Changing the DVD player in a Toshiba P205

\015 Can someone tell me how to change my DVD player in my Toshiba P205 Laptop.\015

Answers :

Usually with laptops, there's a single screw which holds the drive in place; it is meant to be interchangeable. For your particular model, check here:

\015\012To locate the screw in question: it should be approximately 5 inches in from the side of the laptop, and roughly in the center of the width of the drive itself. It won't hurt to unscrew a few screws in that area underneath, you'll eventually get the right one, and the laptop should be fine as long as you only remove a few and remember to put them back afterwards.

\015\012Also, be aware that your optical drive may or may not have an adapter screwed onto the connector end, to make the universal slimline drive connector match your laptop's proprietary IDE connector. This piece, if present, should be removed and attached to the new optical drive you plan on putting in.

I bought a Toshiba Satellite A300 laptop in Edmonton Canada in April but I live in Dundee Scotland and I keep getting the message 'You are on Region 1, change to Region 2 or 4'. But when I go to Regional Settings there are no Region numbers, only countries. I have tried Uk and Canada but no joy. How can I run DVDs on my laptop in Scotland? Thanks, Donald

When I clicked on the Toshiba DVD player a little whirring later and the program open and began showing the menues of the DVD. Now it just whirrs and zips and clickes and nothing. Some opf my disks still play. At one time they all played
