I'm trying to help a friend with their laptop. It's suddenly stopped recognizing the DVD drive.
As it's patching was out of date I've applied Vista SP2 and anything else that was overdue. I've also tried pulling down drivers from the Toshiba site as well as the pretty popular MS reg fix to remove upper & lower filters.
I've tried a different drive in the bay which didn't work either.
The drive does not show up in Device Manager at all - not even as an unrecognized device.
Is there anything else I can try before I hand it back & write it off as a mobo fault?
Toshiba Equium A210-1C4 Drive is labelled as Toshiba Samsung TS-L632 I've installed the drivers listed on the Tosh site.
