Windows 8 is not compatible with my cd/dvd player. Where can I find a compatible driver?

I upgraded to Windows 8 from Windows 7 on a Toshiba Satellite L555 and now my cd/dvd does not work. The computer doesn't recognize the drive. Looking in the hardware section, it is a HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GT20N - Driver 6.2.9200.1634. Where can I find a compatible driver? My husband upgraded to Windows 8 from Vista and he is having the same problem. He has a Compac Presario C700. HELP.

Hi, the error code that you have is a known issue from Microsoft that needs a registry tweaks. Error code means "Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (code 39)". You can click on this link for your reference http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461/en-us

To resolve this problem, remove the affected filter drivers. To do this, follow these steps:1. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
3. In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
4. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
5. In the right pane, right-click LowerFilters, and then click Delete.
6. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the LowerFilters registry entry.
7. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.

This will surely help you resolve your issue. Good Luck!!!

Thanks

backup whatever information you have and run the system recovery through the disks you received when you purchased the computer. If you can perform the recovery then you know the hardware is fine and that you were experiencing software corruption.

Upgrade CD/DVD ROM to CD-RW/DVD ROM


I just replaced my original CD/DVD ROM with a Toshiba SD-R2512 CD-RW/DVD ROM in my 1805-S253 running Windows ME. I used "Roxio Easy CD Creator" for writing to CD's. Everything was "plug'n'play" except the bezel that came with the new drive had to be swapped out. Windows ME recognized the new drive immediately and I didn't have to load any new drivers. This upgrade will probably work on other 1800 or 1805 Satellite series machines.

How to get Drivers Updates after Windows 8 Upgrade for Toshiba C660D Laptop Please


This is a common problem with a new OS upgrade. Try to use Win 7 drivers. Modtify the drivers to be compatible with Win 8. Most times this will work, not always. Try here for Win 7 32 or 64 bit drivers: http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=UK&mode=allMachines&action=search&teddProduct=6017&selShortMod=1041

My satellite p305-s8825 inbuilt microphone is not working after I upgraded from Windows Vista to Windows 7


Windows 7 does not have a compatable driver, go into the toshiba site for download drivers, they may have a driver for windows 7, if no! contact customer and technical support to see if they can give a option.

Toshiba satellite a300 wont load dvd but will play cd. Was working fine yesterday (dvds work ok on my other laptop)


Try to upgrade the driver for the DVD player. This is done in the Device Manager.
Upgrade or reinstall the software used to play the DVD.
One of the best players for DVD and all sorts of other media is the VLC player - a free download.

Go into Device Manager and remove the optical drive from the list. Restart the computer. It should detect "New Hardware", identify it and install the correct driver.

What's going on: apparently there was a glitch or bug in the Windows 7 upgrade. The DVD drive is misidentified in the Registry as a CD-ROM drive, but it kept the old driver. Of course, Windows 7 thinks a DVD driver is incorrect, so it puts a yellow warning flag on it in Device Manager. It also refuses to acknowledge any disc in there except a CD (stupid computer!). So we need to get the incorrect info out of the registry before Windows will run the optical drive properly.

If Windows 7 gets stubborn about it, turn off the computer, look for the optical drive retaining screw, and take it out and physically remove the optical drive. Now, you should be able to remove the optical drive from the Registry. Restart the computer, double check that the optical drive is gone from Device Manager, then shut it down again. Put the optical drive back in the computer and turn it on. This time it should get everything right.
