Windows XP requires you to install a separate MPEG2 decoder. This mean that you need a program like Cyberlink's PowerDVD or Intervideo's WinDVD. All laptops would have come with this, and and DVD drive also comes with this software.

Teac dw-224e-a dvd rom will not read dvd +r -rw data


Here's the newest driver for your burner. Go to Control Panel, then Device Manager, then click on the + symbol next to disk drives, and double click on the TEAC device. Click the Driver tab and press Update Driver, then choose the 'Let me find the driver' option, and navigate to the folder where you unzipped the file to. Double click and Install. Reboot.

For burning, I would recommend Nero, Alcohol 120% or ImgBurn.

Good luck and Season's Greetings!

Teac DW224E-A


I have the same problem. It says my drive is working fine, but it never seems to read any discs I put in it. This may sound a bit silly, but I found a bit of a work around just to be able to use the drive at all. I have music player downloaded called JetAudio (it's free, check download.com), and in the main viewing window you can choose to play from a Disc or File. I click the disc button and wait for it to say "data cd" or it'll play a music cd if that's what's in your drive. Then I just open the drive folder, and the files show up. It's strange, but it's been working for me for awhile. I do notice a couple small hiccups occassionally as it reads the disc, but overall works pretty well. Better than nothing I guess. Hope this helps as a temporary fix.

Teac DW-224E CD-rw/ DVD rom in Toshiba Satellite Pro M15-405


Hello konagold, Yes there may be some ways to test it. Let's try the following. When you open your laptop, open the cd rom's tray and check to see where the lens mechanism is positioned. Normally it should be near the main central motor. Try to turn off the laptop, but leave the tray opened. When the laptop is turned off, use one one hand to move the lens assembly away from the main motor. Move it to the middle of the distance from the center to the edge. Carefull not to touch the lens when you do this. Now place a bootable cd (like the ones that come with your operating system or anything else you can find) and start the laptop back again and instruct it to boot from the cd-rom. It should make it try to boot from there. If this fails, the cd-rom is indeed damaged and most likely will need to be replaced. You may try to clean the lens assembly but I can't be sure this will help, based on your problem. Please run these instructions first, then reply to me in order to see what's next to do. Bogdan

My CD/Dvd drive is not working


You can try this, Go to my computer>properties>hardware>device manager and look down the list for your cd/dvd drives and click the '+' sign then highlight your dvd drive and right click to delete. Restart the pc and windows will find the drive again automatically and install the drivers. Try using it again, hopefully fault free.
