If I were you I would go up on toshiba's site and down load the updated firm ware for the laptop.

Select which model A105 you have, Click on show results, click on downloads, and search the 1-4 pages of downloads for the dvd/dvd rom updates. Download install, and rerboot to take effect.

My dvd player on recognizes original dvds but wont read any burnt dvds...WHY???


most of the laptop dvd drives have slower reading speed(about 2x) and writing speed(about 24x) compare to desktop pc's(about 8x and 52x respectively).
ur problem might have occured if the writing speed by which the cd was burnt might not be compatible with ur dvd player.
try playing dvds which were burnt using laptop dvd writers.
also try changing the modes in which the dvds are burnt.

The drive wont read any burnt dvds, and ones that have stuff on it show up as blank cds. itll read actual dvd games though just fine.


The actual dvd were also burned somewhere, did you burn your stuff correctly, try playing those cd on another computer.
CLEAN, WASH YOUR DVDs CAREFULLY DON'T DESTROY THEM.
It doesn't look like your dvd drive is faulty.
Please feel free to ask me for further information.

Problem with the dve player


You may have to check the options for the player. Some DVD players cannot play formats other than regular DVDs. You can check the options to see if it can be put in a different mode from the normal one, such as progressive scan, which can help it to read DVDs better in some ways. You can also set it up to accept more types than just DVDs, but also DVD-Rs and VCDs. I cannot tell you, without fiddling around with it, whether you will need to take it in to a shop, but that is an option. Once you see about adjusting some of the settings, see if it won't play a DVD.

Open tray error


You need to either replace the drive with a working drive or replace the laser within your current drive. If you change drives you will first need to obtain your dvd-key and then flash it into your new drives firmware.

Its only cd writer burner and can only that it can read dvd disc also. That is why its called combo. But burning blank dvd it can't. But if you want buy some dvdburner too.

Disc error message when load DVD


Are you loading to play or to record?
Commercial DVDs should play.
DVDs for recording may not be recognized by your drive. First make sure that the disc is blank. You must insert a blank disc of the proper format: DVD-R or RW, DVD+R or RW. Even with the proper format, some brands may not behave the same way as other brands.

Not reading some dvds


Could be it does not like the brand of dvd discs, if they are dvd burnt discs. You need to be more specific, is it reading any dvds at all??? If it has no issues with cds, it may not be the driver, but if it is playing up, it would not hurt to try unistalling it and reinstalling also with an updated driver. good luck lilacgerry xxx

DVD-RW not recognising blank disk


Did you try a DVD firmware update? Some dvds need new firmware to reconize some DVDs

Can't read some burnt dvds


Try updateing your drivers firmware.
also cleaning the lens with a lens cleaning cd/dvd kit.

if that doesnt solve the problem then the lens system would need to be replaced -> better to buy a new drive.
