Question about Toshiba Cameras
SOURCE: will not run
I had the same problem with my machine, there is nothing you personally can do to fix it. You'll have to find a service tech who can work on it to solve the problem.

Try to use another freeware burnprogram like burnatonce to create an
other CD, just to check if the Combo-drive is writing properly.
If you don't get any error messages like the ones from Toshiba program, then the problem is the toshiba software.
If other burn programs find difficulties in accessing CDs or DVD-Rs
then the drive itself giving you a hard time and might seek for replacement.
You may find the toshiba exchange parts too expensive and the internal drive is still reading disks properly, then think about an external dvd-rw drive, but make sure to buy a highspeed USB one (or even firewire, if the laptop has the port), else it will run rather slowly.

Your camera was designed to be fully CF compliant, but it was designed long before 4GB cards were available so your problem is likely to be that the camera cannot handle a card of that large a capacity.
I've checked the Olympus servicing manual but unfortunately it doesn't state a maximum CF capacity and there have been no relevant firmware updates to extend CF compatibility.
When your camera was released back in 2003 the largest capacity CF card was 1GB so I suggest that you don't go above that size. You'll also be wasting your money on any more than a regular Sandisk Ultra as the camera cannot take advantage of the faster data transfer rates of later cards, I'm not even certain that it can utilise the speed advantage of an Ultra over a really basic model, but it won't cause the camera to throw it's toys out of the pram either.
I hope that you've found my reply to be of use and ask in return only that you return the goodwill and rate my answer.

You have tried all possible solutions and troubleshooting.
My Suggestion is to check the Warranty of the Hard Disk and get it replaced. this possible shows a mismatch between the Laptop and hard drive.

Hello, welcome to Fixya!
Was this player playing previously? And how long have you been using this player? I suspect the lens of the player. Once the lens of the player becomes weak, it won't play discs any longer.
The first thing my mind goes to, is the lens. The lens id responsible for reading/loading data on discs. So if the lens is unable to read the disc, there is no way the player is going to play the disc.
To confirm if actually its a laser problem, insert an Audio CD into the player and see if will play. If it plays, then obviously, your laser (lens) is weak. But if it doesn't play Audio CD, then it might still be the laser (lens) or probably, a mechanism problem.
Get a lens cleaner, use it to clean the lens. If that doesn't solve the problem, get a screw driver, open the player's cover so that you can gain access to the lens, use a cotton board to clean the surface of the lens. This should clean dust or dirt that might be on the lens.
If non of the above solves the problem, then know that you need to replace the laser to a brand new one.
To replace the lens, remove the bad laser, use it as a sample to get exactly the same type and do the replacement. Note that replacing a laser (lens) needs a professional touch, so if you cannot replace the laser, get it to a repairman to fix it for you.
Once this us done, your player will play all DVD discs again.
