My TSSTcorp DVDWBD T3-LB23A optical drive is no longer reading any discs, though it spins and tries when I put a factory movie DVD in it. Same with CDs. The system does boot up the same movie on an


when a drive stops reading ANY disk it's most likely a bad drive.
if the computer see the drive and ask for a disk, the software and disk driver is operating correctly. laptops generates a lot of heat,and more so when pluged in and charging. CDs,DVDs, and disk drives also generates heat. proper ventalation and a cooling pad will help extend the life of a laptop. if you have acess to a spare laptop drive, you can swap them. windows-7 will see the new drive and should install driver.

All of a sudden my disk and dvd movies will no longer pop up when i put then in the disk holder and push them in nothing happens i can hear the disk spinning for a few seconds and then it stops but nothing...


Insert a disk. Wait for the disk-spinning to stop.
Open "My Computer".
Double-click the icon for the CD/DVD drive, to see if Windows can read anything from the disk.

Cd rom is not read any cd


bad optical disk drive or bad connection restart your computer open bios and see if its showing your disk drive there... if not then you could turn it off remove the drive turn on the machine let it boot then shut it down and restart it if it still doesnt show up you need a new drive... if it does show up and still not reading cd's or if it was there all along you could have a bad odd lens which i would say just replace your cdrom drive

Put DVD in disk drive but laptop doesnt read it


This simply indicates that your DVD drive lense is faulty/dirty, try using a cleaner to clean the lense, if it doesnt solve the problem, then i think you need to look for a change for it.

R500 laptop doesn't show/recognise CD/DVD drive


you most certainly must change your drive because its defective...
the good thing is that you do not have to open the laptop apart to do it but unscrew just one... screw (!) and pull it out.
all the pc-shops that sell drives for laptops would change it for you at once... just take the laptop with you.
as for the cost, here in greece a dvd-recorder for laptops is about 30 - 40 euro for a SATA type and about 50 for IDE type. In the shop they will see if you need a SATA or an IDE drive when they will take out the old one.

Toshiba Satellite A75-S206 DVD\CD-RW drive problem


Hello GeneMat,

I am Romeet,i will try and help you with this problem.Seems it could be an issue with the Combo DVD Drive's Driver Software or Firmware.

Try This:

From your Desktop:

Right Click " My Computer" Icon and select "Properties"

Go to "Hardware" Tab and select "Device Manager"

Under Device Manager, scroll down to the "DVD/CDROM Drives" menu and click on the plus ( + ) Sign next to it

Right Click the Drive name eg " Toshiba DVD-R TSST 2313" and select " Uninstall" Click yes to any prompts and restart your Laptop.

After rebooting, Windows XP should pick up the drivers again, so wait a while for it to complete and until it notifies you that " Windows successfully completed installing your new hardware" or something to that effect and then try using the software cds again

Best of luck!
