Question about Toshiba SD R6012 (SDR6012-TA) DVD-RW Burner

2 Answers

Toshiba DVD-ROM SD 6012

My CD/DVD writer should burn CD's and DVD's. It burns CD's fine but will not burn DVD's. According to Toshiba this is a known problem and they say it can be fixed by downloading a new driver. I did that but the file will not execute. When i try it says "could not be found CD - Drive for this programme".
I also found through another forum that you need to alter the settings for the device to switch from CD to DVD. I did that but there was no effect at all.
Any help welcome.

    The drive will not recognize blank dvds. I've tried removing and reimstalling different software (roxio, Nero) to alleviate to no avail

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..

Be sure you are using dvd-rw not dvd+rw. This drive will not write or read +.

My toshiba u 400 12p's cd rom working but not burning. burning time comes error code 380381 26 2A031000, what can i do?


Looks like this is a pure hardware error and the Rom needs a service. Still you may try to reinstall the driver and the burning software. This could give results if you are lucky enough not to have a hardware issue.

Good Luck.

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).

Unable to burn dvd using LG DVD ROM


your DVD Rom drive cannot burn DVDs because it is not a DVD burner, DVD Rom drives are different from DVD writers, if you want to burn DVD you must buy a DVD burner/writer.

Dvd writer does not burn on raw file system cds


What OS are you using? I doubt it is the burner. I have the same model burner and it burns everything I try to burn just fine. It works on both my XP SP2 installation and the OS X86 Leopard 10.5.5 installation. I have burned video, data and bootable OS DVDs and CDs in both operating systems.

It may just be Nero. You could try Alcohol 120% or Ultra ISO.
