Assuming no dirt on the laser lens which you can clean with a laser lens cleaner http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=9302097&st=cd+cleaner&type=product&id=1218081366389 .Recommend saving up for a replacement CD Drive. My Toshiba Satellite did that for about a year before the drive gave out completely. Found a replacement on ebay for around $25 dollars.

Won't play music CDs


This may be a hardware problem - my drive was not recognizing any CDs, but read and played DVDs fine. There are separate CD and DVD detectors, and over time, one or the other may drift out of spec. I found a solution posted elsewhere on this site: If you remove the drive from the machine and open the drive tray, you'll see a metal plate held in place by three black screws. With a small (2mm) Phillips screwdriver, remove the plate. Gently lift the flat ribbon to the side and you'll see two very small potentiometers that can be adjusted with the same screwdriver. For a CD problem turn the one closer to the front of the drive about 1/8 turn clockwise, close everything up and try the drive again. You may have to repeat the procedure a couple of times before it reaches the right setting (mine took two tries). (The other pot controls the DVD reader.)

Does the toshiba sd 2502 , can it burn cds


It is a DVD ROM drive which stands for DVD Read Only Memory. In other words, this drive is meant to only PLAY DVDs and CDs but NOT save data to them.

To burn CDs you need a CD burner. Burners are of 3 types:

CD writer only burns and reads CDs.

Combo drive reads CDs and DVDs but only burns CDs.

Super drive burns and reads from CDs and DVDs.

As you go higher in functionality, the price also increases. Check your needs before you plan to buy one. Also compare prices of all the drives. Note: burn-able media costs are separate.

My Toshiba SD-C2612 8X Slim DVD will not read cds. I just updated the firmware in my laptop for this drive and it still wont read cd's. get can not read d: error. I reinstalled it and everything.


Try a lens cleaner, probably wont solve the problem, the drive's optics for the cd side are failing dvd's still work, if you must read cd's replace the drive or use a external cd drive.

Dvd runs cd doesnt


in your case ,this may be due to two reasons...
1)your reading lens may be having some defects like only responding to dvd`s and not cd`s
2)the cd`s that u used may have been written using digital burning security.......
