DVD Drive not working properly

The DVD Drive of my Toshiba Laptop M45-S355 does not recognize most CD/DVD's anymore. After reading the CD/DVD it says "Blanc Disk" or sometimes if it can not read the CD/DVD it says "Insert Disk". What should I do?

Try cleaning the drive with a cleaning disc (purchasbale at most electronics stores like Best Buy or Circuit City). If that doesn't get it up and running, it'll need to be replaced.

Hi

Thak you for yor query

To ensure the CD/DVD is clean please try booting from a known working PC, from what you are describing it may not be your CD drive

If the same thing happnes on another PC then it is the CD/DVD that is faulty, however if it works, then you can try to hook up a external drive, the laptop may defualt to it after trying all the other options i.e. CD rom drive, HDD etc

My laptop cant find my new dvd rom


It might be an operating system problem, something in the registry.
If you use windows, update to the last service pack to fix the registry, and install the DVD driver before mounting it
if you use vista try to download the driver before installing the DVD. Still many devices does not work with vista.
Thanks for using fixya…good luck and don’t forget to rate this…
cheers

My laptop dvd burner not working


You can try uninstalling the drive in the device manager and letting windows reinstall the device. If that doesn't do it, try to boot from the drive with a Windows CD. If it does boot it is more than likely a Windows issue. If not then you may need to replace the drive. I am guessing it is still under warranty so call the manufacturer and check warranty status. If you do have to have it replaced I would suggest backing up your data as they don't guarantee your data will be safe and they may exchange your machine.

Cheers

Toshiba Satellite m45-s355 wont enter the bios setup


I removed the hard disk and then that way the system recognized the CD drive with the Windows installation CD inserted.

When the installation wizard started, I inserted the hard disk on its place and then it could be formatted and the windows and drivers installation ended successfully.

The odd part is that the M45-S355 shuts down after five to ten minutes of use. It does not happen in safe mode. Should this have to be with the processor´s fan?

Thank you.

Victor.

Write speed problems with my DVD-R...PLEASE HELP!!!


alright its time to fix tis...

First...I don't understand what the check box in the drive's recording properties is asking "Enable CD recording on this drive"?????
It is another Feature that is provided for your DVD burner harware device,(you will understand indepth once you come across some thing to use that feature on Your Own)


Second...does anyone know what burning software works best for this burner????
Nero is one of the Most commonly used Burners and there are Trial Versions available for Free for you to download and use it.
besides that you can try softwares like Roxio,SONIC and ay more...


Third...is it a DLA file I need, or firmware, or do I have to do something in Windows to fix this problem????
I dont think you will need any of those because the 24X is the Max speed for your DVD burner you can adjust the Burning speed by being able to Adjust the setting from you DVD software(which entirely Vary from Software to software)
