DVD RW not working on Toshiba Laptop

I inherited a Toshiba Satellite laptop recently with a DVD RW drive that worked fine for a while. Now it does not even recognize that there is a drive for my discs to play. I'm computer clueless so please help! I don't know if it matters but it has Windows XP and I think is less than 3-4 years old.
Thank you!!

I can't print label to cd dvd from my dvd unit


Before you can use a lightscribe facility, you must have 3 things, which are, A DVD Drive thats has a lightscribe capability/function, a lightscribe software, and a lightscribe compatible CDDisk.
From what I can see, your drive is not capable, or does not support lightscribe functionality. I tried to check everything about your system model and I discovered that the capability of your DVD Drive is this :
  • Writable DVD formats: DVD-R (6x, DL [double layer]), DVD-RW (6x), DVD+R (DL [double layer]), DVD-RAM
  • CD formats: CD-R (24x), CD-RW (16x)
Which means your DVD Drive does not support Lightscribe facilities.
You can also check everything about your system from this link :

Hope this helps you out.
Goodluck!

My Toshiba Satellite A30 laptop keeps switching off when charging. It works fine when on the battery but seems to overheat when I use it whilst charging the battery. Can you help ?


I would suggest that you try it with another AC adapter first, because it seems the adapter is faulty and therefore supplying more current into the laptop than necessary.
If it works perfectly with another AC Adapter, then you might just have to change your AC Adapter.
Hope it helps.
Goodluck!

Can't change the boot sequencefrom bois..for Toshiba Laptop.


If you successfully selected CD ROM, try saving the changes you made and then ensure that you have a bootable CD in the drive when you power on the system.

CD RW/ DVD RW Drive Will not read and Burned discs or burn to blank discs


I suggest a firmware update from Toshiba. If this does not help then your laser in the drive is no longer capable of this task. Also just thought about it but make sure the media that you are burning to is the same as the drive + or - R's

Windows xp compatible?


It's a bog standard CDROM drive, there's nothing about it that's not XP compatible. Check and make sure the connectors are seated properly. Check the firmware, there is an update, try http://support.us.dell.com/support/downloads/download.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&releaseid=R20018&formatcnt=1&libid=0&fileid=19847 This drive is reported to have CD-RW issues, but everything else should be fine (I think the firmware fixes that) If your still having problems, its' probably a bad drive.
