Most notebook optical drives are not too bad, usually only 1 or 2 screws hold the optical drive in from the bottom. Remove the screws, pop out the drive and pop in the new one. For the drive, try here:

SOURCE: replacing a DVD ROM with a DVD RW in a toshiba satellite L25-S119

Because it is a toshiba laptop, you will need to buy a model-specific dvd drive for your laptop direct from toshiba, or at least from an authorized toshiba reseller. This is not something you would get from your local best buy.

You want something like this:

Order online, or select "Locate Dealer" and find one in your area.

My suggestion is to call up a dealer and verify that this model is compatible with your laptop, because yours is on the older side the slim select bays may be a little too small.

SOURCE: replace cd rom with a dvd+rw cd rom in a toshiba satellite

You should be able to, there is usually only one screw holding the drive in, if you hold the replacement up to where the instlled one is, you should see the approximate location of the screw ( may be under another panel, Memory,hard drive etc.., the drive will just slide out, then make sure the connectors are the same, and swap or place the mounting bracket on the new one, and slide it back in place, replacing any screws removed

Upgrade CD/DVD ROM to CD-RW/DVD ROM


I just replaced my original CD/DVD ROM with a Toshiba SD-R2512 CD-RW/DVD ROM in my 1805-S253 running Windows ME. I used "Roxio Easy CD Creator" for writing to CD's. Everything was "plug'n'play" except the bezel that came with the new drive had to be swapped out. Windows ME recognized the new drive immediately and I didn't have to load any new drivers. This upgrade will probably work on other 1800 or 1805 Satellite series machines.

Acer aspire desktop cd rom will not open. When button is pressed, a nois can be heard but tray does not open.


It must be hardware problem with the CD rom. There are few gears inside the unit with some plastic levers that regulate opening and closing of the Tray. If the problem persists, you will need to repair or replace the CD rom. In the meantime, as a temporary solution, straighten a paper clip (a a long needle), push in through the tiny hole just below the tray while you press the eject (Open) button. You'll need to press inside the pin/clip with possible force and it will automatically eject out. Push in the pin/needle straight, you don't need to find anything inside the hole, just push it straight in.

How do i remove the cd/dvd drive for my acer3003lc so that a can replace it


You can use the Toshiba Satellite 5205 guide for removing and replacing the DVD/CD-ROM drive or the keyboard. On this model you have to remove the keyboard in order to remove and replace the DVD/CD-ROM drive because the optical drive securing screw is located under the keyboard. Always start laptop disassembly with removing the battery or you can damage the system board if you accidentally touch it with a screwdriver and shorten traces. Removing the keyboard strip is not very difficult, use your fingers to release the plastic latches. If you want to replace the keyboard, do not forget to unlock the connector on the system boar before you pull the cable.

for the acer 3000
1. At the back of the laptop remove the three screws on the support posts for the screen
2. Open the laptop fully and lift the plastic panel that has the power button.
3. Remove the 2 screws holding the keyboard in place
4. Carefully slide the keyboard towards the monitor and lift.
5. To the left of the keyboard ribbon cable is the screw that's been causing all this grief.
6. Remove, slide out optical drive, reassemble.

Cd rom drive door


Best guess is that a small plastic catch broke. My cousin has similar doors on his CD trays. I personally would take the doors off. As far as repair, again best guess without seeing it, is that you'll need a new door panel.

SGI O2 CD-ROM drive tray repeatedly opens


I am having the same problem. I haven't resolved it entirely, but at least I managed to get it working again by the following steps.

First, disassemble the part of the computer chassis around the CD-ROM drive. Follow the instructions for "replacing the CD-ROM drive" in the SGI 02 hardware maintenance manual. It can be done in 10 minutes with a screwdriver.

After you have gained access to the CD-ROM drive itself, take off the top metal cover. Then you will be able to see the tray and the white gears underneath.

In my case, the problem seems to be caused by some misalignment between some wire springs and the white gears. Note when the CD tray closes, the manual eject button (a black plastic rod on the right) should stick out, and the white piece of plastic with a triangular end on the left should push against the front of the CD tray.

Somehow, the gears failed to push the white plastic piece all the way to the edge of the tray, and the CD-ROM drive thinks the tray wasn't fully-closed, and ejects the disc.

To force the drive to read the disc, pull the white plastic piece on the left with the triangular end towards the edge of the tray. (Pull it towards you if you are facing the front of the drive.) You might need to use some force, but I can get the drive to work this way, even though it still "sticks open" half the time.

Good luck, and if you happen to find a better solution, I look forward to hearing it.
