This is in a toshiba laptop A215-S7428. I can no longer use my cd/dvr internal. Thought it was a bad unit but bought a new one and the computer does not read it either. When I go thru to the computer it does not even show there. I have gone to and downloaded the info on www.vistax64.com/drivers/1242...installed.html I have copied the windows registry editor version 5.00 with the upper and lower filters under it. I even copied it to notebook and saved as run.reg. I do not know what to do from there. please let me know if anyone knows. I have no use of the cd/dvr. It will not read any discs including the recovery disks either.

My toshiba A215-s7428 quit reading the internal cd/dvd drive. I read and thought it was a bad drive. Bought a new drive and it still doesnt read it. Went to www.vistax64.com/drivers/1242...installed.html as catmilk advised in past. Downloaded the windows registry version 5:00 and copied to notebook. Do not know what to do from there. Can anyone help ? When I go to computer in the programs it does not show that there is a dv drive.

What does "Captain747 " have to do with this issue?

You need to use a good subject, as some of us do not read all threads, just those with good subjects.

No, it is not showing up anywhere. Sorry if I put this in the wrong spot. I am new on here and this is where I got lead to in order to post my question. But the cd/dvr is not showing up anywhere and it is a brand new drive now doing exactly as the old one.

I tried to load defaults and save. Still nothing and it seems that it has diappeared in the bios as well. I have removed and put the drive back in to see if ir might pick it up that way also but still nothing.
