Toshiba 1625CDT CD-ROM

My Toshiba 1625CDT CD-ROM does not work. It is shown in My Computer as D:, but when I place a a CD in the drive, and click D:, it reports not accessible.
There are no errors shown in the Settings, System, Device Drivers.
I have Win98 on the system. The drive cables are fully seated. I'm not sure if the drive spins up.

How can I check what is wrong? What is the fix?

Thanks,

How old is the cd-rom? Dust, and years of use can cause the laser to wear out or misalign.Try blowing hard inside with the drawer open (silly, isn't it? but I am not joking. my place is dust prone and I have to do that all the time). But if it is as old as the operating system, maybe it is time to get a new drive.

WHAT KIND OF FLASH DRIVE CAN I SE WITH TOSHIBA


This is an older model which according to the manual shipped with windows 98. The USB is 1.1 and you will have to find an older flash drive and driver software to have a chance. I don’t think it is worth the trouble. Sorry

Boot up problem


NOTE: Ususally when computers DO NOT find any startup information on the SELECTED DRIVE (like when you click a key) it goes to the default drive.
WHICH IS YOUR HARD DRIVE.
Meaning it is probably your Harddrive is broken, or your connection from hard drive to motherboard is broken

Burn a Live CD bootdisk of some linux distribution
liek Slax, google it.
Burn it to a bootable CD and put it into your drive, then select to boot from it.
If it boots only using your CD ROM drive, if that works then its probably not your BIOS/rest of computer, which is good.

And while in the live cd, you can see your harddrive and see files, that means its not broken its just your connection to it....either way im guessing youll have to send it in.

Hi

You can obtain the Recovery disk from Toshiba. Toshiba hotline number 1-800-457-7777 (US) 0844 800 6020 (UK). You need to provide your computer's part number correct to get the matching recovery disk. Usually they charges $39.95 including shipping to your address in US. Alternately you can go to http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/cgi-bin/ToshibaCSG/generic_content.jsp?service=UK&ID=Support_Homepage_uk

Good Luck

We have a toshiba Sattelite A45-140. Hard drive problem


It is not that hard to remove the drive, though, if you are prone to have leftover screws when you take devices apart, you should get help. And before you part with your cash, make sure that the hard disks available are compatble with your laptop, since I have difficulties finding non SATA (IDE) disks for my old 5005.
