Toshiba Satellite CD/DVD issue
« on: April 17, 2008, 07:42:12 PM »
Hello everyone,

I have a Toshiba Satellite P105-S6114 running XP. For the year that I've had it it has run great.  As of lately I haven't been able to use a CD in the DVD-R drive.  The CD tray opens, I put a CD into it, it tries to read it( I see the light turn on and hear the cd spin) but it just stops and won't recognize it.  I try to open it in "My Computer" but it just prompts me to insert a cd into the drive.  I don't know what happened in the past month to make this happen.  The catch is this.....  It will play a DVD just fine.  It recognizes it and plays it right away.  I updated the driver and even deleted the driver and started fresh.  Nothing worked. Has anyone ever heard of this?  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks

    Could be the particular CD you put in there.

    However, I once had a gateway laptop need a replacement Drive put in.  Maybe someone else has a better idea.

    Some drives have a seperate laser for CD and DVD functions and also burning...sounds like a shot laser.
