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

I would like to find out what DVD/RW-CD combo drives would be compatible to install in a Toshiba Satellite L25-S119.

It only comes with a CD-RW/DVD ROM and the user would like to be able to burn DVDs for converting VHS tapes hopefully without using an external writer.

Thanks in Advance.

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:

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.

If you are asking for the information regarding the ODD here it is: DVD SuperMulti (+/-R double layer) with Labelflash? drive supporting 11 formats * Maximum speed and compatibility: CD-ROM (24x), CD-R (24x), CD-RW (4x), DVD-ROM (8x), DVD-R (Single Layer, (8x)), DVDR (Double Layer, (4x)), DVD-RW (4x), DVD+R (Single Layer, (8x)), DVD+R (Double Layer, (4x)), DVD+RW (4x), DVD-RAM (5x) * Supports Labelflash? media to burn high quality labels directly on the disk. If not ( Cant read CD or DVD ) then most likely the lens on the ODD is already busted. or ODD cant be detected then just go to the Website support.toshiba.com and download the latest update for the ODD. And install the driver on your NB and restart the NB. If still the same then the ODD you have is already busted what you need to do is to buy a new ODD.

Replace cd rom with a dvd+rw cd rom in a toshiba satellite


You should be able to, there is usually only one screw holding the drive in, if you hold the replacement up to where the instlled one is, you should see the approximate location of the screw ( may be under another panel, Memory,hard drive etc.., the drive will just slide out, then make sure the connectors are the same, and swap or place the mounting bracket on the new one, and slide it back in place, replacing any screws removed

You can use almost any laptop cd rom, cd/rw, cd/rw-dvd rom, dvd rom, or dvd/rw that you can find. You might have to transfer the mounting pieces from the old to the new, but that is no big deal.

Dics Drive Upgrade for Toshiba Satillate.


As far as i know thats impossible. Your optical diskdrive is made just for those speeds that you have on it. You cant change the manufacture settings and speed it upp, or make it to an dual layer disk.
Buy a new one whit the needs that u want and replace the old one. Its easy done and its not that expensive.

Good luck to you

The DVD player could be defective. If it is not seen in the device manager within Windows, then it is not being seen at all by the Operating System.

Check your connections to the DVD drive. On many laptops, the DVD can easily be removed and reinserted.
