I've got a Toshiba RD-XV47KB hard drive, DVD and VCR combination machine.
The hard drive and VHS parts are fine but the DVD player is not working.
There's several items on the hard drive I need to copy over before I throw the damn thing in the bin but the DVD player won't even format a blank disc.
Is there an alternative way of recording material off the hard drive - by using a laptop, for example?
The player has just been in for repair for a separate problem and that cost me 200 so I'm keen to avoid taking it back in if possible. I think the DVD issue is terminal.
All help gratefully received.

You can remove the Hdd and slave it to another PC, use an external housing or use a Hdd to USB adapter to retrieve info from the drive.

All PC's are not the same. Posting your PC specs will help us to assist you quicker and effectively.

FN key not working for Toshiba L355d
