Computer does not recognise CD/DVD drive

I own a 6 month old Toshiba Satellite A100 notebook and the operating system no longer recognises the CD/DVD drive. It doesn't register as one of the pre-installed hardware. I need to rectify this problem asap. Please help?

Then i think you will have to remove the driver and try with another one.

the drive may have gone dead.

    That seems a bit strange. It is possible that the drive has failed. Does the cd drive still open/ power up. will it spin a disc or anything? If not I would assumed a failed drive, It is not a super costly repair. You can find a repair technician and it shouldn't be more then an hours work for it and the drive shouldn't be horribly expensive. The CD write/dvd reader drive is 50$ the DVDRW drive is 130$ approx.
    Hope this helps.
    Thanks,
    lee

The drive is bad and needs to be replaced. The latency you experience in loading XP when the drive is connected is because the computer is attempting to recognize the drive and it cannot.

Memory upgrade for Toshiba Satellite A100 - PSAA9A


this free cleaner called ccleaner is really good and gets your system cleaned up, free of any spyware and free updates.

 

But the memory problem is the fact that your notebook may only recognise 2 of the same size memory sticks, so take out the old memory and try the new in on it's own, if no boot at all then the memory is not compatable with your system.

 

You can go to the crucial web site and see what the tool finds as to the type of memory you can fit

Cd dvd drive only recognises cds


Just check if the region code has not been locked. If you cannot play DVD's at all, first clean the lens, then install a good DVD player like cyberlink etc and then try. If the issue is related to Data DVD's as well, change the media that you are using, eg change the media type to Samsung, Sony and check. Lemme know if it works.
