Comment by Notrek, posted on Mar 02, 2008 Searched all over the net and reinstalled rom driver which turned out to be the same as original anyway. DVD-r and prerecorded dvds work fine but any kind of cd doesn't seem to read and I get the same error as the other guys here where it says the cd is corrupt etc but definately nothing wrong with disks - all ok in other machines. Despite DVD movies running fine Audio CDs dont play even with windows media player.
System is a second hand IBM Thinkpad T21 with Toshiba SD C2512 DVD Drive. Running Win XP.

Love your advice

Thanks Geoff

    I have the same problem under the same circumstances.

    A packaged DVD movie -- OKAY !



    Copied DVD Movie or any CD is not even recognized.

I upgraded to xp and since then my sd c2512 drive will not play dvd's and says there is no dvd software. Also I dont have the original boot disk, do I need to buy dvd software? or is there a download fix...


Did you buy this item as a notebook part, or did you buy another unit such as an external drive and take the drive out of it? If you took the drive out of another item, then you are going to have problems with the on board firmware. Toshiba is a nightmare for doing this.

Also some Toshiba computers do not allow you to upgrade the drive, even with a new Toshiba drive. I learnt this the hard way many years ago. At that time my new Toshiba Notebook would not recognize the New Toshiba DVD Drive, but my decade old Gateway Notebook did. I contacted Toshiba and they said they Firmware lockout new upgrades to encourage people to buy new computers.

DVd-rom replaced but not working properly


check the copyright settings on it, most dvd's have that so people don't bootleg it and re-sell it, check to see if there is any scratches on it, check for dirt, or take it to customer support and get a new one

My toshiba satellite won't read cds. every once in a while it will but other times it wont.


Assuming no dirt on the laser lens which you can clean with a laser lens cleaner http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=9302097&st=cd+cleaner&type=product&id=1218081366389 .Recommend saving up for a replacement CD Drive. My Toshiba Satellite did that for about a year before the drive gave out completely. Found a replacement on ebay for around $25 dollars.

Having a trouble with my DVD-ROM - IBM ThinkPad T42


Internal the pickup assy. (the laser) there are three components that read the discs, one for DVD one for CD and one for the DVD-ROM its likely that the DVD-ROM laser has gone out. Take the drive out and get the part number and look it up online on ebay or the like :-)
