20 Most Recent Toshiba SD R2312 CD-RW/DVD-ROM (Combo) Burner Questions & Answers


In my limited experience cd burning software isn't very stable and causes software conflicts with Windows; uninstalling doesn't help very much because burning software tends to displace some Windows components that sort of gets lost in the process.

If you really know what you are doing it might be possible to repair Windows but at my level I find formatting and reloading everything is the best option.

I find Nero to be the greatest offender.
Windows Media Player should be able to burn a cd; it might be long-winded but it is fairly reliable...

Make sure the players can play the format you are using to burn. My surround sound system will play most audio but my car system will only play an origional cd format (AU) not mp3 or wav for example. Also some systems will not play cd-rw but will play cd-r and some won't play anything but origional cd's.

There is no such thing as a specific driver for cd/dvd readers/burners.
The operating system itself has suitable drivers for those devices.

However, it can be that the driver for the IDE/ATAPI-controllers is malfunctioning.
If you have chipset drivers for the mainboard, reinstall them. Otherwise remove in
the Device Manager the driver of the used IDE/ATAPI-controller and let the Device
Manager search for the Microsoft Windows drivers and install them.

Seems like the DVD drive went bad.
My advice is try another DVD drive and install it on the same laptop. just to make sure the laptop is ok.

Hello,
Trying other burning software is a good Idea, windows itself has native cd burning support,through media player for example. It won't be a codec issue unless you are converting from an MP3 or similar.

Try burn with deep burning

Download it from following bellow link

http://www.deepburner.com/?r=products&pr=deepburner

I personally don't like codec packs, they fill your system with codecs you never use and aren't as up to date as the individual codecs.

I always install Koepis's latest Xvid Codec and AC3 filter and that's it unless something fails to play, then I find the relevant codec.

The question regarding DMA is also worth following up, from device manager you need to check the properties of the IDE controller the drive is connected to - can take a bit of trial and error to find the right one. It should be set to "DMA if available" and the current transfer mode should be something like "DMA mode 2" ( depending on the drive ) If it is in PIO mode that will cause issues.

Hope this helps.

If you are helped you can rate on the 4 thumbs and leave a short comment,because,
this is the free side and I can get the chance, to help people like you .
Thanks for using fixya .

HI ,
1° It could come from the cd . Try with other models .
2° Go to my computer and right click on dvd device and click on properties then click on recording see if your decice is checked for burning.
3° Try restoring your computer to an earlier date , when your drive used to work fine .
4° Connect an external device and see what happens . If it works , your burner needs to be replaced .
Best regards .

Go to http://www.toshibadirect.com, then at the top click on Support, and Tech Support Center, then on Downloads. Find your product in the windows, and you will be directed to the page where you can download any and all drivers you need.

Hello Gary, hi, that error means failure of the burner software ROM (corrupted), you have to return the laptop back to the manufacturer for reprogramming, you can also get a surplus DVD drive. Or buy a USB external DVD drive, this is a better alternative.

Looks like this is a pure hardware error and the Rom needs a service. Still you may try to reinstall the driver and the burning software. This could give results if you are lucky enough not to have a hardware issue.

Good Luck.

hey,

the drivers come with windows, you shouldn't need a driver.
If you look into device manager and the drive has a error code about driver, for example code 39

If your current device is CD-RW/DVD-ROM, then any CD-RW/DVD-RW device that you can purchase will _physically_ replace and will fit into the space occupied by your current device.
