Question about Toshiba SR C8102 (SRC8102-TA) CD-RW Burner

2 Answers

I have an internal Toshiba CD-R/RW SR-C8102. I have uninstalled and reinstalled it. That did get the icon back on "My Computer." And I removed the drive and put it back in. However, it still does not read CD's.

    You're way over my head. I don't even know what you mean by "windows key R" or how to change registry.

  • dsjones654 Aug 29, 2010

    You're way over my head. I don't know what you mean by the "windows key +R" or how to change registry. I need more step-by-step instructions.

  • dsjones654 Aug 29, 2010

    I have received 3 emails that all give the same instructions. The problem is that I don't know what the instructions mean.

    I definitely want to express my appreciation. When I got the more detailed instructions, it worked! I will also definitely recommend FixYa.com.

Press windows key +R key so you can see run then type in run "devmgmt.msc" then press ok so you can see device manager uninstall cd/dvd drive drivers then it automatic install it's drivers.
Then check.
Also you need to change registry for that type in run "regedit" then press ok then you can see registry editor then locate below key.

If the BIOS is reading it as an atapi drive or shows cd then the problem is usually hardware which means replacing the drive.
You can buy a new dvd/cd rw for $30 or a blue ray for a bit more.

If you listen to the drive it may be making more noise than it did or it may make a chattering or even a thumping sound. It may have been showing errors more and more before it stopped reading the drive. It probably started off by an error in burning a cd. What normally fails in the drives is actually the heads going out of alignment. The drive itself is actually fine but the heads are not quite sure where they are and don;t have the accuracy anymore to work. We used to realign these when the drives were worth it but these days you just replace it.
