Re: DVD DRIVE NOT BEING RECONISED
This is a solution for error code 41 but it may assist you with your problem.
A driver was loaded but Windows cannot find the device. This error occurs when Windows does not detect a non-Plug and Play device.
If the device was removed, uninstall the driver, install the device, and then click Scan for hardware changes to reinstall the driver. If the hardware was not removed, obtain a new or updated driver for the device.
If the device is a non-Plug and Play device, a newer version of the driver might be needed. To install non-Plug and Play devices, use the Add Hardware wizard. Click Performance and Maintenance on Control Panel, click System, and on the Hardware tab, click Add Hardware Wizard.
On the General Properties tab of the device, click Troubleshoot to start the Troubleshooting Wizard.

Well; there is no real answer to this as computer manufacturers receive a variety of parts. The easiest way is to remove the DVD drive; you can find videos on how to remove it on You Tube. Your drive may be a different manufacturer or version if compared with another Toshiba PSLB8U.
Do you want to download a DVD movie to your laptop from the Internet?
If you do you most likely there is copyright issues.
If you have a DVD drive on your laptop, you can put a DVD disc in this drive and play the movie from your laptop, you don't need to copy the movie to your laptop.
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.
Well, when you insert a disc and go to My Computer then to the DVD drive itself, does it show that a disc is in the drive, if it does does and you open the drive does it show the contents of the drive! If so then you are having a software issue regarding the decoder!
