You can type in in the address bar tinyurl.com/toshiba.com, press enter, run the file, click on yes or ok until it was added to the registry then restart your computer. Try to play a disk afterwards. Hope it works.

MY , CD/DVD LAPTOP DRIVER DOESN'T WORK. IT CAN


goto run and type "compmgmt.msc"(without quotes) and select disc management if the dvd drive is showing below the hard disks means your dvd drive is working fine only thing you have to do is to right click on the CD-Rom 0 and change drive letter and paths to it
.if the CD ROM option is not seen in disk management then you have to go to the device manager option under computer management and expand cd/dvd -rom drives and you will find your dvd drive model if not that means that your dvd drive has got hardware problem

CD player will not work


Try a different CD. iIf the computer doesn't recognize it at all, listen for the drive to spin and look for a blinking light on the CD tray. These signs do not necessarily mean the CD drive isn't broken. I would find the model number of your laptop and do a search on eBay for a replacement CD drive. These are very easy to switch out. If the new one works, then you're set. If it doesn't work, there may be an issue with your motherboard.

Hi:
Try going to Hp's website and downloading any updated drivers for the DVD drve. If after doing this contact Hp because the drive is not defective.

Select CONTROL PANEL
Select SYSTEM
Select DEVICE MANAGER
(This will show you all your computer's hardware and peripherals)
Locate your CD/DVD "DVD/CD-ROM DRIVES"
Not listed?-Defective or no power. (If you can get drawer to open and close by pressing button, you know it has power.)
Listed? right click it, select PROPERTIES
(Yellow triangle indicates error)
First tab GENERAL shows if it is working properly.
Then click on DRIVER tab to see if you just need to update the driver, or roll back to a previous driver.

Hope this helps.

My computer cannot detect cd/dvd inserted


Right-click on my computer, go to 'Manage'. It opens a window, click on 'Device Manager' on the left. On the right, click on 'DVD/CD-ROM Drives'. If it shows your DVD drive, then right-click on it and select 'Uninstall'. Once it has uninstalled, Right-click on your computer name(near the top on the right, above the word 'Computer') and select "Scan for hardware changes". It will re-detect your CD/DVD drive and re-install it. If it cannot find your DVD drive, then you will need to purchase a new one. If it still does not read CD's then try updating the firmware.

Also try physically re-seating the drive by taking it out and putting it back in the PC.
