Problem with drivers for Toshiba drive in Windows 7
Posted on 2011-03-06
I'm having a problem getting a DVD drive to work in a Toshiba Satellite L505D laptop. Windows 7 Ultimate found the drivers for it automatically, but there is a small yellow exclamation point over the CD portion of the device in Device Manager and it won't read either CDs or DVDs.
This is some kind of fancy "super-drive" but I'm used to Windows of any sort, not to mention Windows 7, being able to load these kinds of drivers automatically. When I re-install them, Windows says they might not function properly. I found a driver on DriversGuide and tried to install it but Windows said it had a better driver. I ignored this and still got the same result.
Is this just a bad DVD player or does anyone have any other ideas?
I'll be grateful for any advice!
