    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!

Completely dead, will not even try to read the disk. Device Manager says its working correctly, and the driver is correct.


Hello.

First try a disk drive cleaner.

If still a problem, the only solution is to replace the drive.

Hope this helps.

Teac DW-224E-c - cannot burn DVD's


The answer is what you profess. The drive can burn CD's, read CD's and also read DVD's. Everytime I try and burn a DVD I have an unrecognized drive and the properties always show no disk: The drive burns CD's ie;music, but cannot burn DVD it can only read DVD like you say!

toshiba terca m1 can the teac dw-224e-36 drive be replaced with a dvd burner drive? thanks, brent hindsbwh@yahoo.com 732-754-3371 The problem with replacing the original CD drive in these notebook computers appears to be a serious "large-scale" problem. When you replace the CD drive with another Manufacturer and/or Model the Recovery CD and associated software can't find the exact drive ID its looking for. It then refuses to proceed with the software reload to bring itself online and function properly. This is called "forcing the customer to come to the original manufacturer only" policy and paying whatever they demand to get a replacement that will work properly with all the original system CD's. I'm sure the Boot EPROM has the DW-224E-36 ID burnt into it to ensure it doesn't load alternate drivers. We all hate to pay $150 - $190 for a drive we know cost approximately $20 - $30 to make. When you make 5,000 to 15,000 of anything every week, the actual manufacturing cost gets incredibly low. I've been chasing an answer to this problem for a Toshiba Satellite A25-S207 system needing a functional DW-224E-36 DVD ROM CD R/W drive because it won't read the Recovery DVD to load the software onto a new HardDrive. The Notebook is literally "like new" but the HardDrive and CDROM drive are disfunctional due to overheating. The cooling airway pathway was totally blocked with "lint" and the owner never thought to have a professional look at the system. I wish us all "good luck" finding a seller that is satisfied making a "reasonable profit". All I've thus far been able to find are sellers wanting to triple, quadruple or 6X their money on anyone that relies solely on a notebook computer. Toshiba wants $188 for a replacement. Then add state tax and shipping to pay over $200. This is outrageous for this product and the PC owner will probably have to throw the unit away as she can't afford it. $100 for a new hard drive, $200 for a new CD drive, $100 for a new battery and $100 for 1GB of new RAM (remove 2ea-256MB small DIMM's and replace with 2ea 512MB small DIMM's). This doesn't have any labor included with the costs. I'm doing the repair as a friend to the owner's family. $400 is minimum to cover the "need", the extra RAM is a "want". The real loser's are the PC owner and the world we live in because we have another 10-14 lbs of "electronic & plastic scrap" to bury in a hole somehere and she has to figure out how to fulfill her computer needs affordably. Goood Luck to all. JRCjr 12-28-08 (I would appreciate whomever owns this website to not make my email address viewable by the general public). Should someone have a better answer I am open to suggestions. astute.solutions@net-star.net
