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 have the Toshiba Satellite Satellite P200/P205 Series and I continually have problems with my Pioneer DVD-RW DVR-K17LF ATA Device. Now it will not even allow me to reload the driver.

    dvd drive stops reading

  • carlpefran Apr 20, 2008

    I Have a Toshiba Satellite A205-S4629 with a Pioneer DVR-K17LF and Windows Vista Ultimate SP1. My drive reads and burns DVDs but does not recognize (read nor burn) CDs at all. Toshiba does not have any drivers for this type of drive. Already tried the registry lower/upper bound method with no solution.

    Any recommendations?

    I was reformatting my hard drive and my DVD drive stopped working right in the middle of the format, since I had no operating system installed i'm basically sitting with a pile of neatly placed metal and plastic.

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.

DVD drive malfunction


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.
