DVD/CD Drive Does not recognise copied CDs

I have a Toshiba A60-155 Equium Lap top. Model number = PSA67E.

The DVD/CD drive does not recognise my copied CDs. These are my photo, document and music saved files. However it does recognise commercially produced DVDs and CDs.

I have reentlty restored the machine but this has not solved the problem

Can you help

Kind regards
Andy

Dvd rw wont play dvds or cds my lapyop is a toshiba equium l40


Update the drivers and check, also try and use a lens cleaner on the drive and if the DVD does not read then the drive is faulty and must be replaced.Finally you can check this on another PC to confirm.

My toshiba equium a200-1v0 will not burn to dvd


Does it read CD/DVDs fine? If so, the laser head for writing data to the discs may be defective. Also, keep in mind that when CD/DVD drivers start to fail, they may be able to read/write to CDs and not to DVDs or vice versa.

Otherwise, go to "Start" and right-click on "Computer" and select "Properties". Then, on the top left corner of the window, go to "Device Manager". Expand "Disk drives" and make sure there is no exclamation mark or question mark on the CD/DVD device. If there is, then either the driver software is missing/corrupt or the drive is defective. If no CD/DVD drive is listed, then it is not being recognized as being installed then check all of the cables to make sure nothing's loose, otherwise it is most likely defective.

Loptop wornt read cd or dvds


Hello,

if your cd wont read disk then maybe it got damage. you can change the drive let it repair.

Other method installing windows is to seek USB port DVD drive and then connect it boot the system using this external DVD drive.

method 2: You have to remove you have drive and attached to other pc using drive enclosure and then copy the installation disk to the drive. then boot you system if still boot and if not not then you have to boot using DOS base system. You can search documentation installaling XP using DOS command. you can search it in google.com.

may this help,

My new DVD player will play all CDs except the ones I burned on my laptop. Why is this and how can I get the DVD player to play those CDs? when I record a dvd on my lap top it will allow me to play it...


Hi,
it,s one of 2 things.
1:) your recording MP3 to CD. Only recognised on a PC, or MP3 Player. The standard CD Format Is WAV.
If you burn with Nero. you should have a tickbox Which Says ( Normalise all audio Files )
2:) the disk is not finalised. Closed having written the T.O.C Table-Of Contents. this is to allow the reader viewing it, what is actually written on the disk.

Cd dvd drive only recognises cds


Just check if the region code has not been locked. If you cannot play DVD's at all, first clean the lens, then install a good DVD player like cyberlink etc and then try. If the issue is related to Data DVD's as well, change the media that you are using, eg change the media type to Samsung, Sony and check. Lemme know if it works.
