Satellite L300 - my does reead ' DVD-RAM DVD drive t

My DVD - ram drive (mast * a DVD - ram uj-850 s) doesn t read DVD s, in fact it only reads CD.

I had this problem about a week ago and I m sick of this. My lap top is Toshiba Satellite L300.
It came with Vista but I installed Windows XP Home edition instead of him, I had to change the SATA option in the BIOS from AHCI to compatible to install Windows XP Home edition, but after the installation of Windows XP Home edition and try to change to AHCI again just a blue screen and reboot when attempting to enter windows Windows XP Home edition.

All the said forums that I must install a file then I will be able to go back to AHCI and the file is (7zim06ww.exe) so I've really download it and every step that they told me to do it, and I tried to change the SATA to AHCI option and it works perfectly without any stupid blue screen, I thought that the problem has been resolved , but in fact nothing has changed and I can't read or burn DVDs l and I m sick of this problem and need help with it.

Please help people

    Is there any point in doing this?

    Thank you



    To be honest I m a bit confused.
    You are not able to boot from THE disks; Windows disk, disk recovery, disk Linux?

    If it of the case, then it means that your CD/DVD drive is faulty.
    Why? Because the CD/DVD drive is recognized and controlled by the BIOS when booting from CD or DVD.

    When the Windows operating system has started, the CD/DVD drive must use the Microsoft common driver which is part of the Windows operating system.
    This means that you n t need to install ALL the drivers in order to get the job of CD/DVD.

    If you can boot from any disk, but if the CD/DVD drive is not recognized by MY computer, then I recommend this:

    Before you remove the upper and lower registry filters, remove the CD/DVD drive in Device Manager and then go into the registry and remove the filters. Restart the unit.

    Good luck

  • Satellite P300 - 19 p: CD/DVD drive is trying to read the disk then ejects


    I hope someone can help,

    I have a * Satellite P300 - 19 P *.
    I've had this laptop for 3 months and it's the last frustrating problem; occasionally when I insert a DVD or CD and close the CD tray tries to read the disc and then ejects the disc, even if I remove the drive and close the drive drawer pops out again,

    If I shut down the system and restart the problem still exists.
    I checked the drivers that are updated and the operating system is Windows Vista Home premium 32-bit.

    It is the fourth time this happens and the problem seems to fix it of self and reappears as and when!

    If anyone has had this problem or can anyone help because it makes me crazy.


    I think that s a problem with the CD/DVD drive.

    In your case, I would go to an ASP (authorized service provider). They should check your laptop and change the drive if necessary.
    Here, you can search an ASP: decision-making supported downloads & => find an ASP.

    Good bye

    What happens when you start the webcam app?
    All programs-> Toshiba-> webcam

    Did you install other 3rd software part as for example the Skype that could access the webcam?

    Extra tip: go to BIOS and set it to default, save changes, and then restart the laptop.
    Start Skype for example, check the settings in Skype webcam chose correctly.

    It would be really interesting to know if the other software would be able to use the webcam.

    By the way: have you installed Toshiba face recognition? This software use and access the webcam as well
    Then sometimes it would be possible that this software could block the webcam and webcam tool could not work

  • Satellite L300 - 22L - who to upgrade RAM?


    I have laptop Satellite L300 - 22L. Can you tell me which is the best RAM to my system in speed and capacity?


    Satellite L300 - 22L belongs to the PSLB8E series and is equipped with an Intel GL40 chipset.

    This means that for the upgrade of the RAM you need of modules with the DDR2 667 MHz specification for a maximum of 4 GB.

    Theoretically, you can buy modules with these specifications of each production, but I have good experiences with the Kingston modules. I always use them to improve my notebooks and never had any problems.

  • Satellite L300 - Windows does not recognize the connected device

    I have Toshiba Satellite L300 series, PSLB8E. It came with a basic version of vista pre-installed window and it was working fine until I decided to update.

    I took it to a computer for an upgrade store to ultimate window.
    This version worked very well for a few weeks until I have received a message on the screen that says: 'I have to get a genuine copy of windows.

    Because ever since I started having problems with my usb ports, my computer couldn't detect something I connect to it (usb, printer, mouse, etc.) he worked with modem only, sometimes it would open my external hard drive but it does not have its drivers.

    I then decided to buy a window 7 home base, but instead of this problem will disappear, that it got worse as my usb ports completely stopped working.

    I tried all the stuff I can think, but nothing has worked. the problem I have is that I don't have the original disc in Windows vista

    Someone please help!

    I agree: installing drivers for Windows 7 is very important to get all devices work correctly. Windows 7 is much better than Vista OS and I don't see any reasons why your L300 Sat should not work properly with this Win 7 OS.

    I recommend you to install the Windows 7 system again by install completely clean.
    After that, download all drivers Toshiba Win 7 of the Toshiba UE driver page.

    Very important are the drivers as value added package, Chip Set Utility, card reader controller, display driver, LAN driver, WLan, Sound Driver, Storage Manager and driver of the touchpad

  • 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:

    Device name: TOSCD001
    Number of units: 1

    CDR101: Not ready reading drive X
    Quit, retry, fail?

    Insert the recovery CD #1!

    What should I do?

    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.

  • Satellite L300-144 does not start


    My laptop Toshiba Satellite L300-144 arrested beginning after about 2 weeks of no use with the following sympthoms:
    -When DC cable is unplugged, none of its lights are turned on and pressing the button "power on" (and others) does nothing;
    -When DC cable is connected, 'DC IN' led is _blinking green_, led battery is _blinking orange_, others are turned off. by pressing the button "power on" (and others) does nothing.

    Waited for over an hour with DC cable connected try to charge the battery of the laptop without change.

    I have not found the meaning of this signal (DC IN green, battery flashes orange flashing) in my manual.

    What is this means problem with the battery of the laptop?

    How can I fix?


    Flashing led DC-IN is not a good sign.
    Of my knowledge led begin to blink when a hardware error has been found.
    I'm not sure if this will help but try a short workaround:
    -remove the battery, disconnect the adapter
    -wait about an hour and then reconnect the two part.
    -try to turn on the laptop

    Check if it helps.
    But if this work around won t help you, then you would have no choice but to get in touch with ASP in your country.

    Sorry, but that's all I can suggest.

  • Satellite A500-141 - the CD/DVD drive will not recognize any disk in the status bar

    I watch the DVD yesterday and he played upward halfway through and almost jerky. Ejected and thought no more of him now, the player will not recognize any disc, be it video or sound. I tried a system restore but still the same thing that it is not read disks. Any help appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi quietly,

    If your CD/DVD drive doesn't work, how do you have a system restore?

    Is the CD/DVD drive listed in Device Manager correctly or you see a yellow exclamation mark on it?

    Maybe the lens is dirty and must be cleaned with a Microfiber cloth. Open try CD/DVD and try to clean the lens with a clean Microfiber cloth.
    Check this box!

  • Satellite L40 PSL48E - missing CD/DVD drive


    I can't find my CD/DVD drive. The driver is probably corrupted or missing (Code 39).
    What should I do?

    Thanks in advance


    This problem is known to me and she related to the incorrect registry key.

    First, you must remove the drive CD/DVD from the list of devices in Device Manager.
    Then, you should access the registry and should remove the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters completely from the following registry key values:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    Finally, restart the laptop and check the drive after Vista acknowledged again.

    Good bye

    When I turn on it shows the Tosh screen then just a line of underscores in the upper left side and that's it.
    I've tried everything. F12 F2 holding 0 at startup but still nothing.
    The hard disk may have crushed the thought but put it in a basket and now have a copy of his hard drive, so nothing wrong there.

    IM completely lost now.

    Help, please.

    Thank you Russ


    You have tried F2, F12 and 0, but have you tried to press F8 immediately after switching on the device?
    Then you should see an advanced startup options.

    Here you must choose to repair my computer and Toshiba HDD recovery.
    This should launch the installation from the HARD disk partition.

    Have you created the recovery disc at the beginning?
    I presume that you didn t.

    Well, if the procedure with the HARD disk partition will not help, then you will need to order the disk recovery from here:
