Windows 7: Sony BDU-X10S Blu-Ray drive not working

Sony BDU-X10S Blu-Ray drive not working

Sorry if this is the wrong subforum for this thread.

I've recently purchased a Sony BDU-X10S Blu-Ray internal SATA ROM drive for my PC but it doesn't seem to install correctly in Windows 7. I had originally installed Seven as an upgrade install over Vista, but I didn't have the drive installed before I installed Seven. I'm dual-booting Vista and Seven at the moment and Vista seems to have no trouble with seeing the drive and playing Blu-Ray discs, but this is a less than desirable workaround.

The drive itself shows up in Device Manager under the 'DVD/CD-ROM drives' section as "SONY BD-ROM BDU-X10S ATA DEVICE" with a little yellow exclamation mark sign on it, and the drive details read "Windows cannot verify the digital signature for the drivers required for this device. A recent hardware or software change might have installed a file that is signed incorrectly or damaged, or that might be malicious software from an unknown source. (Code 52)". The drive does not show up in Computer.

I have tried uninstalling the driver and rebooting but when windows attempts to automatically install the proper driver I simply get a dialog box stating that an attempt to find the correct driver has failed, and to contact the manufacturer. No drivers as such came with the drive and windows Vista seemed happy enough to auto-install it without asking for any drivers.

Windows update and the 'update driver' function of device manager fail to find any different drivers; they both return stating that "the correct driver for this device is installed".

Does anyone know of any other way I can work around this? If possible, is there a way for me to boot into my working Vista install that has no problems with the BD-ROM drive and 'extract' the driver that windows is using? Both of the versions of Windows I have installed at the moment are the x64 platform variants.

Thanks for any help or feedback.

Despite my many google and forum searches I evidently thought this was a blu-ray- or my drive- specific problem rather than just something that would apply to optical drives.

After posting this thread I noticed a link in the "similar threads" section:
and the solution posted here has completely fixed the trouble.

I guess I should have searched more generally!
