Question about Toshiba Satellite A60 Notebook

1 Answer

DVD drive not playing DVD's, but is playing CD's

Until last week my Toshiba A60-672 DVD-R/-RW drive, would play DVD's & CD's perfectly. Suddenly the drive will only read CD's.

When you insert a DVD the LED on the drive flickers for a couple of seconds, and then constantly glows

Any ideas?

Dvd driver does not play or burn blank dvds compaq r4000 but it will play dvds & cd its got dvdrw/r rw dvd+r dl n the driver


Try another DVD-RW drive because it sounds like the laser is going bad. Burning requires alot of power from the laser. Playing DVD or playing cd's doesn't require much so thats why it would play those.

L305D-S5930 dvd wont burn documents to a dvd disc


You need a program, like nero.
if that doesn't work then put a DVD in the drive & see if the computer picks it up in the my computer.
the first thing that goes in a CD/DVD-RW drive is the DVD heads, thats if your drive is a CD/DVD-RW.
Have a look on the front of the drive tray, if it say CD-RW DVD ROM then it doesn't burn DVD's it only plays them.

DVD-RW PROBLEM


Your CD might be damaged. Have a closer look at the CD holding it against a light and you will find where it is scratched.If you are able to access it on a different PC drive. please back up the data on that PC and make a fresh copy of the data on a different CD. You may lose some information BTW.

Cant play movies from my toshibia laptop


Hi:
There are several reasons why a movie won't play, so I will run a few suggestions by you:

Hopefully ;you have a DVD drive or a DVD RW drive ?

If you insert a DVD or CD into the drive, your computer should recognize that a disk is inserted. If not the drive might be bad

You must have some sort of Software installed to make movies play, such as WinDVD, or PowerDVD
