Question about Toshiba XM-1802B (XM1802B) Plug-In Module 24x CD-ROM Drive

1 Answer

Windows xp compatible?

I recently purchased a refurbished laptop online which runs on Windows XP. The Cd-Rom drive included is the Toshiba cd-rom xm-1802B. The drive has not been reading any discs although troubleshooting tells me that the drive is working fine. I am guessing that this drive is not compatible with Windows XP. Is this correct? If so, is there anything that can be done? Many thanks Noah Ross

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.

How do I backup my files and folders in XP?


Windows XP comes with a backup tool called NTBACKUP (NTBACKUP.MSI from Windows XP CD-ROM). In Windows XP Home Edition, this tool has to be installed manually from the CD-ROM, whereas in Windows XP Professional, this tool is installed by default.
Double-click the Ntbackup.msi file in the following location on the Windows XP Home Edition CD to start a wizard that installs NTBackup: X:\VALUEADD\MSFT\NTBACKUP
X:\ refers to the CD-ROM drive-letter
Note: Usually, OEMs such as Compaq, DELL won't ship the Windows XP CD nor they include the NTBACKUP utility by default. You can download a copy of NTBACKUP.MSI here

Backing up your files using NTBackup Utility:
Click Start, Run and type NTBACKUP
Select Backup tab at the top
In the left pane, scroll to the file/folder which you want to backup and put a checkmark on it.
At the bottom, mention the output filename (the backup output)
Once set, click Start Backup button in the right, and again click Start Backup in resulting dialog

NTBACKUP does not have the ability to write to CDs directly. You will need to save the backup to hard drive, then transfer or burn it to a CD-ROM. Also, while backing up several files, make sure you backup the files in separate sets of each max 650MB (so that it fits on a CD-ROM)
See also FREE Windows Backup Software add-on for NTBackup
Enhanced Windows Backup uses Windows' built in backup engine called Windows Backup (ntbackup.exe) which provides state-of-the-art core backup technology. Enhanced Windows Backup substantially extends the capabilities of NTBackup, providing an effective integrated backup solution.

I have a NEC VY16F/RF-R notebook. I want to install windows xp in my laptop but can't do it. Please give me a instruction to install xp in my laptop.


One can no longer purchase a legal copy of Windows XP from any computer-store -- XP can only be purchased as part of buying a complete computer system from an authorized "system-builder", i.e., any small owner/operator computer-store.

Once you have purchased the XP CD-ROM, insert it into the CD-ROM drive in the NEC computer. The CD should "auto-start" and offer to install Windows XP. If not, then reboot the NEC, and choose to boot from the CD-ROM device, rather than your 'C:' drive.

Toshiba tecra m2v s330


Try borrowing a compatible HDD instead of buying a third one for testing and check if the same error exists. Try also using an external DVD drive to see if your internal CD-ROM is defective. Try also using another Windows XP CD installer. You can also use other OS installation CD to check it. Otherwise, there is something wrong with your lappy's motherboard due to tear and wear, heat, vibration, misuse and shock.

Toshiba DVD ROM SD M1302 driver


If you are using Windows 98, 98SE, ME, 2000, NT or XP, and have an ATAPI/IDE CD/DVD drive, there is no driver needed (see Toshiba statement I have posted below). Under no circumstances, if DVD is properly installed and functional, will you need ANY driver!

If your DVD drive is a SCSI drive, then it may need drivers specific to the SCSI card you have installed (see the specs/manual or website for your card). You may also need the Adaptec SCSI setup, available at this address:

http://www.adaptec.com/worldwide/support/suppbyproduct.jsp?sess=no&language=English+US&cat=%2FTechnology%2FSCSI+Software&fromPage=driverindex

or use this address if you have a LOGIC based SCSI card or device:

http://www.lsilogic.com/

Now, if you meet the criteria for the first paragraph I wrote, and your PC does not load the driver automatically (after a reboot or two) then you have a PHYSICAL or HARDWARE problem. Either the DVD drive is improperly cabled, improperly installed or defective.

Those are all your options. See below, from Toshiba website
good luck
