Question about Toshiba Satellite Pro M15-S405 Notebook
With the age of that laptop take a damp qtip with glass cleaner on the laser of the dvd drive and wipe it off gently.
After this, try different dvd's and see if the drive works, if it does work then that means dust or dirt was getting in the way.
If it still doesn't work then the drive is bad and needs to be replaced.
