Question about LG CD Drives
I have a Toshiba Satelitte A205-S5867. I am having major cd rom drive problems.
My cd rom drive is not showing. I can't eject the disc that is in it. I have tried doing the device manager thing and it's not working. I had this problem before but last time I got a fixcd.reg code. I did that and everything was all fine until I shut down my computer this afternoon. I shut it down this morning and when I turned it back on it was still there. I had to shut down my computer for a program I installed and when I loaded it back up it was gone. I unistalled and got rid of the new program but I can't get my cd rom back.
It still says it's there in the device manager and still says it's working but it has NO location and has no information under the volume tab.
I am running with Windows Vista Home Premium.
Tyhere should be a pin hole in cd drive u insert a pin into to allow you to open the drive but what i suggest open the tower disconnect power to drive turn on comp then turn off then reinsert power to it then turn comp on to have it re reconize it or you can go control panel>settings>device manager(hardware manager) in there uninstall the cd drive then restart comp if this no fix find your cd rom drive updated drivers from their website if still no work buy a new one they not expensive

If the boot disk came with your laptop, it should have the necessary drivers on it. You cannot burn drivers on your CD-Rom boot disk because it is not made of the material suitable for laser burning. Even if it were, it would have been "finalized" and the CD writer would not burn it.
First of all, you have to enter the BIOS Setup to see if the drive is detected. If not, then you have a hardware problem, loose connection or bad drive.
Boot to your C: drive and go to the Toshiba link (above) to download the drivers. Then install the CD-ROM via Control Panel>Add Hardware route.
hope this helps
