Satellite Pro A60 does not recognize the accept/DVDs blank

My computer will not accept blank CD - R disc so I can burn data on them, but my computer will not accept blank DVD discs that I want to be able to use to store more data.

In the drive of my computer D reads "DVD - RW", I guess so, but am not sure that this means that my pc should be usable with DVD-R and DVD - RW discs but it do not accepts / acknowledges these when I put a try to burn something on them.

My computer also does not accept / recognize DVD + R Virgin discs as I have tried those, just in case they might work.

Help please!

Have you also tried to burn DVD-R discs?
I had also some problems with DVD + R discs, so I changed to a DVD-R and since all works well! :)

I don't use Windows Media Player to burn discs, I use CD Burner XP. It is a freeware tool, very small and fast. It works on most versions of Windows, and you should try it too!

Also check the Toshiba page for an update of the firmware!

  • Satellite 1900 (PS192E) - does not recognize the CD/DVD

    Hey all,.

    I just bought a Toshiba Satellite 1900 (PS192E) and place an old 20 GB HDD from an old laptop.

    When I boot, the screen is in VGA 16 color mode, it recognizes the DVD player, but does not recognize the CD/DVD when inserted. I tried to install and run the utility "driver robot" Toshibas, but the display is such that I see all of the screen to start the search.

    If there is someone out there who could give me some advice, I would be extremely grateful.

    Thank you very much



    OK, you have installed the disk HARD of another laptop but too format the HARD drive? I mean if the HARD drive performed from another laptop, you need to reinstall Windows because now you have other hardware installed.
    What version of Windows is it?

    Is your AC adapter malfunctions or there is something wrong with the power supply to electronic s laptop.
    In the first case you could purchase a new compatible AC adapter and could check if the laptop can run successfully.
    The second possibility is a serious hardware problem, but in this case, the laptop must be checked by an authorized technician.

    I guess that you do not see the CD/DVD drive in MY computer area.

    I think I can help you
    First go to Device Manager and search for CD/DVD drive.
    Select this device and delete it from the list.

    Now, open the registry (type regedit in the search) and remove the filters above and below to the following registry key:

  • 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!

  • Satellite A110-294 does not recognize the wireless card


    the question is:
    Why my Satellite A110-294 does not recognize the wireless card?

    I re - install Xp PRO with all the drivers.

    I have try all the drivers Wireless: Wlan intel + proset intel atheros wlan + wlesscmgr

    I don't understand, can you help me?

    Thank you


    To my knowledge, the A110-294 uses the Atheros WLan card and therefore the Atheros Wlan dirver should be the right one.

    You can find the latest driver for Atheros WLan here:

    Just a question;
    You see the local network card in Device Manager? I mean, you should see an Ethernet controller or an unknown device in the network adapters
    The driver is missing, then the device must be marked with a yellow exclamation point

  • Computer does not recognize the CD/DVD drive

    For these last days, my computer does not recognize the CD/DVD drive.  I have tried everything - publishers of registry, check the physical connections inside the computer, the system restore and install Fix - It programs.  However, the computer does not recognize this drive.  I also wonder if it is a hardware problem.  The light on the drive is a constant in green, and does not have the Open button.  And when I use the bent-paper-clip-in-the-little-hole and can open the drive, it will not read the disc.  Please advise...

    I fixed my problem with the BIOS operating system & not recognizing not not my DVD player to reinvest the solder on the motherboard.  You can find instructions on how to do it here:

    There was a little crazy with my video drivers when I started first, but everything works after resetting the BIOS by default.

  • Satellite L30-105 does not recognize the 1 GB of additional RAM

    Hi there I hope someone can help me

    I have a Satellite L30-105 PSL33E, which came with 1 GB of ram installed (2 x 512 MB made by TeamViewer)
    and it's terribly slow with vista, not to mention programs.
    The toshiba website says max RAM is 2 GB, so I bought a Kingston 1 GB ram chip to increase the ram to 1.5 GB. I thought should try before moving to 2 GB

    However after installing memory vivid it's show still only 1 GB in windows and in the bios (894 + the rest for video). It has the latest available BIOS on the site 3.10, yet still does not recognize the chip.

    The chip is installed in the lower slot, including the original 512 at the top (closest to the keyboard)

    Are limited to only some of the Satellite of RAM?
    The old subjects indicate if kingston does not work try corsair.
    Other topics suggested to change slots
    Others suggest that it may have only two of the same ram chips in IE 2 x 512 or 2 x 1 GB, you may not have 1 of each

    Can anyone help? everyone knows about similar problems?

    I will not buy any more RAM to try different brands for the same issue to occur


    The L30-105 is able to manage the 1024Mo modules in each location it should be able to update the RAM up to 2 GB.

    > Why the RAM 1 GB module cannot be recognized?
    Perhaps the two modules are not compatible with each other
    I would recommend using two identical modules of the same manufacturing
    I use Kingston modules, they are ok for me

  • 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.

    Best regards

  • Satellite A205: Vista & BIOS does not recognize the CD/DVD drive

    After a crash of the sudden family Vista system premium on a Toshiba Satellite A205 the system does not recognize the DVD CD - RW drive. Neither in Explorer, Device Manager, nor BIOS.

    Laptop is only a few months old.
    Have you tried the Toshiba check system - it ignores DVD disk check.
    Tried Windows Update - does not help.
    Tried registry fix - does not help.

    Cannot use the CD to reinstall all drivers - because it is not recognized.
    The DVD drive LED is on. If the disk looks ok physically.

    Does anyone have an idea what to do?

    Very strange what s
    Try this:

    Access the BIOS and set the default settings and save the changes.
    If it doesn't help then I put t see any other possibilities for contact ASP in your country for a CD/DVD drive control and possibly a replacement

    You said that the notebook is only several months old so I assume that the warranty is still valid and that's why everything has to be done for free

    Good luck my friend

  • New installation of XP PRO sp3 does not recognize the 500 GB HD

    OK, here are the details:

    System: Computer PORTABLE of Acer Aspire 1700 Pent4, 2 GB of RAM, 80GB (3.5 "full-size, trainee) IDE HD [this is the original HD on this laptop of size important which is designed to use disks 3.5" hard].

    Initial situation: Windows XP Pro (SP3 integrated) installed on HDD of 80 GB and works without poblems. BIOS does NOT show the ability of the intern HD in the BIOS screen. BIOS reports only the model and the serial number of the HD, and there is no options to specify the HD type/format (e.g., MLA, etc.)

    Available: Win XP Pro bootable CD slipstreamed with SP3; It is tested and verified work well to install PC or laptop!

    When running XP Pro on a partition internal 80 GB HD, and when I join a brand new WD 500 GB IDE HD via USB, HD is recognized correctly. I can partition and copy data on the HD 500 GB with no problems!

    When I replaced the old 80 GB HD with the new HD 500 GB HD interning on the laptop, I have the following problems:

    1. I can NOT boot into Windows XP Pro (SP3) which was Ghost on the HD 500 GB of the old 80 GB portable HD it recharges, and if I try the console recovery or secure boot, then the laptop restarts also.
    1B. I have Ghost xp partition to 80 GB HD to a piece of spare HD (40 GB) and replaced the 80 GB with the 40 GB HD and was able to start the laptop without problem. So the problem is NOT related ghost!

    2. I can't perform a clean install of Windows XP Pro (SP3 integrated) because Windows XP Setup recognizes the HD 500 GB GB 131 HD. Therefore, the remaining capacity is not recognized.

    3. I can NOT perform the installation of Windows XP pro (SP3 integrated), even if I have previously partition new HD 500 GB by attaching it to a free desktop PC and use Partition Magic, partitioner of Paragon Disk or other partitioning tools. After partitioning prior, when the 500 GB HD is installed on the laptop (as a trainee HD), then win xp installation lists quality HD of GB 131 and lists the existing partitions as corrupt!

    4. Curiously, if I use Knoppix, Debian, Ubuntu or linux boot CD Mint and start the laptop computer with one of these linux distributions, then the linux installer recognize the HD properly during the phase of recognition of material and later during the phase partitioning HD, the linux system to report a full capacity of 500 GB available for partitioning. In addition, when there are partitions, partitioning linux program then lists these partitions properly as well!

    Considering the 4 points and especially MS Windows XP PRO (integrated with SP3, which should recognize HD with sizes exceeding 137 GB limit - from MS says you must be at least XP SP1 to overcome the size 137 GB limit - and that the different distributions of linux can see the full-size HD 500 GB with no problems) which is exactly the problem with Win XP? Why it does not recognize the full capacity? And how to win xp recognizes a 500 GB capacity, if the new HD is attached to the laptop via USB as an external drive when running XP PRO (SP3) of the 80 GB internal HD?

    so... Can anyone sheds light on the issue with Win XP Pro installation on HD 500 GB IDE?



    Hi Palcouk and Doc,

    I think that's the final answer!

    Although, there is a mixture of simple to complex responses to the problem at hand, what it all comes down is that there is a significant difference between the installation of Windows XP and Linux installer program. The XP installation program needs help from the BIOS to deal with HD, and if the BIOS does not support, XP not has no facility to remedy the situation. OTOH, most of Linux new kernels rely on the BIOS for a limited number of extended, but communicate directly with the hardware, in this case, with the HD and therefore manages the material accordingly.

    It seems among users of dual-booting (win/linux) using old PCs, it is a matter of very pretty. What they end up doing is using the first 137 GB that is seen by the BIOS without problem for XP (either as a single partition or divided into several partitions), and the rest of the space is used for Linux because linux has no problem.

    I guess that it really nails the problem with my laptop to a BIOS NON-lba-48-bit!

    Then close this thread as answered or matter who has more to say about this?


    P.S.: It was very nice meeting you fellows and appreciate all the help and tech expertise.
