I bought a replacement DVD-RW-DVR from Toshiba, but I do not have a driver.I'm using Window7. "They sent me a Pioneer DVD-RW-DVR-K17LF ATA device.


Attach the new drive as instructed.
Make sure the notebook has an internet connection and switch it on normally. Windows should recognize the unit and ask you for a driver. Click install automatically. It may then download the driver and install it.
If none of this happens, keeping the internet connection open, right-click My Computer/ Hardware/Device manager and the DVD will appear there with a question mark meaning it is uninstalled. Click on it and choose to install a new driver. Windows should do the rest. Good luck.
There may be a third way to download the driver from Toshiba and install it manually.

If you are asking for the information regarding the ODD here it is: DVD SuperMulti (+/-R double layer) with Labelflash? drive supporting 11 formats * Maximum speed and compatibility: CD-ROM (24x), CD-R (24x), CD-RW (4x), DVD-ROM (8x), DVD-R (Single Layer, (8x)), DVDR (Double Layer, (4x)), DVD-RW (4x), DVD+R (Single Layer, (8x)), DVD+R (Double Layer, (4x)), DVD+RW (4x), DVD-RAM (5x) * Supports Labelflash? media to burn high quality labels directly on the disk. If not ( Cant read CD or DVD ) then most likely the lens on the ODD is already busted. or ODD cant be detected then just go to the Website support.toshiba.com and download the latest update for the ODD. And install the driver on your NB and restart the NB. If still the same then the ODD you have is already busted what you need to do is to buy a new ODD.

Can you play a dvd movie if you can try reinstalling your dvd burning software. nero could have a corropt file if you are using this. If you cannot play any dvd and does not recouldnize any dvd disk their could be a problem with the device. I have not seen this error code before.
