Toshiba SD-M1202 Schematic

Hello, I'm trying to make something out of an old DVD-ROM drive, a Toshiba SD-M1202, and I need the electrical schematics. I have tried most of the usual web sites to no avail. This is just a hobby project. If you can point me in the right direction or provide me with the schematics it would be greatly appreciated. Best Regards, Paul Hoffman

Re: Toshiba SD-M1202 Schematic

You may be out of luck As most toshiba drives are made by a differant division of toshiba then what the computers are and most of these drives come as a whole part and the computer divsion at Tosiba dosent even have the schematics for them as like I say they dont fix them they simply replace them as a part in whole. All differant drives will have the same pinout as the drives are interchangable. But before I spent alot of time experimenting I would make sure the drive works in a puter. Good Luck

Try the DVD disk in some other computer, to ensure that the disk itself is OK.
Try some other "known-good" DVD-disk in your Toshiba SD M1502 drive.

Cannot read

I think your drive is old and full of dust inside or it may be nearing its end. Get some servicing.
