Is it possible to post the info from the sticker/drive label here?
No, I would have to open it completely and I am not that good with laptops.
Also, how is the drive seen in the BIOS and also in the devicemanager?
In BIOS here is my DRIVES I/O information:
HDD = Primary IDE(1F0H/IRQ14)CD-ROM = Secondary IDE(170H/IRQ15)
There is no more info on this in BIOS.
In device manager:DVD/CD-ROM Drives: TOSHIBA DVD-ROM SD-C2612
Have you tried to clean the drive yet?
Yes I did. No help.
What exact media have you tried with? CD-R, CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-R ...etc. What content is on them?
I have tried CD and DVD.
Content was various data.
