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.

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.

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.

I think you will find a pin hole in the cd cover near the button. Unfold a paper clip and insert it in the hole and that should manually eject the tray. If that is no good then the drive needs to be removed and opened to get to the label and disk.

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.

  1. Unfold the paperclip and make it as straight as possible.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Gently pull the drawer until it's fully retracted. Be careful not to pull too far.
  5. Remove your disc from the drive.
  6. 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.

you are here because Toshiba's online help is gone. sure.
they tell you there to go to tomshardware and as there.
no PC stated at all model name and numbers..
what if kids set the password, playing with it.
remove the battery from the PC, big one
no AC pack.
push power button for 3 times for 10 seconds each.
wait,5min. hands off PC.
now put the AC pack back.
if the PW is still set, then next replace the coin cell battery inside.
on some Toshiba (none stated) that battery is a rechargeable and if bad, very hard to fix.
let the PC run on AC power only for 24hours in the hope that odd duck battery deep inside recharges, leave the big battery out for all tests, (until PC runs ok again on AC power)

never post about a PC unless, the full model # and name is told
example 1(random)

Sounds like your hard disk drive has died.
Fit a new SSD (solid state drive)
Did you make a boot disk / thumb drive like Toshiba recommends?
After you fit the new SSD run the boot disk.
No boot disk you will an O.S. to load onto you computer.

To run the boot disk you have to get into setup, press F2 when the computer starts.
Look for the boot disk options, if you are using Thumb Drive switch the boot option to USB.
If you are using a CD switch the boot option to CD.
Close the setup and reboot...
The boot disk will set up the Operating System with the usual questions.

Hope this helps

Theexperiencethat I forgot windows password happened to me a few weeks ago. My friendAcheson who is an IT engineer recommended me to take use of Windows PasswordReset, which is very smart and just take me a shorttime to reset a newly password.
I think this windows password reset tool can help you too.
