Hello trt38,

On the front panel of the DVD-RW, you should see a small hole, either above or below the tray. Take a paper clip and open it out. This should just about fit into the hole. Push the clip tip into the hole as far as it will go and keep poking around. This will actuate the manual release lever for the tray and the tray should pop out.
S-L-O-W-L-Y pull the tray out and take out your DVD. Restart the computer and the tray should go in automatically.

Hope this helps! You should be able to buy spares directly from the manufacturer or a local computer store. You could even try a google search to find a store near you, or you can purchase the parts online.

Should you have any further questions, please feel free to post them here.

P.S. Before you assign a rating, please make sure that the issue is resolved or you are satisfied.

My laptop aspire 5740 is not able to read the dvd & cd...so i am not able to installed any softwares though cd & dvd..please solve the problem..


Try opening your disk tray and cleaning the lens with a tissue and all of the drive from dust. If it still won't read you may have to buy a new optical drive as your current one has broken.
Have fun :)

My Toshiba DVD/ROM SD M1502 will play CDs but does not see DVDs. When I click on the drive icon in My Computer it says that its not in a format that it can read. I've tried looking for drivers and have...


Try the DVD disk in some other computer, to ensure that the disk itself is OK.
Try some other "known-good" DVD-disk in your Toshiba SD M1502 drive.

Or, spend $40 and purchase a brand-new, CD/DVD reader/writer, to replace the faulty device.

My dvd rw drive cant read dvd disc.when i insert the dvd disc in,nothing happen.


1. make sure you have a software player for DVD's not all computers have them installed

if you have a player like powerdvd, windvd ect try cleaning the drive with a dvd cleaning kit you can buy these at best buy, radio shack, if that still does not work you might have a bad drive and thus a new one needs to be purchased. let me know ether way if you got any questions otherwise please leave feedback and ratings thanks

I upgraded to xp and since then my sd c2512 drive will not play dvd's and says there is no dvd software. Also I dont have the original boot disk, do I need to buy dvd software? or is there a download fix...


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.

Sorry to inform you that this is not realistically possible. You would not only need to swap out the lens, but also the laser. These days you can pick up a store brand dvd player for about $20 brand new. I imagine if you looked hard enough and sourced a dvd unit that would fit the in the ps1 case and worked on the supplied voltage of the console it COULD work. But, you would be spending $100+ on parts and having a nightmare of a time retro fitting a dvd laser unit that was not made for that system.

Moral of the story... Just buy a cheap DVD player and keep the PS1 around for memory. Or maybe sell the the PS1 for $20 and buy a DVD player :)
Good Luck!
