How to remove the dvd burner on laptop


There is one screw on the bottom that must be removed to take the DVD combo drive out. When I remove the DVD combo drive, I like to remove the Hard Drive first so that I can push on the back of the drive with a small screw driver through the hard drive bay and not pull on the face plate. You can also open the drive first before turning it off or use that small hole on the front of the faceplate to open it when turned off...then you can pull on the side rails of the drive to get it to come out.

My IBM R51 laptop can't read any other cd/vcd


Hello,

its either its a lens problem or that was how the CD/DVD Drive was made.

There are some drives that doesn't play white face discs, that is, they select disc and don't play all CD's, so maybe yours fall under this category.

How long have you been using your laptop and has it ever played Cd/Vcd's before?

If it plays them before, then it means your drive's lens is weak, but if it has never played them before, then it means that's how the player was made.

Which ever way, you still have an option of replacing the drive if you wish.

Take care.

DVD drive is not working


Is it really DVD? have you check the little label in the Drive? sometime it says CD Combo as a reader and writer only not DVD Combo.

If it say's DVD if you just bought it try and have it check from the retailer if theres a warranty

How do I install aDVD combo in Toshiba 2410-S206?


Pretty simple operation.

On the bottom of the laptop, there is only one screw that holds the module in place. Remove the correct screw, and pull out the old cd/rom. Now you might have to remove any mounting hardware that is on the old cd, and install it on the new dvd combo. Slip it back in the slot, replace the screw, and you are ready to rock and roll.

Now that was easy, wasn't it?

I HAVE A IBM THINKPAD T 30


Thinkpad T30 are usually supplied with the following optical drives, CD ROM, CD R/W, and Combo DVD ROM with CD R/W.
You most likely have the Combo drive, therefore you can play DVD and CD disks plus burning music and data onto CD-R and CD+R discs.
You need CD burning software such as Roxio Easy CD Creator or Nero. Both these programs are excellent and easy to use.

DVD-RW IBM A31 Thinkpad problem


I take it you are trying to "send to" files to the DVD-RW?You can't burn a DVD just with windows XP . It only supports CDRW drives.

Get commercial software like Roxio or Nero, or download a free CD burning program like this one:

DVD


Hi,
I don't mean to disagree with my associate, but DVD players for R series (or T, A, etc) can be found for less than 20.00 US (Ebay is a good example)
For that matter, we've got at least a dozen at our shop which we sell for 25.00
Installation is very simple as well, just pop the old drive out, put the new drive in.
Good luck
