: I had the same problem with my Compaq Presario 1210US Laptop running Windows XP SP2. Here is the error message I received from my Toshiba SD-C2502 DVD-ROM: “Windows cannot read from this disk. The disk might be corrupted, or it could be using a format that is not compatible with windows.”

: This problem (Toshiba SD-C2502) turned out to be a software (or firmware?) problem for me. If you're running Windows XP; try deleting the folder CPQDRV in your D:\ hard drive (SYSTEM_SAV). If it says it is too large for RECYCLE, then select 'YES' to permanently clear. Then do a System restore to the last time you feel that your CD/DVD-rom was working. Do it more than once if necessary. Pay attention to the above folder.
: This should give you something to do, instead of going crazy with this problem like I did.
: This got my CDs working & my computer recognizing my E:\ drive. I think the problem has to do with Windows Update, as Toshiba uses native drivers. If you get your CD-ROM working, turn off windows update, until you can screen its affects on your computer.
