Satellite Pro 2100: TEAC CD drive problem - cannot access CDs


I got my Satellite Pro 2100 for another few years.
So far it has worked well.
However, now the cd player is always displayed the yellow light just after trying to load a cd, followed a quiet thump. This means that I can not access the content of the cd (audio or data).

The drive is still recognized by Device Manager, and I'm told it works well - I know better however, it most certainly isn't! the drive will still appear in my computer, and I can always try and discover the contents of the cd inserted, which is always empty!

Ant help or advice would be most appreciated, because I really want to re-preparation of the system!

Hi Simon

The satellite Pro 2100 is an oldie ;) and I guess that you pointed out the CD/DVD drive all the time long.
I would not be surprised if this player is dead. For me, it looks like the end of the device.

Until it must be said that I'm afraid you need to replace the CD/DVD drive with a new m.

Best regards

  • Satellite Pro 2100 - Exchange optical drive


    I m a proud owner of a Toshiba Satellite Pro 2100 (1.9 GH). Already done HDD Upgrade (as already said) of 250 GB and 512 MB RAM upgrade.
    Now, I want to upgrade the DVD-ROM in a DVD burner. I heard the fact, slimline drives are jumperset by the firmware, not the real riders.

    Can someone tell me weather I need to buy a "rider" master drive or a slave - drive "rider"? Or is it possible to replace the drive with a cable-select-disk?

    Toshiba-readers are always 'closed' to enter computers laptop toshiba? All the optics of toshiba notebooks readers bridge the same?
    Would be happy to receive some answers :-)


    Hello Lonestar

    AFAIK all optical disk drives cannot be used with all portable models. There must be a difference with assignment of pins. Because of this, you must use only compatible disks. I have the same info as you. All readers are already "closed."

    I checked the user s manuals document. There are several compatible with your model of laptop sides, but none of them is DVD burner. It can be really hard to find the compatible DVD burner.

  • Satellite Pro 2100 - what HARD drive do I need?

    Hi all,

    I just got a Toshiba Satellite Pro 2100, but the hard disk has been removed for the protection of the data. Now, I don't know what type of HARD drive, I have to get PATA/SATA?
    Can a little help if you please?


    You can buy this store on the computer HARD drive because it has an IDE interface. You can t use a HARD drive with the new SATA interface.

    So I agree with Akuma. Already, I think that everything is written here.

  • On the Satellite Pro A 60 hard drive problems

    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro A60 with a hard disk of 40 gigabites origin. When I tried to change the old disk with a disk travels Digital Scorpio blue hard 80 gigabites, the does'nt of the bios recognizes it. Is there a solution?

    Hallo Haziz

    If you swap the HARD drive IDE HDD compatible and of course not defective it must be recognized correctly.
    Please do not expect solution to this if you didn't inform us a HARD drive replacement.

    Is - this brand new HARD drive?
    You can then Exchange disk HARD BIOS to the default settings and check again the value.

  • DVD Super Multi Drive problem - cannot access any CD - Satellite A100

    Hi, 1st post:

    My Satellite A100 features a DVD Super Multi drive, which worked very well. However I cannot now access any CD - error message ' D: / is not accessible. The request could not be performed because of an i/o device error."is displayed.

    However I can still access DVDs without problem. Can anyone help?
    Thank you.

    can try this
    Right click on the drive w / the problem
    Recording tab
    and then check the box "enable recording on this CD player.

    If this does not solve it you have Roxio Easy CD Creator is installed to check this; EN-US; 315350

    or if you get an I/O device error message, this problem may occur when Windows tries to use a transfer mode that can not use your CD player
    To resolve this problem, change the transfer mode for your CD drive in IDE channel properties. To do this, follow these steps:
    1. Click Start, right click my computer and then click on manage.
    2. under the (Local) computer management, click Device Manager.
    3. in the right pane, expand IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers.
    4 right-click the channel where your CD drive is connected, and then click Properties. In general, this channel is secondary IDE channel.
    5. in the Advanced Settings tab, in the zone transfer Mode for the device that represents your CD-ROM drive, click PIO only. As a general rule, this device is device 1. And then click OK.
    If the problem is not resolved after you change the transfer mode for the secondary IDE 1 channel device, your CD drive should not be located there. Use the same procedure to return to the DMA transfer mode if available. Then, repeat these steps to change the transfer mode for IDE devices in the following order until the problem is resolved:
    Primary IDE channel, device 1
    Secondary IDE channel, device 0
    Channel IDE primary note, device 1 is connected to your boot disk. It's the hard drive that contains your operating system.

    hope that fix you :)

  • Re: Satellite Pro P100 of hard drive problem.


    Uh, to sum up my problem, a vital file... or two, has been deleted by a rather malicious Trojan horse, I had a week or two it y a. I had cleaned it the command registry and such and everything was fine. Until I tried a disc to my hard drive... The unit seems to recognize that there is a disc in there and I checked because nothing "seems to" be physically wrong with it. He won't read it. So my question, is there a link to download or something or another or not, that could lead me to a place where I could safely re - download the drive of files for the Pro P100.

    And yah... I have no experience of the computer, or similar, so I just ask a pretty silly question. xD


    If the problem is Windows related, you should be able start from the CD or DVD without any problem. So I recommend this audit with the recovery disk or other bootable disk.

    If you can't start t with him, the drive is may be defective or the lens needs to be cleaned with a Microfiber cloth.

    Good luck!

  • Satellite Pro 2100 - new HARD drive is not booting

    I wanted to update my SP2100 with a WD1200BEVE. (120 GB of WD).

    Copy of disk via USB + speakers worked, but after changing the disc nine does not start: the laptop hangs up with blinking cursor.
    Already checked that the partition is active and even a new installation from a CD of XP has the same result! The BIOS seems to accept the drive (if not installing via CD should have failed) so where is the problem?

    Any tips?

    Hi Kannengiesser,

    Which is really strange that you can t start up disk even it s recognized in BIOS correctly...

    You have the Toshiba Recovery disk? If so, you can try this disc factory settings. If it works, it was just an installation problem.

    But I couldn't imagine also that the new HARD drive is not working properly last week I had a similar problem. Made a HARD drive upgrade, but a few days later Windows didn't start because the HARD drive had a bad sector, now I'm waiting for a replacement drive.

  • Help identify the Satellite Pro 2100 download driver

    I have a Satellite Pro (marked below as a PS210E-00C3G-EN and a P4 2000/256/30 G, 15XT, CDW, LW). I think it's a satellite Pro 2100, whatever.

    Problem I have is that when it comes to downloading the drivers, I can't find anything approaching this model of the selection process. I've searched the forums and there's not much on this machine otherwise than in this one, so I was hoping someone could help me identify this machine especially for driver downloads... Yes, guess who has reinstalled Windows XP without checking I had all the specific stuff Toshiba tucked away first?

    For now, I have a load of things works without drivers, and it is not at all optimal...

    Thanks in advance

  • Satellite Pro 2100 jumps down and now demand HARD drive password

    Hello world

    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro 2100. I have some problems when you access the Internet; When I start the Internet, there is no problem, but when MSN messenger start the laptop goes down and I have to turn off manually the laptop. This would be a kind of firewall?

    Last Sunday, this problem occurred when using Skype; But now the computer has completely collapsed. The system first asked "inserting a disc system. I didn't know what they meant, so I turned off the computer a few times manually to see if it would disappear.

    When I turn on the laptop, Windows will not start upward and the system asks a black screen "the password HARD drive". Does anyone know what this means and where I can find it? And means that my laptop is dead, or am I able to fix? Can someone help me?

    Thanks in advance!

    I know, it's the HARD drive password cannot be deleted.
    If the HARD drive password has been activated and you don t know the password for the HARD drive, then you will not be able to use the HARD drive more. :(

  • Need new driver NVIDIA for my Satellite Pro 2100


    Anyone know if there is a newer version of the NVIDIA graphics driver that comes with the satellite pro 2100? I looked on the Toshiba downloads section and on the NVIDIA site, I have not had any look to find everything. They simply stopped updating this driver?

    Any help will be thank you very much and I do a search before posting, but haven't found anything.

    Thank you

    Hello Steve

    Satellite Pro 2100 is fairly old unit. It is about 6 years old. Graphics card is NVidia GeForce4 420Go with 16 MB of memory only. Now the question: do you really want that Toshiba should support unit of 6 years with the latest NVIDIA driver? Please don't be crazy on me, but I really don't understand what you expect.

    A more interesting question to me is: for what purpose you need new driver? You want to use with newer games, or maybe you some graphic problems watching movies DSVD?

  • Toshiba Satellite Pro 2100; battery (probably) problem

    About a year ago and a half year I bought the Toshiba Satellite Pro 2100. Every thing worked perfect up what a month ago, and then my adapter not workt more. With a multimeter I discovered it was broken, so I bought a new (from you guys)

    But 2 weeks later a new was also broken. Then I used my father's map (it has the same specifications) which merged in 1 week.

    What is going on? Where is the problem. I think it's my battery.


    It seems that your adapter is damaged by the oscillation of voltage.

    I can't image the laptop that has the same voltage as the AC damaged HQ with a swing of voltage!

    IF you wish, you can contact a Toshiba Service partner. They can check the power supply, I have the laptop and HQ.

  • Satellite Pro 2100 and new hard drive


    I saw on another post that L0nestar has installed a Western Digital WD2500BEVE (250 GB, 5400 RPM) in a Pro 2100.
    The question I have is what the interface is SATA or EIDE? The original drive indicates it is a SATA interface, but the WD2500BEVE is an EIDE interface?

    Hope someone can clear this up for me.

    See you soon.

    AFAIK all older models of laptops have hard drives with interface EIDE. Satellite Pro 2100 comes with disk HARD Enhanced IDE (ATA-5).
