Make sure the CD drive is fine. When you insert the CD, does the CD drive's LED on at all? In Device Manager, did you see the CD drive is detected / working properly? Or if the CD drive is broken, Toshiba covers the warranty? If not, then you may buy a USB CD-drive.

My Toshiba Model L505-S5993 laptop won't read


Hello there,

The problem is that the Drives lens is already bad and cannot read any disc, no matter the type of disc you put into it, it wont read it still. The solution is to replace the drive. Replacing it is the best way to solve the problem. If not trying to replace the lens is going to be futile as the lens for the driver is not available and when you install a new disc drive, it will have to install the drivers software.

If you replace the lens, the laptop wont be able to install the drivers of the lens as it reads it alongside the driver itself and if they are not compatible, it wont install the drivers software. So my best advice is for you to replace the CD drive.

My laptop is a typical example because my disc drive is also bad. And i had to replace the drive and not the lens.

Hope this was helpful to you.
Goodluck

My toshiba satellite E205-S1904 won't read cd disk.


System: Toshiba satellite E205-S1904
Pre-Installed O/S: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition

To resolve this problem, remove the affected filter drivers. To do this, follow these steps:
  1. Click Start vistastartbutton.jpg, type regedit in the Start Search box, and then click regedit in the Programs list.

    securityshield.jpg If you are prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type your password, or click Continue.
  2. Locate, and then click the following registry subkey: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}Caution There can be many instances of the registry subkey that is mentioned in step 2. You must make sure that you are in the appropriate registry subkey before modifying the UpperFilters and the LowerFilters values. To verify that you are in the appropriate registry subkey, make sure that the Default data value is DVD/CD-ROM and the Class data value is CDROM.
  3. In the right pane, if you have UpperFilters, right-click UpperFilters, and then click Delete.
  4. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the UpperFilters registry entry.
  5. In the right pane, if you have LowerFilters, right-click LowerFilters, and then click Delete.
  6. Click Yes to confirm the removal of the LowerFilters registry entry.
  7. Exit Registry Editor, and then restart the computer.

Toshiba laptop cd drive not working


If its not detected in device manager and your laptop has HDD recovery
1 type toshiba application installer in the start search box, press enter
2 in that program choose "install application and drivers", click next
3 it will go to a window where you have the list of all the drivers
4 look for the CDDVD drive, click it to highlight
5 click install

afterwards if its still not detected you probably have a hardware issue and probably the drive itself needs to be replaced

Toshiba satellite A205 - cd/dvd drive doesn't work


Hi there.

The CD/DVD drive uses Class Filter Drivers. These have probably been currupted or are missing. All you should need to do, is re-install the Chipset Drivers (Intel).

Here's the link:

Let me know if that works.
