In order to change your DVD drive you need not take your system apart, there should be one screw on the bottom near your drive to remove which will allow you to slide the drive out.

Should you feel more comfortable with a picture guide for a similar model, here's a link

You can do it, don't get discouraged.

Tip

Upgrade CD/DVD ROM to CD-RW/DVD ROM


I just replaced my original CD/DVD ROM with a Toshiba SD-R2512 CD-RW/DVD ROM in my 1805-S253 running Windows ME. I used "Roxio Easy CD Creator" for writing to CD's. Everything was "plug'n'play" except the bezel that came with the new drive had to be swapped out. Windows ME recognized the new drive immediately and I didn't have to load any new drivers. This upgrade will probably work on other 1800 or 1805 Satellite series machines.

HOW DO I CHANGE CD/DVD DRIVE IN A TOSHIBA SATELLITE P105-S6114?


You can use the Toshiba Satellite guide for removing and replacing the DVD/CD-ROM drive or the keyboard. On this model you have to remove the keyboard in order to remove and replace the DVD/CD-ROM drive because the optical drive securing screw is located under the keyboard. Always start laptop disassembly with removing the battery or you can damage the system board if you accidentally touch it with a screwdriver and shorten traces. Removing the keyboard strip is not very difficult, use your fingers to release the plastic latches. If you want to replace the keyboard, do not forget to unlock the connector on the system boar before you pull the cable.

Replace cd rom with a dvd+rw cd rom in a toshiba satellite


You should be able to, there is usually only one screw holding the drive in, if you hold the replacement up to where the instlled one is, you should see the approximate location of the screw ( may be under another panel, Memory,hard drive etc.., the drive will just slide out, then make sure the connectors are the same, and swap or place the mounting bracket on the new one, and slide it back in place, replacing any screws removed

You can use almost any laptop cd rom, cd/rw, cd/rw-dvd rom, dvd rom, or dvd/rw that you can find. You might have to transfer the mounting pieces from the old to the new, but that is no big deal.

Should be able to find a used one for in the $20 to $30 range.

Replacing a DVD ROM with a DVD RW in a toshiba satellite L25-S119


Because it is a toshiba laptop, you will need to buy a model-specific dvd drive for your laptop direct from toshiba, or at least from an authorized toshiba reseller. This is not something you would get from your local best buy.

You want something like this:
http://www.toshiba.ca/web/product.grp?lg=en&section=1&group=2&product=3330

Order online, or select "Locate Dealer" and find one in your area.

My suggestion is to call up a dealer and verify that this model is compatible with your laptop, because yours is on the older side the slim select bays may be a little too small.
