    Do you have it properly connected? If this is a serial ATA then you would not connect a ribbon cable. Just the ATA power and data cables. Hope this helps.

Problem occurs when vista registry entry is corrupted. The steps to resolve this are as follows:

  • run regedit.exe
  • navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
  • Depending on your particular setup, you may have multiple entries for {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. If this is the case, find the one that says DVD/CD-ROM drives (under default)
  • Once you have found the appropriate key, you will see an entry that says UpperFilters.
  • Delete this key and then restart
  • (NB: Do not delete any other 'UpperFilters' key that is not in the category of DVD/CD-ROM drives, otherwise you may get the BSOD.)
This solution fixed my problem.

    Straightforward and clearly noted first line DVD CD ROM on the relevant registry entry. Thanks.

  • am1407 Dec 04, 2010

    Bravo mkpelletier.
    Il est vrai que le "LOWER filters" doit être également enlevé de la base de registre comme il est dit par "Leila Mosh".
    Information parfaitement décrite, sans aucune erreur, ce qui permet à monsieur tout le monde de faire cette manipulation.
    A noter:, mon lecteur externe USB est également réapparu dès que les 2 clefs ont été supprimées.
    Bravo encore et merci beaucoup.

Mkpelletier--great advice!! I called toshiba though, because it still did not fix the problem. Found out from Toshiba that not only do you need to delete the upperfilters but the LOWER filters as well. Otherwise, these instructions are perfect!!

great job mkpelletier!!

Do what mkpelletier said with the registry values except delete not only the upperfilter registry but the lowerfilter one as well and reboot, it should work

I don't have a solution, but I HAVE TO SAY THANK YOU TO mpelletier. I've had this problem with this computer for SIX MONTHS. I even bought a new laptop last month out of disgust, but thought I'd give it one more try today. His solution worked perfectly!! Thanks mpelletier - you should have a website of your own, and when you do, come back here and let us know!!!!!!!!!

you need to do
1) confirm the dvd driver works ok at other same laptop or find a usb dvd drive adapter to check it works well or not, the dvd driver damage if not
2) check the dvd interface pins (no damage or disconnection) on the motherboard, there is hardware problem that you can not see or heard any lights and driving sounds when the power on
