Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A205-S4707 Notebook ?

Toshiba satellite A205 DVD player partially Inop

\015 Some real DVDs (not cheap fakes from other countries) will not play in my Toshiba satellite A205. The disk runs and spins a little longer and then does not even recognize that a disk is int he drive. The DVD plays in other DVD and COmputer DVD players (in fact I have had some disk sets play only one of two, etc.). What can be the problem (outside of something wrong withthe disk itself-which I do not think is the case across the board)?\015

Answers :

The disk drive could be going bad, or the lens may be dirty.

Try getting a dvd lens cleaning kit if you don't already have one, and run that. Make sure to read all the instructions that come with the cleaning kit.
