DVD RW not working on Toshiba Laptop

I inherited a Toshiba Satellite laptop recently with a DVD RW drive that worked fine for a while. Now it does not even recognize that there is a drive for my discs to play. I'm computer clueless so please help! I don't know if it matters but it has Windows XP and I think is less than 3-4 years old.
Thank you!!

Replacing dvd/rw in a toshiba


Post the model number of the Toshiba Satellite Notebook PC

This can be found on the Bottom of the laptop.

Optical drives for laptops usually just slide out to remove, or silde in. There is an Interface 'block' on the motherboard they plug into.
Usually just one Philips head screw, on the bottom of the laptop; is what holds them in.

Awaiting model number, to give more specific info

While waiting, one example,

Replacing a DVD ROM with a DVD RW in a toshiba satellite L25-S119


Because it is a toshiba laptop, you will need to buy a model-specific dvd drive for your laptop direct from toshiba, or at least from an authorized toshiba reseller. This is not something you would get from your local best buy.

You want something like this:
http://www.toshiba.ca/web/product.grp?lg=en&section=1&group=2&product=3330

Order online, or select "Locate Dealer" and find one in your area.

My suggestion is to call up a dealer and verify that this model is compatible with your laptop, because yours is on the older side the slim select bays may be a little too small.

Toshiba dvd burner problem


Try unistalling the dvd drive in device manager. Go to my computer click on view system information. Then click on hardware, then click on device manager find your dvd drive then right click and unistall a warning window will popup click ok. Once you unistall it restart the system and windows will find new device and reinstall the device driver. Then check if this fixes the problem. if this dosnt fix the problem try removing the dvd drive from the laptop and reinsert it. Sometimes the connection losses contact with the terminals.
