    Cheap External CD/DVD drive with quickish read/write


    I've searched this website and Google to try and find a cd/dvd drive that is not too expensive but has quickish read/write speeds.

    I have a new laptop which does not have a built-in cd/dvd. I have bought an external blu-ray/dvd/cd drive but when using EAC to make a copy of my cds the read speed is extremely slow.

    Does anyone know of only a cd/dvd drive that is not too expensive but still has pretty quick read/write?

    :)

  2. CD/DVD drive not reading DVDs

    My CD/DVD drive cannot read/write to DVD, yet it reads and writes to CDs! The Device Manages shows that the drive is working normally, yet when I insert a DVD, I get the error message "no media"! I have tried uninstalling the drive and re-installing it,
    but the fault persists. I am also running Linux O/S in the same PC, but on a separate hard drive and Linux cannot rear/write DVDs either, which suggests that the fault is either in the drive itself or in BIOS, perhaps. By the way, I rarely use the CD/DVD
    drive. Only to install software and that is no more than a few times a year, so I doubt that the drive is worn.

    Finally, I also have an old IDE CD/DVD drive and when I connected it it could not read/write to DVDs, but worked with CDs.

    I am running Windows 10 Home V. 1809 O/S build 17763.475

    AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual Core Processor 4000

    Any help would be much appreciated,

    Best regards,

    Alex

  3. CD/DVD drive cannot read/write DVDs - CDs OK

    I am running AMD Athlon 64x2 Dual Core Processor 4000+ 2.1Ghz with NVidia GeForce GT730 graphic card and my CD/DVD drive cannot read/write DVDs. When a DVD is inserted the drive runs for a minute or more and then I get an error message either "insert the
    disc and try again" or "no media"!

    The drive reads and writes to CDs OK! I do not use DVDs very often. Usually only to download software and burn to disc for installation. I have not needed to to that for some months, so I do not know when this fault developed.

    Is it possible that a Windows update changed the setting and disabled the DVD part of the drive? If that is the case, perhaps the best option is to wait in hope that this problem will be resolved in a later update.

    Needless to say, any suggestions would be most welcome.

    Best regards,

    Alex.

    External CD/DVD Drive

    Hello everyone,

    I'm new on the forum, and I have a quick question.
    I have a Toshiba Satellite X200 laptop, it has been dropped and the cd/dvd drive will not read anything, it just sounds like it is loading, and blinks yellow.
    I'm going to get an external cd/dvd drive for now until the laptop is taken in (if warranty isn't over).
    Is there any specific external cd/dvd drives you guys know are compatible with the Satellite X200? Or will I not have a problem with compatibility.

    Appreciate it,
    Jeremy.
