Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S2652 Notebook

Cd/dvd burner won't burn 50% of the time

Hi i have a toshiba satellite m45-a2652. i was told that i need a firmware update so that my burner will operate correctly. sometimes it will burn a disc if i use the 4x speed, other times it will burn about half, then say that the burn process failed. i have just attempted 3 different downloads, each saying that it would work for my particular laptop. after each download, however, each said that it was not compatible with my computer.
please help.

Have found this problem myself, and found this solution.
Some burners are fussy and won't burn properly on some brands or cheap discs. Suggest to try different brands until you find one that doesn't give you any trouble.

I recently purchased a Toshiba PA3761U-1DV2 external multi burner/reader. I have a Toshiba Satelite Vista SP2 32 bit. The included software won't install. However the drivers did install and


It usually better using the burn software that came with the multi burner because it will be compatible with your multi buner. Windows media player burning cannot be compatible to all the burners on the market.

Toshiba satellite M45-S169 won't boot ubuntu from DVD


Your really pushing the lower minimum requirement limits if you're trying to use Ubuntu 11 or Ubuntu 12. Especially with your on-board graphics chip which borrows system ram.

Try Ubuntu 10.04.4 LTS (Lucid Lynx) instead.

Go Here and download the 1st link on the list under Desktop CD:
http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/

OR...

Here is a direct link to the ISO file you need to download and then burn to a CD:
http://releases.ubuntu.com/lucid/ubuntu-10.04.4-desktop-i386.iso

If you don't have Software for burning iso's to CD's then download and install this totally FREE CD Burning program:

I have a toshiba with this drive and tells me that the driver is corrupted or missing. what should i do?


These are usually factory drives of the Toshiba Satellites, and possibly other Toshiba notebook models. Check your notebook model and visit the Toshiba website. They may have a firmware update or driver update for this specific drive in relation to your model notebook.

Hi. I have a toshiba equium l20-198 laptop dvd burning problems


there could be 4 things that's wrong that I can think of.

1. try this first, go and force xp to take your updated drivers by telling it to install from a specific location->don't search. I will choose the driver to install->have disk->have disk->point it to the driver's location-> continue and it should install that specific driver.
2. the software you're using to burn with isn't playing nicely with your drive. try using cdburnerxp which is a free burning software and test the results of those burns.
3. the firmware on your drive is corrupted(happens from time to time). try installing a new firmware from matshita's website. remember, firmware is different from drivers.
4. the dvd drive itself is busted. try using an external drive to burn a dvd(if you have one available) or switch the drive out and see if that fixes things.

after looking at some forums, seems like this drive is ripe with issues but hopefully it's not a hardware issue in your case.

hope that helps.

Write speed problems with my DVD-R...PLEASE HELP!!!


alright its time to fix tis...

First...I don't understand what the check box in the drive's recording properties is asking "Enable CD recording on this drive"?????
It is another Feature that is provided for your DVD burner harware device,(you will understand indepth once you come across some thing to use that feature on Your Own)


Second...does anyone know what burning software works best for this burner????
Nero is one of the Most commonly used Burners and there are Trial Versions available for Free for you to download and use it.
besides that you can try softwares like Roxio,SONIC and ay more...


Third...is it a DLA file I need, or firmware, or do I have to do something in Windows to fix this problem????
I dont think you will need any of those because the 24X is the Max speed for your DVD burner you can adjust the Burning speed by being able to Adjust the setting from you DVD software(which entirely Vary from Software to software)

A friend asked me to download drivers for his Toshiba Satellite M45-S2692 laptop, but the best I can locate is...


Goto this page
http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/su/su_sc_modSel.jsp

Select the portables -> Satellite -> then the model

There you will find all the drivers for the laptop

to burn them to a cd first download them all then you can use the windows build in burner.. to drag and drop all the downloaded files into the cd drive (I assume you have a drive which can burn a cd) Then select burn these files into the cd.

IF you need more assistance with this let me know.
