If it reads data it will read music (which is only data!)

Do you have a Music Program installed? The type of program will depend on whether the music is in CD Audio format or is in the MP3 format.

Windows media player should be able to read Audio CD's (but I don't think it will read MP3's). If you are trying to play a CD encoded as MP3 then you will need to search for a program that plays MP3's (there are many free ones on the Internet.

If it will not read Data, then buy another unit and install it (they are terribly cheap nowadays and uneconomical to repair).

Good luck.

My toshiba L645D wont recognize that some DVD's are in the player while other DVD's it sees an plays. its newer dvd's like Madea's Witness Protection an Battle Los Angeles(for example)it wont see but...


It could be due to a regional issue or related to the type of format.

Regional codes are software lockouts; to deter copyright infringements and piracy issues.

Two basic formats are PAL and NTSC and they are not compatible with each other. For example, a DVD sold in a country that uses the PAL video standard (like England) will not play in a player designed with the NTSC format; Unless of course you have a DVD player that is compatible with both video formats.

Then there's the possibility that the media itself is damaged with a permanent scratch.

If you own an older model DVD player that doesn't support write/re-write discs, that can be an issue as well.

If the format of the recording is a wmv or AVI extension type, unless they are converted to your player's readable format- the movie will not play.

So check the media type you are attempting to play to the type your DVD player will read.

Hope this helps ~ best regards.

Cant open dvd drawer


Sometimes DVD player drawers get stuck closed because the disc inside isn't seated properly. At other times the player may have another problem. The first step in discovering if it is the disc or another issue is to remove the disc. Most DVD players have a secret eject button. It allows you to open the drawer when a disc gets stuck and cannot be ejected normally.
For this you'll need a standard size paperclip.

  1. Unfold the paperclip and make it as straight as possible.
  2. Look closely at your DVD player . Push the tip the paper clip into the small hole on the tray cover on the front of the Toshiba. The hole is on the right side of the cover.
  3. Press inward gently with the paperclip until you feel a slight resistance, then continue pushing to engage the internal eject button. The tray should pop open partway.
  4. Gently pull the drawer until it's fully retracted. Be careful not to pull too far.
  5. Remove your disc from the drive.
  6. Before you reinsert another disc, use the remote and/or buttons on the player to close the door, and reopen it. You can also press carefully with your fingers. If you cannot open/close the drawer normally at this point, do not put in a new disc until you have repaired the problem.

Program says dvd+r incompatible with toshiba dvd player


Some DVD players will read 'DVD-R' ("minus-R") disks.
Some DVD players will read 'DVD+R' ("minus+R") disks.
Some DVD players will read "both" types of disks.

So, if you're burning onto a DVD+R disk, you won't be able to "play" the disk on your Toshiba DVD-player.

Instead, buy "blank" DVD-R disks, and write on them.

It wont read any disc,and wont burn any disc


Numerous possibilities:

Lens cannot focus... Haze on lens. Needs to be cleaned.

Unfortunately my experience is that the power supply to the laser section is running on the low side and the unit needs technical repair. I'd be interested in learning if anyone else has suggestions that have worked for them.
