    Hello djnick989!

    No, I think it is not the case. At first, I can burn CD discs, even Video CD using Nero.

    I easyly had burned a lot of DVDs before some time ago I had a big problem with my harddrive.I had to replace on a new one in Toshiba shop in our area (Boston, MA). All stuff has been recovered. But this function - only DVD burning - not.

    What's yuor other idea? And recovery disc is usele4ss in this regard.

    Thanks a lot for your advices.

I have this exact same problem! I've been high and low trying to find a solution. The simpleton that I am I never looked up the model number of the dvd recorder drive. Now I find this question over 2 years later! I changed my hard drive in my laptop just like you did--Ghosted the drive just to get the cd recovery disc to work and it still gave me ****! Most of my drivers are set to default. I WANT MY COMPUTER THE WAY IT CAME! Even taking it in for service didn't help. I feel I've made progress and I'm not alone...I don't have a solution sorry, but I'm going to figure it out and when I do I will send a link to the driver. I have a Toshiba Satellite 5205 series. Finally this page will come up when somebody looks that model number--GEEZE!

I am cleaning an old Toshiba satellite, A25 S307 laptop, and beneath the fan on the motherboard is a switch, 2 positions, top end has other, bottom end says 3.0G printed on the mobo. Any idea what

Hi James, this is to set the processor speed, Other = speed is set in the BIOS and 3.0G forces the processor to run at 3 GHZ regardless of the BIOS setting.

I'd just like to purchase or download a system restore disc for a Toshiba Satellite laptop; model A25-S307. Thank you!

Call TOSHIBA @ 800 457-7777 the recovery CD's are hard to get because it's an older unit but you can still purchase them from TOSHIBA or ask then for a local service center provider.

I have a problem with my TOSHIBA DVD ROM SD R6012, dont read enything DVD, only CD

1. you many need to remove and reinstall the device if removable. Then re-install the ddriver set.\More than likely the laser "read" is defective. This is usually a needed replacement unit.
2.Contact Toshiba technical support. There also may be a loose cable which in any case will require a tech to disassemble the PC unit and repair it.
I hope this helps. Have a great day!

How do you take a Toshiba A25-S307 apart to clean out dust?

I managed to locate a website providing some instruction on the disassembly of Toshiba laptops. While the one aimed at your laptop isn't for the purpose of cleaning out the case, I think it will get you close. I found both articles here:

Article 1 (For the A25) to reach the memory area of your laptop:

Article 2 (For the A20) to disassemble the laptop and replace hinges:

As mentioned, the article for the A25 isn't specific to what you're attempting to accomplish. Yet between the two articles, I think you can get the job done. Just remember, ground yourself before working on the laptop. You don't want to destroy anything because you accidentally discharged static electricity.

Let us know how things turn out, or if you require any further assistance.

Have you tried downloading the drivers for your SD card reader? You can obtain them for your laptop from the Toshiba download site here. Once you install the updated drivers, it will probably solve your problem. If not, leave a comment and I will try to help further.
