1265i dvd writer

[ Edited ]

Bewildered.  Purchased HP DVD Writer 1265i yesterday at Best Buy.


Cannot find drivers ANYWHERE.  Cannot find one single post on this site about this dvd writer.


When I installed this (physically), I got no on-screen messages indicating any kind of installation of the dvd drive;

it shows up in Device Manager; system says driver is up to date.      ......but says 


Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)



I have Windows 7 64 bit; HP Pavillion a6826f.

Thanks in advance

Hi Ron,


It's normal that the driver for your optical drive is provided by the operating system.


Try following the procedure under the sub-heading 'Let me fix it myself' on the link below to remove the Upper and Lower filters and see if this helps the 'code19' issue.

Did you remember to delete the previous DVD drive from the system?
