DVD read problem

Hi,
I have Toshiba Satellite M45. The problem is the reading from DVD (movies) from CD-ROM does not smooth. I mean, when I play the movie from the DVD, the motion in the picture runs for one second, and stop for another seconds. It seems no problem when I play CD (songs).

I am currently using Windows XP as the operating system.

The dvd rom doesnt work. What is the replacement part nr


You do not need a part number ..just order a dvd writer ..with the same bus as the one you have ..
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Toshiba-Satellite-M45-S331-DVD-RW-RAM-Drive-burner-/220775992974
this is to make an idea..
I suggest to reinstall the operation system and see if ti reads a boot-able disk ..when you try to do it ..If it does it means the drive is not gone ..but just has issues in windows and reinstalling the operation system will fix the problem ..
Even if the drive letter disappeared in windows it may be still functional

Thak you for yor query

To ensure the CD/DVD is clean please try booting from a known working PC, from what you are describing it may not be your CD drive

If the same thing happnes on another PC then it is the CD/DVD that is faulty, however if it works, then you can try to hook up a external drive, the laptop may defualt to it after trying all the other options i.e. CD rom drive, HDD etc

I can't use my CD/DVD-ROM.. i try to put a disc on it, it appears D: is not accessible and the request could not be performed because of an I/O device error. Please help me. i dont know what to do. thanks


Check you system hardware and see if it see the CD/DVD device. check to see if you have the drives and software loaded for that device. Go to toshiba web site and check for latest drives and patches. Some of there CD/DVD drives had upgrade software to make the DVD work right make sure you have everything you need loaded. Then put a blank CD in and try writing to it using there software package. if you can write and read a CD you just brunt then the CD is working. Next try reading a DVD movie see if it plays.

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.
