Cd rom is found


Here are solutions:
  • Buy a drive cleaning CD/DVD, those from dollar store may also work, clean the drive a few times and it should read CD/DVD.
  • Alternatively look at the Toshiba support drivers for firmware update to your specific drive. Make sure you do get all the recommended and critical Toshiba updates. Check it here: http://support.toshiba.com/support/home

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.

Dvd ,cd worn't work


the driver should allready be installed with windows

What type of problem are you having with the drive?

Does the drive read CD's but not DVD's or niether one?

Did the drive work fine and suddenly stop reading just DVD's but still reads CD's most of the time?

Or is this a new drive that hasn't worked at all yet?

for CD use the driver should allready be installed with windows and almost never needs to be installed seperately

for DVD playback in windows XP you will need to install some sort of DVD driver into the system like power dvd or windvd or you can download DVD support for windows media player here : http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/player/plugins.aspx#DVDDecoder

But I would need answers to some or at least one of the following questions before being able to help any further

1. What type of problem are you having with the drive?
2. Does the drive read CD's but not DVD's or niether one?
3. Did the drive work fine and suddenly stop reading just DVD's but still reads CD's most of the time?
4. Or is this a new drive that hasn't worked at all yet?
5. What operating system are you using?

I hope this info helps (please let me know if it does not)
