can you help me with
One solution would be to go to the manufacturers site and make sure you have the latest firmware update. If your floppy doesn't work, then apparently you are aware of this, and your floppy drive is defective, correct? Moving on then, you can also use a flash drive which are pretty inexpensive right now. It will plug right into your USB port. Another means of getting it into your laptop is to send it to yourself email. Now, if you cannot get passed the need for this to on floppy, then you simply need to get a new floppy drive.
Now, assuming you do indeed have the latest firmware loaded, the problem is the fact of this drive being a bit inferior. It is a dust magnet. Installed in a laptop, it picks up any and every bit of dust that so happens to venture thru.
Solution :. I took the DVD/CD-Rom out, removed the alluminium plate that is held on with 3 little screws and inspected it. I found alittle dust on the DIVERTER(?) mirror/lens. I blew if off, cleaned the primary lens. I reassembled it, put it back in the laptop and now it works fine on ALL CD's. BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN CLEANING THE PRIMARY LENS. BE VERY GENTLE. If this fixes your problem and if you can Please pass this on. It saved me ALOT of money. Almost forgot, the ERROR Message that I would get, before I fixed it was "WINDOWS CANNOT READ FROM DISK.THE DISK MIGHT BE CORRUPTED OR IT COULD BE USING A FORMAT THAT IS NOT COMPATABLE WITH WINDOWS. I hope this fixed your problem.
Same problem (dvd drive deceased, not functioning at all)
You were not at all clear here as to what your specific problem is. If it is the same as the majority reported for model SD-C2502, then you're having a problem with the drive not being able to see data disks, dvd disks, or both. One solution would be to go to the manufacturers site and make sure you have the latest firmware update. Now, assuming you have it, the problem is the fact of this drive being a bit inferior. It is a dust magnet. Installed in a laptop, it picks up any and every bit of dust that so happens to venture thru.
Solution The problem I had was that my DVD/CD-ROM, a SD-C2502,
would only play DVD's, same as yours. Data disks and Audio disks
would not be recognized by Windows. I took the DVD/CD-Rom out, removed the alluminium plate that is held on with 3 little screws and inspected it. I found alittle dust on the DIVERTER(?) mirror/lens. I blew if off, cleaned the primary lens. I reassembled it, put it back in the laptop and now it works fine on ALL CD's. BE VERY CAREFUL WHEN CLEANING THE PRIMARY LENS. BE VERY GENTLE.

Does the toshiba sd 2502 , can it burn cds
It is a DVD ROM drive which stands for DVD Read Only Memory. In other words, this drive is meant to only PLAY DVDs and CDs but NOT save data to them.
To burn CDs you need a CD burner. Burners are of 3 types:
CD writer only burns and reads CDs.
Combo drive reads CDs and DVDs but only burns CDs.
Super drive burns and reads from CDs and DVDs.
As you go higher in functionality, the price also increases. Check your needs before you plan to buy one. Also compare prices of all the drives. Note: burn-able media costs are separate.
Cant open dvd drawer
Sometimes DVD player drawers get stuck closed because the disc inside isn't seated properly. At other times the player may have another problem. The first step in discovering if it is the disc or another issue is to remove the disc. Most DVD players have a secret eject button. It allows you to open the drawer when a disc gets stuck and cannot be ejected normally.
For this you'll need a standard size paperclip.
- Unfold the paperclip and make it as straight as possible.
- Look closely at your DVD player . Push the tip the paper clip into the small hole on the tray cover on the front of the Toshiba. The hole is on the right side of the cover.
- Press inward gently with the paperclip until you feel a slight resistance, then continue pushing to engage the internal eject button. The tray should pop open partway.
- Gently pull the drawer until it's fully retracted. Be careful not to pull too far.
- Remove your disc from the drive.
- Before you reinsert another disc, use the remote and/or buttons on the player to close the door, and reopen it. You can also press carefully with your fingers. If you cannot open/close the drawer normally at this point, do not put in a new disc until you have repaired the problem.

What happened when Toshiba laptop shows alt+ctrl+del?
More commonly called 'control alt delete' or the 'three finger salute' it has two purposes. On a computer that is running, it brings up Task Manager and other instant settings like Switch User, or log Out. On a computer that is frozen, unresponsive, it does a hard rest and forces the computer to reboot.

My toshiba laptop displays an expected error occured. Error Code 0xc0000034 during booting window

3. Type the following command to rebuild the BCD file: "bootrec /rebuildbcd".
4. Press Enter and follow the on-screen instructions.
Note: If these mentioned steps do not resolve the issue, you may need to perform a repair install or a clean install of Windows.

3Com Megahertz 3CXEM566 B 10 Mbps LAN+56K Modem PC Card Driver For Windows 98SE
Try this link...I just confirmed that it does exist.
If you have any issues, Try using a Microsoft or a 3Com universal driver.
Last but not least, simply go on eBay for a vintage LAN card...that includes a driver CD that runs on Windows 98SE.
If you need further assistance, just reply after trying those possibilities.
I'm "A+" Industry Certified PC Repair Tech. If you can't find one in a box with driver disc, maybe I have some LAN cards.
Does this need an ISA or PCI slot?
