Satellite Pro L20 and DVD drive upgrade

Hi all, starting at this forum.

Satellite Pro L20

I just upgraded the drive cd - rw to a dvd - rw drive. The drive came a host of work so it s in full working order. The drive is not recognized as a DVD player, but works like a cd - rw. Update the BIOS of the Toshiba site gives an error once decompressed.
Does anyone know what I need to do to get it work correctly?

Thanks for your help


This new optical disk drive is compatible with this model of laptop?

  • Satellite Pro L20 - cd/dvd drive not responding


    I currently have a Satellite Pro L20, recently my cd/dvd drive a work stoppage, and he comes back with the error message i/o device driver. It is impossible to read any form of cd/DVD. I can't explore keeps it the d: drive asking for a disc to be inserted.

    Thank you.

    I relly m not 100% sure if my advice will help you to solve this problem, but I recommend to remove the drive from the device and then Manager to delete the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters values completely from the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Contro l\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    Then restart the laptop and check if it helps it worth a try.

    Anyway if it doesn t help chances are readers equipment would malfunction. Maybe the s drive laser lens can not calibrate in the right position and, therefore, it of not possible to read or write CD or DVD.

  • Satellite Pro C660 graphic needs driver upgrade for Adobe Lightroom 6

    I tested 5 Lightroom on my Satellite Pro C660 and it worked fine.

    I decided to do it, and that week Lightroom 6 came out, so I bought Lightroom 6.

    LR6 gets to the start screen, then stops and closes the Windows7.
    I contacted Adobe and they went on my machine and identified the problem as being the graphics card and says I need an update of the driver.

    I've been on the Toshiba site and it says that the latest driver is, which is the one I currently have (and was changed in 2012).

    I've been on the Intel site and their obtrusive says that the machine has a pilot custom then contact Toshiba.
    I looked around the Intel site and tried to install that seem to be plausible drivers, but have not found one that would install.

    My installation includes a monitor LG 22 "connected to the laptop with the spread of the desktop on both screens (laptop and monitor).

    No one knows what would be the upgrade of the driver I need or how can I know?


    The page Intel graphics driver can be used, and you can also download the driver directly from the page.

    This CPU does support your laptop?
    What Intel GPU (Intel HD graphics chipset *) is the support of laptop?

    The Intel download page provides a driver Intel as an exe or zip package

    You need to download and unpack the zip package.
    You will then be able to update the driver in Device Manager, choose the Advanced installation update procedure.

  • Satellite Pro L20 PSL25E - Display driver required


    I'm looking for a new display driver for my Toshiba Satellite Pro L20, model No. PSL25E. I can't find this driver on

    Right now I use Version of Mobile Intel (r) 915GM/GMS, 910GML Express Chipset Family.

    The problem occurs when you use opensource-progs like GIMP.

    After a few minutes, the display switches gray while the laptop is still working?

    Does anyone have the same problem or an idea how I can fix this problem? Thank you.



    You have an Intel graphics card?

    Well, try to use and to install the graphics driver on the Intel site.

    If you will not be able to install it by running setup.exe, then try to reinstall the driver through the Device Manager.
    Here, you can select the graphic card and choose Update driver
    Use the advanced procedure, and then point to files of driver that you downloaded from the Intel page.

    Generally, the installation should functions that it worked on my system too.

  • Satellite Pro L20 - need keyboard driver

    Hello world

    Just need help to find a keyboard driver Toshiba Satellite Pro L20, I re-installed windows as my hard drive crashed and as was a second hand laptop he didn t come with recovery disks.
    I downloaded every other player wireless, screen, sound, touch pad batch but I really struggle to find a m keyboard driver.

    My laptop at the moment alone will keyboard type with the weird key, others do not work at all I use a plug to the keyboard for the time being, not very mobile.
    Any help would be appreciated most.

    Kind regards

    Thank you to everyone who takes the time to read my problem.

    Akuma is right. You should not install driver for keyboard functionality. Used keyboard driver Microsoft standard included in the operating system Windows XP Home/Vista edition.
    So if some buttons do not work, there may be a problem with the keyboard itself and you need to replace.

  • Satellite Pro L20-184: Question about upgrading CPU

    I bought a Satellite Pro l20 184
    I can replace the Pentium M 735 2 MB of L2 cache processor
    FSB 400 1.7 GHz?


    Hello Constantin

    The answer is that no, it is not possible to replace the processor in a Toshiba laptop. The processors used in laptops are connected to the motherboard using a process called TCP (tape carrier package). It is a method of permanent connection and is used in the interest of miniaturization and heat dissipation.

  • Satellite Pro A100 - CD/DVD drive is not listed in the Manager of peripherals and BIOS

    Can Hi anyone tell me what is wrong with this laptop?

    The problem is im using my DVD - ROM drive and it stops working. I went into Device Manager and it wasn't there and it was not in my list of drives. I went and checked the BIOS, it is not listed there either and the BIOS pick up all get them is check the cable or the conection.

    Would be grateful if some knows what happened or if my hard drive is gone.

    Thank you


    If the CD/DVD drive is not listed in the Device Manager and BIOS, it seems to be defective and must be replaced.
    What do you think about this?

    You can exchange the car yourself. Check for a compatible CD/DVD Player user manual or go to an authorized service provider. Technicians can order a new drive to swap.

    Sorry, but if the drive is not listed in the BIOS seems to be defective.

    Good bye

  • Satellite Pro A10 - CD/DVD drive - updated?

    I have an A10 and a few remnants of the A15 which I cannibalise the parts.
    The A10 has DVD playback only, while the A15 motorway had features of reading / writing DVD.

    Desperately the A10 BIOS does not recognize the A15 CD/DVD drive.
    Anyone know if it is possible to obtain this recognition - could I swap chips BIOS with the A15 for example?

    This machine is my toy and I have it running with a Pentium 4 M 2.4 GHz and 1 GB of ram (frustrating it does not accept the sticks of 1 GB!).

    It's a gift so if I break, well I'll be sad - but not heart broken...

    You can only use the BIOS that came out for the Satellite Pro A10 series and which is available on the Toshiba page.

    But why you n t use a CD/DVD drive that is compatible with the model Satellite Pro A10?
    The manual provides details on supported devices.
    I found the user manual [here:]

    On page 4-7 you will find info on the STRANGE devices supported by Pro A10
    -TEAC CD-224th CD-ROM drive
    -DW-224th drive TEAC CD-RW/DVD-ROM
    -Toshiba DVD - ROM SD-C2612
    -Diving Toshiba CD-RW/DVD-ROM SD-R2412
    -DVD-R /-RW drive SD-R6012
    -Hitachi drive of DVD - ROM RDA-8082
    -Player Panasonic UJDA-740/750 CD/RW/DVD-ROM

    Hope that the list could be useful.

    Bacically, even after that run CCleaner and other programs of the laptop is still slow and struggled.

    Hi mate

  • Satellite Pro A120-128 - HARD drive upgrade


    I'm seriously exhausted on HARD disk space and want to upgrade my HARD drive in my Satellite Pro A120 128. Is there a maximum size that I can update? This model takes SATA or IDE?
    Any suggestions on make & model disk HARD upgrade to?


    Normally it should not be a problem to use a HARD drive this lager s like 137 GB because as much as I know there is no limit of capacity on SATA interface.
    But as said Akuma, test it before buying this drive.

    However, an IDE HDD does not fit in this notebook

  • How to use Recovery on satellite Pro L10 with DVD drive broken?


    I have a satellite Pro L10, which is virused. I need to recover Windows. Unfortunately, I can not, because the CD/DVD drive is borked.

    I tried everything until and including the purchase of a laptop adapter HD, but my desktop computer is not a Toshiba so he does not have the recovery disk.

    I've never had to use a "recovery disk" before, so I have no idea how it works - apparently there should be a folder on my hard drive recovery? can someone tell me where I could find it? (I'm quite familiar with the innards of my installation of Windows and have never noticed before). Also, is it possible that this native recovery file has been compromised by my virus?

    Default: can it be fixed using an installation of LAN, and if so, could someone point me to instructions? (My BIOS allows booting from LAN, but not USB, which is irritating).

    Any other suggestions would be welcome.

    Thank you.


    First of all you will not be able to use the Toshiba Recovery disk if you cannot use the CD/DVD drive.
    Why? Because you need to boot from the CD of recovery if you want to install windows from the CD from Toshiba.

    You ask how to boot from LAN?
    Well friend; I doubt that you will be able to do.
    First of all that this could be possible only if you have a RIS server.
    The Remote Installation Services can be installed optionally on Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, Windows Server 2003 or Windows Server 2008.

    It's really complicated and not easy for someone who has never done.
    If you want you can google a little how to create REEFS but in my opinion it s advisable to buy and compatible CD/DVD drive because the STRANGE can also be used for other purposes

  • Satellite Pro A10 - CD/DVD drive has stopped reading discs


    I have an old A10 Pro Satellite which has a DVD rom stopped reading discs.
    He goes through the motions but does not display anything.
    I am attaching a new external DVD RW via USB, and it has the same problem.

    Anyone have any ideas?



    you mean that the external hard drive does not work too? Some software blocking your disks?

    I think that the best way to check if your internal drive still works would try to start with a bootable CD (perhaps with a live linux distribution on it) and to try this with the external hard drive also.

    If you're really a software that prevents the drive work properly, then you should recover your machine with the recovery media to make the drive work again properly.

    See you soon

  • Satellite Pro PSAI5E A1 - HARD drive upgrade


    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro model A1 - PSAI5E and I need to upgrade the hard drive.
    Does anyone know if it is easy to do with this model because it is old enough?

    More, I have to get a 2.5 IDE hard drive?

    Thank you very much


    The model A1 of Satellite Pro - PSAI5E is not known to me...
    Are you sure it s the right model number?

    In any case, you could install a hardware configuration such as Everest Home which would be to scan your HARD disk controller.
    Then you might get details on the interface
    Either it's SATA or IDE interface.

    Is based on the interface, you need an IDE or SATA HDD...

    Can anyone help with this?

    What do you mean sometimes does not work? Do you say, Autoplay, or something else?
