Cd drive error for toshiba L305

I have been experiencing problems with my CD-Drive on my Toshiba L305-S5907 and the error report I receive is:

A driver (service) for this device has been disabled. An alternate driver may be providing this functionality. (Code 32)

Click 'Check for solutions' to send data about this device to Microsoft and to see if there is a solution available.

I have attempted to update drivers from the Microsoft website and the "recommended solutions" from my system, but after research I have found that no solutions have been generated for this problem. I've uninstalled/reinstalled the hardware with no solution. I have contemplated installing a new disk drive, but I am unsure how to remove the drive from the laptop. The Toshiba website provided guides for removal, but not for my model. Any assistance is appreciated. Thank you.

On the bottom side of the laptop, you should find a little screw near the drive possibly labeled (css). Remove that one and try to gently remove the drive. Some laptops have a little slide lever that if you move it to the other side, a little tab will come out and you can pull out the drive with this tab.

Hi,
With the Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 Laptop, you can put a 500GB hard drive and up to 2 TB hard drive. The only requirements are to make sure it has a SATA connector and is 2.5" Size. These are very common and easily found online. For example, here a 500GB one that is compatible that I found: Click Here.
Hope this helps. If it does, please accept and rate the solution! Contact me with any more questions you may have. Thanks for using FixYa!

I get the error message when i try to create media recovery for my laptop toshiba l505. the error messsage is "no HDD recovery area", "the toshiba recovery media creator cannot be...


I am glad to HELP YOU!


When you start to create the RECOVERY MEDIA your machine is creating a virtual file [a temporary one...] that includes all parameters and drivers and system files of your operating system; once the temporary file is done the recovery files are written on the indicated media [a hard drive or a DVD/CD].
Because of the huge size of the file [the temporary one] you need enough room for the virtual file to be created.
So you got your error message just because you DON'T HAVE ENOUGH ROOM on your hard drive.
My suggestion is: find an external drive [a USB attached hard drive] and make the RECOVERY MEDIA there. Meanwhile try to clean up a little bit your hard drive by using that application in Windows called DISK CLEANER [START > ALL PROGRAMS > ACCESSORIES > DISK TOOLS > DISK CLEANER].

My best regards!

Restore Original Configuration


The best advice I feel that I can give you, is to contact Toshiba Support, and ask about how to obtain the Recovery Disk, for your Satellite L305-S5919.

Toshiba Support- Contact Us,

http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/navShell.jsp?cf=su_contact

Generally, the Recovery Disk contents can be downloaded over the internet, or a Recovery Disk CD is mailed to you.
If it's feasible for you, I advise having the CD mailed to you.

This way you'll have a CD, accessible right at your fingertips, and can do a Fresh Install, or a Repair, whenever you like.

Would also like to offer the Drivers and Software download page, for your Toshiba laptop.
It's best to Refine your search, and go to the top heading -> Refine Search By: Operating System <- , and choose the Operating System you're using. (Examples: Windows XP or Windows Vista)
