    We purchased a warranty plan at time of purchasing the notebook/laptop, but the dealer, The Source seems to be unable to help with this problem, and are suggesting we contact Toshiba, which is what put us in touch with the number here. Sorry, it's very complicated!!!

1) Check the connections, may be your CD drive inside of your machine is not connected.
2) If you computer is under warranty and after check that is not working ask for a new CD drive.
Usually you don't need a drivers to get this CD drive working on XP or Vista

Installed new hard drive p105 s6064 now cd drive wont work dont have recovery discs


Dell recovery will not work in a Toshiba Laptop. Just make sure the boot order is set to CD/DVD driver first that will automatically start the CD/DVD driver when disc is loaded.

How do I restore my toshiba laptop to factory settings without the disk?


If you do not have a Recovery disk, you may be able to purchase one from Toshiba.
The other way is to format your hard drive and re-install Windows. Use a Windows installation CD; it must match the Windows version on the Windows Product Code label on the bottom of your laptop.
You will also need to download the device drivers for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB support site, make sure the download the correct XP or Vista version of the device drivers which matches the Windows version you are installing.

Toshiba laptop cd drive not working


If its not detected in device manager and your laptop has HDD recovery
1 type toshiba application installer in the start search box, press enter
2 in that program choose "install application and drivers", click next
3 it will go to a window where you have the list of all the drivers
4 look for the CDDVD drive, click it to highlight
5 click install

afterwards if its still not detected you probably have a hardware issue and probably the drive itself needs to be replaced

I have a Toshiba Tecra S3 laptop with a standard Toshiba SATA hard drive (MK6032GSX rv. AS311G). It was a corporate hand me down. It is in dire need of a re-format due to age and virus but when I try it...


Windows XP does not have the SATA driver on the install CD.
You need to download the SATA driver for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB support/download page.
If the laptop has floppy drive, then copy the SATA driver to the floppy and when you boot up with the Windows XP install CD and then press F6 to install the SATA drivers which is on the floppy as instructed..

Toshiba a200/205 series Hard disk is toshiba mk1246gsx need compatible driver for windows xp I need to convert my OS from vista to XP


Well... this is common on newer laptops. It is due to the fact your HDD is SATA (Serial ATA) and Windows XP CD does not have the drivers needed to recognize it. The solution I use is a bit High Tech: to remaster your Windows XP CD including the drivers needed. Or, just settle to live with Vista until January, when Windows 7 will be available to the public. If you are not faint of heart, google this: nLite; with this program you can remaster your XP CD. (You need a working PC with CD-RW to actually do the job).

Lost CD-Recovery


If you are speaking for your laptop, double click my computer and see if you have a D drive, most newer computers have a partition on the hard drive that has the recovery feature installed on the D drive. You would need to boot in the SAFE mode if possible and go to the D drive and run setup.exe. If this is not possible, you will have to purchase a new operating system CD and probably have to download drivers from Toshiba for your laptop. Good Luck - BPCS
