Question about Computers & Internet
I am looking for step by step instructions on removing an old cd drive and replacing it with a dvd drive I have purchased.
Here's a photographic step by step instruction set on how to get to the CDROM drive. There are also some text with each picture that should give you enough info to get it replaced. Good luck! http://wireball.com/images/armada_gallery/index.html

As the article on wireball.com mentions, the replacement drive has to be internally set to "slave". Most new, replacement DVD drives for sale are set to "master" and won't work in the 1750. I successfully installed a Teac "dv-w22e" dvd-rw in my son's 1750. While the faceplate isn't a perfect match, these are a lot, lot cheaper than the OEM dvd-rom drives that were originally offered for the 1750. The original drive has an adapter screwed to the back of it that comes off and mounts on the replacement.
