Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

3 Answers

Disk drive A couple of days ago when i put in a cd to rip to my computer the sound from the cd being played was a bit slow like the disk drive wasn't fast enough to read the disk, but once i had ripped the songs from the cd they played perfectly because they were on the hard drive. I tried just playing a cd again without ripping it and i still had the same problem, the speakers would make a slight crackling sound and the sound would slow down and skip every one or two seconds. i then put a dvd in and the same problem occurred and this time with the picture. ( this is with windows media player and intervideo windvd.) My computer also has a separate dvd program which can be started without starting up windows and i put a dvd on there and it worked perfectly.

Re: Disk drive

There may have been a Windows update that corruptdated one of your Windows Media Player files. Check for spyware or a virus. WMP is usually an avenue for thay sort of thing. Check for updats to all software involved. You may also consider doing a firmware update if they have one. Good Luck, Tim

D:/ is not accessible. Disk structure is corrupted and unreadable.

You may have simply 'cooked' the DVD drive and the motherboard on it fried. Replacement drives start at 20 quid for a desktop and 30 quid for a laptop. It's held in with 1 screw if a laptop. Remove the drive, get the model number and replace it.

If you go to My Computer and then select the disk will you see the files or does it just hang forever? If you see no files or it just hangs then the device may have a hardware error or there are other softwares trying to use this port. I have a registry tweak that may work. Email me after you check the other items.

Disc consistency, dvd player not recognizing discs

Your cd/dvd drive is most likely failed. Possible controller problem but most likely dvd drive. Replacement is fairly straight forward but replacement may be a bit costly. I would search for sources for used / refurbished drives; contact me if I can assist you further.
