Music CD and DVD do not work on satellite notebook

Hey people

I have a problem. I'm not very good with computers, but I know the basics. I have a Toshiba Equium with windows XP. It of my girlfriends, so when I got it was really slow with all its stuff student.

So I deleted everything and re-installed the computer to what it would have been when it is new, but now, nothing works. Music CD and DVD does not infact everything I put in the drive does not work. The orange light is on the cd player suggesting there is a CD player, but the computer is not picking it up.

Any ideas?

Thank you

Hello Klark

If the laptop is installed with the recovery media, there must be preinstalled WinDVD application and you should use it to watch original DVD movies. Have you already tested?

If you try to use original music CD try to boot with Windows media player. It should work. You can also install the latest version (v.11). What is with mp3 files? You hear mp3 files? Seems works well?

  • WIFI and BT do not work on Satellite C850-F12S

    My friend has a portable Satellite C850-F12S who wouldn't start so he asked me to fix it.
    I used a Windows 7 disc retail and product key as his cell phone to reinstall windows.

    I downloaded the Atheros wireless, intel drivers and realtek, but none of them want to install. I have the seam of Ant to get the wifi or bluetooth, too much work.

    When I enter the serial number in this site it is said that it is bluetooth and wifi but the drivers wont install and when I go to "network and sharing", "change adapter settings" it only shows the ethernet adapter nothing else. I tried pressing fn + f12 and the wireless led turns amber, but still nothing.

    I can't read this specification for laptop (too small), but so deep is the product key, which means that this laptop model was offered with the original version of Windows preinstalled.
    Before that you're wasting your time trying to fix something I recommend you install the original version of OS which includes all necessary drivers, tools and utilities.

    I just hope that your friend have created recovery (DVD or USB) media because after your Windows disk recovery facility installation HARD does not work.

    Ask your friend if there a recovery media and use it for the installation of the OS.

  • Keyboard and touchpad do not work on Satellite C870-13F

    I have a computer satellite C870-13th since August.

    Yesterday for no apparent reason, my touchpad has stopped working. (no, I didn't turn off)
    Not really bothered by it, I continued working on my computer for several hours.
    Find it me so that he might be a little bug, so I decided to restart my computer.

    When we turn back, not only my touchpad does not work, now nothing on my keyboard responded, not a single touch. I've updated the drivers, bios, done a virus scan, restored my computer for a few days before, nothing is.

    The strange thing is that the keyboard is always when I press F1 or F8, 0, enter, and arrow keys to get into the menus before windows starts.

    Help them, I used the toshiba recovery to restore the computer to factory settings.
    Despite all this, keyboard and touchpad are still pending.
    I don't really understand, because it works at startup may not be real materialistic damage!

    Now, I'm getting frustrated cause I have more solutions and tapping the screen with the keyboard is really slow! = p

    Any help?


    I think that it s a bad material work because you have already tried the system recovery and the keyboard does not work even if you use the factory settings.

    But it would be interesting to know if the USB external keyboard would serve. You can test this? In my opinion if the external keyboard would work properly, then it would mean that your keyboard is faulty and must be replaced.
    I m wondering if the fault of the touchpad is related to failure of internal keyboard.

    However, I think that the guarantee must still be valid if you bought this unit in August. Then get in touch with service and guys should fix it for free!

  • Keyboard and Touchpad does not work on Satellite L

    It's the second time this has happened to me
    However the last time a system restore solved the problem, this time restore system did not work.

    I can use my keyboard at startup and in safe mode, but that's all.
    I am currently using a USB keyboard and a mouse.

    I tried almost all the suggestions with no joy. Help, please.


    There are not many options that could solve this problem.
    It can be a hardware software or related issue.

    You can use the internal keyboard in the BIOS?
    Select this check box.
    If this is not possible, I guess that the hardware is defective.

    Also I recommend that you test the keyboard and the touchpad using factory settings.
    Grab the laptop and check if the keyboard would serve. Otherwise you will need a help of a technician for laptop to replace the keyboard and the touchpad

  • The CD/DVD does not work with El Capitan 10.11.5 on Macbook Pro

    Hello everyone, I spent the time to research on the here and the other site on why the CD/DVD does not work with El Capitan 10.11.5 on MacBook Pro mid 2009. This discussion forum has said that he will not work with the El Capitan software. Any idea or suggestion? Back to Marverick or Yosemite? I tried to use SMC reset, restart, recovery and still the same issue.

    I thank in advance.

    ~ Mike

    I have my doubts that the (10.11.5) software is the problem.  Are you sure that the DVD player is simply not defective?  Have you tried to clean the lens?  What is the State of the disc?

  • Startup and display does not work well.

    When I start Windows XP it takes about 4 minutes to the icons appears.  They appear of normal size and the screen turns white and the size of the icons and programs and the internet are extra-large. I go into display properties and reconfigure and find his game on 8-bit!  After configuration back to normal display and restart or turn on again the same thing happens!

    Also, I tried to do a system restore and it does not work either. Please advise me on what to do. Thank you!

    Hi RhondaHeaven,

    I suspect that your display card drivers are corrupted. You have your cd/dvd drivers? If this is not the case, download your display drivers (you will get the model and make from Device Manager - click on start-> settings-> Control Panel-> system-> hardware-> device-> display adapter Manager).

    Click Start-> settings-> Control Panel-> system-> hardware-> Device Manager-> right click on your display-> Uninstall adapter.

    Uninstall display drivers Intel of add/remove programs.

    Restart your computer. Reinstall the drivers from the cd or downloaded driver.

    I hope this helps.

  • I've lost the ability to copy files on my CD player. When I drag and drop, the only authorized action is 'move' and it does not work.

    I've lost the ability to copy files on my CD player.  When I drag and drop, the only authorized action is 'move' and it does not work.   I tried press and hold the CTRL key while dragging, and when I do that all the other disks show "copy" as the default action, but when I hover over the action CD player available only changes to 'pass '.   I ran the Microsoft Troubleshooting tool for CD/DVD players and he said that the media were not writable, but there is a blank CD in the drive.  Any ideas on how to solve this problem?

    Thanks, but the cd/dvd drive works well - I can burn a cd with windows media player for example.  the problem is that I can't copy files to it.   I can play CDs (haven't checked the DVD).  I can not do and could do before, is doing drag and drop files on it.  The only authorized action is "move".   This happens even when I click CTRL + do drag.   I can copy it to any other player, but the CD player, and when I hover over the "exemplary" drive CD goes to 'move '.

    have you tried using a different suite of cd/dvd burning?

    Imageburn is free and easy to use:
