I have a Toshiba Satellite 1805-S207 laptop with dvd/cd-rom SD-R2102. It reads data and plays music but will not write to or format a disk. Since I had a lot of problems with Roxio/Acraptec, (wouldn't do anything) I use Nero 6. When I try to write or burn, the disk is always blank afterwards. When I try to format I get an error that says "Could not format error writing to disk". The device manager tells me the device has no problems. I've gone to services and placed IMAPI CD burning on automatic and it is started. A while back I tried to watch a DVD Movie. It started fine but then got choppy, crashed and wouldn't work at all after that. Haven't tried that recently. And yes I've cleaned the lens and am using good clean cd/rw disks.
Got any Ideas?
