SOURCE: DVD DRIVE WONT READ

You may have installed a program for the cloning that has "commandeered" your drive. Try doing a System Restore to a date prior to cloning the DVD. You can also try uninstalling any programs like MagicISO or Alcohol and then re-installing your normal burning software. You can also try Uninstalling or disabling your drive and re-booting, forcing a driver reload.

I upgraded to xp and since then my sd c2512 drive will not play dvd's and says there is no dvd software. Also I dont have the original boot disk, do I need to buy dvd software? or is there a download fix...


Did you buy this item as a notebook part, or did you buy another unit such as an external drive and take the drive out of it? If you took the drive out of another item, then you are going to have problems with the on board firmware. Toshiba is a nightmare for doing this.

Also some Toshiba computers do not allow you to upgrade the drive, even with a new Toshiba drive. I learnt this the hard way many years ago. At that time my new Toshiba Notebook would not recognize the New Toshiba DVD Drive, but my decade old Gateway Notebook did. I contacted Toshiba and they said they Firmware lockout new upgrades to encourage people to buy new computers.

Yes, you can upgrade your CD drive to DVD drive.But it will be more costly.I suggest you get an external USB DVD drive.It's will be save you on money factor.

But still you perfer to replace it, get a compatible one.
