So did CDs and DVDs play in this laptop before and now they don't? OK, if they did then I'd say try this first: Stay up to date with CCleaner Make sure you run the cleaner that defaults first then the Registry cleaner that will appear to your left of the program and scan and then fix. Save your info if you wish when the program asks if you wish to save.. I've been using this program for years and never once a single issue.

Hope this works. Post a screen shot back to me if you get your CD and DVD playing again by using Ccleaner.

Have a great day. OH, my windows based machine gain mass abouts of clutter that the computer has to constantly read through, slowing it down and preventing it from proper functionality.

SOURCE: WONT PLAY DVDS ,BUT PLAYS CDS

You need to check a few things. May seem basic, but we start with basic steps.
1) Is the drive a DVD capable drive? Not all optical drives are made to read CD's and DVD's. Earlier models only read CD's. Should either have a raised DVD symbol on the door or a sticker/painted on DVD symbol on the drive door or on the front of the drive somewhere. If so then continue. If not then you need to upgrade your drive. Easy to do on a desktop, maybe harder on a laptop (finding a drive that will fit).
2) is there any DVD player software on the computer? Most DVD players need special software to play the DVD's. If your computer did not come with a DVD and you added one later, you will need to install some software. You can try a google search to see if there are any free DVD player software out there.If you have DVD player software installed then continue.
3) Is there any conflicts in the device manager (Right click my computer, select properties, then Hardware and then Device Manager - XP instructions, if you have a different Operating system let me know) If you see a yellow exclamation point on your optical drive then you have a conflict that needs to be resolved. If all these check out then post a comment back and we will see what we can do. I would like to know what you find out.

check in control panel, system device manager to see if the system can see it..if it can, and drivers are ok, then it's the actual device(those are not too sturdy usually).

see if it can still boot the cd , put in a windows cd
go into the bios and set the cd as boot device in boot order.
save and exit with cd in drive
you will get a prompt at boot to press any key to boot cd
do this and let it run until the next prompt screen then exit .
if it never will boot the cd , time to replace drive.

SOURCE: After I reinstalled my pc, the toshiba dvd-rom (sd-c2502) only plays cds, not dvds.

Try re-installing your the driver for your dvd rom. Then try to put different dvds and check if it can read from your drive. If problem remains, I suspected it's your dvd rom is faulty
