Satellite A200 27z does not recognize DVD drive


Ive got the computer laptop toshiba Satellite A200 27z & a while a go it wouldn't turn on at all, I took it to a computer repair shop & they seemed to solve the problem, except that they delete all the "stuff" that comes with the laptop.

On the most part, he always does things I want to do. But recently I went to play a dvd in there & it won't work, even if it does not play DVD if theyre sent to me by msn etc.

Normally, when I put a dvd, toshiba dvd player would automatically right away, but now he used. When I go to manually open the dvd player toshiba a message just ups saying:

* the specific drive is not found. Check the settings by going to settings > stock settings > source. or otherwise check that the disc has been correctly connected to the levels

Ive been in the "action settings", but the source area is blocked (do not type anything in it). I don't know much about computers and so do not know how to check if the drive is properly connected.

It will not also recognize when I put a cd that he either, as normally if I put a cd in and then itunes would automatically load upward, now itunes will not appear if a cd is in the laptop & I can't find it anywhere.

can help someone, I have no idea about these things!


I had this problem a few months ago, I thought that I should send it to be repaired but Windows Mr Fixit made and my dvd player is running again

I hope this works for you

  • Satellite A200-1AE does not recognize the USB 2.0 flash drive

    I have a problem because my satellite A200-1AE with Microsoft Vista does not recognize the USB 2.0 flash drive. He asks me a program/software!
    The same USB works without problem on other computers with vista!

    Someone knows what to do?


    First of all, you must disconnect all USB devices and must remove the USB ports and controllers in the Device Manager.
    After this procedure, you must restart the laptop. After a new restart the Vista operating system should recognize the USB ports and should reinstall USB drivers again.

    Then you must update the Vista to the State! All fixes and patches must be installed. Please note that you will have to visit the MS Update site for all patches

    Notes; MS has released a beta of Vista SP1. I installed it on my laptop and it has solved several problems.

  • Satellite C650-1CP - does not recognize DVD

    For some unknown reason, my Satellite C650-1CP stopped reading DVDs (although it works for cd), it does not recognize all simply that a DVD is in the drive.

    I tried several games (including games that worked on my laptop) and none do not work, any suggestions?

    Hello uncleben,.

    Maybe the DVDs are scratched... Have you tried different types of DVD and you are sure that the drives are ok?

  • Satellite A200-1CR does not recognize the module of RAM 2 GB


    I have a problem with the extension of the RAM.
    I have the Satellite A200-1CR with 2 x 512 MB of RAM.

    Now, I bought 1 x 2 GB RAM (DDR2 PC2-5300 (667 MHz); PA3513S-1M2G) but the BIOS and Windows recognizes only 1 GB.
    When I add 1x512mo to the second slot, the system recognizes 1.5 GB of RAM.
    Where is the problem?

    What should I do to make it see 2 GB?



    I think the answer is very simple.
    Satellite A200-1CR can be upgraded up to 2 GB of RAM.
    This means that you can use max 1 GB of RAM in one slot
    You used 2 GB of RAM and this module does not seem to be compatible
    In my opinion if you want to use 2 GB of RAM then you can buy 2 x 1 GB RAM modules

    HI Matt,

    I suggest that you check in Device Manager to see if there is a problem with your hard drive. In any case, it may be helpful to remove the device from Device Manager and then restart for the drive is recognized again as a new installation.

  • Satellite Pro A10 does not recognize the drive WEIRD AD - 7540A model

    Hi all.

    I just bought a new model slimline DVD rewritable AD - 7540A, brand Sony NEC Optiarc. When it is plugged into the computer laptop and for the POST, it appears the 'IDE #1 error' message after the operating system starts, I am unable to open the drawer and no CD/DVD can be read.

    I checked this drive on another laptop from another brand, and it works fine, so the problem is not in the drive itself. Could someone help me?

    Thanks in advance.

    The problem is simple.
    Your phone does support not all readers of CD/DVD slimline because different or bad master/slave/c-salt settings.

    The IDE #1 error message indicates that the BIOS cannot recognize the device connected to the #1 IDE controller.

    In your case, the solution is simple; you need to buy a compatible CD/DVD player and supported

    Mayen a user manual would provide details on the management of records.
    If not, then contact the ASP in your country and ask some compatible devices!

  • Windows 8 does not recognize DVD drive

    Hello world. I have recently upgraded to Windows 7 Ultimate for Windows 8 Pro, my laptop HP Pavilion 1287la g4, 64-bit. I used a Windows 8 Pro DVD to upgrade, everything was going well after the upgrade as fully recognized pilots, tool integration, and all my personal files were saved.

    The only problem I found is that after the upgrade of the DVD drive is not recognized. It actually isn't even in the devices. I contacted Hp and they were able to help me make the drive detectable, but now I see that the icon of the DVD in the devices shows a yellow warning, which means that the driver of this material is not found or is corrupted. I did everything that I can to search for the driver, but still the BONE says it's updated with a generic driver. However, the reader does not always show upward. Please help with a better solution. I really like Windows 8 and I don't want to go back and upgrade to Windows 7 again. Thanks in advance.

    Try the following steps:

    1. run the command as administrator prompt. Type cmd in Windows 8 modern user interface and press HUMINT + shift + enter

    2 type following and say enter

    Reg.exe add "HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\atapi\Controller0" / f/v EnumDevice1 /t REG_DWORD /d 0x00000001

  • Satellite L40 - 15G - BIOS does not recognize DVD drive

    Hello, I have a L40 - 15 g doesn t seem to show the driver on the BIOS.
    Tried a pioneer dvr-k17tbt (original)?
    a GSA - T40N H - L
    a Sony DW-P50A
    No shows on BIOS.

    I've reset CMOS, BIOS update, nothing works
    All readers Don t show on windows as well, but they have the power (light and work button)
    What should do?

    Hey Buddy,

    What is the original drive and where you have ordered the new CD/DVD readers?
    Have you checked if there is a jumper for master/slave definition? If so try with the master and slave.

    The problem is that not all readers are compatible for all laptops. If you don't know which drive is just ask a maintainer approved assistance.

  • Satellite M60-155: drive does not recognize DVD

    The multidrive on my laptop does not recognize DVD-he just turns and clicks.

    It recognizes the CD tho. I've had this problem before, but did not pick up the CD player and it plays DVDs.
    I managed to solve this last time, but I do not remember how.

    Any ideas?


    Don't you remember how you solved the problem? ?:|
    Hmm, very strange.
    However, I think that it s a problem of calibration of lens of the drive.
    The lens can not be calibrated properly and that's why the drive cannot read the media.

    Have you tried to remove the drive from the laptop? If this is not the case, try to remove it. Then start without the drive. Then shut off the unit. Reinstall the drive and start the laptop. The firmware should take over again and maybe the lens is calibrated in the right position.

    You can also try to clean the lens gently. But if the whole points will not help you may need to replace the drive

  • My DVD drive does not recognize DVD game discs.

    My NEC ND-4550-reader DVD - RW does not recognize DVD game discs.
    He has no problem reading movie DVDs and music CDs or access data CD and DVD burnt with data on them.
    I removed and let XP Reinstall the device and high-low filters removed the registry etc nothing works.
    I made a copy of a DVD game on another PC and it is recognized and install my PC.
    All DVD discs work very well on the other PC.
    I am running Windows XP Professional with SP2.
    MS Fixit controls indicate no problems.
    This would be a matter of software protection?
    All tried game DVDs are official records and not copies.
    The NEC ND-4550 uses cdrom.sys as pilot.

    Finally, I replaced the drive for a new one (Pioneer DVR-S18L) and everything now works as it should.
    So I suspect that it's a hardware problem and not one that can be resolved by any of the Windows settings.

  • CD/DVD does not recognize the drive.

    CD/DVD does not recognize the drive.  Error message-"Insert a disk." "" "Insert a disk in the drive (E or F, depending on whether one in use).  I bought a DVD/CD thought exteranl today that might work.  Same error message with the external dvd/cd.  Can hear the disc turning when it is inserted during a short period of time, maybe 20 seconds, then it stops.  Sometimes, the disc is ejected when the error message appears, sometimes not.  Same results even with blank CDs.


    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

    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
