Re: Lite-on cd and Toshiba DVD

If you installed these drives yourself take a look and make sure they're wired up the correct way. If they both run off the same IDE cable make sure that one drive is set to master and the other to slave. XP doesn't need any drivers from any disks it has it's own and they will suffice. The most common fault apart from the master/slave one is the cable is back to front. I.E. the red trace on the wiring harness should plug into pin one on the CD drive. With all drives I've seen this has always been the end closest to the power socket. To locate pin one on the motherboard it's either marked as 1 or the end of the socket for pin one has white mark on it. If your hard drive cable red trace is the lowest pin on the socket so is the IDE2 cable. Or if they are horizontal they would both be the same ends. Another hint is to ensure your IDE2 is enabled in your bios. Tapping the Delete key whilst booting will normally take you to the bios. If after all this you still get corrupt driver messages go to your hardware manager in XP and remove any CD drivers. Close down and reboot and XP should find them again and you should be in business. If your bios is OK and the CD roms wired correctly, there's no other reason they wont work. Unless they're faulty of course. BMW

Re: Lite-on cd and Toshiba DVD

Does the error messages relate to drivers D and E ? Does they work before properly or did you installed them just now (one of them or both)?

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

if you physically unplug your cd/dvd restart your computer the plug it back in the found new hardware wizard should activate

if you dont have motherboard disk you will need to download the drivers
Adaptec's UDF Reader enables MultiRead CD-ROM drives to read UDF-formatted CD-R and CD-RW discs (such as those written with DirectCD) under Windows 95/98/98SE/NT 4.0/2000.

hope this helps

Disk drive does not work. Possibly need a driver. What kind of removable drive? Rewriteable DVD written on face. Toshiba Satellite A15 series bought quite a few years back. Windows XP home.

I would go into the BIOS and make sure that the correct drive and drive type is there. Up on the boot sequence, hit F2 and go into the BIOS.

Also, go to the toshiba website download the drivers you need. I do it all the time.

there will be bunch of random letters and number under that control
try to find this one

if you click this check if you will be able to see DVD rom at the right side of the registry editor window
you must delete the upper and lower filters
after that restart the computer and try to put in dvds

for vista or win7

- click start and type in the start search regedit
after this just do the same thing with the win xp instructions


if still doesnt work try to uninstall/reinstall the cd/dvd driver


try also to update the DVD codec. you can also try to download the most updated windows media player, power DVD or any software/program that have dvd codecs or that acts like a player for DVD

CD drive not found in XP

while booting up as soon as you see any writing in the top right hand corner, click F2 and enter setup
look for booting order, and make sure the cd rom is in the first place before boot from hard drive. save and exit and the reboot with the XP disk in the cd rom drive. Try a repair from disk or if you want to a total reinstall.
Another thing you might try is click on F8 on boot up and enter in Safe Mode, and see what is giving your the headache.
