To remove the drive you will need to remove the small screw on the bottom of the laptop that holds the drive in place. Look for a CD symbol near a screw aproximatly 6 inches in from the DVD drive center. Remove that screw and the DVD should slide out. The best place to get a replacement drive is Ebay Do a search for the model and DVD and you should see many for sale

Toshiba satellite l655d-s5093 d: drive issue


Buy a drive cleaning CD/DVD, those from dollar store may also work, clean the drive a few times and it should read CD/DVD.
Alternatively look at the Toshiba support drivers fro firmware update to your specific drive. Make sure you get all the recommended and critical Toshiba updates.

Go to this site, select Laptops, Satellite (family), and your model number. Note that you wrote S801 in the title and S805 in the body of your message so be sure you select the right model.

I need a replacement optical drive for the Toshiba A45-s151. I've googled for an hour and can't find a simple list of possible replacements. Any ideas where to look? Thanks in advance.


The "good" news is that laptop CD/DVD devices are "generic", i.e., just buy a new one, and it will fit, once you remove the face-plate from the old drive-tray, and connect it to the new drive-tray.

However, replacing a CD/DVD device in a laptop is not a "beginner-level" do-it-yourself project.
Take the computer to a computer-store, and pay them to disassemble your laptop,
remove the old drive, connect the replacement drive, reassemble your laptop, and test it.

Hey there , i have a 2 yr old toshiba a200 laptop and my dvd drive has stopped working . It just keeps spinning the disc around , is there a solution online to this or do i need to bring my machine to...


If you are unable to play any DVDs in that drive, then you will need to have the drive replaced. First make sure to try different DVDs in the drive to ensure that it is not a faulty DVD. If the drive is the issue, then you will need to purchase the part. The part is easily replacable.

First go to a computer parts website such as Best Buy or purchase on Ebay.

Below is one location to purchase the drive:
http://www.priorityelectronics.com/laptop-cdrw/toshiba-satellite.htm

Once you purchase the drive, the instructions on how to remove and replace the drive are below:

Look to the bottom of the laptop and you will see a screw where the DVD drive is located. towards the middle at the bottom of the laptop.

Remove one screw securing the DVD drive and push it from the laptop with a screwdriver.
Remove the DVD drive.

Once that drive is out, just push in the new drive, replace the screw, and you will be good.

I hope this was helpful. If you are uncomfortable performing the steps listed above, please consult a local computer repair shop and make sure that the tech servicing your computer is certified technician.
