Laptop CD-ROM Problems - Help
Posted on 2004-08-29
I have a Toshiba Satellite 1905 with an SD-R2212 CDR/DVD ROM drive. OVer time, the CD drive has begun to cause more and move problems. First it was just noisy (I.E. Spin up and then stop, then spin up and then stop before finally reading the CD), but now it wont read some of my burned CDs, and comes up with CRC errors on certain store-bought games. On some of my burned CDs, windows says the CD is blank. I have been able to read this CD in the past. This doesn't happen all of the time to all media, but it will and wont read certain disks. It reads DVDs and Audio CDs fine, its just the data CDs that are the problem. I tried reinstalling Windows XP Home on my computer which didn't solve anything. Any assitance anyone could offer would be helpful.
