i have a toshiba laptop its about 6 months old the burning software i got with it is sonic DLA
a while ago i was getting a message saying something about the RAMASST.exe not eing compatible with something else (sorry im not sure what it was) and one of them could not function while the other one was. but it has worked fine since then.
and just recently i was trying to burn a music cd on Windows media player and it would start but couldnt finish and was suggesting the disk was dirty but i have tried numerous disks. so i tried on sonic but the same thing was happening. so i tried to "open a writable cd folder using windows explorer" and i got the message "D:\ is not accessible Incorrect function." since then i have uninstalled sonic but now i get the same message as soon as i insert a blank cd.

i have no problem burning dvds

thank for your help

I spent several hours with this problem recently - turns out Toshiba's DVD-RAM drives have a function that will turn off CD recording (I'm using my Toshiba right now).

Open My Computer and right click on the CD drive. Select Properties, then select the Recording tab. Check the box to enable recording and you should be good to go!

I've got a Matbleepa blah, blah, blah 8415. (close to yours). My Toshiba is an M45 model.

Are you sure that you clicked on the DVD drive (the other drive won't have this tab)? If so, then there's something messed up with your setup. Do you have the Toshiba tools installed (I removed them from my system). If so, try looking around the Toshiba tools for a similar setting (I spent 4 hours in the Charlotte, NC airport trying to figure this out - so I could copy pics of my grand-kids for my own kids!)

That's the message!!! Did you reboot after enabling it? Did it still make no difference? Then you may have a problem with the installed software (IMO the Toshiba stuff is not needed and a bit buggy).

You may have to reinstall the Toshiba utilities, or try and fix XP.

This worked for me (but YMMV (Your Mileage May Vary)). I formatted my hard drive and then booted off the Toshiba recovery CD. When it asked me about the Toshiba tools I told it "No" and don't have half of the problems that I had with it installed.

FWIW - the format and reinstall was actually the result an accident. I was testing some imaging software and accidentally deleted the partition with the image on it (after I had formatted the Toshiba) - so I had to use the recovery CD and was amazed when it let me chose to not use the Toshiba stuff.

Another thing to consider is that the drive may have died on you. Any chance of trying another in it's place?

You can check the Toshiba support website for a new driver.

Yes, formatting will wipe everything off of your hard drive - but there's options (such as a USB drive) that'll allow you to save your stuff before formatting.
