Optical drive removal varies among notebooks. Some have quick-release gadgets, which may be on the bottom of the notebook or in the memory compartment. Some have screws that need to be removed from the notebook bottom. On my Satellite Pro 6000, it's on the bottom, aligned with the drive, but halfway to the other side of the case. If this is the case, pop it out. Get the model number off of the drive; you may have to replace it with the same one. While most optical drive chassis are standard, the drawer fronts are different, and not necessarily exchangeable.

Try running an external virus checker that runs from your USB port or CD/DVD drive. I think that you may have picked up a Boot virus or you may have a corrupted Bootstrap file.

Unplug from the mains and then remove the battery. Leave for ten minutes then put the battery back on. If it still does not work then it has had it. turn it over so you can access the underside and locate the one screw that holds the drive to the chassis. remove the screw and the drive will slide out. Take the drive to a computer shop and buy a replacement. refit in reverse and all will be well.

The Toshiba DVD player won't play a DVD nor will Windows Media Player play a DVD. Downloaded another free DVD player from web and it worked momentarily then quit.


Check the Toshiba site for updated drivers for your dvd player. Also check the recall section for your particular model dvd player. They had several that were recalled.
