DVD player has stopped working

I am running Vista Home Premium. My ATAPI DVD drive has stopped working. Device Manager shows it, drivers are updated, I tried Microsoft Fixit, nothing seems to work. I read about this problem, seems a lot of people have the same problem with no fix, what do I do?

I am betting its windows. So what is my options, buy windows 7. Maybe a different o/s. How many problems like mine have had to deal with?

Absolutely not... If the question is the disc or other material so you are stuck with a system
You can not install it on. And there may be serious flaws that are too expensive to repair.

Previously published several ways to use a variety of boot floppies to see if the driver will be
actually boot outside of Windows. If this isn't the case, then you have a more serious problem. If it isn't
startup then you should re - install Vista to be sure there is no other problems with the
disc before any thought of the upgrade.

I hope this helps and happy holidays!

    My DVD drive used for good work... and then I installed iTunes.
    He then worked for a while, but only by using "Run as Administrator".

    I uninstalled iTunes - and uninstalled and then re-installed DVD player - but it still doesn't work!

    My solution is to remove a Toshiba DVD drive and install VLC player. You can get it for free.
    It can play all video formats, and you don't need additional codecs.

    Hello

    If you didn t do a backup before deleting upper and lower filters that you can t restore it. This could be a bit difficult so, normally, you should always make a backup before you change or delete something in the Windows registry.

    As Akuma writes, you can try the system restore. Maybe it will work

    Sometimes when I press the eject button, that nothing is happening outside the orange light flashes and continues to blink. When this happens that I lose the drive in my computer and the only way to make it work again is to restart the laptop.

    Usually, it works when I reboot then stops working, but it doesn't also sometimes from the restart.

    Someone at - it ideas.

    Thank you

    Dan

    Hello!

    Have you looked on the Toshiba site for an update of the firmware? Search on the Toshiba site for an update, maybe this will solve your problem.

    However, I think it could also be a hardware problem that your drive is defective. Then I'd go to a local ASP. A technician can check your laptop.

  • Driver for tsst ts-l632p DVD player has stopped working

    Yesterday I tried to install office 2007, but after inserting the dvd into noticed that it lacked the d:\ icon. I went into Device Manager and I just found out that the "tsstcorp cddvdw ts-l632p ata device' is yellow, with this error:

    Windows cannot load the driver for this hardware device. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)
    The BIOS is recognizing the material, and if I delete the entry in the Device Manager it reinstalls itself, so if I'm lucky is not a hardware failure, but a driver problem.

    I have not tried to start the laptop with the included dvd disc, I'll try that to confirm whether this is a hardware or software problem. In the meantime, what can I do to fix this?

    Run the sfc/scannow command.
