Other programs by TOSHIBA



This program provides support for the installed DVD player built into the laptop. Its drivers are designed to work with the installed Microsoft Windows OS version. In most cases this software does not need to be installed as Windows has built in generic drivers to connect to the installed DVD drive.


It is bundled and preinstalled with various Toshiba computers. The most used version is, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. Upon installation, it defines an auto-start registry entry which allows the program run on each boot for the user which installed it. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The main program executable is toshddvd.exe. The software installer includes 47 files and is usually about 22.99 MB (24,110,258 bytes).

TOSHIBA DVD PLAYER is pre-installed on the PC

Such software is installed by the manufacture when delivering the PC to the end user. Some pre-installed programs are considered bloatware as they are simply limited function trials, while others are required for proper PC operation.
Note: This program has often been considered as bloatware by some users as it is bundled on various manufacturer's new PCs. (Because this might be considered bloatware does not mean the software is bad or harmful, if you use it regularly its worthwhile to have. However, bloatware typically means the program is optional and was simply pre-installed but is not required and can be removed.) Some quick tips to be aware of:
  • It is usually licensed for use only on the Toshiba PC on which it was pre-installed.
  • It sometimes difficult for users to remove via the 'Uninstall a Program' feature in Windows.
