Tecra A11 - Cannot burn CD-R

Q: Tecra A11 - Cannot burn CD-R

Hi,

my Tecra A11 with Win 7 Pro 64 and a Mat****a DVD-RAM UJ890AS is not able to burn on a CD-R. CD-RW and DVD is no problem but when trying to burn a CD-R I got following Error Code: 060277-26-2A031000

I tried the solution in
http://forums.toshiba.com/t5/Computer-Troubleshooting/Error-code-380381-26-2a031000/td-p/172666
- without success. There are no upper/lower filter keys in my registry.

I tried CD-Rs from 3 different brands, I tried CDBurnerXP and the Toshiba Disc Creator - always the same error. There is written the track list (copying a music CD) and then the error appears. The CD-R is not usable any more after this.

What can I do? Is it possible to flash the firmware of the DVD-Drive - if yes, where can I get the fw?
Thanks in advance!

I recommend downloading and running DAP. It can help sort out any driver and firmware related issues on your system

It's worked out well for many of us in the past.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloaddap.org. (This link will open the download page of DAP so you can save a copy to your computer.)

A: Tecra A11 - Cannot burn CD-R

Hi

What brands did you try?
I use TDK ?R and they functions properly.

Additionally I recommend cleaning the laser lens using cotton wool tip and alcohol.
Had also problems reading and burning some disks which have been solved after cleaning the lens.

I possess a tecra A10 complete with Windows Vista Business installed (and backed up to an image file using Easeus Todo backup


However I also have access to a Tecra M10 which came with no operating system, although the COA sticker (product key) is likewise for a windows Vista Business.


My question is: would my Windows Vista Business back up from the A10 work on the M10 (ie would it load onto the M10 hard drive and then work properly

If anyone can advise on this matter I would be appreciative please

Best wishes

A:Can I use Tecra A10 OS disk to install OS on Tecra M10?

At first I must say that Toshiba recovery image is created for each notebook model separately and it is 100% created to work on specific model. Why?
Every notebook model has different hardware platform and all drivers, tools and utilities for certain model are part of recovery image. These recovery images are also tested.

Generally speaking if both models have identical hardware platform (hardware parts) it can be used.

I have 120 gb external drive. I don't mind using the external drive to burn the system image on as i barely ever use it and yes it still works. However, I worry about system image being re written by virus should i ever get a virus, spyware, malware, ect. on my external drive and then the viruses re enters my system everytime i use the system image. The whole point of even me using the system image would be in the event i get a virus and i just can't rid of it or I just really wanna be sure its gone. So i use the system image to delete everything and restore only what was on the system image. So my question is do you think if be the safer bet to just store the system image on none-rewritable cds? Perhaps this is not very convenient as i would need more than probably 3 cds, but would it be safer and would it let me install it on more than 1 cd? I think the system image is about 80 gbs. So i may need up to 9 cds to store 10 gbs each going from part 1 to part 11. Is it going to let me do that? Oh and i just might make a back up on my external drive as just as emergency back up in the given case one or all my cds don't fully work or should one out of 11 ever fail.

A:System image burn to external drive or burn to cds? Question in messag

Hello Trent,

It would be best to create the system image on a HDD instead. A CD/DVD is less reliable to restore from, and more expensive for how many you would need.

You can do what's in the NOTE box at the top of the tutorial below to keep multiple copies of system images on the same HDD. This way you can create a system image backup that you know is clean, rename the backup folder to keep it so new system images will not replace it. Just repeat this every so often to have a updated system image that you know is clean.

I'm not sure if this is the right section but here's the problem:

Yesterday I tried to burn a folder containing pictures (about 650 MB worth) and a few WordPad files onto a brand new blank CD-RW disc (with 700 MB of space). using the Mastered format. When I tried burning the files to disc, I got a message saying "There was an error burning this disc. It might no longer be usable". I tried using another blank disc and got the same error. I also tried using an older CD-R disc that still had plenty of room on it and I still got the same error.

I also tried burning just the pictures and not the files and got the same error.

I then tried to burn just the files and not the pictures. This time it worked. I was able to burn the WordPad files to the disc but not the pictures.

Any ideas why this is happening? I was able to burn pictures onto a blank disc just 2 weeks ago without any problems, but now it won't work.

I'm using a Toshiba Satellite laptop with Windows Vista Basic

Dear forum
The above says it all really.

I see the two look similar, but one is smaller. Are these two models different in other ways please.
Ian

A:Difference between Tecra A10 and Tecra M10

Of course the both notebooks are different.
There are different Tecra A10 models and there are different Tecra M10 units.

For example:
Tecra *A10-13B* supports an Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 2,26 GHz CPU and Intel GM45 chipset.

Tecra *A10-1D2* supports an Intel Core 2 Duo T9600 2.80Ghz CPU and Intel GM45 chipset

A:can i burn a cd/dvd while i'm defrgmenting a partition from where a want to burn data

I can't say that I've tried that myself. I guess it could be possible that the data could be corrupted if the files that you're burning are being moved at the time, but that chance is pretty low I suppose. Give it a try if you want to, but don't be surprised if everything runs extremely slow, or if the CD ends up having corrupted data. I'd advise either pausing the defrag or just waiting until it finishes.

After installing XP SP3 in my desktop and in my laptop, I attempted a DVD+RW burn moving files using Windows Explorer and immediately ruined the disk. The disk shows full with only one file of zero bytes labeled Non-Allocatable Space. This file cannot be deleted. I have ruined several disks in ineffective troubleshooting. Both computers exhibit similar characteristics and I cannot erase nor format this disk in either computer. This problem is not evident in writing to a CD-R, it is limited to DVD burning.
Microsoft finally took control of my desktop and worked diligently with the computer for over an hour. Their troubleshooting process included the deletion of Nero and Roxio programs to no avail. The assigned tech finally had to turn it over to Research for further troubleshooting which has not yet happened.
To briefly summarize, I can burn a CD but cannot burn a DVD in either computer. Inputs anyone?

Hello, I burned a successful ISO with windows and it verified but I often read that Image burn is the way to go with ISO burns, should I burn one with that software as well and is there any difference?

Thank you

A:Disc image with windows or should i burn with with image burn.

ImgBurn is a high quality program, but the larger point is whether or not the ISO burned with Windows will do what you want it to do. If yes, I'd probably just go with it, although there's no reason not to have a duplicate copy if it's really important stuff.

I wouldn't rely on "verification". If you want to know if it works, try using it for its intended purpose, whatever that is.

Generally speaking it should not be a big problem to use an SSD instead of an common HDD.
The notebook supports the SATA interface and you have to use an 2.5? SATA SSD drive.

Hi,

I'm trying one of this popular caddy's that allows me to put a second hard drive in the optical slot bay, I use a Sata to Sata adapter, so there is not really an adapter besides connecting properly:

[http://www.akasa.co.uk/update.php?tpl=product/product.detail.tpl&no=181&type=Enclosures&type_sub =2.5%20Enclosure&model=AK-OA2SSA-BK]

My problem is with Toshiba BIOS that is expecting a ODD device in that Sata port and cames out with a "CD-ROM error", disabling the Sata port.

I have a workaround, if I start the PC, after BIOS post with anything in ODD bay, after starting Windows, I insert the second HDD in the ODD bay, go to "Windows Device Manager" do a "Check for hardware changes" and voil?, the second HDD is working fine, to me this proves a BIOS limitation.

Is there any help, a Beta BIOS or something else, I have the last BIOS 3.00 for this machine installed.

I have Toshiba Tecra M7-132

I would like to improve everything possible

I want to increase the amount of RAM in my laptop but I do not know does my laptop can handle the memory faster than DDR2 533. I have Windows XP Tablet 32bit, I know it will handle only about 3.5 GB of RAM but it's better than 3 GB

I also want to change the hard drive. My current drive is HTS541080G9SA00 Hitachi, 80 GB, 5400 rpm SATA . Will it run with a bigger hard drive with speed 7200 rpm?

I installed all the most recent official drivers and BIOS

What else I can improve

A:How I can improve my Tecra M7?

Hello

According the specifications of Tecra M7-132 on Toshiba page it supports up to 4GB RAM but all 32bit OS support only up to 3.2GB RAM and for Windows XP 2GB is more than enough because it doesn?t need much RAM capacity.
The specification for RAM is DDR2-667.

Regarding the HDD: Larger HDDs are no problem because there is no capacity limit on SATA interface. That means you can also install 500GB HDD or larger. Only important is that you buy a 2.5? HDD with SATA interface.
Also 7200rpm shouldn?t be a problem but they creating more heat and need more battery power. Usually 5400rpm are enough and quieter.

Hi

Did you solve this issue?
Could you install the Windows 8.1 system on this SSD drive?

I think the additional driver installation while setup procedure isn?t necessary since Win 8.1 should already contain the essential drivers.
From my point of few there could be an compatibility issue (maybe SSD firmware update would solve this).

How about the usage of other SSD drives? Do you have the same problem using other SSD drives from other manufactures?

Ok, I though similar issues with Win XP on other notebooks with new HD audio from Realtek.
The point is that you need SP2 and SP3!

The SP2 and SP3 provides important fixes and patches for HD audio?
So first of all uninstall the installed Realtek audio driver.
Then install the SP2 and SP3.
Then go to the device manager and delete the devices marked with yellow exclamation mark.
Then reboot the notebook.
Now Win XP should found a new audio device and should ask for the driver.
No you should install the sound driver from Realtek.
Reboot once again? and now the sound should works fine?

HI, was wondering if anyone has had a similar problem: on boot up the screen flashes red instead of black, with vertical lines (white thin ones) across the screen. When it finally boots with windows xp, there are horizontal lines across the screen with different shades of the colour. The cursor has a box of lines around it. I think it's a VGA card issue but am not sure; has anyone had similar problems? I have visited irisvista on the web, where there are some instructions on disassembly. I got to the connector to the LCD and repositioned it, and noticed that when I appllied pressure in this area I could get near normal display.... can anyone shed some light???
 

A:Tecra S1 LCD with lines across it

It sounds like there might be something wrong with the cable or cable connector. Can you try another cable?

I wonder whether anyone might be able to answer a question for me.

I have a nice Tecra R10-11B and it has been very good for quite a few years. It runs Win XP and does everything asked of it without a problem.

What I would like to find out, though, is whether it is possible to fit a quicker CPU. I have a suspicion that the installed cpu may be permanently fixed and is not replaceable but I would like to find out.

I had played with the idea of replacing the Intel P9400 Core Duo with something a bit new, to allow perhaps installing Win 7 and more memory. There is 3gb of ram installed.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

A:CPU upgrade on Tecra R10

The CPU is socked and this means that the CPU is removable.
But the important fact is that notebook manufacturers don?t support CPU upgrade.
One of the main reasons is the BIOS which is mostly modified by notebook manufacturers.

But let?s start with some basic knowledge:
The CPU has to be supported by chipset and BIOS.

So let?s check what CPU would be supported by Mobile Intel GS45 Express Chipset which is part of the Tecra R10-11B
Here on this Intel Ark page you can find compatible CPUs
http://ark.intel.com/products/35505/Intel-82GS45-Graphics-and-Memory-Controller-Hub#@compatibility

But even if the chipset would support new CPU, some compatibility problems may appear because of the BIOS.
However, the Intel Core 2 Duo CPUs ( Montevina Penryn) were equipped in different R10 models, so probably other Intel Core 2 Duo CPUs would be supported.

By the way: the RAM could be upgraded up to 4GB RAM

The first three lights come on,when I try to start it . Nothing else happens no noise or anything. I have tried taking battery out,starting with external power only still the same.

Does it sound expensive to fix.

A:Tecra A2 is not powering up

Can you please post a bit more about this machine?
Have you bought it as used one and now you try to fix it?

Have you maybe tried to update BIOS and now you have this problem?

On this virtual way it is not easy to offer exact diagnostic but it doesn?t sound good to me. Maybe is BIOS screwed-up. Repair can be pretty expencive.

I want to use this old laptop which originally had win98. I managed to put win xp on it, but it is unworkable slow. Today I tried Lubuntu (a linux distributioon specific for oldies) but that too is too slow.

I just want a simple OS to browse.

A:Which new OS can I use with old Tecra 8100?

I don?t know which ?new? OS do you mean but fact is that you have old piece of hardware and if you want to have well working machine you should install supported operating systems ony.

Drivers for them you can find on Toshiba support page - http://eu.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_drivers_bios.jsp in archive

See subject. I'm not able to add another OS on these laptops (I've got 5 Tecra's S5). Windows XP is on the computer now and because I want to format the computer (classified data) I want to add W7.
When I start no drivers were found on non of the 5 laptops.

Does anyone knows about this issue?

A:Cannot add another OS on Tecra S5, but XP is already installed

I assume you get an message about missing HDD while system installation.
Right?

I think you need to add SATA drivers while Win 7 setup.

There is an Intel Storage Manager on the Toshiba EU driver page which contains the SATA driver.
You can find the Tecra S5 drivers in Archive (Product type -> Archive)

Hi,

In my laptop model Tecra A8 # PTA83L-02K014, current HDD is Fujitsu 60 GB SATA (mode# MHV2060BH).
I want to upgrade it to 320GB/500GB.

Please suggest a replacement HDD.
I cannot figure out which HDD I should buy.

Regards,
kannit

A:HDD upgrade for Tecra A8

This old Tecra was delivered with several HDDs (from 60 up to 120GB). God thing is that this Tecra uses SATA HDDs so; generally speaking HDD upgrade should not be problematic.

Which HDD can you use? In my opinion HDD with around 300GB should be enough for this old piece of hardware. Just buy SATA 2,5? HDD. Talk with your local dealer and buy high quality product.

HDD replacement is not complicated and you can do it alone. If you need some help you are welcome.

Hi All,

I have a Tecra P4 - PTS40A-02100V which will not recognise the new Hitachi 80GB disk (HTS541080G9SA00). The laptop is out of warranty and replacement disk was purchased. This is the second new disk the supplier has sent me. The supplier is an official Toshiba supplier in Australia. Customer has paid ~$400AUD for the disk, so this could be an expensive exercise.

I am able to get a vanilla Toshiba Restore to work on the PC, however our organisation uses a WinPE based PXE boot environment to kick off image and build of Windows XP. Using a generic Windows XP in our environment is not possible.

Diskpart in WinPE will not recognise the disk. Partition Magic and other popular apps will recognise the disk, others won't. I can create an NTFS partition and format. Can create basic MBR and MFT, no luck recognising. Also I can use the disk in a USB caddy in Windows XP on another PC fine.

This new disk will display the same issues in another known working P4. I see no options in BIOS to get around the issue. I have updated the BIOS to v3.20, however the result is the same.

Any clues?

Hi buddy,

Just for testing: Is it possible to install Windows from Toshiba recovery disk? Have you tested this?

And interesting to know would be what the authorized service provider says about this behavior. Did you ask the guys already?

Hello,

I own a Tecra A8-133 (PTA83E-0E403MBT ).
To give a kick to my aging laptop I bought a corsair neutron GTX SSD. Unfortunately, after
many attempts, and some corsair support, it seems the SSD is not compatible with that TECRA.

I'm ready to buy a new one, but, obviously I want to be 100% sure the SSD is compatible this time.

How can I find a list of compatible devices for this laptop ?

As a SATA 1 laptop, I know the performance will be restrained, but I don't care too much.

Any help would be appreciated.


Thank you

A:Compatible SSD for Tecra A8-133

Hi

What?s wrong exactly?

I found some specification of the mentioned SSD drive from Corsair and it looks like the SSD drive is designed to support the latest high-speed standard SATA III (6Gb/s).
But it?s seems to be fully backward compatible with SATA II and SATA I. So it should be compatible?

From my knowledge there are no any special info regarding the SDD dive compatibility.
In some cases the SSD drive manufacturers provides an SSD drive firmware updates and sometimes such update helps to sort out some issues.

For the graphics card on Tecra S1, is the mother board attached to it so that it cannot be seperated? If so, how much would it cost to replace the board? Thanks for the help~
 

A:Question about Tecra S1

About $75 to $150, used. Much more new. Better to buy a better laptop. Or lurk on eBay until you see the right package.

I just bought a Tecra A50-a-1DJ .
The 256GB disk (SSD) looks like formatted :
1,46gb : recovery partition ;
217,47gb : disk C :;
8gb : partition for hibernation ;
11,54gb : primary partition .
I would like divide the C: drive space so that it becomes:
C: 100,47gb
D: 100gb
F: 17gb
I tried it with the built-in Windows (disk management) that with Paragon Partition Magic :
The answer is always that I can't create more than 4 partitions .
As a workaround?

Hi, I've a Tecra that came with Win Pro 7 Sp1 that was upgraded with supplied Recovery DVDs to Win 8 Pro and subsequently online to 8.1 and Win 10.
Win 8 and 8.1 ran fine but with so many problems on Win 10, I eventually went for "scratch" install with the recovery Win 8 DVDs.

Zapped the entire HDD using the Recovery DVDs but finally get the following msg after Win 8 had been re-installed: "Windows Setup could not configure Windows to run on this computer"
Ran "MSoobe" , as recommended on other forums and while this advanced the process, Windows ultimately did not run.

Any ideas anyone?
Thanks - davidtjm
