Satellite Pro M30 - cannot burn CD/DVDs


Since I got my machine, I was not able to burn CDs or DVDs either. I get a 'power calibration error' that normally I guess means the disc broke. But, because it is a whole new drive (less then a month) and it can read all CD and DVD I throw at it, I doubt that it's a hardware problem. After a few minutes of Googling, I came across a thread made by other people encounter the same problem with this same drive (Mat * a UJ - 820 s), but no good solution (at least none that worked for me).

Here is a log from Nero ( (also tried older versions)). I hope this is of some use, because this is getting very frustrating... Thank you.

Here's how I just fixed my misfortunes:

In short: go to controller - device manager and select IDE ATA/ATAPI: try to change only "PIO" mode instead of "Ultra DMA Mode" on the IDE channel that uses your DVD player, namely the secondary IDE channel (since 1 is probably your drive). It should say "Location 1" on the tab where the reader is NOT zero.

Ultra-DMA is obviously more recent and faster and better, but I think that it infiltrates the specified performance of the PIO-mode. It took me about 10 minutes to write about 3 gigs.

(1) uninstall manually each device driver that seemed even remotely connected to the "Mat * one" or "DVD" or "CD" INCLUDING "Standard dual channel PCI IDE Controller" and "secondary IDE channel".

(2) to ensure a hard reboot (power off)

(3) Windows to automatically detect any material it appears after reboot begins

(4) one of these elements has been the "secondary IDE channel"... or in any case... go to Panel of-> system-> hardware: secondary IDE channel.
b change of "Ultra DMA mode" "PIO" mode only

(5) go to control panel-> hardware-> device-> IDE ATA controllers Manager / ATAPI-> secondary IDE channel: Transfer Mode = "PIO only" to ensure that this relocation, you just live kept this adjustment, otherwise set it as such and again, DO NOT change your "location 0" define, show your secondary ide channel tab should say "location 1". "

(5) - hard reboot again

(6) the system should come in and automatically detect your CD-ROM / DVD-ROM / Optical Drive / DVD - RAM drive both at the next reboot.

It should then work.

  • Toshiba Satellite Pro M30 cannot use USB 2.0

    I can't use USB 2.0 on my laptop (OS = Windows 2000).
    Where can I download this driver-USD for this Board (Toshiba laptop motherboard).



    Have you seen yellow errors such as exclamation points in Device Manager?
    If not, in this case it of not necessary to install all the drivers.
    Moreover, the operating system automatically recognizes the USB ports.

    But what USB device doesn't work? As far as I know if this external device needs more energy than the 500mA so it is possible that the operating system can not recognize this device.
    In this case you need an external power supply for this part or you try to use the USB hub.

  • Satellite Pro M30 - compatible DVD players


    I have a Satellite Pro M30 and the optical block has problems, recognizing most of my DVDs.

    The real player is Toshiba DVD - ROM SD-R6112.

    Thank you


    As far as I know this unit has DVD +-R/RW (DualDrive) and in my opinion the best solution is to swap it with the same. On this way, you will be sure that everything works correctly.

    Unfortunately, there is no public document on the hardware upgrade and just Toshiba service partners can tell you more about it.

  • Toshiba satellite pro m30 USB problem

    I have toshiba satellite pro m30 and HP scanjet 4600 scanner.when I connect the scanner directly to the notebok with its ' original usb cable there is no problem. But if I connect the scanner to the laptop with a laptop usb extension cable cannot initialize the scanner. There is no problem if I connect the scanner to the VAIO laptop with usb extension cable. What can I do?


    could you describe the difference between the original USB cable and the USB extension cable?

    The laptop and the printer works correctly with the original USB cable, but it seems that the extension USB cable is an inexpensive which does not fulfill the technical specifications and the laptop has a problem with this issue.

    To solve the problem in my opinion you could do an update of the BIOS, look if for your printer is a new driver available and reinstall the USB drivers.

    Also, you could test whether USB, the same problem occurs with other cables.

  • Satellite Pro M30 - NVIDIA graphics controller problem

    Hello everyone

    I have a Toshiba Satellite Pro M30 with a Nvidia GeForce FX graphics controller. ([Image of the motherboard |])

    My problem is when I turn on the PC and wait a few seconds red and white vertical stripes begins to appear on the LCD and it cannot go after the BIOS password screen. I can type the BIOS password but when I hit OK or button that ENTER the laptop freezes. ([See image 2 |])

    In very rare occasions where the laptop was turned off for a long time, I listen to him on and he could overcome the BIOS password screen but freezes after a while: ([see Image 3 |])

    I plugged it to an external monitor and nothing has changed.
    I removed the inverter (responsible for the lightning of the LCD screen) and the problem is still there.

    Always to blame the graphics chip from NVIDIA.
    I read here that it is not possible to replace them because they are soldered to the motherboard. But I want to, where can I get a laptop NVIDIA graphics chip. They sell somewhere?
    I have a friend who works in an electronics manufacturing company (SAGEM) and told me that they have the tools needed to replace any piece on any Board of Directors.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Hello, my friend

    I agree with you. It must be a faulty graphics card. I put t believe you can buy a graphics chip separately but you can buy mainboard used laptop on eBay. In my view, Exchange Board is no problem for you.

  • Screen jumping and overheating issues on my Satellite Pro M30

    Hey everybody!

    I have a Satellite Pro M30, the screen seems to wobble a bit, probably due to a loose hinge. Can you please help me with this problem?
    In addition, my laptop seems to overheat, how do I clean the dust to stop overheating?

    Thank you

    Hi mate!
    For the screen issue. As it is a hardware thing, I suggest that contact you a local ASP. Of course, you can try by yourself to this problem, but I can say from my own, fitting the screen isn't the easy thing to do on your own, if you have no experience in that.

    To clean your laptop from dust, you can use compressed air jet. Also make sure the cooling modules are not blocked by objects on your table, because if you've blocked, warm air ponds and cannot be updated.

    Hi Malva,

    Your DVD drive is visible in Device Manager? If so you can try to run the option "Troubleshooting" from there.

    It must also propose in your BIOS. Make sure to do.

    Finally, you can try to remove the device from your laptop and then restart. The system must detect the drive and reinstall it.


  • Satellite Pro M30 and eSATA

    Hi all

    I recently bought the external drive western digital mybook premium ARE. This disc has an eSATA (external SATA) port.

    The problem is that my satellite pro m30 (model #: psm35e0021jar) is not the external SATA port. I found an ADDONICS (eSATA, ExpressCard 34) and another similar product from SIIG (eSATA II Express Card).

    The question is:

    1.) these products going to be compatible with my fairly old laptop?
    2.) is the hard drive of my laptop SATA technology is or what?
    (3.) what brand of motherboard used in my laptop?

    Thanks in advance and I cannot wait for the answers.


    1.) these 3 products of third parties are not known to me, but as you know the Satellite Pro M30 does not support a SATA interface and if you want to upgrade the HARD drive, you will need to use the HARD disk with interface IDE (ATA-5) increased.
    (2.) No, as indicated above the laptop supports the IDE and not SATA
    (3.) the Satellite Pro M30 using motherboards Toshiba ;)

    A hint; If you have a SATA HDD, you can use it as a external HARD drive. This HARD disk can be connected via external USB sata controller.

  • Keyboard unresponsive - Satellite Pro M30


    I recently bought a Satellite Pro M30. The keyboard responds more fully. When I turn on the laptop and when it ask me to login credentials I'm simply not able to enter, nothing happens when the buttons are pressed.

    I have re-installed the unit using the CD of restoration but no luck. Interestingly, when I put the laptop in sleep mode, and when she returns to the normal mode, the keys work for a few seconds. If I kill the explorer.exe and launch a new, key works also for a while.

    Because the keys work when the computer comes out of standby, the keyboard is not completely dead/failure. My OS is XP Pro SP2.

    Help, please.

    Thanks in advance,

    Sanjay Kay


    The best way to check the functionality of the device is to preinstall the original recovery CD or DVD unit. As I see you have already done this.

    If the problem persists, I suppose that there is a hardware problem. I put t know if the unit is new or used one, but you should contact the customer Service of your country partner and explain the situation. Guaranteed valid will cover all costs if some of the material is defective and should be replaced.

    Good bye
