That is certainly the most likely reason,it is broke ,you will need to replace the drive
as their is nothing you can do to repair it,
good luck

Please checked in bios, is your dvd detected ?
if your dvd isnot detected, most of the time is your dvd, sometime it mainboard problem.

Also checked in the device manager, is your dvd there and need driver ?
if yes, you have 2 option, you can reload your OS or you can edit the registry.
follow this step if you want to edit the windows registry:

Sd-ms memory card port


Could be, or maybe you do not have the proper driver installed. Look in My Computer > System > Device Manager, and see if it is even showing.

If that device is showing, and does not have an ! or ? in yellow over it, your card is not good.

Cannot open cd-rom drive!


The thing about cd/dvd drives in general is that they die and thats the case here even if you deleted anything of the operating system its self would notice that the cd drive was missing the driver and ask you about it since you havent stated that its safe to say that the drive is dead

Problem with cd/dvdw driver


An exclamation mark next to the cd/dvdw in device manage means that there is a problem with the device's drivers. Either they are not the correct driver, or it has become corrupt. Try reinstalling the driver from the Toshiba website.

I can't get the computer to find a cd or dvd, it keeps saying please insert disc - but its already in there.


Your driver(s) may be corrupt. Try this. RIGHT click on MY COMPUTER from your desktop, select PROPERTIES from the drop down menu, select the HARDWARE tab, click on the DEVICE MANAGER button, click on the (+) by the DVD/CD-ROM DRIVES line, RIGHT click the drive that isn't working, (this part may sound scary) select the UNINSTALL option, click OK in the warning box, then restart your computer. On restart, WIndows will automatically detect the deleted DVD/CD-ROM drive and will install the appropriate non-corrupt driver(s). This should solve your problem. If not the drive may be defective. Hope this helps!
