    My DVD drive works intermittently, and when it fails, the system just plain doesn't see the media in the drive.

    I ran the TOSHIBA diagnostic test on this drive and it FAILED.

    I have a an inop cd/dvd combo drive that grinds and does not work. It is a Matshita UJ-811B. I understand there have been historical problems with this model. What will fit as an alternative in my Satellite P-15 S479 PC Notebook?

    It grinds as if it's loading up the cd and then stops. When loaded, the drive does not show up in My Computer.

    My Toshiba P25-S5093 won't recognize my DVD player (even durring the bootup process where the computer POSTS. Tried different drives like UJ-811B, UJ820B. It worked on a different Toshiba Satellite P25, but not mine. Get the same things (grinding, starting and spinning), without it recognizing the disk.

How do i reinstall my cdrw/dvd as i got a code 39?


Hi There.

I can understand the issue. When you say got an error code 39 then i'd say its an issue with the registry files. Try deleting the upper filters and lower filters. It should work for you. If any clarification revert

OS is Windows XP Professional CD drive will not reconize a DVD+R for recording data. The drive is a HL-D-ST CDRW/DVD GCC4244.


A CDRW/DVD is a CD-burner and DVD-ROM combined unit. It is not meant to record DVDs only CDs.

It will not recognise a blank DVD as it is unable to read any file system.

My Matshita UJDA 750 DVD/CDRW wont recognize a blank DVD discs. How ever it does read both CDs and DVDs and only burns CDs.... please help


Are you trying to burn a dvd? If so from the spec you gave in the problem description your drive will burn cds(CDRW) but will only play dvds(DVD). If it stated DVDRW then you would be able to burn DVDs as in the CDRW.

HL-DT-ST DVDRAM GMA-4082N. Can not write to DVD


The DVD -R +R means that you can read these types of DVDs that have been created elsewhere, it doesn't mean you can write to your DVD under the format of -R or +R. The CD is a CDRW which means you can read and write to CDs.

I don't think that a factory Satellite P100 has the ability to write to either DVD -R or +R, but to only CDs. I have a P200 that has a DVD -R +R/CDRW and it can't write DVDs. These DVDs you put in are for read only. My Toshiba A215 can but it's a DVDRW/CDRW.

DVD CDRW WILL NOT PLAY SOUND


Check to make sure your sound settings in control panel are not: on mute or set to the minimum levels. Does sound work for everything else but your dvd player???

DVD-CDRW doesn't read anymore..need instructions to install a new one


I had this same problem and fixed it. In many cases there is NO NEED TO GET an new combo if the old one isn't physically broken. All you need to do is run an optical drive fix. This fixes the registry filters and should handle your problem immediately.

The CDRW/DVDRW has reached it's end of life or it's defective. You'll have to replace it.
