Question about Toshiba Satellite M45-S265 Notebook
My DVD-CDRW combo drive has stopped working. It won't do an auto-run, or read anything. I can find sites where I can buy a new one for around $150.00. I need to know how easy it is to install a new one in these laptops, whether I can do it myself or just have someone else do it, even though that would be the more costly way.
I had this same problem and fixed it. In many cases there is NO NEED TO GET an new combo if the old one isn't physically broken. All you need to do is run an optical drive fix. This fixes the registry filters and should handle your problem immediately.

Rarely will you find a model with a hard to remove cd-rom drive. Ussually it takes just one screw to remove the drive. If you have trouble replacing the drive yourself there are usually repair manuals available on the manufacturers website, or we'd be happy to find the manual or a tutorial for you :-) (given the exact make and model # of your laptop)

Tips for a great answer:
Click on Start, Run, and type regedit and press Enter
Click on the plus signs (+) next to the following folders
This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.
If any of the above keys shown in step 4 are listed, right-click on them and choose Delete
After deleting the keys, close the registry editor
Reboot your computer
Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.
if this fails to fix the problem
It could be a problem with the lens you could use a liquid type lens cleaner place 2-3 drops on top of a cd/dvd then run it if this fails you might try cleaning the lens it's already gone bad there is no harm in trying If you take a little risk can solve . follow the instruction: Don't panic its very simply. 1.
