Try using a known-good (for instance, a movie you just watched on your TV). If it doesn't read that disc, make certain you have seated the disk in the drive properly (Laptop drives have a *CLICK!* when you have seated the disc properly). If that doesn't work- if the laptop is in warranty, get it fixed. If not, use an external drive to fulfill your media needs
first check wheather other cd are reading or not if not then ur cd romm is not working properly check the drivers of ur laptop and after insertng cd select the option on cd drive select open/expore
Try to use another freeware burnprogram like burnatonce to create an other CD, just to check if the Combo-drive is writing properly.
If you don't get any error messages like the ones from Toshiba program, then the problem is the toshiba software.
If other burn programs find difficulties in accessing CDs or DVD-Rs then the drive itself giving you a hard time and might seek for replacement.
You may find the toshiba exchange parts too expensive and the internal drive is still reading disks properly, then think about an external dvd-rw drive, but make sure to buy a highspeed USB one (or even firewire, if the laptop has the port), else it will run rather slowly.
Go to Device Manager by "right-clicking" on "MY COMPUTER", and choose "MANAGE". Once the new window comes up, look for "DEVICE MANAGER" on the left hand side of the screen and click on it.
On the right hand side of the screen you will see a long list of items, look for DVD/CD DRIVES and click on the + sign next to it to expand that list. Now look for your DVD/CD drive and right click on it and choose uninstall. Then restart your computer, when it restarts it will say "FOUND NEW HARDWARE, ATTEMPTING TO INSTALL" wait for it to finish and tell you that it's ready and try to insert a disc. If it does not read it, the Drive might be bad so you might have to replace it...Good Luck!
It's sadly possible your hard drive is bad or corrupted. Can you boot from a CD? Or a floppy disk? You could run diagnostics on it from a CD. If you don't have one available check the HP website for support.
Type of media settings might be the issue but making a change for standard CD/DVD recording (it affects reading too) Issue can be resolved. Right click on the CD/DVD drive (Usually D drive ) click on properties and select and choose the recording option. Click the enable CD recording for this drive option
Click on apply and OK. Try again. You may try after reboot the computer. If issue persist please post so we can think about some alternate solutions.
