Dear Erica,
Greetings from New Zealand! First thing: NEVER MOVE YOUR COMPUTER WHILE IT IS GOING! The Hard-drive read/write heads are less than a hair's breadth from the surface of the disks & any movement while the HDD disks are spinning will cause a "head-crash" which can destroy your HDDrive.
Turn comp. OFF.Wait 30x sec. Covering the dvd/rw - GENTLY lift box & shake - if you hear a rattling inside, then the dvd/rw mount screws have come loose inside the box. Make sure that the power switch on the wall is OFF, but still plugged into socket, OPEN box & "earth" your body by touching some bare metal inside to discharge any damaging "static electricity" - [your body can hold up to 50,000xVolts] - & retreive them. {It is preferable for you to purchase - $5ish - an "anti-static strap" & wear that anytime you open a computer case...} Note the type of screws that the dvd/rw is mounted with & get suitable screw-driver. Gently slide dvd/rw into place & line up screw holes...screw in screws - (not TOO tight! - replace cover & you should be 'good-to-go'!
There are a few cases that do not use screws - they rely on moveable levers to clamp devices into place. If so just align dvd/rw unit flush with the front of the case & clamp.
Replace side entry panel of computer box. Place box in preferred position & reboot. I hope that this helps!? - Kind regards GBU! - Bruce.

SOURCE: Replacement for toshiba satellite A105-S4244 dvd r/rw drive

Sure--the best one is e-bay!
Whenever I need something like this, I find it on e-bay. But if you really need to contact a company, try Spare Parts Wearhouse at 877-253-8898. National Parts Depot at 800-524-8338 may carry Toshiba parts.
I'd almost bet that the part you need is not made by Toshiba, though. Take it out and when looking for a replacement look for the mfg. name and the model.

Replacing dvd/rw in a toshiba


Post the model number of the Toshiba Satellite Notebook PC

This can be found on the Bottom of the laptop.

Optical drives for laptops usually just slide out to remove, or silde in. There is an Interface 'block' on the motherboard they plug into.
Usually just one Philips head screw, on the bottom of the laptop; is what holds them in.

Awaiting model number, to give more specific info

While waiting, one example,

L305D-S5930 dvd wont burn documents to a dvd disc


You need a program, like nero.
if that doesn't work then put a DVD in the drive & see if the computer picks it up in the my computer.
the first thing that goes in a CD/DVD-RW drive is the DVD heads, thats if your drive is a CD/DVD-RW.
Have a look on the front of the drive tray, if it say CD-RW DVD ROM then it doesn't burn DVD's it only plays them.
