Question about Dell Inspiron E1505 Notebook

1 Answer

Cd/dvd optical tsst drive is inactive

Ok, first I burn movies all the time and never had this problem. but about three days ago the whole drive doesn't show up in my computer. any of my burn programs that I try to use, it starts the process and right before it loads up it gives a message that no burner available. I went into the control panel and acessed the device manager and the drive has an yellow exclamation point ! I click on it and it says " Windows successfully loaded the device driver for this hardware but cannot find the hardware device. (Code 41)" I tryed to troubleshoot it but no good advice from dell or windows. and I did a windows update for the drivers and still nothing ?!! should I get a new burner/optical drive or can this be fixed ???!

Always backup your registry before editing and use care to find exact key!
Start Registry Editor (Start, Run and type in regedit then click)

Find "UpperFilters" and "LowerFilters" (and "UpperFilters.bak" "LowerFilters.bak", if they exist) value under the following key in the registry, and delete it:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Quit Registry Editor.

Reboot.

NOTE: You might need to reinstall any CD recording apps you have, if they start to not work completely, after doing this.

Can you supply the unlock code for my Toshiba Laptop DVD/CD Writer TSST Corp DCDVDW TS-L633F


Go to Device Manager. Assuming you have Windows XP or Vista or 7:

Right click on Computer or My Computer. Click on Properties.

In Vista/7, click on Device Manager on the left side. In XP, if I remember correctly, you click on the Hardware tab and you will see Device Manager as a button.

Under DVD/CD-ROM drives, find your optical drive. Right click on it and click Properties.

Go to the DVD Region Tab. Find your region, select, then click OK. Keep in mind that the number of times you can do this is LIMITED.

ERROR 2131 WHEN ON ITUNES


Hello,

According to the support page the firmware update fixes the iTunes
issue with “The attempt to burn a disc failed. An unknown error
occurred (2131) when you tried to burn playlist to disc for blank CD-R
media. the region code error for DVD movie playback.
NOTE Please DO NOT USE THIS UPDATE FOR A TOSHIBA LAPTOP the computers
may have the same optical drive but the firmware updates may not be
identical and flashing with the wrong firmware may damage your drive”.
This isn’t just the Toshiba Equium A200 laptop getting an error of
2131, the other notebook’s manufacturers also established the source
of the problem and they have to provide a firmware update to download
and fix this problem. The best thing you can do is wait until Toshiba
provide a firmware update specifically for the TSST TS-L632H version
TO01 drive in your laptop.

Please let me know if you have any fuhrer questions or concerns.

Thanks.

Can I burn dvd movies with dvd r disk on my TSST corp CDW/DVD TS-H492A


You can only burn DVD's with a dvd-rw.
A CD-RW DVD will only play a dvd and write CD's

Cannot burn to ts h492a with dvd-r then play on


Hi, It seems that you are not going through the right procedure of burning DVD movies. The first step before burning is to convert the movie file format to DVD format. I recommend "Format Factory" to convert as it is an open source free software and works wonderful. Once the conversion is over, you can now go ahead and burn it with good DVD burning software Burn4free.
Cheers!
