My dvd rom works fine usually and i'm able to play dvds on it
but recently i was trying to import a scratched cd onto iTunes and it started making noises and wouldn't upload
now whenever i try to play a dvd the dvd works fine, but the sound is messed up and the movie plays reaally slow. so im guessing the scratched cd messed up my dvd rom...
i know that there's nothing wrong with the sound system because if i play anything from iTunes or the internet, the sound is fine. and this is happening to all the dvds im putting in...
the dvd rom doesnt look scratched or dirty..but i'm guessing something's wrong..help!

Try to upgrade the driver for the DVD player. This is done in the Device Manager. Upgrade or reinstall the software used to play the DVD. One of the best players for DVD and all sorts of other media is the VLC player - a free download.
Do follow steps, 1) change your DVD disk :- if it's work, don't worry about the driver. 2) go to Device Manager & check the DVD/CD ROM driver's property, check weather it has been disabled. 3) change your OS or Upgrade current OS 4) if above steps are not worked, then you have to bring your laptop to a service provider...
if you are in warranty period don't remove any parts of it, they will replaced a another DVD driver
You need to update the dvd softwear. Check the default settings for playback of media,if it is set to windows media it won't work if you hav'nt installed the correct updates. Choose the Toshiba dvd player as the default player and it should work. If you prefer windows media then you can get the updated codecs from ' free-codecs.com ' Easier still,try uninstalling your windows media player and installing windows media 11, this will usually resolve the problem.
It sounds like the drive itself is faulty. Since you've reformatted, it obviously isn't a software problem.
CDs and DVDs are read by two different lasers so its not uncommon for one disc not to be read yet the other is just fine which seems to be the case.
A new one can be purchased for under $40.
