Re: New DVD player is not recognized - Satellite 5200 801

The old DVD drive no longer works, so I bought a new DVD player (SonyNEC Optiarc AD - 7593A).
But the system does not recognize the new drive at all.

I can not boot from the CD and in the hardwaremanager, there is no CD/DVD.

But the drive works. If I put a CD in, you can hear how he turns upward.
If I put the old drive, it is recognized in the hardwaremanager, but the reader no longer works.

Any ideas?

Thank you


> But the drive works. If I put a CD in, you can hear how he turns upward.

It says nothing! You can hear the rotating disc because it s connected to the laptop and it s operated.

The BIOS is important! Your new CD/DVD drive is recognized in the BIOS?

If not, then you have purchased NOT compatible CD/DVD player!

I think that the master/slave/c-salt settings are not compatible with the laptop and so the CD/DVD drive may not be recognized.

    As far as I know your device has a Slim select Bay. If the drive is not in a good position and there is no proper contact of the reader doesn t exist for the system. Please check if the disc is in the correct position. If you put it inside at the end to do a click. After that, the reader is correctly positioned.

  • Satellite P25-S520 - DVD player does not work properly

    Difficulty of DVD player or buy the external drive

    My DVD player does not work properly, in fact it can never work properly. Recently, I tried to back up my PC on a DVD using Norton 360. Norton did not recognize that the DVD was present. Then I tried to write a text file on a DVD and was a failure. DVD + R and DVD-R media were found to be (Maxwell 16 X).

    I could have probably lived with this however, I received a copy of Dragon NaturallySpeaking version 10 on a CD and my Toshiba would not recognize it. I tried the CD in my laptop nearby and it was recognized.

    An attempt to update the driver has also fails.

    I was able to copy a CD of music last night so that at least works properly.

    Does anyone know how can I fix? The important part is to be able to load my new program.

    Research on some forums I found that other people have had problems with the Pioneer drive. If the drive can't be fixed, I'm not adverse to buying an external DVD drive. Unfortunately, where I live there is no brick and mortar stores selling external drives and I prefer to avoid the hassle of getting a drive online and discovering that it does not work with my Toshiba. Can someone suggest an external USB drive that will read and write CD and DVD and is certain to be compatible with my Toshiba?

    Thanks for any help,

    Satellite P25-S520
    Driver provider: Microsoft
    Driver date: 01/07/2001
    Driver version: 5.1.2535.0
    Digital signer: Microsoft Windows Publisher

    Any external USB CD/DVD drive will be compatible with your laptop.

    However, you won't be able to boot from CD (run recovery for example) If you are using an external drive.

    So, your best option would be to replace the internal drive with a Toshiba drive designed for the laptop. Call an ASP and request a quote.

  • Satellite A100-447 - DVD player does not read some discs


    I have a 4 month old Satellite 100-447 (PSAAN), came preloaded with Vista Home Premium and a carpet * CD/DVD super-multi UJ-850 s player.

    The DVD player does not work properly. It will recognize a few blank, but never DVD-R DVD and won't recognise any DVD at all serious. He is very good with CD and DVD movie discs. It's just recordable DVD where there is a problem.

    Also when you try to write to a DVD, when he chooses to recognize a TI-error in half way through.

    What can I do?

    Thanks for your help.


    You can do the follwowing:

    Go to this website,

    Download the latest update of the firmware for this drive, install it, and then try again.

    Sometimes, the manufacturer must update their readers for the newer recordable media and so I think that it is possible that your drive is simply not up to date.

  • Satellite A500 - video/dvd player is not compatible with Windows 10

    After having recently updated of my laptop for windows 10 I discovered that the dvd player does not work. A message is displayed informing that the player is not compatible with this version of windows. A scan using Norton suggests dvd will not work because it needs to be configured.

    Does anyone else have this problem?

    Obviously, Toshiba DVD playback application that is preinstalled on this Satellite A500 model is not compatible with the system Windows 10.

    In this case this software will not properly work after the upgrade to win 10 and I guess you have to remove the system Win 10.

    Unfortunately, the Satellite A500 is not listed as Win 10 portable computers and so I don't think you will get an update to this software for DVD playback.

    Here is a list of models supported for upgrading to Windows 10

  • Satellite L750-16Z new DVD player

    It keeps track of the post "Reader of DVD Satellite L750 - 16Z erratic behavior".

    Dvd endless reason disc clicks have been resolved by turning off the Toshiba PC Health Monitor from startup in msconfig.

    Now, if I go into Windows Media Player and play a .wmv file saved, the DVD drive clicks when a .wmv file is normally played only the first time. I think this may have something to do with the settings in Windows Media Player like VLC seems OK. Any ideas?

    I could try to completely uninstall the PC Health Monitor - but before you do, I noticed that my version is, but one on the Toshiba site is and it doesn't seem to be a to download for my model, in which case I wish to reinstall at a later date.

    In the meantime, I turned off the DVD drive in Device Manager. I also wonder if it is possible to disable the DVD from the BIOS drive? This isn't an ideal solution, but should record the disc in the long term.

    > It keeps track of the post ' reader of DVD Satellite L750-16Z erratic behavior. "
    > Dvd endless reason disc clicks have been resolved by turning off the Toshiba PC Health Monitor from startup in msconfig.

    Seems that you are talking about this thread:

    > Now, if I go into Windows Media Player and play a file saved .wmv, the DVD drive clicks when a .wmv file is normally played only the first time. I think this may have something to do with the settings in Windows Media Player like VLC seems OK. Any ideas?

    Not sure about this but it could be related to WMP if it appears only using WMP.

    > I could try completely uninstalling the PC Health Monitor - but before doing so, I noticed that my version is, but the one on the Toshiba site is and it doesn't seem to be a to download for my model, in which case I wish to reinstall at a later date.

    I guess that's the same version, however, on the page of the Toshiba driver you will find no more version that preinstalled on your laptop. so you will be able to always download the latest don t you worry about it you can uninstall this tool ;)

    PS: DVD player can not be disabled in the BIOS

  • Satellite 5200 - need master/slave patch for the new DVD player

    I need a patch for DVD to use in a Satellite 5200.

    My original DVD is broken, so I bought a Toshiba SD-C2512 DVD but it does not work inside the Satellite, but with adapter to my desktop PC.
    I patch the DVD in master.

    Where can I get the file and the prog for patch?


    I think that these patches do you mean are not available and as far as I know if you can spend a notebook of the master to the slave, for example there is a jumper on the drive.

    However, to me it sounds like this drive is not compatible with this laptop. Not every disc is compatible with all laptop (g. pins assignment.) e  ;)

    You must buy a new one and check the user's manual. There you should find a list of compatible drives.

    Hi Paul,.

    You don't say what model of laptop you have, but generally speaking if you are using Windows XP then you will use the standard Microsoft drivers for your scanner.

    However, you can Toshiba drivers and utilities download from Toshiba web site by clicking on the Support section and downloads and selection of files to download. You will need to fill in the details of your laptop so that the list of appropriate driver (unless you have provided these details when you register).
