Look at it close and you will see a tiny hole. Put a gem clip or something that small into the hole and it should open. You can also right click the drive in ( my computer) to open it up.

Please rate me if this helps.

    You should be able to get the manual from the Toshiba web site. It will be listed in the drivers and download section with your computers name and serial number. Sorry that I took so long to respond. I expected to get an e-mail letting me know when this was solved. The e-mail server has been down on the site.
    Glad that I could help. I am online most of every day. I will help you with any question that you have as soon as I can. I would give you my e-mail address, but that is forbidden from fixya. I am listed in the site directory though. Everything to contact me should be there. Good luck.

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.

My laptop Toshiba Satellite model: PSA 60U-02K015. The problem is the system keeps going in a loop in safe mode. It will not go to any windows program. How and what is the problem. How to download any pach...


During start up does it give you any options to start it normally?
Try hitting F8 during start up to see if your able to get it to boot normally.
Not sure what "pach" you are talking about.
BIOS shouldn't be the problem.
Sounds like you have a virus of some sort.

I have an acer aspire 5735 with windows vista home premium. The cd/dvd drawer will no longer open. I can open it using a needle in the little hole however when i put cds in the drawer they will not play...


Try checking in the bios if your cd/dvd is detected there. Try also removing the cd/dvd drive from the laptop and putting back in again. If it still not detected in the bios, have it replaced.

I need to restore my Satellite A65 to out of box state. The DVD stopped working as well. The recovery disk is a DVD. I tried to put it on a pin drive and restore from there. As I suspected, it restarts...


Starting with Windows Vista there is a big leap in doing a system restore or recovery. Windows 7 also has the same options. In case your system is not displaying any GUI or there is crash more often , just follow these
  • Press F8 when your computer starts.
  • Choose System Recovery which should be the first option
  • You will be prompted for user name password which should be an administrator account.
  • Next you will get 5 ways of making a restore : Startup repair, System Restore, Windows complete pc restore, Windows Memory Diagnostic tool and Command prompt
windows-vista-system-recovery-tool-windows-7.jpg

System Recovery tools in Windows Vista and Windows 7
Out of the 5 options, Windows Complete PC restore is used when you have backup of your pc or at least of the drive where you had installed windows. Command prompt recovery mode is only for advanced users and Memory Diagnostic tool is only used when windows gives notification to you and asks you to run it. Else it is not required to run it.

Notebook doesn't see new hdd


You can try upgrading the BIOS:

I don't know that's going to do it for you.

This software will allow you to backup and restore the BIOS, just in case, as well as give you another tool to try cloning the drive itself:

Won't open...


Hey this is a great site!
I was having a similar problem with my Toshiba SD-K860. Bobbyj, thanks for the link to the SD-4900 service manual, it was extremely helpful even though it was a different model. I could not find an emergency eject pinhole, and leaving the unit unplugged for a while did not help (two suggestions found on other sites), so I simply took the whole thing apart, got the disc out, found the eject slider on the bottom of the tray, massaged the tray open and closed, and put everything back together again. The connections were solid and the belt was in tact so everything seemed to be fine. Once I reassembled and powered it back up it worked again!
I posted a more detailed solution on my problems to solve site, which is similar to this one:
