What software did you just install? Does the laptop power up at all, does the "TOSHIBA" splash screen appear?

My laptop cant find my new dvd rom

It might be an operating system problem, something in the registry.
If you use windows, update to the last service pack to fix the registry, and install the DVD driver before mounting it
if you use vista try to download the driver before installing the DVD. Still many devices does not work with vista.
Thanks for using fixya…good luck and don’t forget to rate this…

After installing vista service pack 1 my dvd rom is gone.

I would try stopping the device and restarting it first.

If that doesn't work, find the latest drivers for it, and have them in a folder you can find easily. In device manager, you can right click, go into properties for the DVD-ROM. Click the update drivers button, and point it to that directory.

If neither of those work ,try completely uninstalling it from device manager, then going through the add new hardware option in control panel.

DVD R/W is not getting detected on my laptop

try to run a repair on your OS. What happened there was that your virtual cd software replaced some default drivers from the OS.

Hope this helps.

DVD rom drive

It sounds like the drive itself is faulty. Since you've reformatted, it obviously isn't a software problem. CDs and DVDs are read by two different lasers so its not uncommon for one disc not to be read yet the other is just fine which seems to be the case. A new one can be purchased for under $40.
