This drive works perfectly sometimes but sometimes it doesn’t read DVD’sre DVD’s that I’ve burnt and read previously on this exact drive but has no problem reading commercial DVD discs.
I’ve already updated the firmware and as far and drivers (although none are provided on the toshiba site, i only used the ‘update driver’ windows utility).
An interesting clue is that the drive will read and boot from a Windows disk I burnt (and was previously able to read in windows). but once it gets into Windows it doesn’t just shows the DVD drive and disc label as ‘CD Drive’. Also when trying to read a disc in DVD Decryptor it gives a, “error retreiving TOC” error. Also sometimes when I insert one of these same types of burnt Windows discs it sometimes recognizes it as a blank and tries to launch Nero. I’ve also attached the Nero info tool log to this thread.
This problem has been frustrating me for so long, I’ve searched high and low on the web and although there were many similar problems with this Toshiba drive none of the solutions (checking DMA in device mgr etc.) posted worked and the symptoms weren’t exact. Any help at all would really be appreciated.
