Question about Toshiba Satellite A205-S4607 Notebook PC

DVD drive malfunction

My DVD drive suddenly stopped working on my Toshiba A205-S4607. I have even looked at the item in the Device Manager and it refuses to update the drivers. I have a Pioneer-DVD-RW DVR-K17LF ATA dvd drive. I was able to do a system restore on it once and the DVD drive worked after that, so it looked like a Vista update borked it. However, it will not even work after a system restore now. Help!

I had a similar problem with my P205D-S7454. The registry fix worked for me.

Same problem

There might be some programs/applications that are blocking you from your connection. Check for security softwares or firewalls. If possible, lower the settings down.

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.
