First open the "Device Manager" to check for any error messages related to the device and click on "Start" and select "Control Panel" .

Now double-click on the "System" icon then click on the "Hardware" tab and click the "Device Manager" button. A new window appears, and displays whether the device is working properly. If there are any errors, click the "Troubleshoot" button and follow the given onscreen instructions.

Check the DVD that you are trying to use to and ensure that it is free of dirt and scratches and the proper format compatible with your drive.

Now uninstall any drivers that may be on your computer from previous DVD drives.

Now download the latest driver updates for your DVD drive model from Toshiba website & install it.

Also check on Toshiba website that your machine has the minimum requirements to operate the drive.

Now restart your computer & check your DVD drive.
I hope issue has been resolved.

If the same problem is still occurring, get the reliable technical assistance at for troubleshoot all kind of Toshiba laptop and desktop problems.

Replacement for toshiba satellite A105-S4244 dvd r/rw drive

Sure--the best one is e-bay!
Whenever I need something like this, I find it on e-bay. But if you really need to contact a company, try Spare Parts Wearhouse at 877-253-8898. National Parts Depot at 800-524-8338 may carry Toshiba parts.
I'd almost bet that the part you need is not made by Toshiba, though. Take it out and when looking for a replacement look for the mfg. name and the model.

Unable to restore laptop using recovery disk.

Remove the single screw that holds the dvd bay. It is the closest to the centre of the base and is not marked 9B. The bay can then be slid out.
