    I called Toshiba. My laptop is still under warranty and they suggested a local authorized dealer. I think you're right. Another friend who is pretty tech savvy said the same thing. Thank you for your help.

Ok i asked before if my drive will burn both dvd and cd. the answer was yes. but when i installed the drive and ran my dvd creator program. it said this drive is dvd read only.


Hi mikey7420 ,


The drive name itself is the clue to know whether it can burn dvds or not.

  • In your case it's a CD-RW (read and write or rewritable) and DVD-ROM (Read only memory and not read and write or rewritable as in the case of CD)
  • Perhaps the one who told you did not understand your question properly , and understood it , in the sense that it can read CDs as well as DVDs , as far as Dvd-ROM drives are concerned many shopkeepers who are especially new working in the shop just make a guess and answer our question which could lead to this misunderstanding or incorrect information being passed on.
  • So the next time you buy a DVD drive which should have a read and write functionality as well , then look up for a CD_RW,DVD-RW drive.
  • Also remember that DVD-RW drive can by default read and write CDs as well , but it's not true for CD drives..
  • So usually a DVD-RW drive can read and write Cds as well as DVDs but a CD-RW drive can either read or read and write a DVD depending on whether it's a DVD-ROM or DVD-RW.
Hope this helps.

Have a Micro Innovations Model IC445C webcam that came with a CD, the CD doesn't do anything, now what


Hello Ruebesams, hi, here are the steps you need to do and check:
  1. Have your CD/DVD drive checked, try other CDs and see if it can read other CDs.
  2. Is your webcam CD a DVD? Placing a DVD on a CD drive will not do anything. you need a DVD drive to read DVD disk.
  3. Ask a friend if you can use his or her computer to copy the content of the CD or DVD to a flash drive, so that you can install the driver using a flash drive on your computer.
  4. If your driver disk still cannot be read by any other computer, I suggest you bring it back to your dealer and have it checked.

Does the toshiba sd 2502 , can it burn cds


It is a DVD ROM drive which stands for DVD Read Only Memory. In other words, this drive is meant to only PLAY DVDs and CDs but NOT save data to them.

To burn CDs you need a CD burner. Burners are of 3 types:

CD writer only burns and reads CDs.

Combo drive reads CDs and DVDs but only burns CDs.

Super drive burns and reads from CDs and DVDs.

As you go higher in functionality, the price also increases. Check your needs before you plan to buy one. Also compare prices of all the drives. Note: burn-able media costs are separate.

My dvd drive cant read some cds


either the cds are too scratched or have finger prints or marks on them and need a clean or you need to get a laser lense cleaner to try and clean the lense on your cd / dvd drive and if that does not work then I would test the discs that do not work in that dvd drive in another computer and if that works then may need to replace the drive

My samsungsd616tdvd drive cannot play or read dvd-rw cds.


Please note that the formats of DVD and CD are quite different. Whereas a DVD drive can handle both DVD and CD, a CD drive can only handle cd formats. Furthermore, a drive that reads both formats does not necessarily mean it can handle the writing aspect ok. You need a drive that is capable of writing/burning DVD. Most drives that come along with pcs can only write CDs but able to read both. So check your drive to see whether or not it can write on DVDs ok. Good luck

Suddenly stopped reading cds but reads dvds


Could be a bad drive, as DVD lasers are a little different than just CD lasers. The laser may be bad for one, but the other can work. I had this issue, had to buy a new drive.
