I just fixed a problem I had with my cd-rom where it wasn't burning my cd's. I downloaded the ASPI Driver for Windows from here and it fixed my problem. Without that driver, your cd-rom doesn't get fully reconized by the system basically. Let me know if this helps.

Hi,

I believe we need drivers for CD ROM if both laptop are of same models. Can you plese insert the faulty CD ROM to your laptop and verify whether it is working or not. If yes, then you'll have take your daughter's laptop to service center. Could be a problem with mother board.

Please come back and give ratings to my solution if this turns to be helpful for you or also if you need more clarification.
Thnx

Cd-rom will not work


Hello Mike,

My name is ArmyMason. IF you are getting driver requests for you CD-ROM, its because the CD_ROM Drive is broken. I would suggest taking the CD-ROM out and replacing it with a different one to verify my solution. See CD-ROMs should ask for drivers, they should automatically be detected by the Operating System, Driver request for such devices are a normal sign that the device is broken.

Thanks,
ArmyMason

Cd/rom not working


Try deleting it in the device manager and then reboot your computer to see if it will detect it, then when it asks, point it to the driver.

My Cd-Rom/DVD-rom don't work. It doesn't open any folder. I thought I have problems with drivers: SCSIVAX DVD/CD-ROM SCSI CdrOM DEVICE DVD-ROM SD-R2102 TOSHIBA LAPTOP SATELLITE 5005-S507 THANKS, OSCAR


According to the Toshiba website, the scsi cd-rom/dvd-rom does not require a driver to operate, but the driver for the scsi controller card it plugs into may need to be reinstalled or updated. Visit the following link, and go to the section labeled scsi cdrom/dvdrom. At the bottom of this section there are two links to websites where you may be able to find the drivers for your scsi controller card.

Cd rom


Where can I get the driver for my CD-ROM?
Visit our hardware download section to obtain a generic CD-ROM driver (oakcdrom.sys) and mscdex.exe if needed.
If you are looking for a specific driver for your CD-ROM drive or a Firmware update, please see our CD-ROM driver page.
