CD RW/ DVD RW Drive Will not read and Burned discs or burn to blank discs

My CD / DVD RW Drive on my Satellite Notebook ( I don't know what model it is but it is about 2.5 yrs old with a 1.5 ghz processor if that helps) will no longer read any cd or dvd that has been burned, it just thinks there is a blank disc in the drive. Additionally, it has an error anytime I try to burn something to a blank disc. Other than that the drive will read store bought cds and dvds just fine. It seems like a software problem, but I don't really know what to do. Please help.

I suggest a firmware update from Toshiba. If this does not help then your laser in the drive is no longer capable of this task. Also just thought about it but make sure the media that you are burning to is the same as the drive + or - R's

If your Drive is a CD-Rome drive, surely it cant, for the drive cant read dvd disc. Replace the drive of yours with DVD-Rom or DVD-RW in order to play dvd disc, DVD-RW simply has the added capablity to burn on DVD discs

SC-152A/COM black CD-Rom specifications/ can i write onto a disc with this product?


Sorry but no, The SC-152A is a read only CD-Rom drive not a burner. You will need to get an IDE CD-RW drive to add to you system to be able to burn disks. If you are going to get a drive the price difference between a CD-RW and a DVD-RW drive is very little so you might as well get one that will also burn DVD disks and the CD disks. You can get a dirve at for $23 plus $2 shipping that will do just what you need. If you need help finding one on their site or you need additional help please email me at:

I hope this helps, if so please rate our solution.

I have been attempting to burn a cd from my itunes library, it keeps giving me an error 2630. Yes I am using a new blank cd.

What type of CD media does your burner support? CD+R CD-R, CD-RW.
A few suggestions:
CD-RW or re-writables do not support audio burning to CD format.
Are songs being burned as a data disc(unplayable files) or CD audio?
Have you exceeded the 700 to 800 MB range of data that a CD can hold?
Try dropping a couple of songs off the list and see what happens.
Try rebooting the computer and try burning again.
Down load a free version of Nero software and try to burn the CD from there.

The laser that reads (or "burns") has failed.
