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.

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:

Hi, my toshiba M45 Dvd Room is not working.... it cannot detect cd being inserted in it... how can i fix this problem?


It may be that your DVDRom lense is not clear. you can use any DVD Lense cleaner CD to clean that.

You can also try with another CD.

I have a toshiba L300 satellite pro with wnds vista.my problem with it is that i can`t burn dvds in the media centre.it does`nt accept any disk to burn with"BURN FAILURE error with cd/dvd" displayed every...


Hi,

Although this is not a common problem it happens often enough, generally this problem is a result of either a driver problem with the burner, or a software issue with media center. Both issues can normally be resolved through runing windows update and selecting the "View Available Updates" below the install button and selecting any additional updates. Sometimes it's a simple backend program or driver causing the trouble.

If this doesn't work, replay back here by adding a comment with you long form model #(on the bottom) and I will dig in a bit deeper for you.

Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

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)
