Toshiba Satellite L20-101.

Recently I have deleted some programs from the combuter and I have realised that the CD/DVD is not working. I have checked the system device manager and it shows a question mark on the CD/DVD device. What can I do in order to fix it?
Thank you in advance

    Thank you very much for your help, but that is not working. The symbol of CD/DVD still appears with the exclamation mark.

Toshiba satellite l655d-s5093 d: drive issue


Buy a drive cleaning CD/DVD, those from dollar store may also work, clean the drive a few times and it should read CD/DVD.
Alternatively look at the Toshiba support drivers fro firmware update to your specific drive. Make sure you get all the recommended and critical Toshiba updates.

Hello, the cd/dvd drive in my satellite A105 S4334 laptop is not reconized by the computer, it has power but it doesn't show in My Computer


One of two things are wrong.
You could have a bad setting in your registry. Download and run CDGONE. One place to get this utility is: http://www.geekstogo.com/forum/files/file/8-cdgone/

The other possibility is that the CD has gone bad and must be replaced--a relatively simple fix.

Is there a destructive recovery option on toshiba satellite a105, i have no recovery cd


I'm not really sure what you are asking. If you see an option on startup that says something like press f11 or something for system recovery, then you can recover from the recovery partition--assuming there is one.
You can probably order a recovery CD or DVD from Toshiba, also.

Toshiba Satellite P105-s6147 CD/dvd drive some how uninstalled


Registry edits not usually a good idea. System restore is your friend. Some DVD burning apps will change your registry and cause the CD/DVD to disappear. Uninstall the new burning app, or system restore to a time you know it was working.

DVD drive on Toshiba Satellite M35X-S311 not working


Ooops! Hate it when I delete necessary stuff !!! Go into the device manager and uninstall the optical drive (cd/dvd drive), then reboot. It should find the drive and reinstall it. If it doesn't, then do a hardware search from the device manager. If it still doesn't find it, then do a system restore to a point before deleting the files.
