Tip

Testing a Laptop DVD-RW DVD+RW or CD


Have you ever tried repairing a laptop which has a failed Optical drive, only to discover later that the drive itself wasn't bad after all? The problem we face as technicians is that a wrong diagnosis will result in permanent ownership of that Drive unless the vendor is willing to take it back.

Not all Laptop Optical drives are created the same. Most models have a unique bezel design that will not fit correctly into another laptop due to the shape of the bezel itself. This will require removal of the bezel, and may break the retention clips that hold it in place.

A better solution is available however.
This adapter which sells on Ebay for a mere 99 cents with 42 cents shipping (at the time of this tip)

Will allow you to attach and test ANY IDE based Laptop Optical drive to your desktop PC with a standard IDE cable and floppy power connector.

This model incorporates Sata to Laptop IDE Optical Drive compatibility.

And this model converts Laptop SATA to Desktop SATA.

So as you can see, testing without Bezel destruction is indeed possible for Laptop Optical drives of any type without the risk of damaging another laptop in the process. All of these adapters are reasonably priced, and some are priced so low that you can't possibly afford not to have one if you are a PC tech like me. All models shown are listed on Ebay right now, but since most of them ship from mainland China you will have about a 2 to 3 week delivery date.
Hopefully this tip has helped you.
If so, please vote for me!

Error loading operating system amessage appear on toshiba satellite A15-S127 and operating system cd on dvd and it didn't boat from dvd what can i do? or how can i enter setup


So you have a potential problem with the hard drive and a known problem with the optical drive. Replace the optical drive first: it's easy (one screw at the bottom, another one underneath the keyboard - these are the only 2 screws holding the optical drive in). You can buy a replacement drive, new or used, on eBay for $10 - $20 delivered. After that, you should be able to figure out if the hard drive's problems are OS related or HW failure. HDD's are cheap, too. This model uses 2.5" ATA IDE drive (30 or 40G or you can go larger), figure 50 cents to 75 cents per gigabyte, and you'll be okay. Just don't pay tourist prices for these things....

I purchased a Cruzer USB 2.0 Flash Drive 4gb and when I inserted it into port for first time, I think it installed some kind of driver first and I was able to use it find. How ever when I when to my DVD RW...


Unless your computer or flash drive did something weird, the USB drive had nothing to do with the DVD drive issue. (There have been drives sold with malware do to issues at the manufacturer/distributor. These affect the registry so you might try rolling back to a previous configuration in the System Restore after you do a malware/antivirus scan either in Safe Mode or from a LiveCD (preferred). The advantage of the LiveCD is that the malware really can't protect itself since the boot sequence is fully independent of the usual OS.)

Most likely though your optical drive failed for some other reason. Check the device manager for any driver issues (Control Panel > Hardware or Computer > right click on the optical drive and choose Properties and then the Hardware Tab followed by clicking on the optical drive. Then click Properties and the Drivers tab.). If you can, try a disc cleaner to clean the lens. Also check that the cables are fully seated (both to the motherboard and the optical drive). Consider trying a new data cable.

With today's prices, it usually isn't worth repairing an optical drive. However the most common issue is the lens tracking and lens transport system.

I hope this helps.

Hi i want to instoal software but i have laptop windows vista so how to instoal


It depends on the laptop and the software. If the laptop does not have an optical drive, either download the software (many companies will let you buy the software as a download with an extra fee for either a CD/DVD sent in addition or an "download again if needed") or get an external optical drive (USB). Some of these drives use an external power brick; others are powered by USB and take 2 USB ports. The prices for the USB powered optical drives is ~$50.

If you downloaded the software, unzip the file(s) if needed then right click on the installer and select Run As Administrator. (With some software, do not let the program run when the install is finished. It can get locked to always launch the UAC to check if you are the administator.) With the external optical drive, you would install the software as you do with an internal optical drive (either auto-run or manually access the drive and find the executable file).

I hope this helps.
