My toshiba sd m1612 doesn't play about hapf my DVD's

My toshiba sd m1612 started a few weeks ago not to play about half of my dvd's. All my dvd's are originals, bought in good stores.

When I insert any of these DVD 's the light on the front of the DVD blinks about ten times and then stops blinking and remains ON, indicating the DVD can't be read. Windows says that the DVD is either corupt or has a format not recognized by Windows.

I moved the player to another computer, went through installation, no change.

It's like the hardware of the player changed.
I tried a lens head cleaner -no change.

Thanks,
Nitzan

SOURCE: DVD not working

To resolve this problem, remove the affected filter drivers. To do this, follow these steps:
1. Click Start, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.
If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}
Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
3. In the right pane, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
4. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
5. In the right pane, right-click LowerFilters, and then click Delete.
6. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the LowerFilters registry entry.
7. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.

My Toshiba DVD/ROM SD M1502 will play CDs but does not see DVDs. When I click on the drive icon in My Computer it says that its not in a format that it can read. I've tried looking for drivers and have...


Try the DVD disk in some other computer, to ensure that the disk itself is OK.
Try some other "known-good" DVD-disk in your Toshiba SD M1502 drive.

Or, spend $40 and purchase a brand-new, CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the faulty device.

I upgraded to xp and since then my sd c2512 drive will not play dvd's and says there is no dvd software. Also I dont have the original boot disk, do I need to buy dvd software? or is there a download fix...


Did you buy this item as a notebook part, or did you buy another unit such as an external drive and take the drive out of it? If you took the drive out of another item, then you are going to have problems with the on board firmware. Toshiba is a nightmare for doing this.

Also some Toshiba computers do not allow you to upgrade the drive, even with a new Toshiba drive. I learnt this the hard way many years ago. At that time my new Toshiba Notebook would not recognize the New Toshiba DVD Drive, but my decade old Gateway Notebook did. I contacted Toshiba and they said they Firmware lockout new upgrades to encourage people to buy new computers.

My toshiba laptop satellite A215-s7422 doesn"t play anymore


Assuming you have tried various DVD's & CD's sounds like a bad CD/DVD drive. These use a lens mounted on a moveable mount to focus the laser beam and over time the mount gets worn out and the beam can no longer focus so the drive can no longer read the DVD/CD. Should hear the DVD speed up then slow down and maybe a loud vibrating noise (Lens trying to focus). Can try a laser lens cleaner - you can get them at Best Buy, but if that does not work then a new DVD drive is in order. If you can change it yourself then you might find one on ebay used for @$25 otherwise a trip to the computer repair shop.

Problem DVD


A little more information would help. Toshiba models seem to have an issue with playing DVD's but the cause could be one of several things. What software program do you have to play DVD's? Is this a new problem or has it always been this way? Do you have the most recent Windows updates?
