CD-RW/DVD-ROM can not read and CD or DVD

Hello,

I have Toshiba Tecra 9100 netebook. Its CD/DVD ROM can not read CD recently. I tried my CD and DVD. It doesn't work even the original recovery CDs. The CD can rotate inside the DC driver. The reading led indicator show that it is working but the files in CD can not show up.

Is this CD/DVD ROM damaged? Any suggestion? thank you very much.

DVD/CD-RW-Device does not read any CD'Rs.


The drive must have "died".

If the computer is still under warranty, contact Toshiba, and get it repaired.

If the warranty has expired, take the computer to a qualified technician, who will remove the dead unit, install a new drive, and reassemble the computer.
Cost will be about $60 for "one-hour-labour", plus the cost of the new drive.

Hi I have a Toshiba Tecra M2 laptop with Windows XP Pro SP3. My CD-RW/DVD-ROM/CD-ROM drive is not working. When I try to burn a disc, it says no recorder, or no disc in drive. Also, Windows doesn't seem to...


>> it says IDE #1 error when it boots up.

IDE #0 is your disk-drive.
IDE #1 is your CD/DVD drive.

So, take your computer to a qualified technician, to first check that the connectors (power, data) from the motherboard to the CD/DVD drive are good, and then, if necessary, to remove & replace the "dead" drive.
