Hi Docpayton,  Sounds like you are having hardware connection issues.  First, i would try right clicking on 'my computer' and under that, go to manage.  Find the tab that says device manager and find your CD/DVD drive.  Uninstall the product/ or press delete. (whichever one it is)  Now your computer should immediately notice you have a cd drive and will install it for you.  I hope this works, because i havent had a computer with that problem in a long time, and i am running off of all i remember...  Tell me if you need anymore help.

Disk drive does not work. Possibly need a driver. What kind of removable drive? Rewriteable DVD written on face. Toshiba Satellite A15 series bought quite a few years back. Windows XP home.


I would go into the BIOS and make sure that the correct drive and drive type is there. Up on the boot sequence, hit F2 and go into the BIOS.

Also, go to the toshiba website download the drivers you need. I do it all the time.

You possibly have outdated drivers or you need to see if there are updates at the manufactures site.
Reload the drivers.

How to read DVD RW discs?


YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO GO TO THE TOSHIBA WEBSITE AND DOWNLOAD THE UPDATED DRIVER, A QUICKER SOLUTION ALSO IS TO GO TO THE DRIVER FOR YOUR DVD DRIVE, CLICK ON PROPERTIES, DRIVER, AND THEN UPDATE DRIVER, IT SHOULD ASK IF YOU WANT TO SEARCH THE INTERNET TO FIND THE DRIVER. IF SO, CLICK YES.. IF IT DONT, THEN YOU WILL HAVE TO GO TO THE WEBSITE TO GET THE DRIVER, IF YOU CAN'T FIND IT, LET ME KNOW AND I WILL SEE IF I CAN FIND IT FOR YOU..

How do i connect my dvd ram drive on my toshiba m35x s114?


Is this an external drive? Here a tip: Anytime you use a peripheral with USB you must load the drivers first, then hook up the device. This is only with USB devices. So try uninstalling your DVD driver, unplug the DVD player, reload the driver for the DVD player, then hook the DVD player back up. That should take care of it.
