Question about Toshiba Satellite A1O A15 A20 A25 A30 A35 A40 A45 Series 15 inch LCD Display- N150X2-L01 (N150X2L01) CD-ROM Drive
The drive is not recognized by the os, cant run any disc, i have checked in device manager it says;Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
I have a Toshiba A305 S6825 with a Pioneer DVD DVRKD08L ATA DVD player but no disc will work . When i go to device mgr it reads "windows (39) cannot install driver. WILL NOT WORK. ERROR CODE 37 I have the same issue with the Pioneer DVRKD08L drive in the Toshiba A305 I just purchased....help!
Are these drives you have fitted yourself, or been added as after market drives?
If so you have run in to the odd way Toshiba set their optical drives as master or slave, although this is generally and IDE #1 error.
To fix this you need to solder pin 45 and 47 together.
47 is the key pin here, as it controls whether the drive is in SLAVE or MASTER mode.
grounded, the drive is in MASTER, open, it is in SLAVE.
pin 45 is simply a grounding pin.
So you'll need to open up the drive, turn it over, and put a small blob of solder on the two pins next to each other - 45 and 47.
If they are original drives or used to work then uninstall the drives and the IDE controllers in Device manager and reboot, letting windows redetect and install the hardware. Also try reinstalling the motherboard drivers available from Toshiba's support site.
