Toshiba TEAC CD-224E BA - not playing CDs at all

CD player isn't playing CDs at all. Was working perfectly up until recently, but suddenly stopped and not sure why. Driver version is 5.1.2535.0 and running on a Toshiba Tecra 8200 laptop, with Windows XP Pro SP2 (version 2002). Don't know where to start. Some pointers appreciated.

Re: Toshiba TEAC CD-224E BA - not playing CDs at all

Just replace the drive - the Teac CD-224E is housed in the SelectBay housing and any Teac CD-224E that came out of Toshiba will do. eBay would be your best bet. If you pay more than $10 then you must be a tourist...

No play cd or dvd

Hello there,

This might be caused by a dirty lens. Try running a disc cleaner and let it spin for about 30 seconds then try again. If it doesnt work, then you may need to clean the lens manually by taking off the casing and cleaning the lens with a soft qtip or a swab damped in an alcohol. Gently wipe the lens in a circular manner and let it dry. Put back the casing and try again. Hope this helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have an external teac dv-28e-n usb DVD writer device which does not recognise and burn DVD rewritablce discs.

I think that Teac DV-28e Is a CD/DVD-ROM only, and will not burn discs. Teac DW-28e is a CD RW/ DVD ROM unit, and will thus play and burn CDs, but will only play DVDs. Check your model numbers to confirm, and then consider exchanging units if you need to burn CDs.

We have a TEAC stand alone CD copier which has stopped working. It won't copy audio files to the slave disk and we've tried using different blank CDs and different master discs. Sometimes ti looks as if it...

It sounds (pun intended) like the laser part of CD-writer "inside" the unit has failed, thus resulting in "blank" disks.

Disassemble the unit, and replace the CD-writer with any IDE (not SATA) unit.

My teac dvd/cd player wont play some cds

Probably a codec problem on the notebook. rather than a drive problem. Try a 3rd party media player such as Real Player or Quicktime
