My lg cd rw/dvd light is glowing .but it is not opening.even though i opened it,it is not reading either dvd or cd.


Open it and try to clean it, may be a dirty laser as to why it is not reading, or something faulty with the dive internal mechanism. I would also try a different power connector and data port.

I put the cd rom into the drive and nothing happens. I go to click on the icon under my computer and it causes the window not to respond.


Confirm that the CD drive is not a CD-ROM dive and the CD you are trying to open is is not a DVD. CD-ROM drive wil not open a DVD ROM and in some cases will cause the system to stop responding if youtry to run it.

The cd drive will NOT work but DVD works fine


This is the first symptom of a DVD/CD drive going bad. Usually the DVD or the CD laser goes first making it only work with one or the other. Eventually the DVD will go to but you might get it to last. You can either take it into an Authorize Service Provider or look for third party drives on the internet. Expect to pay about $100 if you go to an ASP but you could find one online and install it yourself for about $50. There is only one screw holding it in and an easy bracket to switchover to the new drive. The faceplate won't line up nicely like the original most likely if you go third party. Of course if your under warranty still then call 1-800-457-7777 or look up your closest "Authorize Service Provider" at support.toshiba.com and get it fixed before your warranty expires.

How do I open a cd to transfer it to my pc? I have my resume on a cd that someone made for me using his laptop, When I go to My Computer, there isnt anything that shows that it is recognizing the cd drive,...


Put a store purchased CD or dvd in the drive and see if it is seen by computer.
If so, remove it and place your cd in the drive.
If you get a message, format not recog., find out what format or was used to copy cd.
If you are useing VISTA and wish to view a doc. made on a win98 machine, you will have problems.

If the cd/dvd drive is not seen under mycomputer, you may have a damaged drive or may need to reconfigure it to be seen by your computer.
Check your jumper settings on the drive.
But first try a new disk and see what comes up.

Installed Toshiba Samsung CD-RW/DVD Drive does not work


You will have to install the drivers that came with the drive. If you don't have the CD that came with it to install the drivers, you will have to search the Toshiba site for the specific model number of the drive. You should be able to download and install the drivers from their website. Hope this helps.

CD/DVD drive stopped working gradually


  1. Ensure the Drive is seen in MY Computer
  2. Try removing the upper and lower filters per this article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/314060
If the drive is seen in BIOS and in MY COMPUTER, but will not read any media after running the microsoft fix and rebooting, then replace the drive.

My cd/dvd opens then closes


> I've already replaced it once

Well, I've seen CD-drives that would re-open, when you try to close them -- it is _falsely_ detecting a "jam" as the tray is closing, and then just re-opens the tray, rather than "forcing" itself to close.

Replacing the CD-drive is the only way to fix that type of "false-positive" jam-detection conditions.

But, since you've done that, either you were unlucky-enough that the replacement drive was also "defective", or, you have a computer-virus on your computer that is maliciously issuing commands to the CD to "open-the-tray".
