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,

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.

Stopped recognising dvd drive


Hi there. There may not be anything wrong it. CD/DVD drives use Class Filters, instead of the usual drivers that we would associate most computer hardware with. These are installed when the Operating System is setup, as Class Filters only add functionality of the drive with the Operating System. They are also available from the motherboard manufacturer's website, (these are known as Motherboard Drivers and Chipset Drivers). They can also be obtained via the Toshiba website here:

http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp?service=UK

All you need to do, is select your notebook type and model. Then scroll down till you find either the DVD_RAM driver and/or Chipset Driver that go with your Operating System. Download them and install. This should correct the problem.

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
