How do i play a DVD on my computer? I is a Satellite Pro L770 Series


You need DVD playing software on the laptop to play. It usually comes with the laptop if you have the original install disks. Otherwise you will need something like http://download.cnet.com/Easy-DVD-Player/3000-7970_4-10104512.html

Toshiba Satellite P15 Series..disk drive not working


usually when your cd/dvd/burner drive no longer reads or properly write, (when you can't read the cd is when you put a cd in the tray but nothing comes up when you try to open the drive within the folder and you know that the cd is not blank. there's no actual way around the fact of drive may have died, usually this parts may be replaceable but replacing a disk drive in laptop is costly (no much the part which could run for 40-50 dollars but the actual labor replacing it (100-150 dollars), I suggest ebay for part search.
the actual solution is to: 1. accept the loss 2. use a portable cd/dvd/burner unit through usb ports.
unfortunately there's no bios o driver updates that can be suggested that may address the problem your are having but in case you may want to try an driver or bios update this is the website to go to http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/tais/support/jsp/modelContent.jsp?ct=SB&os=&category=&moid=556036&rpn=PSP10U&modelFilter=P15-S470&selCategory=2756709&selFamily=1073768663
good luck!

No blank cd in drive, please insert blank disk, THERE IS A DISK!


Buy a new CD drive

-When the reading laser goes out on a CD drive, this is the error it gives. The motor to open and close still works, the computer just isn't able to read the CD.

make sure the device is enabled in windows and in the bios.
also disable any advance features (check with toshiba if you have any.. .and make sure your driver is updated before), lastly play around with the settings (make sure the driver is updated before doing this)

and remember to try one thing at a time, test, then move on to try something else.. be patient and methodic.
