DVD - RW DVR-K17LF for the Satellite series does not read DVD but only to CD


I have a serious problem with my DVD player.
He stopped to work. I mean, he's not reading CD but not DVD discs.
I don't know what the problem is.

I went on the internet and found no solution.

Please help me.
It is not a software problem, because my laptop does not start the DVD, but due to the CD...



The issue could be linked to the anomaly of the player's laser lens.
Maybe the lens can not handle the DVD because of a physical constraint.
In most cases, the lens can not calibrate properly and therefore different media would not work.
In this case there is not much to do in most of the cases that the drive needs to be replaced.

But maybe you could try to clean the drive s laser lens using a cleaning professional who could be bought from the other computer dealers.
I don't very well if this will help but it s worth to try m

PS: Try this:
Remove the drive from Device Manager, access the registry and remove the filters top and bottom of this key;
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Then restart the laptop and check the functionality of s by car.

  • Satellite A100-499 - function for the WiFi button does not work

    Hello, I have a Toshiba Satellite A100 - 499 PSAA9E.

    I formatted my laptop and installed XP with SP3. I downloaded and installed the drivers (in the right order) for this OS of the toshiba - Europe.com and everything is going well except Fn + F8. It is assumed that this combination has toggle Wifi & Bluetooth. When I switch side 'off' position and I press the keys, appears a message saying that I should switch to position 'on' but when I switch lateral position 'on' and I press Fn + F8 it does nothing.

    If I want to disable the wi - fi I have to do it with other methods: the function key does not work correctly.

    Any clue?
    Thanks for the advice (and sorry for my English).

    When the WLAN switch is on orange LED is also on?
    You can scan area available networks?
    Have you tried to use the WLAN without using FN + F8?

  • Satellite A500 does not read DVD

    Not sure about the specific problem of original posters but I cant get DVD's to play on my A500 either. I only had the unit for a few weeks, but don't think I've tried far movies (movies on my USB stick work fine, just can't get the DVD player to work). I had no problem initial installation Norton / MSoffice and others so I guess that the hardware is working fine just do not speak for the rest of the computer regarding Watch DVD
    The hard drive does not appear when I 'explorer' the computer so I can not yet use Media Player to find the disc and see the movie like this. If I try to use the toshiba dvd player, I get the following message;

    "The specified drive is not found. Check the settings by going in "parameters - parameters-source of the Action, or otherwise make sure that disk has been correctly connected to the PC.

    When I explore drivers, the computer says that I have the good. Ideas for a jerk of techie nearly to repair it? My EX so used to do all those things... I would rather not go crawling back to him for help! Laughing out loud


    If I understand your question correctly; the CD/DVD drive does not appear in windows Explorer. Is this right?

    Check this box:
    Go to Device Manager and remove the CD/DVD drive on listThen device register access and delete the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters completely from the following registry key values:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    . Restart the device and retest the drive

  • Gets the error in Windows Denfender for "the specified service does not exist as an installed device (error Code: 0 x 80070424).

    My computer was slow, so I tried to scan all using Windows Defender, and this error message keeps popping up, "the specified service does not exist as an installed device (error Code: 0 x 80070424) I don't know how fx this.» I' of love too see if there is another reliable computer, free softwear that can scan and virus scanning spywear.


    Windows Defender is an antispyware software, not an Antivirus.

    If you use Norton, AVG, Avira, Microsoft Security Essentials, McAfee, etc. the default action is for Windows Defender must be disabled, that these AntiVirus programs have their own Antispyware Applications.

    There is nothing to worry.

    Using both programs at the same time can cause system conflicts, etc.

    If you are using one of the above AntiVirus programs, this Information from David O - Support Engineer shows you how to manually enable Windows Defender (disregard information from uninstalling; not possible in Vista):


    "Go to start, Control Panel, Administrative Tools, Services. Look for Windows Defender.

    Right click and select Properties , ensure that Startup Type is automatic.

    Once modified, click apply and OK.

    Quit and restart your computer. Check the back take the same path to confirm that Windows Defender has started"


    And for now, change startup Vista programs without using Defender, use one of these methods:

    "How to use MSCONFIG in Windows Vista"


    Or the program Autoruns for FREE:

    "V11.21 Autoruns for Windows"



    And try this method for the analysis of Malware

    Scan of Malware in Safe Mode with network.


    Windows Vista

    Using the F8 method:

    1. Restart your computer.
    2. When the computer starts, you will see your computer hardware are listed. When you see this information begins to tap the F8 key repeatedly until you are presented with the Boot Options Advanced Windows Vista.
    3. Select the Safe Mode with networking with the arrow keys.
    4. Then press enter on your keyboard to start mode without failure of Vista.
    5. To start Windows, you'll be a typical logon screen. Connect to your computer and Vista goes into safe mode.
    6. Do whatever tasks you need and when you are done, reboot to return to normal mode.

    Once in Safe Mode with network, download and run RKill.

    RKill does NOT remove the malware; It stops the Malware process that gives you a chance to remove it with your security programs.


    Then, download, install, update and scan your system with the free version of Malwarebytes AntiMalware in Mode safe mode with networking:

  • HP LaserJet 1018: For the printing window does not appear

    This problem started recently.  When I try to print on both sides, print the first side, then the little window that used to appear with instructions to remove and re - insert the page for printing of the second part does not appear.   This means that there is no "continue" button click on because it's in the same window.  So I can not print the second side.

    Any suggestions on what is wrong and how to fix it?

  • Satellite A100 - does not read CD


    My drive doesn't read any CD or does not install any software, but it reads a DVD when played. For the normal software or CD CD he says - 'Insert the CD' and even if reinserted it does not read.

    I tried the support Microsoft-difficulty your CD and DVD player can't read, but it has not fixed the problem.

    Can anyone help?

    Hey Buddy,

    What Microsoft support fix tried exactly?
    Do you mean that? http://support.Microsoft.com/kb/314060

    You can also try to remove the drive from Device Manager and then restart the laptop. After that the drive will be recognized automatically.

    Also try to clean the lens of the CD/DVD drive. Therefore, you can use a microfibre cloth.

  • Drive DVD/CD-RW of the proBook laptop does not read the CD mudic

    I use a 4410 s HP ProBook and the CD/DVD drive comes with the laptop for almost 2 years.

    He used to have no problem to read the CD/DVD, but about 2 months ago it stop just reading of CD (DVD is fine). I tried many CDs of different music from different brands, but it did not work so I assumed that the drive had to be replaced.

    However, it works very well with data CD (I just realized it today) so it must have been something wrong with the hardware/software, but I don't know what it is.

    Any suggestion how to solve the problem? I want to try all the options before you use the system recovery and having to reinstall all the software again

    Well... the problem is solved by itself. One of the things that I tried yesterday milion needs!

  • Keyboard shortcuts for the screen saver does not

    When upgrading to Mac OS Sierra, the hotkey to put the screen in sleep mode (control - shift - (power or Media Eject button )) has stopped working. As I use this command several times a day and don't know not of any other way to put the screen in sleep mode, it's one of the few reasons why I consider really return to El Capitan.

    Someone knows how to fix this?

    Hi Zwolff,

    Thanks for posting in the Community Support from Apple! I understand that you are having problems with the keyboard shortcut to put your display to sleep. It is certainly a handy to use feature and I'm happy to offer some suggestions to help.

    The first thing that I recommend you try safe mode connects. This will clear the caches and conduct audits at your connection. Here you can find the steps for safe mode:

    Try safe mode if your Mac does not end commissioning

    I also recommend you test this in a test on your Mac user account. There may be software or a specific file of the user that generated problems with your shortcut.
