HP dv6500 slimtype DVD A DS8A1P ATA RRS feed

  • Question

  • hey guys, 

     i just installed windows 7 x64; and when it was installed, my CD/DVD (slimtype DVD A DS8A1P ATA) drive was not found. so i went into the registry and deleted lower and upper filters for the registry key


    and it worked.

     However, itunes does not find the drive and gives me an error.

     how can i fix this without changing the registry?

    I'd suggest installing the device drivers in the Compatibility Wizard. Remove that hardware device in Device Manager, right-click on the driver executable/installer file and select the Compatibility tab; click the checkbox before Run this program in Compatibility mode for option and select Windows Vista in the list-down box; then try installing the device driver. In addition, you can use the Windows XP driver for testing.


    If the problem still persists, please understand that Windows 7 is a new operating system (only the beta version) and whole driverstore has been reprogrammed; some old driver is not compatible with new OS. I suggest that you should wait for another period of time till the retail version is released and push the vendor company to upgrade their device driver. Thanks for your time and understanding!


    Good Luck!
