Go find a small paperclip - straighten it out and make it as smooth as possible - next look at the CD drive and find the two small holes - place the clip into the left hole until it stops give it a slight push like pushing a thumbtack into cork the drive should pop open if it does not try the hole on the right. If that does not work go tot the control panel open up the CD drive and click the button that has an arrow facing up with a line under it

My burner don't recognize the blank disc


Good day,

One of the reasons why a CD drive won't recognise a disc is if d disc is corrupt or not good again. I'll suggest that you buy another one and see if the cd drive will see it. If not, try putting a non-empty disc (either a movie disc) and see if it works. If it doesn't, then d burner might have a little problem.
But if it does work, please feel free to reply.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Installed new hard drive p105 s6064 now cd drive wont work dont have recovery discs


Dell recovery will not work in a Toshiba Laptop. Just make sure the boot order is set to CD/DVD driver first that will automatically start the CD/DVD driver when disc is loaded.

Recovery disc


Evidently Toshiba has a special page for this... it claims there is a recovery partition you can access to restore it to factory condition. Should this option fail, you can use the recovery discs it came with to restore manually... assuming the hard drive itself did not come defective (which is possible). If you determine the hard drive is shot I suggest you make a warranty claim... if you want it asap, buy a 2.5 in SATA HDD and get the service manual to install it, then run the recovery discs. I will warn you though these new laptops (2009+) sometimes don't take well to the 'wrong' parts being installed, the BIOS may not recognize it, or the recovery discs may not like it. If you going to go the surgical route, let me know. Good luck.

My Toshiba Model L505-S5993 laptop won't read


Hello there,

The problem is that the Drives lens is already bad and cannot read any disc, no matter the type of disc you put into it, it wont read it still. The solution is to replace the drive. Replacing it is the best way to solve the problem. If not trying to replace the lens is going to be futile as the lens for the driver is not available and when you install a new disc drive, it will have to install the drivers software.

If you replace the lens, the laptop wont be able to install the drivers of the lens as it reads it alongside the driver itself and if they are not compatible, it wont install the drivers software. So my best advice is for you to replace the CD drive.

My laptop is a typical example because my disc drive is also bad. And i had to replace the drive and not the lens.

Hope this was helpful to you.
Goodluck

My toshiba satellite just stopped working after installing kaspersky internet security. what should I do?


If it still boots, try hitting F8 during startup and see if you can boot safe mode (I'm assuming you're using Windows) and if so, use add-remove programs to uninstall the software.

If it doesn't boot at all then you might have a different problem altogether.

first things first.. if it's always freezing than it has some kind of internal damage. it could be as easy as replacing the hard drive or cd-rom, or maybe the disc your using is bad.
