Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A105 Notebook ?

DVD RAM not reading the DVD on a Toshiba Satellite A105 laptop

\015 When I insert a DVD into the drive, I get an I/O device error. A couple of weeks ago, I was able to view a a certain DVD. I tried the same DVD today and got this error message. Under DeviceManager, I expanded the "IDE/ATA ATAPI Controllers" node and changed settings to PIO mode. Nothing changed. What else can I try? Thank you.\015

Answers :

First open the "Device Manager" to check for any error messages related to the device and click on "Start" and select "Control Panel" .

Now double-click on the "System" icon then click on the "Hardware" tab and click the "Device Manager" button. A new window appears, and displays whether the device is working properly. If there are any errors, click the "Troubleshoot" button and follow the given onscreen instructions.

Check\012 the DVD that you are trying to use to and ensure that it is free of \012dirt and scratches and the proper format compatible with your drive.

Now uninstall any drivers that may be on your computer from previous DVD drives.

Now download the latest driver updates for your DVD drive model from Toshiba website & install it.

Also check on Toshiba website that your machine has the minimum requirements to operate the drive.

Now restart your computer & check your DVD drive.
\012I hope issue has been resolved.


If the same problem is still occurring, get the reliable technical assistance at http://www.vtechsquad.com/toshiba-support/ for troubleshoot all kind of Toshiba PCs(laptop and desktop) problems.

Did you try to insert other DVDs? if it works then the DVD that you are trying to play is faulty. But if all CDs cannot be read i suspected it's a dvd-rom drive faulty. you need to replace it.
