C drive :)
