Have you tried other discs? Does it read CD or recognize blank discs? Have you tried a bootable disc to see if it reads prior to Windows loading?

If the drive doesn't appear in My Computer this is a possible fix:

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:


Quit Registry Editor.


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

I have a satellite A205-S5805 laptop & need to restore to factory defauts. when installng with my cds I get an error reading on second disk error code is10-FC12-045D

Try rebuffing the disk, Staples sells these CD/DVD salvaging devices. they are less than $20. Otherwise try installing the Windows OS from a bootable CD and loading the drivers manually if the disk you have is bad.

Toshiba satellite A205 DVD player partially Inop

The disk drive could be going bad, or the lens may be dirty.

Try getting a dvd lens cleaning kit if you don't already have one, and run that. Make sure to read all the instructions that come with the cleaning kit.
