Satellite A60-302: CD Player read DVDs and CDs but not burned discs

I have a Toshiba laptop: Satellite A60-302 and I have a problem with the cd player. It can read DVDs and records I buy but it will not read burned discs (even the ones I burned with the portable computers own burner). Only from time to time, he will read a burned disc.
I tried to clean the eye of laser of cd players, but it did not help.

Anyone know what could be the problem?



This sounds like the CD burner doesn't burn CD correctly.
You suggested that you used different types of CD.
In the user manual, you will find a list of compatible media.
These media has been tested and it works correctly.

But if this happens with all CD, so possibly the drive cannot work properly and only a replacement would solve that problem.

  • Equium L20-264: CD/DVD player can read but not burn discs

    Hi all

    I need help. My laptop cd/dvd driver does not recognize the discs inside. It only happens when I try to burn a disc. She can read but not burn the discs. What could be the solution? I tried different brands, the last time it was Maxell. The manual suggests Mitsubishi discs, but I'm not sure that it only works with the Mitsubishi discs. It can read any kind of disc.

    So I'm in trouble, please help.



    In the manual, you will find a list of media recommended because this media has been tested and were working properly.
    However, I use TDK CDs and DVDs and it works as well.
    Juan suggested in another ad that sometimes 3rd applications or DVD copy locks are responsible for some driver problems:

    What I mean is that it is not easy to give a generally the solution of these problems.
    You should try different media, burning software and if it doesn t work so it s is a malfunction of the equipment. In this case, you will need to replace the drive.

    Dear Toshiba

    I'm Maria of the Hungary. I brought a computer Toshiba laptop Satellite A60-302, because I wanted something to burn and read CD and DVD. In my view, that can read DVDs and CDs and burn CDs. I wish that mobile knowledge really cannot burn DVDs, or I couldn't do. Please help me and write me as soon as possible by e-mail.

    Thank you.



    I search in the internet and found that the Satellite A60 302 only supports playback of CD-ROM, DVD-ROM, DVD-R/RW/RAM and for CD-ROM and CD - RW writing because it is a COMBO drive!

    The drive is set up and could not be changed by a technician!
    Here is some additional information:

    CD-ROM, CD - R 24xMax
    CD - RW 12xMax
    DVD-ROM 8xMax

  • Re: My driver TEAC DV-w28ECT used to read DVD and CD now it reads only DVDs

    My TEAC DV-w28ECT driver used to read DVDs and CDs, now, he reads only DVDs. What's happened and how can I solve this problem? I have Windows Vista

    Try to remove the CD/DVD filters in the registry.
    When the associated CD/DVD (such as iTunes, Nero, virtual CD software), the software is installed, they install filters in the registry, which can cause compatibility problems.

    (1) run Regedit (start-> Run-> Regedit)
    2) navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
    (3) in the right pane, delete the "UpperFilters" key and delete the key "LowerFilters".
    (4) restart.

    If your CD/DVD programs stop working, you will need to reinstall them (preferably with an updated version).

    This utility can remove the filters for you:

  • How to format Satellite A60 302 without using the CD/DVD drive


    I have a laptop SATELLITE A60-302, and I had a problem with cd player. I want to format the computer (WIN XP) and I wanned to ask if I can format the computer not by the cd player but another way as disk on key or something...

    Thanks :)

    Your best bet might be trying to use an external CD/DVD drive to install Windows XP (must confirm that your laptop can boot from USB CD/DVD). I would not recommend it otherwise because they are pretty complicated and you will encounter other issues.


  • Satellite A60-302: black and white photo on TV


    I have connected my Satellite A60-302 to my TV using brand also SCART S-VIDEO AND TWIN PHONO LICENSE that I bought from maplins. Transfers of image and sound on TV when I press Fn + F5 buttons but the image is in black and white, the sound is ok.

    I tried the color on the tv settings but it makes no difference, any help would be appreciated


    The color on the TV settings won't help. Check please the port on your TV settings. As far as I know by the use of the pot from S-video to TV, it must be enabled properly to get the color. I put t know exactly how it works with cable SCART, but check out several channels if you should enable the option of scanning on your TV.

    I also hope that you bought the product of high quality.

  • Mini-PCI I have a Satellite A60-302 - myth or reality?


    I have a Satellite A60-302 (PSA60E-00J030HU) and theoretically there is no MiniPCI slot in the computer (at least it does not mention the Hungarian manual), but the online manual (preinstalled on your laptop) refers to a cover on the bottom as "Cover WLAN", that material incidentally doesn't not part of this model. (And the part of the motherboard under this coverage is not something that resembles a slot MiniPCI, well that according to the English manual and specifications online to some Toshiba Page, I found in the Linux knowledge base, it must be part of this config.)
    Allright, there is no MiniPCI, I said, I should buy a PCMCIA CardBus WiFi adapter. I thought I'll check on the toshiba online store, to be sure, I'm buying quality products. But when I choose 'Specific product Options' and choose my config, the Bank's research concludes _only_ MiniPCI solutions for my laptop, which theoretically (and physically) does not support.
    Is it not a bit strange? :)

    beginning of the "742" series machine was delivered with Wifi (Build-in).

    But even if a Mini PCI card would fit in your Machine, the problem is that you have no generation of antenna in.

    These are normally inside the display cover.

    So the best way is to buy a Wifi USB key. His fabulous work but not manufactured by Toshiba.

    Running perfectly with my A60-102...

    Good bye

  • Upgrade to 1 gig Ram on a Satellite A60 302

    Hi there, 1st time user here
    I bought a Sodimm DDR 333 mhz 1gig of ram card for my Satellite A60-302 and installed today - but without success
    The laptop turns on but the screen remains black and then the laptop turns off, it also emitted a continuous beep. I thought it was because the RAM was too, but he can handle 1280MB of RAM and 256 enjoys so it should be able to handle
    RAM has not been affected by the static-hands then someone can help?
    Thank you very much

    You re right. The unit should be able to handle the module memory 1024Mo in one location.
    I have only one explanation why the laptop will not work after the upgrade.
    Either the module is not compatible and not right or it s simply corrupt.
    I recommend using the modules recommended by Toshiba.
    These are:
    PC2700 256 MB (PA3311U - 1 M 25)
    PC2700 512 MB (PA3312U - 1 M 51)
    1024MO PC2700 (PA3313U-1M1G)

    PA3313U-1M1G is a module of memory-SO DIMM 200-pin DDR 333 MHz PC2700.
