Question about Computers & Internet

My DVD on my laptop no longer works. Its not a software problem, I believe its the drive. I wanted to order one from but not to sure that it would be the right one. do the drives fit most laptops? I have a model # on the drive, but theres no inquiry to my model number, so Im wondering if they are pretty much the same.

Installed new hard drive p105 s6064 now cd drive wont work dont have recovery discs

Dell recovery will not work in a Toshiba Laptop. Just make sure the boot order is set to CD/DVD driver first that will automatically start the CD/DVD driver when disc is loaded.

I want to connect my acer aspire one to my pc in order to create recovery disks and load software from the pc's dvd rw to the note book. Please can you advise.

Don't. Thats the long way. Just get an external USB CD/DVD drive and use that or take out the CD/DVD drive from your PC and buy a SATA to USB cable and use that as an external.
Using crossover cables, KVM, network, virtual CDs etc take a lot longer

No longer plays dvd

It's probably either that you somehow no longer have the DVD player driver, or you no longer have software that can play DVDs. There is also the possibility that your DVD player is broken, in which case I would search on amazon for a new one. If it's the driver your missing, I believe you can download it here (scroll down to 'DVD player' and click the 'Download' link). Lastly, if you're missing software to play DVDs, you can probably just Google 'DVD Player Software". Hope this helps!

Our dvd drive does not even recognize there is a dvd in drive I believe we purchased our computer in 2002 ...

Check the DVD and make sure it is not scratched. Try another DVD just to make sure it is not reading all DVDs and not just that one.

Did this happen just recently? If so, roll back the computer using the restore option. Set it back to a date when it worked (this will fix any driver, software issues).

If none of the above work, you will need topurchases a new DVD player for laptop. Check eBay for reasonable prices.

Replacing a cd drive

The 4600 has PowerDVD to play DVDs (You should have the software CD to install it on the 3000) DVD burning software would be Roxio/Sonic, and you should have that CD too.
If you don't have the CDs, then try to download Free player software and Burning software
