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".
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. Howard G

Re: 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..
a 6ya Technician can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Impossible, since your device _reads_ CDs/DVDs, but does not _write_ either CD nor DVD.
Do you have a USB memory-stick (holding 4Gbytes) ?
If so, copy the files to the memory-stick,
and take the memory-stick to your friend's computer,
presuming that his/her computer has a DVD-writer.
That DVD can be _read_ on your computer.
Are you sure your drive is a dvd writer? And if it is a writer, is it a dvd -r or a dvd +r or a dvd -r/+r? Depending on the way the dvd writes to the disk, you will need to buy specific media for the writer to write to. DVD -R cannot write to DVD +R and vice versa, and even if the drive is a DVD -R/+R, they seldom write to both media with any degree of regularity or of good quality. Most dual dvd writers seem to prefer DVD -R.
Oh yeah, one other thing, if your dvd is a writer, you should check out the drive properties in my computer to verify it is set to record. If you see the recording tab, select it and verify that the box is checked to enable cd recording on this device.
Hi, first of all, I'd check if you have the problem with CD/DVDs burned (written on a CD/DVD writer) or you have it also with original CD/DVDs,
which would be weird.
Depending on your finding to the above point I'd do one thing or another, but to me does not look like a driver problem. I'd check with Toshiba support if there's a new firmware for your drive, this does improve the media the device can read and correct problems like the one you mention.
To know the fimware version you're using, open device manager and go find your drive, right click on it and choose details tab. Normally the firmware revision is the number at the end of the instance.
Good luck mate !
