Hello,

I'm having some problems updating DT, and after following the advice given in this post http://www2.daemon-tools.cc/dtcc/showthread.php?t=2138 to uninstall it properly and try again, I still have problems.

When I'm installing the program a message appears saying that windows has found new hardware, DVD Rom SCSI, and that it can't install it.

How can I solve this?

But that thread explains how to fix "No drive letter(s) assigned to the virtual drive(s), or virtual drive(s) disappear".

That's not the problem I described, what happens is that windows won't install the DVD ROM SCSI new hardware that it finds WHILE installind DT, and it doen't finish installing DT.

You've to install drivers via cdrom.inf - that's what matters.
Also check if you've some file like infcache.1 or similar in system, try to move/delete it.

But what hardware do I install those drivers to?

I mean, which device do I have to look for and give it those drivers?

I've just ran into this similar problem....

I tried installing Alcohol 120% (stay with me on this, it involves D-Tools as well) and I came up the same "Found new Hardware RAID/SCSI" and then the pop-up window to find the drivers for this new software. I set it to automatic, the driver won't work, and Alcohol 120% installation reverses itself.

Now, my buddy comes over, tries to install Daemon-Tools 3.47 and the SAME message comes up. Now I've installed D-Tools and Alcohol in the past and I've never seen this issue occur. He has a completely different system than mine.

The only thing (which may be a coincidence) is that we both installed Dawn of War Winter Assault (Securrom 7) and Civilizaitons IV (SafeDisc 4.6) on our system before the aforementioned installations of Alcohol and D-Tools...I'm curious if that has something to do with it...

I haven't used Anti-Blaxx or any other 3rd party software either...

When the message pops up to install the drivers, try manually installing the drivers and point it to Windows\inf\cdrom.inf

there is no cdrom.inf in my windows/inf folder. :-/

D-tools was working fine a week ago on this computer. Now i'm just now trying to use it again and there are no driver letters assigned.

i checked to see if there were no driver files installed on the virtual drive, and that seems to be the problem.

but there isn't a cdrom.inf in that folder.

there isn't a cdrom.inf file in my windows/inf folder. can i expand it from my windows instalation cd or is there someplace i need to download it?

Run the system file checker and it will ask you to insert your windows CD when needed.

I am having this problem too, but with a twist.

This was all running fine, then i had to reboot in order to install a different program. I was able to completly install d-tools and use it with no problems.

After rebooting, i get the "Virtual SCSI driver not detected" error message. So, i get on this forum, read for a while, and check. all my virtual cd drivers have the correct drivers, my SCSI drivers are pointed at what i named the d-tools drivers.

Any help would be appreciated.


**edit**

for some reason it's not updating when i post. i don't know if it takes a while, so sorry if i double post.

yes, i have the drivers there. d347bus and prt.sys and j347bus and prt.sys. the j drivers are my current drivers, the d's are from a previous i nstall, i guess.

Thanks.

@wolfguard:
Check if Daemon Tools driver files are present in Windows\System32\Drivers folder.

I have 2 sets. the d347bus.sys/d347prt.sys, and j347bus and prt.sys. The J sets are what i am using on this install.

I suggest you remove Daemon Tools via control panel -> software, check thread about error 25002 in common problems and solutions forum to remove leftovers, reboot, then re-install.

It has nothing todo with this Game or Securom 7 because i have the same Problem like your friend. I have formatted my PC 2 weeks ago and on the fresh system i have only installed some drivers that i need and then Alcohol and Daemon Tools and they have no drive letters, i must poinjt it manually to Windows/inf and thats not only by these two programs. i must do this by everything new device, also when i enable my Floppy device :( that makes me annoying.

i formatted 3 times more after this happend the first time to me and still the same problem, now i give up... Damn M$ products ;)

Maybhe someone has an Idea :rolleyes:
