Cd-R/W driver works no more for Toshiba a135

Click start control panel administration tools computer management device manager scroll down cd-dvd rom drives you might see a yellow question /exclamation mark ? ! or a red X right click to update driver

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

if this does not fix the problem it might be a registry problem if you cant see your disk drive in windows explorer
Close all open programs

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders







This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Upper Filters

Lower Filters

Upper Filters.bak

Lower Filters.bak

If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete

After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

hope it helps


you might have to uninstall then restart your computer then reinstall your DVD/CD then reinstall the driver for this device

hope this helps

Disk drive does not work. Possibly need a driver. What kind of removable drive? Rewriteable DVD written on face. Toshiba Satellite A15 series bought quite a few years back. Windows XP home.

I would go into the BIOS and make sure that the correct drive and drive type is there. Up on the boot sequence, hit F2 and go into the BIOS.

Also, go to the toshiba website download the drivers you need. I do it all the time.

Were to get a toshiba cd-rom

I searched for Toshiba CD-ROM drives and found only support references to products made about ten years ago. Toshiba shows only hard drives on its storage device products page. I could be wrong, but it appears Toshiba is not in the CD/ROM drive business anymore.

Is there a particular reason you must have a Toshiba brand CD-ROM? Any CD-ROM with the same interface type should work, if you can find a driver compatible with your operating system. If I recall correctly, Toshiba uses Sony optical drives in its laptop computers. (So far as I know Toshiba always used standard interfaces, so a proprietary drive should not be an issue.) The prices on CD-R and CD- R/W devices have come down considerably in the last several years, so you may want to consider one of those if your computer is fast enough to support reliable disc burning operations (800 MHz or better should suffice).

Speakers and mic input not working anymore

Have you done a windows update recently? It could have been caused by a updated driver that your computer doesn't really like.

Or is your output device set to digital instead to analog?

Vista no longer recognizes my CD-ROM

"...manual driver update..." ... from the device's included driver disk? Or from a web-source? If web-source, how long ago and from where?
" found the hardware but was still unable to load driver software..." ... So Windows does recognize it then? Unable to load what .. the driver(s)?
"...Vista just isn't recognizeing my CD-ROM at all" ... ??? If I understand correctly, Windows "device manager" recognizes when its deleted, then refreshed, but Vista doesn't recognize it? By this do you mean it's icon does not show up in "My Computer"?

Lot of questions I know, but it's necessary to define the trouble in order to know which direction to go next.


Here are a couple of very helpful and comprehensive software diagnostic tools for you to download at They are both FREEWARE and the same tools licensed to Nero for inclusion in their software products.

Installation: Simply extract/unzip the file to any chosen directory and run the executable (*.EXE).

1. "Nero DiscSpeed". Thoroughly tests speed and performance of your optical drives(s).
- Refer to the program's Help for guidance.
- User guide also available at
- Here's a quick shorthand:
a. File > Options > Standard Tests > Choose which tests you wish to run (if unsure, use the default settings), then "OK"
b. Click "Start"

2. "Nero DriveSpeed". Adjust/control your drive's spin /up/down times and noise levels.


You need to get the latest and best driver package, then re-install. If you can provide the make/model/series of the drive, I can provide you with a reliable source to download.

Please report back, and in all likelyhood we'll get you some joy.

Reinstallation with recovery disk

I've had myself almost same problem in my 5200-801, but with reading DVD's.
It was allready the second dvd/cd drive replaced by Toshiba.
Then I replaced the DVD/CD drive myself because I ran out of guarantee, with one bought from the internet and much cheaper than the original one. A multi drive which even do the lightscribe job and that one works very well.
