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.

I have a toshiba laptop my cd dvd burner gets this message when i try to burn error 380381-26-2a031000

Hello Gary, hi, that error means failure of the burner software ROM (corrupted), you have to return the laptop back to the manufacturer for reprogramming, you can also get a surplus DVD drive. Or buy a USB external DVD drive, this is a better alternative.

Itunes knocks out DVD/CD driver whenever I update Itunes.

Solution 1

Check with your manufacturer to see if there are updated software drivers for your optical drive. For more information about updating the firmware of your CD or DVD drive,

Solution 2

Launch Windows Explorer.
Navigate to C:\Windows\system32\drivers\.
Check to see if either of the following 2 files are present. These files from a third-party software vendor are not supported by Windows Vista and can cause driver conflicts with optical drives:
If either of the files in Step 3 are present, move them out of the system32 folder. You should keep these files stored somewhere on your hard drive, as some of your older peripherals may require them. If you find that they are required in the future to use a device, you may move them back into the system32 folder temporarily.
Reboot Windows Vista.

Solution 3

Quit iTunes.
Manually remove the GEAR driver software using the steps found here.
Remove any stand alone GEAR software installers from the Programs and Features control panel, if present.
Install the updated GEAR driver.

Toshiba laptop won't burn cd from itunes

I had the same promblem. What you should do is make a serperate file on you desktop and drag all of your music that you burn or download to that folder first. Drag it to Itunes after that. Now, you only have to drag the songs to Itunes if you want them on there for you iPod. Take the songs from the folder, and drag them to windows media players burn list. Insert a blank disc and you should be good. Keep in mind that you can only do this if you put downloaded or burned music to the created folder first. If you take it to Itunes first, you will have to re-download or re-burn your music again.
Hopefully this helped you guys.
