Question about Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook
When I insert a DVD into the drive, I get an I/O device error. A couple of weeks ago, I was able to view a a certain DVD. I tried the same DVD today and got this error message. Under DeviceManager, I expanded the "IDE/ATA ATAPI Controllers" node and changed settings to PIO mode. Nothing changed. What else can I try? Thank you.
First open the "Device Manager" to check for any error messages related to the device and click on "Start" and select "Control Panel" .
Now double-click on the "System" icon then click on the "Hardware" tab and click the "Device Manager" button. A new window appears, and displays whether the device is working properly. If there are any errors, click the "Troubleshoot" button and follow the given onscreen instructions.
Check the DVD that you are trying to use to and ensure that it is free of dirt and scratches and the proper format compatible with your drive.
Now uninstall any drivers that may be on your computer from previous DVD drives.
Now download the latest driver updates for your DVD drive model from Toshiba website & install it.
Also check on Toshiba website that your machine has the minimum requirements to operate the drive.
Now restart your computer & check your DVD drive.
I hope issue has been resolved.
