DVD drive problem

I have two of these Toshiba laptops. One has an error with the DVD drive (Matshita DVD RAM UJ820S) and shows as an exclamation mark in device manager. I have tried reloading the drivers. SO..I swapped the drives from each laptop and guess what...the faulty drive works in the other machine and the good drive does the faulty thing in the original laptop. So I guess the DVD drive is ok but I cant get either to work in the original laptop. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. thanks

I have a Toshiba Satellite P35-S609. I upgraded Windows XP Pro to Vista Ultimate. Three devices stopped working in full capacity: 1. The ATI Mobilityy Radeon 9100 IGP video driver was not found -...

Not all PC are capable of running Vista at its full potential. This is not a Microsoft fault, but equipment manufaturers not supplying the drivers for older hardware. I recommend you to run the Vista Upgrade Advisor from the Microsoft website, to see if your laptop can run (that flavor of) Vista.

Matshita dvd-ram uj-831s driver missing

please go in bios check the drive is shown there.
if shown and not showing in my computer then might be the os issue.
Go to the device manager and check any yellow question mark on the dvd/cd rom drive and if not then try following
Right click and uninstall the drive.
Go to IDE ATAPI controllers in device manager and uninstall secondary controllers or ata channel 1 from there.
Go to run option>type regedit and enter then>H_KEY_LOCAL_MACHINE>SYSTEM>CURRENT CONTROL SET>CONTROL>CLASS>first entry starting with the 4D36 and single click on entry>on the right hand pane check for any lower or upper filter and if there delete both.

Restart the system twice then check if then also not working might be OS or drive faulty

Matshita DVD-Ram UJ-810 I/O Device Error with most DVDs Cds

You can do that, but you're really just extending the headache. Matshita is **** (look closely at the sequence of letters in the name) :)

Buy a brand-name USB external DVD burner and go on about your life.

Since the drive functions on a bios level, try a bios update or flash. This should bring it back.
