CD Drive Not Opening

I purchased a Satellite L300-13R last month. The machine is for my daught who has now taken it to university 300 miles away.

She set up a printer for it last week and thinks she may have left the driver CD in the drive - the CD drive has now stopped working. The orange light comes on - but the tray does not open.

What do you advise - is there a call centre she can contact - the machine has not not yet been registered with Toshiba as it has not yet been connected to the internet.

Many thanks.

First, if you're wanting the CD back, there should be a VERY small hold beside the eject button. Stick a paper clip in this hole to manually eject the CD tray. If you're wanting to replace the drive, I'd definitely get ahold of toshiba, as they have a pretty good warranty policy, and will probably replace the drive for free.

However, it sounds to me like the drive is just jammed. Maybe the CD wasn't placed in the tray correctly. I'd manually eject the CD if possible. Some (and this is a limited number) CD-Drives do not have manual eject ability. In this case, you'd have to either force the drive open and risk breaking it and the warranty, or just send it in for warranty repair.

Why am I experiencing intermittent vibration when I drive my new car.


A/C compressor kicks on and off, Engine cooling fans do to. This could be the vibration you feel. This is normal.

I love walking and last year bought some great walking shoes. They still seem in a good condition. When do I need to replace them?


Ideally, walking shoes should be replaced every 300 to 500 miles which for an average committed walker would be between 3 and 6 months. Don't judge it by how the shoe looks as the inner support could be worn away but the shoe still look great. You will feel the difference between an old and a new shoe.

I have a 2GB camra card in my camra and today I went to download pictures off it and all the pics I have taken the last 5 months are gone! What happen?


First off don't format that card or take anymore pictures on top of what you have. If you were attempting to download from the camera to the PC/Mac the computer may not have recognized the camera. Can you still see the pictures on the camera in playback or preview mode? If so then the pictures are there. You should purchase a Memory card reader, remove the memory card from the camera plug the reader into a USB port and then put the memory card into the reader. Your computer will see this as an external mass storage device and possibly (depending on your operating software) put a Hard Drive icon on your desk top. Opening this hard drive will reveal your pictures. Going back to the camera and playback or view image mode if you don't see the pictures I'd suggest (not knowing where you are) you could go into a place that does digital printing and ask them to insert your card in a machine and it will open the files for you these then can be burned to a CD and then put in your computer to view.

Definitely do the timing belt & plugs if not done already! Depending on how the job goes $300-$500. Rear drum brakes on these cars have a tendency to last a VERY long time(I've seen 150,000 miles) because the majority of the braking gets done in the front.
