Question about Toshiba Satellite P205-S6287 Notebook PC
I recently bought a Toshiba Satellite L45-S7423 laptop, it was working ok, I even burned some DVDs but a few minutes ago the dvd driver just stopped reading my cds/dvds!
I looked on the internet and found out Im not alone, other people have the same problem I have with this driver. I searched in FixYa and one of ur experts said to a guy that has the same problem to uninstall the driver and try the "Scan for hardware changes", I did it but it failed, now I dont have the driver installed anymore.
Can anyone help me??
This has been a common windows issue. I'm sure that this will solve your problem. You can go to this link, http://tinyurl.com/toshibadvd, download the registry file and run it. After that, just restart your computer and it should be good to go.
If you're not sure and is worried about security since this is messing with the registry, you can just click on this microsoft link where it explains and gives you detailed instructions on how to manually edit the registry and fix the problem. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/929461.
This is typically the same thing, the first one is just a shortcut on how to do it. Just a reminder, EDIT THE REGISTRY AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!

Hope this will give you relief why CD wont show-up on My Computer even. I understand the DVD/CD(Reader/Writer) were not successfully mounted or there is a problem with the drivers. If you can manage to uninstall the DVD/CD(Reader/Writer) at Safe Mode please do it. Resolving complex problem with this type may result sometimes by reformatting the system. I met several problems like this and we successfully load it up and working again.
