Problem with toshiba satellite A 105 dvd rom

My dvd rom works fine usually and i'm able to play dvds on it
but recently i was trying to import a scratched cd onto iTunes and it started making noises and wouldn't upload

now whenever i try to play a dvd the dvd works fine, but the sound is messed up and the movie plays reaally slow. so im guessing the scratched cd messed up my dvd rom...

i know that there's nothing wrong with the sound system because if i play anything from iTunes or the internet, the sound is fine. and this is happening to all the dvds im putting in...
the dvd rom doesnt look scratched or dirty..but i'm guessing something's wrong..help!

Toshiba satellite a300 wont load dvd but will play cd. Was working fine yesterday (dvds work ok on my other laptop)


Try to upgrade the driver for the DVD player. This is done in the Device Manager.
Upgrade or reinstall the software used to play the DVD.
One of the best players for DVD and all sorts of other media is the VLC player - a free download.

My laptop used to play dvds but no longer works, cd's still work fine but dvds wont play, but still come up in computer.


02bc6b7.jpg Do follow steps,
1) change your DVD disk :- if it's work, don't worry about the driver.
2) go to Device Manager & check the DVD/CD ROM driver's property, check weather it has been disabled.
3) change your OS or Upgrade current OS
4) if above steps are not worked, then you have to bring your laptop to a service provider...

if you are in warranty period don't remove any parts of it, they will replaced a another DVD driver

After I reinstalled my pc, the toshiba dvd-rom (sd-c2502) only plays cds, not dvds.


Try re-installing your the driver for your dvd rom. Then try to put different dvds and check if it can read from your drive. If problem remains, I suspected it's your dvd rom is faulty

Play dvd nothing - play s/d card (video) sound but no picture.


You need to update the dvd softwear. Check the default settings for playback of media,if it is set to windows media it won't work if you hav'nt installed the correct updates. Choose the Toshiba dvd player as the default player and it should work. If you prefer windows media then you can get the updated codecs from ' free-codecs.com ' Easier still,try uninstalling your windows media player and installing windows media 11, this will usually resolve the problem.

Dvd drive on laptop


You need a piece of software to play DVD movies. Is this an actual DVD movie, or is it an MP4 or WMV/WMA file?

Usually you need something like WinDVD to play a DVD movie. I don't think Media Player can play those.

Did you recently install another piece of software that might have affected your ability to play DVDs?

DVD rom drive


It sounds like the drive itself is faulty. Since you've reformatted, it obviously isn't a software problem. CDs and DVDs are read by two different lasers so its not uncommon for one disc not to be read yet the other is just fine which seems to be the case. A new one can be purchased for under $40. http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010100005+1036508690&name=Slim+Combo+Drive
