It depends on what you have in your disc player that tells it what it is if nothing then it shows CD player if you put in a DVD then it will show DVD drive, go to start click on my computer then right click on properties then go to hardware then device manager then click on your CD/DVD ROM drive and right click on it and click update drivers if that does not work then you may have the Wrong DVDs I have had that happen where I had DVD- and it was supposed to be DVD+ also the right protect could be on what your trying to record and you would have to use your program to un-protect it to record. hope this helps. Thanks for using fix-ya

Toshiba dvd R/RW =/- TS-H552D/GAAH just quit on me. It will not recognize anything I put in it even though the light and the front flashes like it is trying to. Yesterday I was copying me cd collection and...


Since it is not reading any of the discs it usually means it is driver issue or the drive it self. Easiest way to see is it driver is to uninstall it and restart your pc. Once it is up it will tell you it has found new hardware and it will install it. Once it says it has been installed try to read a cd again, one you know it works for sure. When you go to my computer if you can see the drive it self it means it is not connection issue. To uninstall it:Right click on My computerand click manage. Once in manage on left pane select Device Manager. In the next window that opens on right side you will have all the devices that are installed on your pc. One of them will say DVD/CD Rom drives if you have a DVD reader or just CD Rom. If you click on little arrow next to it it will show you what is there, You gonna right click on your DVD/CD drive from here and click uninstall. It will ask are you sure and just say yes. Once it is done restart your pc and once restarted give it about 3-5min to finish installing the drivers. If this does not work you might want to replace the reader it self. They are pretty cheap these days, like in Walmart, BestBuy or any other store that sells PC parts. Hope this helps and good luck.

Dvd/cd rom drive cant read any disc


cd/dvd drives are cheep, I would suggest in device manager uninstall device driver and re-install them with scan for new hardware. If thats not working goto ebay and get a cd/rw dvd reader try to pay a max of $20.00 you should find many in that price range.. and when re-installing make sure the jumper is set to the same as the one you currently have..

Dvd-rom trouble


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 !
