Go to the BIOS screen....F2 at the splash screen. See if the new dvd drive is showing up in the BIOS and what interface is it listed under. It may be listed under an interface that has not been anable in the BIOS, highlight the device or interface, hit enable and then hit F10 to save and reboot.
I just replaced my original CD/DVD ROM with a Toshiba SD-R2512 CD-RW/DVD ROM in my 1805-S253 running Windows ME. I used "Roxio Easy CD Creator" for writing to CD's. Everything was "plug'n'play" except the bezel that came with the new drive had to be swapped out. Windows ME recognized the new drive immediately and I didn't have to load any new drivers. This upgrade will probably work on other 1800 or 1805 Satellite series machines.
Did you install the windows system etc? If not boot from the system restore cd and it should work. If it will not boot from the cd-rom then more damage was done then was apparent and the unit would require factory qualified repair. Be sure of the cost before committing to repair since on laptops sometimes it is cheaper to replace the repair. Good Luck
You can't just change
it from pio to udma. Go to Control Panel, System,Hardware,Device
Manager, then expand IDE ATA/ATAPI, then right click on Primary IDE and
select uninstall. Do the same for secondary IDE. Then just reboot your
system, and it will autodetect all IDE devices. After that when you
check, you should not have any devices in PIO, and your burner should
work correctly. If not, stick it in a hyperbaric chamber for 2 days and
see if that helps.
the same problem of mine is my drive cannot able to read DVD then i make the solution if you have CD RAM/ROM + DVD ROM then change it to CD/DVD RAM because in case of CD RAM and DVD ROM it may read CD but not DVD but sometimes it can read DVD also but when we copy data to computer it may freeze or give us error so i give you one suggest to buy a new CD/DVD RAM
at the back of the drive there should be some pins with platic removeable pieces,most times it will tell you which pins are slave or master and have a diagram on the case of the drive etc,make sure they are set to slave.
The DVD -R +R means that you can read these types of DVDs that have been created elsewhere, it doesn't mean you can write to your DVD under the format of -R or +R. The CD is a CDRW which means you can read and write to CDs.
I don't think that a factory Satellite P100 has the ability to write to either DVD -R or +R, but to only CDs. I have a P200 that has a DVD -R +R/CDRW and it can't write DVDs. These DVDs you put in are for read only. My Toshiba A215 can but it's a DVDRW/CDRW.
