My toshiba equium a200-1v0 will not burn to dvd


Does it read CD/DVDs fine? If so, the laser head for writing data to the discs may be defective. Also, keep in mind that when CD/DVD drivers start to fail, they may be able to read/write to CDs and not to DVDs or vice versa.

Otherwise, go to "Start" and right-click on "Computer" and select "Properties". Then, on the top left corner of the window, go to "Device Manager". Expand "Disk drives" and make sure there is no exclamation mark or question mark on the CD/DVD device. If there is, then either the driver software is missing/corrupt or the drive is defective. If no CD/DVD drive is listed, then it is not being recognized as being installed then check all of the cables to make sure nothing's loose, otherwise it is most likely defective.

You'll need to check and see if the disk is formatted and recognized as a logical disk. To do this, Go to Start, and locate the Run option, and type in diskmgmt.msc or you can go to My Computer, right-click it and select "Manage" from the popup menu. Then, at the bottom of the list to the left, you'll see the Disk Management submenu.
Once you're in the Disk Management applet, click on the WD from the list of available hard drives from the list, and see if the partition is recognized as formated. If it's not formated you may need to format it. If the disk is recognized as RAW disk, then you'll need to first create an extended partition and then format it with NTFS file system. REMEMBER, if you can access the drive from another computer and it's recognized properly in Explorer, then formating it will erase all data on the disk. But if you never used it before (i.e you dont have any data on it) then you can go ahead with the formatting, which should solve your problem if it's a software issue.
If you heard your disk clicking for a while in the past, and you had problems with it: slow reading of files, sluggish in copying files etc. then your hard drive may be mechanically failing and in this case there's nothing you can do to save it. If this is the case and you still have warranty, return the disk to where you bought it from, and ask for a replacement.

If this was informative and helpful please vote with a Thumb Up. Thank you.

The computer reads the hard drive but i dont see a disk drive on' my computer' i.e i cant access the hard drive.


Do the following to see if the hard drive is recognized.

Left Click on control panel
Left Click on administrative tools
Left Click on Computer Management
scroll down the screen until you find disk management
left click on disk management.

see if you device is listed in the disk management window.

If so then, right click on the disk you indicated and select properties.

make sure the disk is active and that windows is reading the basic information.

IF your computer does not recognize the hard disk, you may want to disconnect it and reboot your computer.

then reconnect it, and restart once again.

this allows your bios and operating system the chance to "discover" your hardware again.

I have a WD external hard drive USB 2.0 750 GB. It was working just fine for many months, and suddenly, my laptop won't "read" it -- it's not listed/detected in "my computer." I thought there was something...


If the device is recognized and not listed as a driver in the Explorer, then the disk is not recognized as having been partitioned and formatted. You can use the Disk Manager to see if there is anything listed on the disk.
Start - > right-click My Computer -> Properties
In the management console, go to disk management and check your disks. The external disk should be there and then you can see the partitions and drives assigned to it.
If there is nothing on it, your MBR could be damaged, which needs to be restored.

Alternatively you could partition and format it, but then you'd loose the data on it, so that is a last resort.

I think a program called Acronis Disk Director Suite can restore MBR's. Have a look at this external hard disk troubleshooting article.

Just because the device manager says the drive is working fine doesn't mean it is. If it won't recognize the ZIP disk, either the disk itself is bad or the zip drive is bad. I would try another zip disk and see if it will read a known good zip disk.
