My few months old Toshiba Satellite (CV50-A-1DV) won't boot from a cd/dvd, so I can't boot from a live cd. I have looked through the pdf user manual - no luck and on the Toshiba support site where someone is talking about updating the bios. Can any one help me with this problem? seems bad that i have to update the bios just to boot from a cd.

Is this a known good bootable disk?
How did you create the disk? What operating system, what application did you use, if any?

Not knowing your knowledge level I will start from scratch.
Look at the contents of the disk. If all you see is a single file then the disk was not burned correctly.
If you extracted the files before burning it was not created correctly.

It must be burned as an image.

please look at the cd/dvd you are using for the bootup process.
There might be some problem in the cd/dvd due to this the your device is not starting or loading the bootup files.

Hi indy, I'm glad I found your post because I'm having the same issue with booting my Toshiba and nobody has been able to help me so far. Did you figure out what to do to solve this?
