Where to find a replacement copy of the file.

On Toshiba laptops. Lets you make your CD/DVD drive more quiet than usual.
It is intended to deliberately slow down a CD or DVD if it is out of balance and noisy/vibrating while playing. I believe you have to turn it on manually from the system tray when you detect this problem. But it might do so automatically. I would remove it from the startup and reactivate it only if you frequently encounter the problem it is designed to address

Best practices for resolving TOSCDSPD issues

A clean and tidy computer is the key requirement for avoiding problems with TOSCDSPD. This means running a scan for malware, cleaning your hard drive using 1cleanmgr and 2sfc /scannow, 3uninstalling programs that you no longer need, checking for Autostart programs (using 4msconfig) and enabling Windows' 5Automatic Update. Always remember to perform periodic backups, or at least to set restore points.

Should you experience an actual problem, try to recall the last thing you did, or the last thing you installed before the problem appeared for the first time. Use the 6resmon command to identify the processes that are causing your problem. Even for serious problems, rather than reinstalling Windows, you are better off repairing of your installation or, for Windows 8 and later versions, executing the 7DISM.exe /Online /Cleanup-image /Restorehealth command.
