Question about Toshiba Satellite A1O A15 A20 A25 A30 A35 A40 A45 Series 15 inch LCD Display- N150X2-L01 (N150X2L01) CD-ROM Drive
I have a CD-r/DVD and whenever I put a CD in, it makes a loud, almost grinding noise, continues to spin and then doesn't read anything. The D:\ in explorer looks blank. Problem started recently. The last CD read was an old version of the Sims which my computer said it could not install a 16 bit program on XP. What's wrong with my CD-R? Can I just get a replacement bay?
This problem seems to be with the alignment of lens, which can be done by opening the cd rom drive and change the alignment, but if its under warranty replace the drive bay

Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
hope this helps
