Re: the Busy Light is always on

I have a couple of questions: 1) dow does this drive connect (USB)? and 2) Did it ever work? Most probably if the answer to question 1 yes and 2 no, I would say the drive is defective and return it.

I recently purchased a Toshiba PA3761U-1DV2 external multi burner/reader. I have a Toshiba Satelite Vista SP2 32 bit. The included software won't install. However the drivers did install and

It usually better using the burn software that came with the multi burner because it will be compatible with your multi buner. Windows media player burning cannot be compatible to all the burners on the market.

CD player is always reading and never acknowledges the cd

Try cleaning the cd first before putting it in the player. If that doesnt work, then the cd may be bad disc. if it has alot of scratches on it, then it will not work. if its not turning like it used to when the door opens, i dont think its a problem. its not going to move much if the door is opened.

Microsoft updates may not have the driver you are looking when it is searching for drivers. When you are in the device manager make a quick note to the name of the device and go to
and see if you can match the device to the driver for your pc. If you are able to find the correct driver and install it and still receive the same results then the drive itself may have a problem.

I have ASA80, the Cd/ Dvd driver, when I copy cd music it skips & also it doesn't respond all the time when I try to open up the ttray.

About the opening up the tray there will always be a pause because it is still busy and you have to give it a bit of time it isn't instant. The skipping is either caused by vibration the cd or the laser being dirty, Take it to a shop and have it cleaned ,that should take care of it and have them check the button(open) for good function while you are at it.
