The dvd drive is not being recognized. I took it to Geek @ Best Buy and they said it needed to be replaced. Can I do this myself? Where would I buy a replacement drive? Thanks for any help.

With a small jewelers' screwdriver you should be able to take it out.

Check ebay.com for a mail order source of the drive based on your model #.

You may want to get specific instructions for your laptop from your manufacturer for replacement of the dvd drive.

Unable to read data on drive


Hi Franoisebis,

I can help you with that, you will need a data recovery pro to attempt to retrieve your data. Unfortunately Geek Squad really isn't equipped to do that. If you reply with your Country, State and City I will direct you to an appropriate Pro nearest your location.

Go back to best buy. the closest one to you. and see about yoru exteneded warranty. Toshiba dont deal with the extended warrentys.A 3rd party company is looking after it for you (best buy) i guess geek squad.. If the warrenty is out and you gotta pay 600 dollors to replace your computer motherboard. all depending on what you use it for an entry level laptop is close to 600 dollors great for web browseing and office use school, some games.
