    You should first check if the external CD/DVD drive is recognized as a boot device.
    Connect the external USB CD/DVD drive and switch on the device.
    Press F12.

    Now, you will see all bootable devices. Generally, the CD/DVD USB drive should appear if his support. If it does not appear, you will not be able to boot from the external USB CD/DVD drive.

    In this case I recommend you to create a bootable USB flash memory and install Windows 7 from USB flash memory

  • I'll be able to use the external dvd drive on microsoft surface?

    I like really the surface so far and I was wondering if I'll be able to use an external dvd drive on the surface because there only 1 usb port.


    You can attach an external USB hub or port replicator and connect USB devices to one. And, if connected to the network, you can use the DVD player on any other computer network with any active permissinns and sharing.


    In addition, there are at least a DVD player wireless.

I tried all the software out there to retrieve the data, and I know now that it is gone forever. I want to use it again (and make sure I save it constantly), but I'm unable to reformat the hard drive.

    Any help on this would be highly appreciated.

  • Satellite M30 - restore the external DVD drive

    I have a Satellite Pro M30. There is a problem with the drive DVD internal Multi - replacement will take a month or two to get here. I need to perform a restore on this machine. I connected an external DVD drive to the machine. When I start the machine starts on the restore CD but seems so looking for a Player X, I get the following messages displayed on the screen of the BACK:

    Kind regards

    Hello Sammer

    Unfortunately the recovery media is created to be used as internal drive only. I put t think you will be able to use it with an external device. On the restore CD there is a ghost image and it is not easy to fix it for use with an external device.

    Well, if you have installed your laptop not from the CD of Toshiba Recovery, so you must install all Toshiba drivers and utilities. This should be done in the right order!
    The chipset utility is very important. It must be installed first.

    Go to Device Manager, select the Wlan card and install the driver. The source of the driver is the folder of extraction.

    I suggest you to download and install the drivers for the CD/DVD on the manufacturers Web site.

  • My cd/dvd drive has disappeared. All trying to solve the problems of the code 19 appears. How can I get the cd/dvd drive F?

    my cd/dvd drive has stopped working.  He said after a repair code 19.  How to restore the drive?


    19 code means there is a driver conflict such as two devices attempt to use the same resources.

    Step 1: Please do all the same underneath if you did some before as is often total
    a process that solves the problem.

    Try this - Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click on the device - driver tab.
    Click on update drivers (this will probably do nothing) - RIGHT click ON the drive - uninstall.
    RESTART this will refresh the default driver stack. Even if the reader does not appear to continue

    Then, work your way through these - don't forget the drive might be bad, could be a coward
    cable or slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

    Another possibility is that the cables are loose. Remove ALL power, then make sure that the cables in both

    Some DVD players do not use the Windows default drivers so check with the manufacturer of system and
    manufacturer of device to see if there is a firmware or drivers for your drive if necessary.


    Step 2: You have disc problems as the CD/DVD is actually 4 discs in 1 case (CD & DVD
    Burn and CD and DVD read). So it is not unusual for 1 or 2 operational so that other parts
    do it right.

    the parameters.

  • Implement the external dvd drive on iMac


    My superdrive drive started acting funny (not eject disks and then do not read), so I bought an external dvd reader/player.
    Everything worked fine until I installed an SSD instead the superdrive.
    Now, when I go to play a DVD in the DVD drive external drive says "there was an error of initialization, a valid dvd drive could not be found."

    Other applications do not recognize the dvd either, as they did.

    Disk utility will find the dvd if it is in drive but you will not find the player if there is no DVD.

    Is there something I can do to recognize the DVD player as the default player for the iMac?

    Thank you

    There is nothing to recognize without a disc in the DVD player. It's normal. Apple's DVD player software does not work on my iMac 2009 with the original drive in an external case because I also installed an SSD in the optical Bay. I use VLC to watch videos. My disc burning software, Toast, recognizes external very well.
