Re: toshiba cd-r/rw drive reads but doesnt write

I checked out the specs for that drive.It only reads dvds/cds.
I see that it has no cd/dvd writing capabilities.

All the cd's you used may still be blank

Do you have another drive you can try out?

Toshiba SD-R2312 Upgrade to DVD Writer

If your current device is CD-RW/DVD-ROM, then any CD-RW/DVD-RW device that you can purchase will _physically_ replace and will fit into the space occupied by your current device.

I'm very late to your question, but the problem is that this drive doesn't burn DVDs (i.e., it was not designed to do that). It's a CD-RW, DVD-ROM (read only).

Toshiba DVD-ROM SD 6012

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..
