Question about Toshiba Satellite A135 Notebook

1 Answer

Dvd drive doesnt recognize that a disc is in

I cannot burn or play any disc in my dvd/cd drive. When I put a disc in it just spins and the computer doesnt acknowledge that it is even there. I have a toshiba satelitte A135-S2306 with a pioneer dvd rw drive. I tried to download a new driver and it tells me its working so I dont need one. I am at a loss and our local shop where I purchased it sucks!! I cant seem to find any drives that fit it online either.

My drive will not burn dvd-r anymore but it used to, it burns cd-r and reads discs no problem, but now when i try to burn the disc spins but makes a strange knocking noise.


sometime it has more to do with the driver software than it does with the unit itself.
Try uninstalling the writer software, restart the computer, reinstall the software, restart the computer, and attempt burn again. Software occaisionally gets confused and needs to be "rebooted" from time to time. Hope this helps.

The disc drive wont burn a dvd or even play cd or


was it preinstalled or you installed it yourself ? either way sorry to tell you but drives do give out, and some times the cd-rom and dvd - rom drives the hardest to fix, but you can research http://www.geeks.com/ and find yourself a new one for around 40-50 dollars...

another thing, if you installed this drive yourself, you can pull it out and check the jumper and make sure its either cable select or slave or master, which ever you want to set it up as....

i usally put all my drives in cable select so the computer will select which drives goes first and things are juts alot easier that way....

CD drive doesnt recognize a dvd


Sorry to say, but a CD drive cannot read DVD's. You need a DVD reader. Thus, the CD drive will not recognize DVD media and tell you no valid disc is in the drive. I recommend buying a DVD RW (reader/writer), as they are inexpensive and enable you to burn DVDs as well as read them.

My Lite On DVDRW will not recognize any audio cd's...


Hi PhxROcker,

In these drives there are two lasers and two pick-up sensors. Normally in a combined head. One set is used for the DVD and the other is used for the CD. From you description it sounds like the optical sensor for the CD laser has expired! When you place a CD into the drive a small amount of information is read by the drive that identifies the disc type, manufacturer, it's status, capacity etc. If the drive cannot read this then it thinks nothing is present.

If you insert a disc does the LED on the front the the unit flash a few times while it spins the disc. Does it do this repeatedly? If it fails to read the disc does the LED stop blinking and the drive no longer spins the disc? If this is the case then your drive may indeed be faulty.

Sorry I could not be of any further assistance.

Regards,

Spare head 2.
