System will not recognize jump drive

I have a: Toshiba A205-S4607Model # PSAF0U02C009, Vista Home premium operating system


About 6 months ago the system it quite recognizing my jump drive. It does ok with the printer and an external Segate hard drive but not with a jump drive or an ipod that has been set up as a jump drive.

The system locks up once the drive has been inserted but after awhile will show the drive and indicate it needs to be formated. The ipod and drive work on my other computer.

Vista does not recognize many accessories if the correct driver is not present its driver database.Its not possible to install separate drivers for any additional component. Either buy a Vista compatible device or use WinXP_SP3....sodeep

I need to get back in my OEM vista home premium


If you contact Toshiba, they can send you the original restore disks. If you are really nice to them, they might send them out for free.. I believe normally they do charge but they sent them to me for free a couple of years ago with my Toshiba laptop :)

DVD drive malfunction


Yes, you need to find your local ASP. You can ship it in to us too if you'd like. We're an authorized ASP. This is a VERY common problem in the A205 series. Let me know if you require any more details. By the way, mailing the laptop in might take some time, I'd check with your local ASP (hopefully there's one local to you) and have them order it if possible without having you leaving the laptop there (some ASP's will be ok with that option, we are at times). You will need to provide your laptop part number (starts with PSAxx-xxxx) & serial number and machine has to be under warranty.

advice: extended warranty ;) but i think it's too late now.
