    Hi,

    I have a tx2510 and when I try to put in a DVD it doesnt read it and if I click it to explore it it just spits it out and says...

    Insert Disk into Drive E:

    Can anyone help me with this?

    I dunno if this might be helpful, but I removed alot of bloatware at the beginning, could I have removed a critical piece of software by accident?

    sounds like your drive might be going bad, the drive doesn't need anymore software other than the operating system to read a disk.

    Either the disks you are using are bad, or the drive itself is going bad.

    When I check it in device manager it says it's working properly.

    I bought it only a week ago, and it read the disk that I had office 2007 on, I dunno why it won't read this dvd I put in there.

    Ok, I disabled and reenabled the device and rebooted the computer and it now detects the DVD...

    Know why it might have not read it before?

    can't think of anything off the bat, but maybe there was a conflict w/ the dvd drive.

    oh oh i've got one! I ran into this at my old computer job. Make sure the DVD drive is plugged in higher and has a higher drive letter than any cd drives.

    Well it's just one internal DVD/CDRom drive so, nothing else it could be "higher than".

    This happened on my old toshiba satellite p100. I ended up reinstalling the OS because the drive just stopped recognizing as a last resort. I thought it was failing but to this day it still works.
