That's fairly normal. Assuming that's in the model name, then that's just what device manufacturer has put in the ROM in the device and doesn't usually reflect its capabilities. As long as it works on both + and - (if that's what you need), that's fine. If you have a program such as Nero installed, you can look at the actual device capabilities as reported by the hardware itself.

Go into Device Manager and remove the optical drive from the list. Restart the computer. It should detect "New Hardware", identify it and install the correct driver.

What's going on: apparently there was a glitch or bug in the Windows 7 upgrade. The DVD drive is misidentified in the Registry as a CD-ROM drive, but it kept the old driver. Of course, Windows 7 thinks a DVD driver is incorrect, so it puts a yellow warning flag on it in Device Manager. It also refuses to acknowledge any disc in there except a CD (stupid computer!). So we need to get the incorrect info out of the registry before Windows will run the optical drive properly.

If Windows 7 gets stubborn about it, turn off the computer, look for the optical drive retaining screw, and take it out and physically remove the optical drive. Now, you should be able to remove the optical drive from the Registry. Restart the computer, double check that the optical drive is gone from Device Manager, then shut it down again. Put the optical drive back in the computer and turn it on. This time it should get everything right.

I need driver Toshiba DVD sd r2102


DVD & CD R/RW use generic windows drivers for the most part. Remove the drive from the list in device manager. Windows will then install the drivers again when you reboot.

Im sorry to tell you this my friend.. it seems I catch you a bad time but I suggest that you need to replace it with a new drive since CD/DVD writers has its life span limit.. Be careful in doing burn CD's especially if its in long hours since it tend to damage the lens of your drive because of too much heat that was prolonged in a long run.. If your'e using it as DVD ROM at the same time, I suggest that you must have another drive to minimize damage to your drives..

Driver won't work


Are you saying the bios detects the drive, but when you go to My Computer you cant see the drive listed? If so, Right click on My computer and in the menu select 'manage', In the Computer management window select removable media and activate the drive. It will then show in My computer, and be able to read/write cd's/dvd/s. If this does NOT work, then update the firmware for the drive. A lot of times when you buy a new drive, the firmware on it is out of date and the manufacturer has a new firmware out for it to fix computability issues with the collage of hardware thats out there.

Dvd-rom trouble


Hi, first of all, I'd check if you have the problem with CD/DVDs burned (written on a CD/DVD writer) or you have it also with original CD/DVDs, which would be weird. Depending on your finding to the above point I'd do one thing or another, but to me does not look like a driver problem. I'd check with Toshiba support if there's a new firmware for your drive, this does improve the media the device can read and correct problems like the one you mention. To know the fimware version you're using, open device manager and go find your drive, right click on it and choose details tab. Normally the firmware revision is the number at the end of the instance. Good luck mate !
