Though most of the time it has to be replaced with the exact same part, in some cases, such as yours, a variety of parts\models is compatible.
Kindly take a look at this parts list...

Best regards,
Pelu.

You're going to have to do a minor tear down to remove the drive to get the specific model number as there are at least 3 different types of optical drive available. You'd have to do this in any case to remove the old one and replace it.

Replacing dvd/rw in a toshiba


Post the model number of the Toshiba Satellite Notebook PC

This can be found on the Bottom of the laptop.

Optical drives for laptops usually just slide out to remove, or silde in. There is an Interface 'block' on the motherboard they plug into.
Usually just one Philips head screw, on the bottom of the laptop; is what holds them in.

Awaiting model number, to give more specific info

While waiting, one example,

Difficulty to open cd rom o my pc how to solve?


Repairing your Optical Drive problem isn’t that difficult task.

Unfortunately you have failed to prove the Manufacturer Name and Model Number of your particular specific CD-ROM Optical Drive so I am unaware of what particular specific CD-ROM Optical Drive information to provide.

However if you use Google Search (http://www.google.com) and search the topic Repair CD-ROM you will be able to obtain information on how to disassemble and repair your specific CD-ROM Optical Drive. Examples of a Google Search are provided below ->

http://www.repairfaq.org/sam/cdfaq.htm

http://repair4laptop.org/notebook_op...cd_dvd_mo.html

http://www.repairfaq.org/REPAIR/F_cdfaq9.html

The most difficult part of the repair will be finding the correct size replacement 0-Ring that fits your particular specific CD-ROM Optical Drive. You could try checking with local Computer Repair Shops and see if the have a broken CD/DVD Optical Drive that has the correct size 0-Ring that might work in your particular specific CD-ROM Optical Drive.

On another note now days Optical Drives are inexpensive and you can obtain a replacement CD/DVD Optical Drive for less than 30 bucks.
Hope it helped you. Thanks.

My Toshiba Satellite M45, model no psm43u-00s00f is not working correctly. The D Drive is not recognizing cd's when they are inserted into the computer. Any ideas on how to get this working? According to...


Try re-installing the drivers for the drive using your driver CD that came with the laptop or visit the manufacturer's website to download the drivers for the drive, install and restart your laptop.

If it is a software problem, then this should fix it. If not, then it would be a hardware problem(your lens may be weak). You could also try using a lens cleaner to clean the lens since it might be dirty.

If not, then you would have to change your drive.
