Did you buy this item as a notebook part, or did you buy another unit such as an external drive and take the drive out of it? If you took the drive out of another item, then you are going to have problems with the on board firmware. Toshiba is a nightmare for doing this.

Also some Toshiba computers do not allow you to upgrade the drive, even with a new Toshiba drive. I learnt this the hard way many years ago. At that time my new Toshiba Notebook would not recognize the New Toshiba DVD Drive, but my decade old Gateway Notebook did. I contacted Toshiba and they said they Firmware lockout new upgrades to encourage people to buy new computers.

Won't play music CDs


This may be a hardware problem - my drive was not recognizing any CDs, but read and played DVDs fine. There are separate CD and DVD detectors, and over time, one or the other may drift out of spec. I found a solution posted elsewhere on this site: If you remove the drive from the machine and open the drive tray, you'll see a metal plate held in place by three black screws. With a small (2mm) Phillips screwdriver, remove the plate. Gently lift the flat ribbon to the side and you'll see two very small potentiometers that can be adjusted with the same screwdriver. For a CD problem turn the one closer to the front of the drive about 1/8 turn clockwise, close everything up and try the drive again. You may have to repeat the procedure a couple of times before it reaches the right setting (mine took two tries). (The other pot controls the DVD reader.)

My toshiba laptop satellite A215-s7422 doesn"t play anymore


Assuming you have tried various DVD's & CD's sounds like a bad CD/DVD drive. These use a lens mounted on a moveable mount to focus the laser beam and over time the mount gets worn out and the beam can no longer focus so the drive can no longer read the DVD/CD. Should hear the DVD speed up then slow down and maybe a loud vibrating noise (Lens trying to focus). Can try a laser lens cleaner - you can get them at Best Buy, but if that does not work then a new DVD drive is in order. If you can change it yourself then you might find one on ebay used for @$25 otherwise a trip to the computer repair shop.

Need driver for 8x dvd drive for thinkpad


When a properly inserted and working drive is connected, it is automatically discoveredand installed. Specific drivers are not necessary or available. I will assume you are not talking about a DVD viewer application?

If the OS does not discover the drive, then the drive is likely defective, or not properly connected.

Unable to read some of the DVDs......


It's possible that the drive has died. CD and DVD drives are notorious for short lives but then I've seen some last 5 years. The lens could be dirty, just a small piece of lint is enough to cause hassles. Try using a Lens cleaner, available from all good audio shops. Some machines don't like +R disks and a firmware upgrade is needed. I've done many Liteon Drives with terrific results but if the manufacturer hasn't put one out then you're lost. It's possible you've used the wrong upgrade to fix your problem. With the prices of drives today it's sometimes cheaper to replace it. Believe me they can die quickly, my record is a week from brand new to unuseable and that was a Sony. BMW
