Unable to put discs in my Toshiba Satellite

I had a very similar issue with my Toshiba Satellite X205 SLi1. I ended up having to replace the drive, as the motor apparently went out. You can get a new drive on eBay for a fair price, and directions on swapping it out should be very easy to find online. It's usually a very easy swap on a notebook, even for people who have never done it before. But I'm sorry, I can tell you beyond a shadow of a doubt that your drive is a goner. It happens from time to time, especially if you use the drive a lot.

You need to change the boot sequence. Power on the computer and look for F12 on the screen. It will only be there for a few seconds. While it is there, hit F12 and select the boot drive.
