My Toshiba CD Player Won't Burn

Save

Windows XP, Windows Vista and Windows 7 all come with software that allows you to burn files to compact disks. Windows Explorer allows you to create data CDs (CDs stored with any variety of file types), while Windows Media Player allows you to create audio CDs.


If the disk drive installed in your Toshiba laptop computer fails to write files to CD, the CD driver may be corrupt or out of date, or CD writing capabilities could be disabled on the drive.

Reinstall the CD Driver

  • Open your Web browser and navigate to "toshiba.com." Press "Enter" or click "Go" to navigate to the Toshiba website.

  • Choose "Services & Support" from the main menu. Choose "Laptop Computers" from the options.

  • Choose "Product Support" from the main bar to open a new menu. Select "Laptops" as the category. Choose your laptop's product line from the options.

  • Select your model. Click "Go." Choose "Downloads" from the tabs. Select your operating system from the drop-down menu. Select "CD" from the list of drivers.

  • Select the latest CD driver from the list. Click "Download Now." Follow the instructions in "Description" to install the driver to your computer.

  • Sign in to Windows XP as an administrator. Click "Start." Click "My Computer" to launch Windows Explorer.

  • Right-click the CD drive. Choose "Properties" from the contextual menu.

  • Click "Recording." Check "Enable Recording on this drive." Click "OK."

Tips & Warnings

  • Low-quality CDs and high write speeds can cause the burn process to repeatedly fail. Decreasing the write speed, or using a high-quality CD, may allow you to copy files to disk.
