Question about Toshiba SD M1712 Internal DVD Drive

1 Answer

Cannot find device driver anywhere.......

I recently purhased the SD M1712 Dual Layer DVD drive and for some reason my OS, WINXP SP2 no longer sees the device. It appears to be installed but not recognised. I have searched everywhere for the device driver both in at home, work and all over the net to no avail. The only thing I have fi=ound is updating the firmware which I have done but still the device is not fully functioning. If anyone has a copy of the drivers please let me know, asap. regards

Dvd layer 2 not accessible on dual layer disk

Ah, the Dual-Layer Problem. Well, first off, you bought an LG. Problem solved!!! ASUS, Pioneer, TSSCorp, Sony, ASUTek USA, or any other brand OTHER than LG is good for burning Dual-Layer DVD's. And for God's sake, LEARN how to use Nero Ultra Edition for your burning needs. It has a technology called "BUFFER." you should really read up on that bro.

Worked in other computer in this Gateway Celeron 1.2gh it does not recognize that it has a cd or dvd in it. Running WinXP Pro with sp2, roxio 9 and Cyberlink PowerDVD6

If the pc isn't recognizing the hardware the main reason this happens is that you need to install the proper drivers.

Here's a link: Hope it helps

Good Luck =)

Check the same place you did for upper and lower filters and also remove the upper and lower .bak entries. Then restart the machine. If the problem is still there check the drive connections and check to make sure the drive is still good.
