Default HELP needed with my Toshiba cd-rw/dvd drive

sponsored links

 
My pc recognizes the device and says it is working properly, but the drive will go from working and not working periodically. I tried to find an updated driver, but on the toshiba site it says that windows 95 and over does not need one. I have had the problem with 2000 pro and XP pro. can anyone help? e-mail me at [email]nass_88@hotmail.com[/email] or reply please.

Yep, you don't need the drivers if you are running Win98 or later OS.

You can try this, remove the CDROM from Device Manager then reboot to let Windows autodetect & reinstall the proper driver for it.

The same thing happened on 1 of my 4 yr old CDROM. The laser just quit working.

Try the drive on another system. How old is it?
