Toshiba SD-M1202 Schematic

Hello, I'm trying to make something out of an old DVD-ROM drive, a Toshiba SD-M1202, and I need the electrical schematics. I have tried most of the usual web sites to no avail. This is just a hobby project. If you can point me in the right direction or provide me with the schematics it would be greatly appreciated. Best Regards, Paul Hoffman

You may be out of luck As most toshiba drives are made by a differant division of toshiba then what the computers are and most of these drives come as a whole part and the computer divsion at Tosiba dosent even have the schematics for them as like I say they dont fix them they simply replace them as a part in whole. All differant drives will have the same pinout as the drives are interchangable. But before I spent alot of time experimenting I would make sure the drive works in a puter. Good Luck

I have a toshiba laptop my cd dvd burner gets this message when i try to burn error 380381-26-2a031000

Hello Gary, hi, that error means failure of the burner software ROM (corrupted), you have to return the laptop back to the manufacturer for reprogramming, you can also get a surplus DVD drive. Or buy a USB external DVD drive, this is a better alternative.

Shows all blank cd and dvd's having 0mb available

Ya'... bummer.

Reads like your Drive is toast. Also it appears that yours is a older "IDE" drive and that makes it somewhat exotic due to it's age, connector and color (white as shown).

Have you considered a EXTERNAL USB DVD Burner?
They are VERY reasonable and portable too! Yep... many choices under $15

BE CAREFUL here... some of these external drives need TWO USB ports to work... not nice.

There are also adapters available too converting SATA to IDE, but then you still need to buy the SATA drive... argggg,


After I reinstalled my pc, the toshiba dvd-rom (sd-c2502) only plays cds, not dvds.

Try re-installing your the driver for your dvd rom. Then try to put different dvds and check if it can read from your drive. If problem remains, I suspected it's your dvd rom is faulty

My dvd-rom sd r-2002 di sabled

try going to the device manager and enabling it there.
Start, control panel, system,device manager, select hardware and then right click on the dvd rom drive, click properties and you will be able to enable it from there.
