Satellite C670-12P - CDDVDW TS-L633F is not working

Question: Satellite C670-12P - CDDVDW TS-L633F is not working

CD/DVD- rom player TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-L633F of my Toshiba Satellite C670-12P is not working anymore.

I'v tried several CDs, with pictures, DVD and music CD also storage CD and it opens as if I load a new empty CD only asking me options to format or make a new disk.

But all the disk I load in my player are already written with data and not rewritable.
In my system I can see all is working correct, but it is not true. I can't read any disk now and I don't know how to fix it .

I tried already with windows fix it, but it could not fix the problem.
So I realy don't no my options. I found also not a solution on the site of Toshiba itself and I'm really disapointed in it. I don't use often my player but now and then I like to play a dvd to watch. Also my back ups I made wil not be working after all.

I don't know if the problem is known by other users and if there is a solution for me.

My system is windows 7

Thank you for reading and hopefully someone has a solution for me.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am not the most computer savvy person so I need a little help.

It also tells me to Click +'Check for solutions'+. When I do that a pop up appears and says that Windows could not load driver software.

Any help is appreciated.
Also, running Vista.


Answer:Satellite A200 - TSST corp CDDVDW TS-L632H ATA Device no working

This can happen when you install CD/DVD software not designed for Vista. For example if you install iTunes v6 for XP, it may load an incompatible Filter Driver in Vista and cause problems.

Try removing the UpperFilters and Lowerfilters. Sollow this guide:

Toshiba Satellite L750-134. Windows 7 (64 bit).
TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-L633F stoped working couple days ago without any reasons.

I still can load a disk but don't see it in Windows.
In the device manager there is a yellow triangle with an exclamation mark.

There is a note in properties: Windows wasn't succeeded to start this device as information on its configuration in the register is incomplete or damaged (Code 19).

How to solve this problem?

Answer:Satellite L750-134: CD/DVD drive TS-L633F doesn't work - Code 19


Delete the CD/DVD drive from device manager (the device marked with yellow exclamation mark)
Then start the registry (regedit in search)
Here you have to delete the upper and lower filters from the follwing registry key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM \ CurrentControlSet \ Control\Class \ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

Hi all,

I have a C670-19K for a while now ( Greek web site for info about the laptop )

Have upgrade it a bit : 8gb ram and new ssd things are running little bit faster now, bought a cooling pad 17 inch ( 2x160mm fans spin at 1000rpm ) that doesn't do much work on Toshiba armor, have clean and change the thermal paste over time at CPU and GPU, have clean as well the fan + the thermal metal body part , battery have died over time haven't replace that !

I recently made a format ( yesterday ) and today decide to have a further look in my gaming section to see if everything is alright, i have a application to counts the temperature to make sure i`m running good without issues when gaming or multitasking
Before the format i have seen numbers up to 99c with out making the laptop BBQ, but for safety reasons it was turning off which fine for me
After format when it reach 84~85c computer is turning off for safety reasons !!

Am i missing a specific driver that i didn't add ? And which is that ? Can u provide a link for this ?

Did have a look at the web
Bios doesn't have adjustment for temperature
Have formatted the laptop sometime ago and it worked fine afterwards
Have installed the drivers from Toshiba web-site in order to run the laptop

Thanks for your time !!

Hi all,

My Satellite notebook (C670-12x) does not recognize any hard drives (bios startup). I tried with several hard drives. I was wondering if a Bios update would help? Is there a Flash Bios update for CD boot?

I allready tried to convert the Bios driver to an image/bootable CD, but that didn't work.

Thanks in advance,

Answer:Satellite C670-12x does not recognize any HDD

I don?t think BIOS update will help. Try to set BIOS to default settings and check it again. If the same happen again it can be that HDD controller is defective.

So now my computer boots and reboots all long day... I see the beginning "Toshiba" and after it is a dark screen. I tried to reinstall Windows 7 but the computer says that my HDD is reserved to toshiba (why?) my second and my third partition too! So no system, no Windows, no data. I tried to launch Windows 10 in a "bootable" USB flash memory, it works, my computer says "clic here to reboot" and when it reboots in the screen i can read " Windows meets a problem of communication with a "p?riph?rique" connexion belong to your computer" thanks Windows !!!! :-(

Hi buddy,

This has nothing to do with customer support.

I think you have set the wrong keyboard language. If you press Shift + i you should get the @ sign?

Important is that you change the language from EN (US) to EN (UK). You can do this if you navigate to control panel > clock, language and regional > regional and language options. Go to keyboards and languages tab and then click change keyboards. Click Add and select the keyboard layout you would like to add.

> My question is, Can I upgrade my current processor with all of processors on that list?

Probably yes.
But fact is that nobody would be able to answer this question since such CPU upgrade isn?t officially supported. This means that notebook manufacturers don?t provide any information regarding such upgrade and compatibility.

You can try such upgrade at your own hand and hope that BIOS would be able to handle such new CPU.

Hello Support,

Quite recently I have noticed that the clock / time (displayed in the system tray) of my Satellite C670-12P is going crazy, typically slowing down a bit, but sometimes jumping backwards in time by one hour or even more ! The biggest leap was more than 3 hours backwards... As you can imagine the OS (Windows 7 Home Premium) doesn't like that much and I've had to suffer possibly related hangs.

After some googling it seems that it might be related to an aging CMOS battery (which i've never replaced indeed). After some more youtubing I have learned how to unmount the keyboard under which the CMOS battery would probably be located (as seen on the similar Satellite C series' video). To my greatest surprise, however, unmounting the keyboard of the laptop only revealed a "hole" in the plastic board with some connector, but not the expected CMOS battery -- see attached picture I took and red circle where I was expecting it.

Am I going down the wrong path here ? How can I make sure that it is a weak CMOS battery the root cause of the clock / time going crazy ?
Once that's proven, where is it actually located in the C670-12P and can I easily replace it ? I've seen that sometimes its soldered on the motherboard!

Thanks in advance for your advice and assistance !

Satelilite c670 - 188 WOW shutdown after 20 - 30 minutes game.
my notebook shutdown cpu temperature 86-90 degrees.

I used to play normally. Now your computer is overheating!
the laptop is on the stands with fans!!!

Answer:Satellite C670-188 shut down playing WOW


It seems high temperature causes this unexpected shut down.
Did you use the notebook on the table?
There should be enough free space to keep the air circulating.

Furthermore you should check if the cooling fans are not clogged by dust or debris.
This might affect the air circulation too? I clean my fans from time to time and this keeps the temperature low.

What graphic card driver do you use?
You should use the Toshiba one because such driver is modified for mobile usage? the other drivers don?t support an GPU overheating protection and this might cause such unexpected shutdowns.

For me it sounds like the keyboard would be faulty.
The point is that if the USB keyboard is OK then the issue cannot be related to the software settings.
So it has to be hardware fault.

Get in contact with an Toshiba ASP in your country and ask for a keyboard check and replacement

Answer:Satellite C670 screen replacement problems


As far as I know there are different Satellite C670 series.
I found some details regarding the PSC3SE, PSC3NE, PSC3LE, PSC3QE sub-models.

It looks that the LCD module 17.3" W HD+ (1600 x 900px) uses a LED backlight as the light source.
So you should be sure that you are using the right one.

I don?t think that the display controller on the motherboard would be faulty because in such case the original display would not work too.

The LCD display and motherboard are connected by inverter cable, inverter board and
LVDS cable. You should make sure the LVDS cable is firmly connected to motherboard.
If the connection is loose, reconnect firmly and restart the C670 notebook.

I wanted to update my display card (Intel HD Graphics 3000), then i went on Intel for the update and he told me that "A customized computer manufacturer driver is installed on your computer. The Intel Driver Update Utility is not able to update the driver. Installing a generic Intel driver instead of the customized computer manufacturer driver may cause technical issues.
Contact your computer manufacturer for the latest driver for your computer" .

After, i went on Toshiba Drivers and search the driver, but the version of my display card was equal than your driver, since 4 years that there is not update and the latest update of Intel HD Graphics 3000 is (10/04/2014)
Why Toshiba did so not updated the graphics card?

Answer:Display driver update for Satellite C670

Drivers update for mobile machines is pretty limited and it is big difference between mobile machines and desktops.
Due to specific design and cooling system that machine has GPU must be ?under control?. With new driver GPU can offer more performance but result is more heat that can be dangerous for notebook?s hardware.

This is the reason why notebook manufacturers don't offer such updates and offer just adapted display drivers. If you try to download driver from GPU manufacturer directly there is always a indication to use driver from notebook manufacturer?s support page.

I have just got a Satellite C670. Overall I am happy with it, but it makes a strange "popping"noise every 5 mins or so.

It seems to come from the right hand side under the number pad.
It does not seem to affect performance.

Any ideas?



Answer:Satellite C670 - Strange 'popping' noise


Maybe it is a noise coming from the HDD.
Sometimes I can hear a similar noise on my non-Toshiba notebook.
This appears since the HDD upgrade?
Usually it?s nothing serious? so I think you don?t need to be afraid

Hi. I have a C670 which I had problems starting up. I tried the back up discs I had created when i got the machine but they failed to work. I had an extended warranty with the company I had bought the laptop from and I sent it back to them to get the problem sorted. As the back up discs didn't work, all they have done is reinstall windows and I've lost all the bundled software and the HDD recovery system on the D drive which come on the machine.Lesson to learned here I think.

If I was to buy a set of toshiba back up discs would this take the machine back to its 'out of the box' condition.

Thanks in anticipation

Hi there!

I helped my neighbour to find a new laptop, and the whole setup and startup.

We ordered a C670-11Q and it works really well, theres just one annoyance.
The disc makes some loud clicking noises, not like a dying or working disc. It's the same sound as when you turn of a disc, just much louder. I guess it's the "disc reading arm" that goes into it's safe position.

I don't know if this laptop has a shock sensor to do this? The laptop was sitting flat on the table, and there where NO vibrations while it's doing it. There are no clicks while under load, but they occur randomly while idling or normal surfing/writing.

I also checked power saving options and disabled them to turn of the disc, no help.
This also seemed weird, because the clicks often occur several times in a row. But it definitely does it more when running on battery.

I'm running the newest BIOS and drivers from the support area (as of yesterday).
The disc is set to performance mode, i didn't test battery saving - should i?

And no, the disc hasen't taken any beating. I was the first person to turn it on.

The drive is from Hitachi, i ran their analysis - no errors.

Any help is greatly appreciated :o)

One of my notebook?s HDD makes such noise too.

I?m not exactly sure why but I think also that this is the disks head which moves into save position.

However, I think that this is not really a malfunction since the notebook runs pretty well and I didn?t notice any problems with the HDD or the files? but I created a backup of my files? just to be safe ? you know?
I think you should backup the date just to be safe?

Answer:Re: Satellite C670 upgraded to I7-2720qm, BIOS update?


As far as I know Toshiba doesn?t support BIOS update and BIOS update has nothing to do with your update. BIOS update is designed to fix some issues or offer some additional options but it has nothing to do with CPU upgrade.

I hope everything will be OK with your notebook in the future. Be careful how do you use it. I presume that you know that after CPU upgrade every hardware failure and repair you must pay on your own.

I got the same problem over the previous months when I play Football Manager 2011 on my Toshiba laptop.

The game needs a lot of CPU usage at some time (when I move step ahead, CPU and game create other teams results and create next news and so on) and it breaks after 1-2 hours of playing.

It gets louder and louder and thats all!
PC restarts automathically and I lost my time useless!

It might be overheating processor but I get this problems only while playing this game.
I can forget to play while listening to some music from Youtube or other source or having Skype chat in the background, then it remains only for couple of minutes and it restarts PC again and again.

Whats wrong ? Overheat or anything else ?
Maybe I just need to reinstall whole Windows or game (FM 2011) ?

I use: Toshiba C670-105 / Intel Cor i3 2,53 GHz, 4 GB RAM, Win 7 Home Premium, 64-bit SP1, 300 GB HDD, DirectX10, NVIDIA GeForce 315M

My savegame is currently about 180 MB. And of course my laptop is above of minimal requirements to play this game.

Any hints ?

Answer:Satellite C670-105 unwanted restart while playing some game

> Whats wrong ? Overheat or anything else?
Well, I think nobody would be able to say exactly why the unit shuts off without any further investigation.
Generally the notebook could power OFF due to high temperature and high temperature is mostly the reason for unwanted automatic shuts downs.

Did you ever clean the notebook?s cooling fans in the past?
No?! Probably the dust and debris inside the cooling modules prevent the fans from running with best performance and cause high temperature which leads to the shut down.

I would recommend you to use an compressed air spray in order to get rid of dust. But sometimes such cooling modules need to be cleaned professionally.
But try the compressed air spray firstly.

I have a Toshiba Satellite C670, win7 64bit. I've had it for about a month. Monitor drivers are at the most recent available version.

I've recently noticed a problem with the monitor's gamma settings. On startup, the screen is brighter than it should be. When I go to monitor settings / colour improvements and I change gamma from its default 1.0 to, for instance, 0.9, I see the screen darken (considerably) in 2 distinct but fast steps. Changing the gamma back to 1.0 makes the screen go brighter in one (small) step, and the end result is darker than before I changed anything.

Increasing gamma to 1.1 or 1.2 also gives me a darker result than the "reported" gamma of 1.0 at startup; from my estimation, the gamma at startup is about the same as when I manually set it to 1.3.

However, when I set gamma to, for instance, 0.9, at startup the screen will be back at about 1.3 " real gamma" again. Ofcourse I could shuffle the gamma control back and forth every time I start up my laptop, so that gamma 1.0 is indeed as dark as it should be, but surely I shouldn't have to do this? I use the laptop mainly for photo editing so it's pretty important to my use of the laptop to have correct gamma.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Kind regards,

Answer:Satellite C670 - monitor: gamma setting too high on startup


From my own experience every display supports different properties.
As far as I know monitor manufacturers store gamma, color information inside the monitors which is being used by the graphics card drivers.

For common usage its ok but for people who do imaging there are different tools which helps you to manage such settings.

I recommend you testing an tool called ?QuickMonitorProfile?
Its free and allows you to create the most commonly used working space profiles. It is also possible to create a monitor profile.

To start, my computer is getting a bit long in the tooth at nearly three years old. I have a TSSTcorp CDDVDW SH-S223B ATA drive, and I was doing some physical archiving of my hard drive when I started to encounter problems with burning a disc.

The drive won't acknowledge any disc. I've tried a few data discs that I know are fine, but when asked to show me the contents of D: the tray ejects and shows a message "please insert a disc into drive d:."

Testing with a media disc: a DVD of Firefly. a little beep emerges from my computer, and another little beep, but no popup asking me what I want to do with the disc. I have AutoPlay set to start Windows media Player when I insert a DVD video disc. when I ask Windows Explorer to show me the contents of D: the tray ejects and shows a message "please insert a disc into drive d:."

I have vista home on this machine. My next step was to attempt to boot from CD. That worked, it booted up and wanted to install Vista, so i restarted and tried a media disc again. Another short, faint beep and another, about 15 second apart, maybe? And still not reading the media disc. I know that computers emit beeps in a pattern to indicate hardware trouble and if you know the code you can diagnose the problem, which is why I mentioned it.

Answer:trouble with a recalcitrant CDDVDW drive


I, personally, don't have a lot of patience with DVDROMs. I find that new ones will read any disc for a couple of years. Worth replacing for about $25.00 online to end the frustration of a picky drive. Online is definitely the way to go as retail stores usually only have one model and charge about twice as much. (If your local computer shop has reasonably priced replacements that is fine too. I only have big box stores and Radio Shack that don't stock that type of item.)

Looking at that model number, I come up with it being a SATA drive. You could take a quick peek at the cables connected to it to verify it is SATA (IDE is on top and SATA on bottom of picture). If it is SATA then any non-slimline (slimline models are desinged for laptops) SATA DVD burner would be your best choice for a replacement drive. I buy LiteOn out of habit but others have brands they prefer. (IDE drives are still readily available, if it is IDE, although less selection but about same price).

That said, I don't think it is a driver problem since it reads CDs, so Windows sees the drive and can use it when the drive itself can read the disc. DVD drives have two lasers, one for CD and one for DVD--it is possible your DVD laser is going bad or misaligned.

Are you using a different brand of blank media? Sometimes certain burners won't like particular media. Have you been burning discs for a while now-will it read a DVD that you burned several months ago? If it doesn&... Read more

The driver for all makes and models of optical drives is built in to all versions Windows from XP right up to Windows 8. It's a generic or universal Microsoft driver.That's why you can't find one on the web - it's not required. Just like you don't need to install a mouse driver, it too is built-in.Your problem is usually caused by filter entries in the registry which need deleting. Those entries are put there by cd burning or video software which you've installed recently:

I tried reatrting my system after 4-5 hrs and I was able to login but only for 20 mins. Again same thing . I observed a click click sound from the hard drive and also it is heating a lot. Does it mean the whole hard drive is not working and should be replaced. Or is it because of the heating issues. Pease help.

I clean installed windows 10 64 bit on my G60 458 DX which had originally windows vista after checking compatibility of windows 10 for my machine. Now after this installation, see that the DVD rom is though reading a few CDs but is neither reading any DVD nor burning any data CD including the ISO file win 10 DVD i tried to burn. checked on HP forum and tried all the remedies but all failed. In the end tried samsung driver remedy but am now stuck at the last step i.e. the samsung flasher keeps saying that firmware is not compatible with the selected drive for the patched bin file.

Answer:driver error for TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-L633A ATA Device


Try these suggestions: -

Try this - Control Panel - Device Manager - CD/DVD - double click the device - Driver's Tab -
click Update Drivers (this will likely do nothing) - then RIGHT CLICK the drive - UNINSTALL -
REBOOT this will refresh the default driver stack. Even if drive is not shown continue

Then work your way through these - remember the drive could be bad, could have a loose
cable or slight corrosion on the contacts (usually for a laptop) and other issues.

Answer:download driver tsst corp cddvdw ts-l632h ata

"Acer e-Management" will be on the factory recovery partition or on the recovery discs you should have made from the recovery partition when you first got the laptop.The other thing is probably the DVD-drive.You should do a full factory recovery which should put them right.

As i already stated, my drive doesn't read any dvd's anymore.
I've already tried to:
-Remove Upper/lower filters (Lower filters were missing, could this be the problem?)
-Switching the sata ports from were the device was connected.
-Upgrading the firmware of the dvd player
-Upgrading the Bios
-Asked here
-Some stupid things.

Windows and the bios do see this drive and give it the correct name.
I've already tried this with an other drive and she had this problem to.

So please help!!

I am wondering if anyone can help me, I have this error on my cd/dvd driver & I am not sure how to sort it: Windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged. (Code 19)

I am quite new to this, I have uninstalled the driver & searched for new drivers but it just tells me that it hasn't installed it properly.

If I put a CD in it starts to read it then stops & nothing happens. I have searched the net & tried to find a solution myself but nothing as yet.

I'd appreciate it if anyone could help me, but the simpler the better please.

Thanks a lot

HELP! My system doesn't see my optical drive from the desktop "Computer" icon. Device manager sees the drive. The drive spins up at boot time. When I insert a CD/DVD the drive spins up for a few seconds, the green LED flashes.  Nothing else happens after that. Trouble Shooting: 1. Attempted HHO1 firmware update. "This version not supported." Failed. 2. Uninstalled, reinstalled optical drive driver. Failed 3. Disabled/enabled the optical drive inDevice Manager. Failed 4. Unable to locate the correct driver on the net. Toshiba/Samsung site doesn't have the correct driver available. Failed. 5. I have BIOS F.66. Flashed the BIOS. Failed. The last time this happened, I did a fresh factory install and that worked. This time it didn't help. Any assistance to resolve this problem would be would be greatly appreciated.  Thank you,  Bruce

Answer:Drive is not capable of burning (TSSTcorp CDDVDW TS-L633A ATA Device)

It might be that the drive has had it and wont burn anymore and more than likely will need drives i believe have 2 lasers in them one to read and one to burn. when they go they cant be repaired just replaced.

I am looking for an acer cb 11 what are difrent about these 2 they seem like the same

Answer:CB3-111-C8UB vs CB3-111-C670

They fairly often have small differences in the components without functional differences. I don't know for sure with those SKUs but it could be that or a different software package.

Online stores carry Acer CB3-111-C670 and Acer CB3-111-C8UB, each for $199. Both are listed on the Acer site, but I can't see any difference in the specs. What is the difference?

You are correct there are no differences that I can see. The sku numbers may be different because of the vendor that is selling it or it could be when it was manufactured.
