    Hi ... While I'm trying to install Windows 7 I get an error >>> A required CD/DVD drive devise driver is missing . If you have a driver floppy disk , CD, DVD, or USB flash drive, please insert it now .
    Note: If the Windows installation media is in the CD/DVD drive, you can safely remove it for this step

    It start the install process but stop and gives that error above . I'm thinking it needs the optical driver , yes ? If so , How does one go about doing so ? I have a Toshiba Satellite A200 , Model - PSAE0C-AH508C laptop .

    Pls help ,

    Thanks

    Are you installing from USB or DVD ?

    If USB, make sure you have the flash drive in a USB 2.0 port, I got that error when I had the flash drive in a USB 3.0 port

    You need to go to Toshiba web site and download the driver for your model.

    Your wasting your time using imgburn it can not make bootable USB but it can make ISO from DVD then use one the tools you were advised to use.

    hi,
    listen it's not complicated.
    if u r sure about the driver u downloaded just integrate it in win 7 iso (u may use windows download integrator google it or search it on the forum)
    after that u just have to extract (use 7-zip for ex) the new iso to an usb stick. to be bootable its primary partition must be active.
    finally boot on the usb.
    good luck.

    What .exe file all you needed to do was use imgburn to make an ISO file from your windows 7 dvd then select that ISO file with Rufus.

    No only thing you need to convert to ISO is your Windows 7 DVD run Imgburn and select create image file from disk.
