HP TouchSmart laptop: DVD player, error 45 failure

CD/DVD drive not unawares... may not open the drawer with a needle but the computer no longer seems to recognize that I have a CD/DVD player... did some checking online and after having checked that the driver was updated (it was), most popular tips seem to be remove the driver, reboot and it needs to be reinstalled , but it did not... There is now no inscription on the device for DVD/CD Manager.

Received error 45 that the material was not connected?

Any ideas to fix at some reasonable cost/effort?

  • V5.8 DVD player: error-70012

    Dear Apple community,

    I use a MacBook Pro 13 "(mi-2010) and replaced the Superdrive (SD) by a 750 GB HD (using the iFixit statement)." At the time I build on the 750 GB HD, it had Mac OS X 10.11.1. I noticed recently that the DVD player (v.5.8) not started correctly, display this error message:

    There was an error initializing

    A valid DVD drive is not found. [- [ 70012]

    Pressing the Ok button, quit the program.

    In this case independent of whether it is a DVD inserted in the SD card or not. The Superdrive is connected via USB as external drive and works well, for example with the VLC Player I installed before that I checked Apple's DVD player.

    Until I checked the DVD player, I also downloaded from the App Store "Screen recording Studio" App (Lite and more later for €4.99). This program does unfortunately not work, and I don't know if this installation has changed the settings of the DVD player or just the fact that the SD card is not connected as external drive.

    I contacted Apple Support and as a possible solution, that I've been recommended to update my Mac OS X 10.11.1 to update more recent 10.11.5 - which I did, but I still get the same error message when you start the DVD player.

    You have an idea for a solution? Are there preferences that can be adapted without having to reinstall the entire operating system new risk of loss of data etc. ?

    Thanks for your support!

    Best regards

  • Aspire laptop DVD player GONE! SlimType DVD A D58A4SH need a fix for this DVD player

    Is there a fix out there for a problem loading the driver for CD/DVD Acer Aspire of the laptop drive?  I have the Aspire 5334 with DVD Super Multi DL drive.

    I have a Slimtype DVD A D58A4SH player. He worked for a short time when I got the notebook and then it stopped completely.  There was an exclamation point on the list of devices and when I checked to see if the pilot that it has been updated, he said it was the last updated, etc.  BUT still does not.  I tried to roll back - which did not work.  So I uninstalled the drive completely.  Did a restart and it recognizes the DVD drive and started to install the driver for it.  Says the driver installation failed.  The dvd player is no longer listed in Device Manager.  I tried to go to the download page of support/driver from the Acer website for this brand and the computer model - it does not list DVD drivers at all.   So now I'm confused.  It was a Christmas gift from 2011. So I think that the warranty has expired.  So I'm pretty ticked if I need to replace a failed drive which is just came out barely a month outside the warranty of the year.  Someone out there who has a fix for this problem it will be greatly appreciated.  Thank you.

    I found a FIX for this problem!  Yay!

    I had an error Code 39 and did a search on the Microsoft Web site.  Here is the link.  I followed the "method 2" and it worked Finally, got my rear DVD player. Phew!

  • Satellite Pro U300 - DVD Player error

    I had not used my DVD player for a long time, and when I tried to use it again the other day that he has stopped working. Where to insert the DVD and the DVD player provided Toshiba starts a message pops up saying
    "Impossible for the release of the video on an external device. "Please change your display keys of the device by pressing the Fn + F5 after the end of the application.

    I did what he said and further and have made sure the computer does not recognize somehow, another device connected to my laptop. All that shows is the LCD screen of the laptop and nothing more. No clue as to how can I fix? I don't have an external display at the moment as im at Uni. so I can't plug a hook to the top and see if it works like that and then properly close. Any other suggestions? Would be great,

  • DVD Player error

    I've been using the first element 11 for awhile and burn my projects on DVD with no problems until that 2 days ago when I tried to burn a project of 33 minutes when during the beginning of the DVD burning burning stopped, and the following error appears: "internal software error:.". \Vobulator\BlochPlanner\BlockPlanner.cpp,line 215 "

    I use Windows Pro 10, 16 GB memory, Intel processor i75820, Samsung solidstate C: drive and a 1 TB for the video drive.

    Given that no one ventured all the answers that I decided just shoot myself.

    The problem was with one of the predefined Adobe titles. Once I removed this title burning proceeded as planned.

  • On Qosmio G20 DVD player does not work

    On my laptop dvd player does not work perfectly.
    I can watch DVDs and CDs, but I can't burn CDs or DVDs at all.

    This laptop is a former view model and think that when I bought the store I bought it since deleted most of the information

    Help, please

    Thank you


    There are two possible reasons why you are not able to copy anything to the CD or DVD.

    First, it may be possible that the drives used are not entirely compatible.
    In such cases, it s always advisable to test different CD and DVD from different manufacturers.

    Secondly, the issue could be related to a defective laser lens; in many cases, this can happen because of a physical constraint. If the laser lens can not calibrate in a good position, then the player will not be able to handle the inserted discs.
    This could be the worst case, because this issue is not repairable. Just a STRANGE replacement could help.

  • Satellite Pro A300D - cannot play movies on a Toshiba DVD player

    Hi guys,.

    When I play movies in Toshiba DVD player I get the following error message: "unable to output the video to an external device. Please check the external output setting after the end of the application. TEMPRO, I installed and tried to install all updates - some of them were for different hardware so wouldn't install.

    I get a similar problem in Windows Media Player "Windows Media Player cannot play this DVD because there is a problem with the digital copy between your DVD player and the video card protection decoder. Try to install a driver available for your video card. VLC player works fine. The drive otherwise normally functioning.

    It's the same problem, as described in this thread: http://forums.computers.toshiba-europe.com/forums/thread.jspa?messageID=201029&tstart=0, but all the answers are a similar problem with HD DVD on a different model (P200).

    Anyone know how I can fix this problem? I'm not sure I can be bothered to go back and reinstall Vista etc...

    Thank you

    Hey Buddy,

    According to the Toshiba DVD Player error message: are you trying to watch DVDs on an external monitor or TV?
    In your case, I will try to reinstall the DVD playback software. This means delete the current version and then restart your computer. Then download and install the latest software from Toshiba DVD player.

    But to be honest: it's that everything works with VLC media player as it s very big and small media player that can play all audio and video files. Isn t it? ;)
