    TEAC DW-224E: I have the same problem - drive started to read intermittently and then stopped reading at all. Now does not recognise any CD DVD placed in it. No significant installations before the problem was encountered. Computer does not register any problem in the Hardware Manager. Have tried deleting and re-installing drivers. Doesnt appear to be any updated drivers available. Mine is in a Toshiba Satellite 1130-Z25. I have not found anyone who has posted a solution to this. Seems like the drive has just packed up?

    I may have the same problem. My drive reads CDs just fine but the DVD player no longer reads. It recognizes the DVD and lights the LED on the TEAC drive and you can hear it spin up and the optical lense move a few times, but it will not read my DVD.



    When I research the drivers with utilities I am told everything is up to date and working properly. Odd.

Here's the newest driver for your burner. Go to Control Panel, then Device Manager, then click on the + symbol next to disk drives, and double click on the TEAC device. Click the Driver tab and press Update Driver, then choose the 'Let me find the driver' option, and navigate to the folder where you unzipped the file to. Double click and Install. Reboot.

For burning, I would recommend Nero, Alcohol 120% or ImgBurn.

Good luck and Season's Greetings!

Problem is that my DVD combo TEAC-DW-224E-A reads cds but not DVD kindly help


Download VLC (google it) for free, see if that plays the dvd. Most likely your player has an issue, VLC plays ANYTHING (pretty much!) without issue.

If that doesnt work then you'll have a problem with the actual drive.

Teac 32 inch LCD dvd combo, dvd is coming up with message "no signal" any ideas?


Usually means just that.
The input source you have switched to has no signal.
Does it have built in freeview? just plugging an ariel off the roof no longer works without a digital receiver.

Cdrom


Try this but be careful to find the exact key as not to do damage!

Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click)

Find "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" (and "UpperFilters.bak" "LowerFilters.bak", if they exist) value under the following key in the registry, and delete it:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Quit Registry Editor.

Reboot.

NOTE: You might need to reinstall any CD recording apps you have, if they start to not work completely, after doing this.
