You have done all thing I would have suggested and if the BIOS does not detect this DVD drive then it is faulty and needs to be replaced.
If the BIOS detects the DVD drive then the DVD driver needs re-installing.
You can download the DVD and device drivers for your model laptop from the Toshiba WEB site from their download page. Make sure you enter the model of your laptop so you can get the correct drivers. Please click on this link: - http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/home.jsp

How to install windows XP on my toshiba satellite A40, my bios not detect others device like my external dvd portable, cause everytime i instal with cd rom on my notebook always show 'blue screen error' or...


I'm not familiar with that specific model, but if you install from cd and get blue screens and the hard drive is not always detected, this means the hard drive is failing. You will have the same problem if you do manage to get the external cd/dvd drive to detect.

If the A40 is new enough to use a SATA hard drive (I do not think it is) then you need an XP cd with SP2 or 3 included or you will get bluescreens. But the fact that you can't get other OS to install make this an unlikely suspect.

The cd drive could be bad and not copying all the files correctly, but since you say the hard drive sometimes will not detect makes it almost certain that the hdd is the main issue.

Dvd rw is not detected in windows xp in my toshiba a75 laptop


Hi,

Kindly follow the following steps..

1. Go to Device manager. Click on the + sign beside IDE drives. Right click on the dvd drive and select uninstall. Restart the computer. It should get installed automatically as it is a generic driver.

2. Go to run > type regedit > go to the following key
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\
Select the folder that says ( 4D36E965.....
on the right hand side delete the file that says "Upper filters" and "Lower filters"

3. Go to device manager > click on the + sign beside IDE ATA ATAPI Controllers > right click on Secondary IDE channel and select uninstall. Do the same with Primary IDE channel. Restart the computer.

4. Reseat the dvd drive.

Hops this helps..
Regards,
Anup
