Windows 7: Mass Storage Controller

04 Oct 2012   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64 Linux Mint 16
Mass Storage Controller

Hello All,

Toshiba Satellite M305-S49052
Model Content Page

Just did a clean Retail install of Windows 7 on this laptop. Everything is perfect except for the enclosed snip of device manager, showing the issue with the Mass Storage Controller.

All windows updates done 100% and I looked over all the drivers and software for the Vista and 7 installs on this machine, and I`m coming up empty, or just missing something. And of course it seems it did not come with any driver cds.

Would it be a driver that installs itself if you were to connect an external hard drive, other then a usb flash drive ? Because they all install and work fine.

Any insight, suggestions ?

Thanks, Brian

Card reader possibly.

That's where I'd start. If it has a card reader and it's not already installed under Storage then install O2 Card Reader Controller for Windows 7 (32/64)(v3.31.03; 09-04-2009; 15.94M).

Otherwise I'd download and extract the next three downloads for Chipset and HD and browse into them from the missing Device to see if it picks anything up.

If necessary you can trace the exact hardware make/model using Hardware Identification
