I have a Toshiba Tecra with the above drive, but for some reason it will not read or write Dvd’s. I have done both on it before but it seems to fail 9 times out of ten and recently just will not write anything at all. Is there something about these drives or is there something i could do to fix it?
yoru drive is probably dying , nothin you can do just replace it
Try to restore you system windows registry to month or so back and see if that resolve your problem and drive works normally if not I agree with above poster that is to replace a dying drive.
Ask your seller how to fix it.
Flashing it will make the warranty gone.
