Question about Toshiba SD R2312 CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner

2 Answers

I have a Toshiba Satellite laptop with a SD-R2512 DVD drive that the unit will not recognize. It sees it in device manager and says that the drive is missing...code 39. I tried to delete it in that location with hopes that when I would reboot it would recognize it as new hardware and XP would load the correct drive but no help. Any help out there? Driving me crazy. Let me know if you have any ideas to try. Would really appreciate it. Thanks, Rob :)

Satellite A205 Toshiba The DVD is not recognized by the computer


If the computer is seeing the drive try to re-install drivers first. If re-installing the drivers doesn't work your may need to replace the DVD drive.

Upgrade CD/DVD ROM to CD-RW/DVD ROM


I just replaced my original CD/DVD ROM with a Toshiba SD-R2512 CD-RW/DVD ROM in my 1805-S253 running Windows ME. I used "Roxio Easy CD Creator" for writing to CD's. Everything was "plug'n'play" except the bezel that came with the new drive had to be swapped out. Windows ME recognized the new drive immediately and I didn't have to load any new drivers. This upgrade will probably work on other 1800 or 1805 Satellite series machines.

CD/DVD drive problem


See if the Drive Reads in My Computer. See if you can see the contents of the CD. Try to run or play the data.

If not... you may need to uninstall the CD driver and let it reload again. The way to do that is to Rt Click My Computer | Letf Click Properties | go to Device Manager | go to and open DVD - CD Rom Drive Folder | Rt Click the Device and unistall. Total Shut Down Reboot after taken out the Drive in the system. Start up and let it completely finish. Shut down again... restart with drive back in. Hopfully it will redetect and work.

If not again... Bad Drive ?

Toshiba DVD not showing up


Does the DVD drive show up in Device Manager under "CD/DVD drives"? It's possible that either the drive is bad ...or maybe there is a bent pin on the connector side preventing it from recognizing the drive. However, that's kind of rare.

If the DVD drive is listed, is there any "splats" or exclamation marks next to it? If so, I'd first try uninstalling the drive and rebooting. Windows *might* be able to properly install the drive. If not, try downloading the drivers (if there are any for Toshiba drives) here.

Worst case scenario ...if it turns out to be a bad drive, you can always just get an external USB drive, and not necessarily have to replace the factoy unit, which can get expensive.

Hope this helps (a little) :)

Dvd rom not reading dvd while reading cd properly!!!


The demands on the drive differ greatly for reading CDs & DVDs.
This is a common problem since alignment of the drive is very critical for DVDs and often fails first.

I don't offer much hope, but you might buy a special disk for cleaning optical drives; sometimes they will help.

This article has some tips that might be of use:

Toshiba dvd burner problem


Try unistalling the dvd drive in device manager. Go to my computer click on view system information. Then click on hardware, then click on device manager find your dvd drive then right click and unistall a warning window will popup click ok. Once you unistall it restart the system and windows will find new device and reinstall the device driver. Then check if this fixes the problem. if this dosnt fix the problem try removing the dvd drive from the laptop and reinsert it. Sometimes the connection losses contact with the terminals.
