Try removing the dvd software and reinstalling it. I had this happen on a Sony Vaio and then after the computer crashed and I reinstalled everything, the dvd player worked. I tried downloading updates for the WinDvd software, but that didn't fix it. If the cdrom unit is bad, then it is a lost cause and too pricey to replace, unless you get a scrap part laptop.

Untill yesterday my Tosiba Portege M600 was able to recognize the DVD R/W. But from today it has suddenly stopped detecting it. I thought of formating my by bootable CD but the Bios is also not able to...


Hi!

Maybe your Toshiba M600 needs only a little cleaning.
The best way to fix the problem is to insert a optical drive cleaning disk an let it run.
Those cleaning disks are cheap, easy to find and very helpful.

Hoipe it helped,

best regards,

How do I remove my hard drive from my Toshiba Satellite R15-S829?


READ THIS ALL THE WAY THROUGH. REMOVE THE BATTERY AND POWER BEFORE ANY WORK IS DONE. HAVE ALREADY BACKED UP ALL YOUR DATA.

Toshiba Support Site warns not to try this at home.

User's Manual does not list HD removal.

That being said.....
this is the instructions for a P15-S479, but may be what you need.

Instructions:
The hard drive is located under the CD/DVD drive. Before you start taking apart the laptop, remove the battery and unplug the AC power.
1. You have to remove the CD/DVD drive. Turn the laptop over. Remove one screw right above the dive and slide the drive out of the laptop.
2. When the CD/DVD drive is removed, you’ll see a metal plate. The metal plate is secured by 4 screws. Remove them and lift up the plate from the bay. The hard drive is located right under the plate.
3. After you remove the plate, you’ll see the hard drive. The hard drive also secured by 4 screws. Remove the screws, slide the hard dire to disconnect it from the connector on the moterboard and lift it up.
4. You have to transfer the brackets from the old hard drive to a new hard drive. Also, if there is a foil shielding around the old hard drive, you’ll have to transfer it to a new hard drive too.
Here’s a disassembly guide with pictures: Toshiba Satellite P10/P15 laptops. How to remove the hard drive.


Remember the precautions and warranty information from Toshiba before you start. Try to have someone who is really into laptops before you begin

Good luck

ps: Other laptops have their HD's under the keyboard, or in a removable door on the bottom.

Cannot open cd-rom drive!


The thing about cd/dvd drives in general is that they die and thats the case here even if you deleted anything of the operating system its self would notice that the cd drive was missing the driver and ask you about it since you havent stated that its safe to say that the drive is dead

Install Window XP into Eee PC without external DVD drive?


Each computer needs its own operating system in which you do you have linux as a pre-install. If you want XP, you will need an external dvd/cd rom drive. It is worth it if you think about it...running xp, you're bound to run into other software you will likely need in the future, so getting an external cd/dvd drive would not be a waste of your money.
