Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. Since the Drive is detected by the computer andt he light indicates that it is still receiving power it means that it is functional however if all types of CDs or DVDs can't be read it means that the LASER of the CD/DVD drive is bad. It usually happens to CD/DVD rom due to wear and tear. This is not a quick fix since this is a hardware issue. You can check if it still has a warranty with Toshiba so that they can replace the Optical Drive Free of charge if not then you need to purchase one.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

Your choices are to replace the drive or purchase an external DVD drive.

If your laptop appears to boot up and the hard disk LEDflashes, then the problem is probably a back light fault. This can be a faultyinverter or a faulty CCFL lamp.

Toshiba Satellite L455-S5000 turns on but screen is black


Try external monitor, if it works then more likley the backlight inverter or the lamp is bad.
see www.insidemylaptop.com for example.

Cd drive led light flashes orange four to five times then stops


Given all the things that you ahev done, clean the drive with a CD/DVD cleaner and / or air duster. Check the device is enabled in Device Manager and it shows no errors. If it does then read the explanation. If not and it looks OK you will most likely need a new drive!

Dvd drive WILL NOT read burnt dvd's or CD's


The problem occurs mostly when your drive is dying. I had the same problem with my laptop writer recently after which it completely stopped writing discs. Contact your support. Sometimes they would ask you to remove the upper and lower filters of an entry in the registry which would sometimes resolve the problem.

Can play cd's but not dvd's, just a rythmic wirring sound and green activity light


Hey,

just looking at the specifications, it should work with All CD's and Read Normal DVD discs, the movies that you can rent and buy from any store but it appears its a combo drive (Cd burner, and a DvD reader) It will only read DVD-rom and maybe few other things but it wont play any r or rw dvd's. It might also read already burned dvd r and rw discs but it wont read a empty one.

if it won't read any dvd's it could be a dirty lens. here's a video on the cleaning, its annoyingly loud but shows how to clean the lens with rubbing alcohol.

may want to turn the volume down in advance:

its for a ps2 but the drive is basically the same, and you would clean the lens in the same way.

let me know how that goes.
Thanks,
Ekse

My dual layer DVD burner wont read any media


When was the last time you cleaned the dust out of the laser head? Or your PC, for that matter? Just asking.

There are cleaner disks that work sometimes, or you can go in with a cleaner foam swab with a little alcohol on it. Worth a try.
