Fail could mean a lot of things but those diagnostics (If I remember correctly) look at hardware. If you have a more concise message than just fail (I seem to remember they were) and it points at the cd/dvd first check the connection and if you happen to have an old cd player around try it...if it works and the other does not you have solved the problem. There is more to this but try this first .....FYI...if you were thinking of upgrading to a lightscribe or just wanted to have an extra CD ($10) it may be in your time interest to get one. Much more could mean anything from a bad cable to motherboard problem to....???? This is a start only....let me know....Tango

YOU MAY HAVE ACCIDENTALLY HIT THE FN+F9,F10,F11 OR F12 KEYS SIMULTANEOUSLY. TRY HOLDING DOWN THE FN KEY (NEXT TO THE CTRL KEY) AND LOOK FOR THE SYMBOL UNDER YOUR F9, F10 ETC... KEYS AND THAT SHOULD SOLVE YOUR PROBLEM.

Are these drives you have fitted yourself, or been added as after market drives?
If so you have run in to the odd way Toshiba set their optical drives as master or slave, although this is generally and IDE #1 error.
To fix this you need to solder pin 45 and 47 together.
47 is the key pin here, as it controls whether the drive is in SLAVE or MASTER mode.
grounded, the drive is in MASTER, open, it is in SLAVE.
pin 45 is simply a grounding pin.
So you'll need to open up the drive, turn it over, and put a small blob of solder on the two pins next to each other - 45 and 47.
If they are original drives or used to work then uninstall the drives and the IDE controllers in Device manager and reboot, letting windows redetect and install the hardware. Also try reinstalling the motherboard drivers available from Toshiba's support site.
