The Samsung CD-Rom SC148A on my Dell Dimension 2400 won't recognize any discs that I insert. Device Manager says there's nothing wrong with it, the driver is up-to-date, troubleshooting provided nothing,...


It might be dirt on the pickup lens, and you can try cleaning it. The best way to do that is to take the drive out, remove the cover and use a cotton swab moistened with lens cleaning solution. The cleaning discs you can buy aren't usually effective. But if you're going to go through all that effort, you may as well just replace the drive. If dirt isn't the problem, the most likely cause is that the laser power has dropped too low for the discs to be read, or the pickup has failed. In that case, you'll need to replace the drive anyway. A new CD-RW/DVD-RW drive is only around $20 (or something equally inexpensive in your local currency), and it's easy to change the drive, so it's really not worth worrying about trying to repair this one.

It sounds like you have done your homework, I suggest checking out ebay for a replacement for your CD-ROM, new would be better, but if you want to save money you might be able to scoop up a good used one at a cheap price.

Were to get a toshiba cd-rom


I searched for Toshiba CD-ROM drives and found only support references to products made about ten years ago. Toshiba shows only hard drives on its storage device products page. I could be wrong, but it appears Toshiba is not in the CD/ROM drive business anymore.

Is there a particular reason you must have a Toshiba brand CD-ROM? Any CD-ROM with the same interface type should work, if you can find a driver compatible with your operating system. If I recall correctly, Toshiba uses Sony optical drives in its laptop computers. (So far as I know Toshiba always used standard interfaces, so a proprietary drive should not be an issue.) The prices on CD-R and CD- R/W devices have come down considerably in the last several years, so you may want to consider one of those if your computer is fast enough to support reliable disc burning operations (800 MHz or better should suffice).

Cd rom


There are very many problems that It could be when you cannot open the cd rom drive, the best way to find out the problem would be to remove the drive that wont open and open the top, have a look inside and see if there is anything that could be causing this.
If you had a more detailed problem then people might have better answers. sorry

Change CD R/RW


I'm pretty sure the cables for all writers/readers are the same. One thing is for sure, if they fit they will work.
