    Hi there Kram26... How do I reprogram it? I just went to the device manager and it says it is working properly. I checked for updates and it was all updated. I tried the advice found here but I have VISTA on this so I could not follow it step by step.

    Anything further? Just to be sure. The problem started when I tried to format a disc to burn a file.... it took forwever and then said it could not format the disc. Then, ANY disc I put in just spins and says there is no disc there, when there is. Either new blank ones or ones with info on it that work in other machines.

    I am stumped. The machine is within warranty but I need it daily as a grad student...

Hi good day,

in this situation you need to reformat and reprogram your laptop just to make sure all drivers are working.

    if your program is locked to windows VIsta it is difficult just to reprogram by yourself because it is not like a windows hp that you can follow or reformat easily.

    i prefer to advice you that go to the nearest computer shop and let them reprogram to prevent any hardwars problem may it occur..

My DVD burner stopped working...but will still copy cd


Please try to clean your DVD Disk Drive using a CD or DVD Disk Cleaner to clean the laser lens of the DVD Disk Drive like dust, dirt and other small particles that causes the lens hard to read or eventually not read the laser lens. IF you don't have a Disk cleaner you can find it in any computer shop or video shop in your place.

Toshiba A135-S2276 with a Hitachi GSA-T10N DVD/CD Drive.

The laser went to it´s maker. Problably you will have to replace the drive, but before you do that, try cleaning VERY GENTLY the laser lens with a 80/20 solution of water and alcohol. Close the drive and let it dry for a few minutes before inserting a disc. Sometimes it works.
