Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I have a Toshiba A305-S6829 laptop. At first, I used to be able to play and burn CD's and DVDs without any hassel. However, recently, i discovered that i can only play and burn DVDs. My CDs will not play and I cannot burn either. When i insert a CD into the CD /DVD WR drive, nothing loads...what should I do? Thanks in Advance: Rav.

you might have to physically unplug the leads for this cd/dvd restart your computer then plug them back this should activate the found new hardware wizard

Drivers microphone toshiba A305-S6829


All of the drivers for your laptop are located here: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=DL&os=&category=&moid=1998603&rpn=PSAG0U&modelFilter=A305-S6829&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663
From what you've described, it sounds like you need drivers for your sound card (as most non-USB microphones don't need drivers). Please make sure the drivers you download are for the correct operating system.

Dvd recording


I had the same problem and spent some time looking up this issue. I have a sony dvd player and it seems to have trouble reading almost any burnt dvd or cd. I have read that sonys seem to prefer the cheap dvds and cds for burning. It seems the cheap'O dvd players play burnt dvds and cds better that the nice ones, go figure.

There is more info out there about making sure to burn dvds and cds in the correct format.
You can try different burning software that has more options than just vista.
If you are creating a dvd from a movie file such as an avi or mpeg, please explain more on what you are doing and trying to accomplish.

G'luck

Toshiba A305-6825 laptop prolem (no visible CD/DVD Rom drive). In Device Manager: HL-DT-ST dvdram gsa-t40F ATA device error. Media test failure. There appears to be CD/DVD combo drive firmware...


You seem to be onto things (though your problem classification was generic instead of for your Toshiba model A305.) Install all the updated drivers for your laptop from the laptop's support site (Toshiba's, that is) so you can use your drive. Drives fail sometimes, and you could try sticking an old movie or something in there instead of nothing, but it is likely it is just the missing driver.
