Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A135-S4467 Notebook ?

CD drawer won't open or close or recognize blank disc

\015 My drive D: suddenly stopped working after an intensive session of ripping and burning audio CD's.could the problem be overheating? Driver update needed?Hard drive too full?\015

Answers :

Not very likely to be overheating. CD's don't really have drivers & if it was working OK then a firmware upgrade isn't needed. Full drive won't cause the problem.

Pretty much the drive has just died. If the motor runs when you hit the door button but the tray doesn't move - try *gently* pushing the door closed. If it doesn't go - new drive.

If the motor doesn't run when you push the button, you can check to see if the power cable somehow came off but that's extremely unlikely. Most probably you'll just have to get a new drive.

If you've been in the habit of pushing the tray to start it closing, stop!! That's the most common cause of your kind of problem. ALWAYS open and close with the button.

Good luck!

First of all I'm running Vista HP SP1. I put a disc (CD or DVD)in either of my LG CD/DVD 20x drives and try to view the disc by clicking on "My Computer" and then the "drive" that contains the disc. A window pops up that tells me the disc is blank and it's asking me if I want to format it. If I open and close the drivea number of times it will eventually read the disc....sometimes. If I start a program like "nero" or "dvd Fab" and then put the disc in, the program will recognize the disc no pr
