Question about Toshiba SD M1612 Internal DVD Drive

Open Question

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.

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.

DVD stuck


Replace the drivebay of the Bose AV3-2-1 If the drive sticks, or does not open, or If you receive an error of NO DISK, or any indicator that the disk is not properly recognized clean the lens and if still doesn?t work then the DVD drive is bad. You can actually use one for a desktop PC with a few part swappings. Check that the drive is a Toshiba SD-M1612 it is printed at the bottom of the drive bay. To use this SD-M1612 as a replacement you will simply have to swap three external parts. Remove the 3 parts from the bad Bose drive bay: Remove the 4 bottom bolts, lift cover, if the DVD bay door is locked then insert a paperclip into small hole in the front. Slide DVD tray out and remove the PC style DVD ROM tray facing. 2 clips hold it on pry them out and slide the facing up and off. Now remove the face of the drive bay. It has several clips. Save these three components (top cover, face, and tray facing) to add to the new Toshiba SD-M1612 DVD bay. Remove the old and installation is the reversed procedure above. also remove the small clear LED bezel from the new drive before adding the face. It works fantastic.
