The light from DVD laser has a smaller wavelength (640 nanometers) than the light from the laser in a CD (780 nanometers)

A DVD/CD player has different laser beams. So if one is damage, the other can still function. In your case, the DVD laser beam/lens is probably damaged. It is hard to repair the problem and DVD reader/writers are cheap these days that it is better to get a new than to repair your old one.

I reformat my toshiba satellite a300-146 but i dont have the cd installer drivers, what do i do..


Please be a little more specific, you cannot use the cd-rom at all?

Did you manage to get the operating system installed (like Windows) but now you need the drivers?

I am assuming that you just don't have the drivers for your computer.

If this is the case, then you can download them here:

http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=EU&mode=allMachines&action=search&teddProduct=781&selShortMod=694

It looks like this a european model, and the page listed has many drivers for the many a300's manufactured. It may take some wading through to find your drivers.

Hi, go into your control panel then device manager, open DVD/CD ROM then open your installed dvd. There should be a dvd region tab select this and there you will see all regions you can change to.
Be careful though as you can only make a limited number of changes!

A DVD-ROM problem


Find a technician who can do it for you - or if you are conversant with computers you get an eternal dvd rom Drive and use it. Have you tried the floppy drive if your computer has any? or the flash disk?

please try one these options.

Reinstallation with recovery disk


I've had myself almost same problem in my 5200-801, but with reading DVD's.
It was allready the second dvd/cd drive replaced by Toshiba.
Then I replaced the DVD/CD drive myself because I ran out of guarantee, with one bought from the internet and much cheaper than the original one. A multi drive which even do the lightscribe job and that one works very well.
