Question about Toshiba Satellite A100-S8111TD Notebook

DVD/CD Rom Drive

Hi,

My disk drive can not read any CD's but can read and write DVD's. I've tried the Microsoft fix that I found around the internet involving deleting upperfilters from the registry but the entry isn't even there.
Also, I've tried uninstalling the driver and installing it again, and I've deleted the device and rebooted, still to no avail.

Any other ideas?

    Bah I'm sorry I should've mentioned that.

    Yes I'm on Vista. I've tried all kinds of CD's and it just doesn't recognise them - it keeps saying please insert disk. It doesn't do this with DVD's though.

Dvd+rw nd-2100ad no disk in drive error


Can you see DVD-RW drives indicator busy when you insert that disk for a long time? if so, your drive may not going to read that disk. If it is in case of CD disk, sometimes DVD-RW just can't read it while very old CD-ROM can read! If this happens in case of other CD/DVD witch is readable by other DVD-RW, You may just try to clean the lens of your drive.

DVD/CD-ROM drive not working. Drivers were reinstalled and still not operational. Message received that there is a problem with the registry - how can this be fixed?


Find a "bootable" CD-R disk (Ubuntu Linux, Microsoft Windows Vista, Microsoft Windows 7) and restart your computer, and tell it to "boot" from the disk inserted into the CD/DVD disk. If it reads from the CD/DVD, then the hardware is OK. If it cannot read the disk, then it's time to replace the "broken" CD/DVD device.

Sorry, but that's not the case. Most DVD drives will read CD's, but most CD drives will not read DVDs, so unless yours specifically says it's a DVD drive, It's not going to work for you. HINT: the cost of a DVD drive is far less than the cost of Office software.

Check the cd-rom power is on or not. Then also if its not reading then Insert an DVD/CD cleaner disk and follow the steps. The cleaner disk is available in any of the computer shops.

My dvdrom drive wont let me access the drive


ITs a dvd rom drive. It will not burn blank dvds
in order to burn, it has to cd-r/cd-rw/dvd-r/dvd-rw. If a drive cannot write to a blank disc, it will eject it. Rom drives read only (Read Only Memory), Combo drives- burn cd's only read dvd's, and super drives both read and write to cds and dvds.

Unable to read some of the DVDs......


It's possible that the drive has died. CD and DVD drives are notorious for short lives but then I've seen some last 5 years. The lens could be dirty, just a small piece of lint is enough to cause hassles. Try using a Lens cleaner, available from all good audio shops. Some machines don't like +R disks and a firmware upgrade is needed. I've done many Liteon Drives with terrific results but if the manufacturer hasn't put one out then you're lost. It's possible you've used the wrong upgrade to fix your problem. With the prices of drives today it's sometimes cheaper to replace it. Believe me they can die quickly, my record is a week from brand new to unuseable and that was a Sony. BMW
