Hi,
With the Toshiba Satellite L305-S5907 Laptop, you can put a 500GB hard drive and up to 2 TB hard drive. The only requirements are to make sure it has a SATA connector and is 2.5" Size.

My DVD+/-R drive wont write


If the reading is also bad, then you have a hardware problem. Try to get a lens-cleaning disk, or clean the lens yourself VERY softly. If that won't work, you'll have to replace it. 

Be sure to have the "write" or closely to that option selected in your burning software. You may only simulate the write...

My DVD burner stopped working...but will still copy cd


Hello,

Please try to clean your DVD Disk Drive using a CD or DVD Disk Cleaner to clean the laser lens of the DVD Disk Drive like dust, dirt and other small particles that causes the lens hard to read or eventually not read the laser lens. IF you don't have a Disk cleaner you can find it in any computer shop or video shop in your place.

Thanks

DVD CD-R drive does not recognize a blank CD on toshiba sattelite


Try this before you enter disk.
  1. setup software or files to transfer when prompted to enter CDR, then place in drive.
  2. Or open my computer, select cd drive right click select, format disk. When prompt comes up for disk insert CDR.
Some systems have trouble with other manufactured formatted disk.

Reinstallation with recovery disk


I've had myself almost same problem in my 5200-801, but with reading DVD's.
It was allready the second dvd/cd drive replaced by Toshiba.
Then I replaced the DVD/CD drive myself because I ran out of guarantee, with one bought from the internet and much cheaper than the original one. A multi drive which even do the lightscribe job and that one works very well.

Toshiba RD-XS35 DVD Recorder


Toshiba tech support for this one. If it is not accepting the cleaner disk - you have to wonder if something is already intere or do you mean will not rune the disk? Inwhich case it is a drive failure and needs replacement[of drive if available] or whole machine. Contact Toshiba first though it may be a known issue.
