Does not register in computer when plugged in

It says its a plug and play but when I plug in my Toshiba Pa3845u-1dv2 Dvdrw Portable Slot my computer comes up saying it cannot download drivers. I try inserting the CD that it came with that has WinDVD and BurnNow but since my computer won't register the device and give me a place to put the product key, the CD is a moot point. This happens on both my Windows 7 HP and my grandfathers Windows 7 Dell.

You need to get a driver for the USB CD drive. If you cannot download it online, just copy the files from the CD to a USB drive from another computer (with a working CD drive) and point the device (in device manager) to the folder you copied to your computer.

The hard drive is plug and play, no software is required. All you have to do is plug the hard drive into a USB slot. If it doesn't work then you know the hard drive is bad and you would have to get another one.

Reg mmc card reading

Normally you'd just be able to open My Computer, and plug the card in to the built in slot, and it would pop up as the next available drive letter. If the internal slot is missing or inoperative, you could buy a cheap MMC to USB adapter, plug the card into the adapter, and the adapter into a USB slot.
