Go to "Control Panel, then " then "System and Security" and then "Device Manager". Check under "DVD/CD ROM Drives" to see if you Optical Drive is indeed listed. If it is not there, it needs to be reinstalled. Go to http://www.mytoshiba.com.au/support/computers/satellite/l750/psk2ya-04k010/download?os=25 and download the "Chipset" driver for the appropriate Operating System and install it and then reboot your system and see if the drive has been found.

If the Optical Drive is present, you can delete it and then download and install the Chipset driver to replace it with a correct driver.

I have seen this happen multiple times with Toshiba laptops. Good luck.

Why isn't my HP office jet 4500 G510 a-f printer connected?


Maybe you didn't install the driver properly, i guess that model will need you to install the driver 1st before connecting your printer to the PC.
Try uninstalling the driver...restarting PC...reinstalling driver...connecting printer (while in off position)...switching on your printer.

USB key not recognized


Check if you have the motherboard cd. If you have check for usb drivers and install them.

Then try doing the steps below if you dont have the driver cd or if does not work

navigate to

start>control panel>system>hardware>device manager

Run the computer in Safe Mode.
You go into device manager
You select a USB controller, right click, select delete.
You do this for each controller.
Shut down the computer.
Start up computer.
The drivers will load or reinstall themselves automatically. You will see the progress of the reinstallation on the task bar.

IRiver Music Manger not recognizing iRiver player when connected


First make sure you have the right drivers installed, you're hearing the "new device connected" sound when you plug it in, it's listed as recognized under device manager, and the only problem seems to be that iriver music manager isn't recognizing it.

If everything is working except for the music manager, then try holding down the "fast-forward" button at the same time that you connect the cable to the iriver. You probably want to keep iriver music manager loaded, to see if it's recognizing the player while you test this; try attaching/detaching the device several times, while you're holding down fast-forward and while you aren't, to see if that's enough to fix your problem.

I have no idea why it works when it does, it's an ugly kludge, but it seemed to fix the problem for me, and saved me from having to buy an entirely new flash mp3 player to replace this ancient one.

Vista no longer recognizes my CD-ROM


"...manual driver update..." ... from the device's included driver disk? Or from a web-source? If web-source, how long ago and from where?
"...it found the hardware but was still unable to load driver software..." ... So Windows does recognize it then? Unable to load what .. the driver(s)?
"...Vista just isn't recognizeing my CD-ROM at all" ... ??? If I understand correctly, Windows "device manager" recognizes when its deleted, then refreshed, but Vista doesn't recognize it? By this do you mean it's icon does not show up in "My Computer"?

Lot of questions I know, but it's necessary to define the trouble in order to know which direction to go next.

ASSUMING IT'S RECOGNIZED BY YOUR WINDOWS VISTA OPERATING SYSTEM:

Here are a couple of very helpful and comprehensive software diagnostic tools for you to download at http://www.cdspeed2000.com/download.html. They are both FREEWARE and the same tools licensed to Nero for inclusion in their software products.

Installation: Simply extract/unzip the file to any chosen directory and run the executable (*.EXE).

1. "Nero DiscSpeed". Thoroughly tests speed and performance of your optical drives(s).
Download: http://www.cdspeed2000.com/files/NeroDiscSpeed_41140.zip
- Refer to the program's Help for guidance.
- User guide also available at http://club.cdfreaks.com/showthread.php?t=192563
- Here's a quick shorthand:
a. File > Options > Standard Tests > Choose which tests you wish to run (if unsure, use the default settings), then "OK"
b. Click "Start"

2. "Nero DriveSpeed". Adjust/control your drive's spin /up/down times and noise levels.
Download: http://www.cdspeed2000.com/files/NeroDriveSpeed_300.zip

ASSUMING IT'S NOT:

You need to get the latest and best driver package, then re-install. If you can provide the make/model/series of the drive, I can provide you with a reliable source to download.

Please report back, and in all likelyhood we'll get you some joy.

Compal notebook ... problem with dvd.


Try deleting the incorrect driver, then do a search for hardware. If that doesn't work, go to your computer manufacturer's website and download and install the correct driver to your cd/dvd. Then restart your computer. Your cd/dvd drive should be recognized then.

Umm..Try install all the drivers of your system. the CD was enclosed in your system. if ever the cd is not work you should download the driver of your system.
