Windows 7: Windows 7 does not find Blu-ray drivers

Windows 7 does not find Blu-ray drivers

When I installed Windows 7 RC, install did not find the driver for my Lite-on DH-4B1S Blu-ray device. Going through the normal driver search in Device Manager worked and the driver was installed.

Now, with Windows 7 RTM, the same problem occured, but going through the normal driver search in Device Manager does not yield any results.

This shows up in device manager as a Serial ATA Controller, with a Yellow !. I assume any generic SATA driver would work, but I have been unable to find the right one within Windows or on the Web. The Lite-on site lists only a firmware upgrade and after dowloading two utilities to "find drivers" they both identified a missing driver, but neither had any suggestions to fix the problem.

Suggestions.

Hi there
you should use the VISTA drivers that came with your hardware.

If you are using Windows 7 x-64 and there aren't any Vista x-64 drivers you'll just have to wait.

BTW remember playng Blu Ray DVD's on a PC has inherent problems with device authentication / encryption etc.

You might find a version of WinDVD or PowerDVD works -- your hardware should come with a copy of one of these.

Playing Blu Ray movies on a PC at the moment with all the stupid DRM Hollywood adds to the stuff is one of the main reasons the Torrents are still going strong.

If I LEGALLY buy a blu ray DVD then I should be able to play it WHENEVER and WHEREVER I want.

The situation is a bit different than what I seemed to have conveyed. This Lite-On SATA Bla-ray player was running fine under Windows 7 RC. This is really not about Blu-ray, since Windows is not seeing the device at all. It fact it appears that Windows is not seeing the 2nd SATA controller, since that is what is showing up with a Yellow! (it is enabled in BIOS). I went to the Intel site, but I didn't find anything re drivers for onboard SATA controllers. Under Windows 7 RC Device Manager, Windows found the right SATA Controller drivers and then the Blue-ray player just showed up. This is the second motherboard and second Blue-ray device I have had on this 32-but system.

The SATA drivers are part of the Intel chipset package.

The newest version that I'm aware of is 9.1.1.1015. It supports newer chipsets than my X58, but the X58 is included. It works fine with Windows 7 X64 7600.

Intel doesn't make it easy to find at their site. Here is one source:

I have downloaded the drivers. I will install them when Media Center is done recording for the night. Thanks.

The second SATA controller is likely NOT to be Intel, because it's not part of the core chipset. What ARE your hardware specs? Motherboard?

I looked up your motherboard. The second SATA controller is a Marvell (same as mine ) You need this driver:

BTW, you should copy your system specs to your profile, so you won't have to show it again in each thread.

Hope this gets you going.

Oh yes, this is really obvious now I see the Marvell prompt every time I boot, but for some reason I thought it applied only to when you were using the controller in a RAID environment. This is why I have been having so many problems with this for so long. Yes, I will put my config info in my profile. I am so used to being on The Green Button forum that I forgot to update this one. Thanks.

"Second SATA controller" didn't register with me.

On my own system, I've disabled the add-on Marvell controller (which is actually SAS rather than SATA), and have my four SATA devices all running on the Intel controller. (The Intel controller provides 6 SATA ports.)

That saves a few seconds at boot time, as the Marvell controller is turned off in the BIOS settings.
