DVD/CD Drive won't operate anymore on a E Machines W5243

E Machines W5243 DVD+/-R/W/RAM/CD-RW drive has suddenly stopped running any discs (games, programs, music, video, etc.). It will open (lights up) and close, then seems to try to read the disc (it lights up). BUT then the green light stops flashing and...NOTHING...until you eject the disc again.

How do I remove write protection from a DVD-RW?


Your M35X-S1143 model - assuming it still has the stock drive - has an DVD / CD-RW optical drive - i.e. it will write only to CD's but not DVD's. If you try to burn a DVD, it'll tell you that the disc is write protected (when in fact, the drive doesn't even know how to write to a DVD disc.); if you go ahead and burn a CD, you will not encounter the write protection warnings.

Hi Makman,

Please follow the below steps,

  1. Make sure there is no loose connection in the cable of the DVD RAM drive , try changing the slot if that is possible.
  2. Secondly , make sure you have a lens cleaner so that you can clean the lens and then check if things work fine.
  3. If the problem persists , the better option would be to get it checked via a external drive connector and see if it works fine or check it at your friend's PC and see the results,
  4. If then the problem persists, then it's surely an indication that the drive will die soon and will not be able to read anything or even probably be detected.

Hope this helps..:) Your feedback would be appreciated.

D drive will not load some disc programs in to the computer


If you are saying D drive is your CD/VDVD drive? If you are installing from CD/DVD drive then suddenly stop the installation/setup/loading you must check your disc drive. To check your cd/dvd drive insert a cd or dvd cleaner and start cleaning most of the cleaner has a movie inside of the disc and run for about 10 minutes. Then try again installing/setup/loading the program to your computer. If its still the same, replace your CD/DVD drive with a new cd/dvd drive because your cd/dvd drive is need to be replace. Have a nice day

You may have to delete the device in the "device manager" and reinstall it with the laptop restore disk or download the latest drivers from the Toshiba site for laptops.
Also this DVD-RW may not like +R disks or +/_ Disk . It may only like -R disk.

Cant play DVD ROMs


you can try uninstalling the drive, by going to my computer, right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look down the list for cd/dvd drives, click on '+' sign and right click on your drive make and select uninstal. Restart pc and your drive will be reinstalled automatically again. If you have a cd cleaner disc run that also. Try to run the game again, although it may still not work as the drives laser seems to be out of line or simply run it's life, and a new drive is the only answer i'm afraid.
