Question about Toshiba Satellite P105-S9722 Notebook
When I attempt to open data or audio files on the DVD RW Drive (D:) through the Windows Explorer, the computer replys with Insert a Disc, however it will access a a movie dvd through Windows Explorer and through Toshiba HD DVD Launcher and play a dvd from the same drive.
Why can I play a movie but not access files?
Computer is a Toshiba Satellite: P205
DVD RW Drive (D:) Properties: All Disk Drives: Toshiba MK1237GSX ATA Device and Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-K17LF ATA Device

Locate the CD-ROM drive door on your computer. The location of the drive depends on the computer you have. You will see a small rectangular button on the door.
Press the button and the drive door should slightly open. Lightly pull the door open and insert the blank DVD-RW disc into the drive. Close the drive door and wait for the computer to detect the disc, which will trigger an "Auto Play" screen to flash on the desktop's taskbar. The screen will prompt you to choose an action you'd like to perform for the disc.
Click "Burn Files to Disc: Using Windows." This link will redirect you to your Windows Explorer disc burning application. You will be prompted to enter a title for the disc.
Enter the title of your choice in the form and click "Next." The last screen will ask if you'd like to continue with the formatting; click "Yes" to continue. The "Elapsed Time" screen will appear indicating how long the process will take. When the process is complete, another screen will automatically appear indicating the formatting process is complete.
Click "OK" to continue. Your Windows Explorer panel will appear. In the upper-left corner of the panel, you will see a horizontal menu bar with different options for the disc. Now your disc is formatted and you can begin burning files to your disc.
Have a nice Day,
