Removal of the case will give you access to the drive mounting area. As a general procedure, disconnect the cables, remove the attaching hardware and remove the drive. Be sure to save the removed hardware for installation of the replacement drive

A cd broke inside my dvd writer while using it, and now it wont eject


on the left side of the front pannel just under the drawer you will see a pinhole.turn your cd unit upside down and insert a straightened paperclip in the hole keeping it straight as possible,the drawer should open enough to allow you to grip it .
if no luck you will have to remove the case top and manually remove the disc..

It does not want apareser in my PC when I connect it for usb


Does it appear when you try to connect it to some other computer?
If it NEVER appears, then try a different USB cable.
If it still fails to appear, something is broken.
Open the casing, remove the "dead" CD/RW drive, and replace it. Close the casing. Try again.

There should be no problems at all. Just go to the Toshiba web site, confirm that your computer can accept the new hardware and purchase a new dvdrom RW drive.

Combo Cd/Dvd Drive is not reading Cds nor DVDs


1. Remove your burner from your computer then open it by removing the screws under the burner.
2. When the cover has already been removed, get a cotton bud then soak it in alcohol to clean the lens. Because the lens might just be dirty. Then after that put the cover back by screwing it again then install it back to your computer.

Why my [sony cd rw dvd rom] will not detect a blank dvd disk


If you have the sony CD RW DVD ROM then you can't burn the data in a blank DVD.

Because your Configuration is :
Read : CD / DVD
Write : CD

This means you have a combo drive. But to burn a DVD you should have DVD RW.
