Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook
Anybody know how to do this. I can't find the magic screw that is holding the thing in.
The standard drive in the 2310 seems to be a Matshita U3-840D, which is a basically a piece of rubbish. I did what paella recommended, and the drive pulled out without much trouble, but has a small plastic flap attachment at the back which is evidentally a panel for the screw which holds the drive in place (this was split when I pulled out the drive... which makes me wonder whether a replacement will be all that easy to push in without opening up the entire unit and removing, then replacing, the existing screw. I'd recommend opening the laptop first if possible, and removing the screw at the back of the drive which keeps it in place before pulling it out.

I'm not an expert on Acer, but I can tell you that *most* CD/DVD drives just "pull" out with a little bit of oomph applied. It's just a plastic connector on the other end of the drive that connects to the motherboard inside.
Eject the drive tray, and *GENTLY* pull out with a slight bit of pressure. If you feel your muscles tensing up, you are pulling too hard and perhaps there is a hidden screw - generally, though, if there is a screw, it's in plain sight on the bottom of the case (and obviously should be removed first!)
Hope this helps - remember to rate! :)
