Cd's dont load and play. dvd's do load and play
\015 I have a toshiba satelite pro laptop with a dvd/cd player. It will play dvd's but not cd's or application cd's. Toshiba is recommending to replace it. Is there anything else I can try? It is only 3 weeks old.\015
Thats odd, should still be under warranty, if they offer to replace it for free then go for it, because if it read dvd's and not cd's then I agree its the unit
