SOURCE: Can't read discs

Is power getting to the drive? Will the tray open and light blink when closing the drive?

If so, it sounds like the lens may be dirty. There are several things you can try: Gently blow into the open drive, use a vacuum, purchase a lens cleaner.

SOURCE: i have a toshiba satellite pro U400 my cd/ dvd tray cannot open ive tryed opening it with the paperclip solution but still it is not opening

this really is a bad situation,pc's in general are very flimsy in this area in construction ,,you can easily break the internal mechanisms of the drive if you force it the only other option would be to dismantle it completly and see where it is stuck,,release it then re-assemble--good luck---Davey

I have satellite C50D-B-10q. How do I open the CD/DVD drive?


Removing discs
To remove the disc, follow the steps as detailed below:
Do not press the eject button while the computer is accessing the optical disc drive. Wait for the optical disc drive indicator to go out before you open the disc tray. Also, if the disc is spinning when you open the disc tray, wait for it to stop before you remove it.
1. To pop the disc tray partially open, press the eject button. Gently pull the disc tray out until it is fully opened. When the disc tray pops open slightly, wait a moment to make sure the disc has stopped spinning before pulling the disc tray fully open.
2. The disc extends slightly over the sides of the disc tray so you can grasp it. Gently lift out the disc.
3. Push the center of the disc tray to close it. Press gently until it locks into place.

How to remove disc when the disc tray will not open:
Pressing the eject button will not open the disc tray when the computer power is off. If the power is off, you can open the disc tray by inserting a slender object (about 20 mm) such as a traightened paper clip into the manual eject hole near the eject button.

Manual eject hole:
Turn off the power before you use the manual eject hole. If the disc is spinning when you open the disc tray, the disc could fly off the spindle and cause injury.

See page 4-8 of the user manual:

My CD is stuck in my Toshiba Satellite A505D laptop slot, with no hole near the Eject button.


Look on the cover on the tray near the eject button. Should be a tiny hole.
Get something like a straightened out paperclip and insert it in to the hole and push firmly but carefuly. It's an emergency eject for a stuck tray.

What makes my DVD ram not to open


The DVD drive may be faulty or it is not makeing proper electrical connection. Try removing the DVD drive and reconnevting it again.
If there is a disc in the drive, use a straighten paper clip and insert it into the tiny hole in the drive tray. Push the paper clip in gently and the tray will unlock and pop out. You can then pull the tray out until you have enought space to remove the disc.

I put a cd inside my toshiba satellite turion 64 but i cant open it to remove the cd.can you hep pleasel


If your laptop has a tray feed cd player and not a slot feed, then look on the tray door, you will see a tiny hold near the eject button. Pish a small paperclip into that hole straight, that is the manual release for the tray and you will get your disc back. The computer does not have to be powered on for this to work. The tray has a mechanical spring that will eject the tray out without any powered required.

I have a toshiba A215-S4757 and it does recognize the cd-rom. It will not even open up to insert a disc when I hit the button. I tried the microsoft patch and it did not work. Any thoughts


It sounds like the CD rom is bad or it may be loose from the connector. There should be a release latch on the bottom of the laptop - try taking it out and putting it back in. Regardless of driver issues the tray should still open.

Online Cloud Backup And Online Backup - Dataalign In vanilla terms, a backup or the process of backing up, refers to the copying and archiving of computer data so it may be used to restore the original after a data loss event. Backups have two distinct purposes. The primary purpose is to recover data after its loss, be it by data deletion or corruption. The simplest definition of a computer backup is an exact copy. In the case of computer files, we are referring to copies of the original files that you have on your laptop, desktop, or external drive. Creating a backup of original content means having that data saved in two places, but it's also important to make sure that those two places aren't on the same type of device. For example, if you have 3 copies of a working document on your computer, if your computer crashes, you will still lose all three. This makes the backup method and medium, an important thing to consider for your backup strategy. With the kind of Online Cloud Backup technology being used these days, it is extremely important to back up your files. Ideally, we store data files, movies, music, photos and our official documents on the computer. With the ever-changing technology, desktops and laptops have reduced in cost, and the quantum of storage inside them has surged considerably over the last few years. Unfortunately, storing all your data in only one place is risky. Accidental deletion, theft, computer loss, natural disaster is just some of the reasons that could cost you heavily as you stand out the chance to lose the data you've spent so long generating and collecting. Having an excellent backup strategy Computer Data Backup is the only way to battle the unexpected loss of data. There is more than one way to back up your computers, and using multiple forms of backup will minimize the risk of losing your valuable files. This is where, the PC Backup solution from DataAlign stands out of the rest and gives a one stop solution for Business Server Data Backup up your computer's data on the secure cloud servers. Our innovative platform has been designed while keeping you in mind. To provide optimal user experience we focus on simplicity and this in turn ensures that you will be able to backup and access large data quickly and smoothly.
