Toshiba Satellite A105 PC Notebook, DVD/CD Drive. The Drive is reading the DVD but not the CD. How do I change the settings for the drive to read both

You can't just change it from pio to udma. Go to Control Panel, System,Hardware,Device Manager, then expand IDE ATA/ATAPI, then right click on Primary IDE and select uninstall. Do the same for secondary IDE. Then just reboot your system, and it will autodetect all IDE devices. After that when you check, you should not have any devices in PIO, and your burner should work correctly. If not, stick it in a hyperbaric chamber for 2 days and see if that helps. smile.gif __________________

The drive is faulty. You need to replace the drive. The reason the DVD still works is because a combo drive has 2 different lasers; one for the CD and one for the DVD. So the CD laser is faulty.
