I assume you have a CD/DVD jammed into the drive ...

Most CD/DVD drives have a small hole at the front .. carefully push in one arm of a paperclip (you may have to go in 10mm or so) .. the drawer will then release with the power off ...

Dvd code 10


Check the cord connection between the dvd player and the computer. Re boot the computer and then plug the dvd player in. Be sure the dvd player is connected to the power source.
You should "see" it on the computer as an icon if you are displaying the desk top

If not, click on the desk top Windows icon, and then click on Computer when the pop up comes on.
You should see the display of your computer and hard drives
The dvd player icon should show up under "devices with removable storage" there.
Re check the dvd is actually on.
Click on Control Panel and then "Hardware and devices" You will see your printer etc.
If the dvd player doesnt show up, try and open the dvd player to load in a disc. If the tray doesnt open, the player is defective
If it does, then the fault is in the computer "Device Manager"
Go to the computer Device Manager and you will see the device name with a red x against it.

The two possible faults are
1. The driver is missing or damaged
2. The device is defective

If you have the skilset, delete the dvd driver and install it again from the manufacturers (Toshiba?) web site
If you dont, find a geeky friend!

My CD player doesnt work, i get the instruction to load disc in my digital disply but when i put a disc in any of the 5 slots, the disc doesnt spin and the player doesnt seem to grab my disc and pull it...


is there a button an player that says "load" - if so you need to push that before inserting discs

if you dont have that button you have a bad sensor that is not "seeing" when you put a disc in and telling the player to grab the disc and play it

if it is bad sensor you can try opening unit and looking for a sensor (probably an optical one and try cleaning it with a qtip and rubbing alcohol but that might not work and the sensor might have to be replaced

good luck!!

DVD player and CD player stop reading discs.


Hi,
try opening the Drive Trays, and hold a hot air dryer about 2-3 feet away for about 15-20 Minutes, Aim the dryer towards the opened trays. close the trays reboot the computer.
If still not working, i,d suggest putting a laser head cleaner in, and getting some more heat for your House.
Computers do usually tend to function much better at Room Temprature.
Hope this solves your problem.

My player doent accept dvd disc from canada


Your player doesnt play a dvd disc in canada this could be because of region limitations and your remote control has nothing to do with this problem try replacing with new pair of batteries and try again.

Thankyou
