A virus can cause that problem but it could be as simple as the drive going bad. I would formatt & do a clean OS install. That would rule out a virus problem.

SOURCE: Restore Original Configuration

If you have not yet found time to call Toshiba and get the recovery CD you may try the following:
1. Reboot you system
2. Press F1 (immediately you get options to press F2 and F12)
3. Press F8 (this will give you more options including system recovery)


Please ignore if you already have the CD. Having the CD is the best as previously said.

The step above have helped me many times to avoid doing factory system restore. I hope it helps you or someone else.

Toshiba satellite CD door will not open


http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/laptop-disassembly-1.htm

1) ALL power removed. Remove the AC adapter (Charger), and Battery.

2) Turn the laptop over bottom side up, Battery Compartment facing AWAY from you, down on a table.
You may wish to lay a soft Static free cloth on the table, to prevent scratching the table, or laptop.

3) Take this cover off,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/big/toshiba-satellite-a200-a205-02.jpg

Remove the Ram Memory module/s. ('Stick')
Lay them/it carefully aside. Handle by the BODY. The Body is everywhere on the Ram Memory module, EXCEPT the gold plated contact pins at the bottom.

The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

4) Remove this Philips head screw, and push the optical drive out,

http://www.irisvista.com/tech/laptops/toshiba-satellite-a205/big/toshiba-satellite-a200-a205-03.jpg

The top of the optical drive will have small Philips head screws, or Torx screws. They sell Torx screwdrivers real cheap,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Torx

Remove the screws, remove the cover, remove the disk.

Regards,
joecoolvette

[Sounds like you may need a replacement optical drive ]

Toshiba satellite A205 - cd/dvd drive doesn't work


Hi there.

The CD/DVD drive uses Class Filter Drivers. These have probably been currupted or are missing. All you should need to do, is re-install the Chipset Drivers (Intel).

Here's the link:

Let me know if that works.

On my Toshiba Satellite a205-s4707 dvd player not working


Allright this one can be tricky so we need to isolate the problem between software and hardware.

First, get into the bios and see it's being detected.

If not then turn off the computer and unscrew the drive from the laptop, MAJORITY of laptops only need to have one screw unscrewed to release the drive. If yours doesn't then you'll have to do a little more work, let's just assume you have the majority for now.

Next, pull the drive out, feel free to give the back connector a quick puff of air, now carefully place the drive back into the laptop so that it's nice and tight.

Check to see if that solves your problem.

If not we'll try something else.
