Satellite A210-12U: Matshita DVD-RAM UJ-8505 won't read disks - Error Code 39

Hi.

i've had My A210-12U for about five months now and recently for the past few months i've been having some problems with the dvd disk drive.

The thing is that The drive won't actually read any disks, the drive will detect that a disk has been inserted but it just won't read it. It's happend for about a months but its only recently i've really know whats been wrong with it.

The drive i'm currently using is a MATSHITA DVD-RAM UJ-8505 ATA

I've scanned the drive for problems with the toshiba assist utility but that didn't come up with anything so i decided to check the drivers.

Windows Vista gave this Message: Windows cannot load the device driver for this hardware. The driver may be corrupted or missing. (Code 39)

I uninstalled the drivers and drivers on there and installed new ones that i downloaded here on the toshiba website.

What i really want to know is: Is it a problem with the drivers? is it a case that operating system isn't detecting the hardware? or is it a situation where i should have the drive repaired on its warrenty?

cheers Dan

Correct
Hi

Don’t worry buddy… I don’t think it’s a hardware problem. It looks like a corrupted registry entry and it should be solved easily…

Remove the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters values completely from the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
…and reboot the notebook

Check also this Toshiba FAQ article:

…and the Microsoft Knowledgebase

Bye

Yes… you should do this.
Then reboot the notebook and check if it helps.

I would appreciate a feedback… good luck
