    Thanks sublimation,



    I went to the Packard Bell website where I found instructions on removing the front cover....two plastic clips near the bottom accessed from inside the case beside the hard drives.

    It would be helpful to know which Packard Bell computer you have as this isn't a, "one size fits all" situation.

Check the back of the PC case, There maybe a screw that needs to be removed in order to open the side panel. Another thing could be that there is some kind of sliding lock, that is holding the panel in place. Keep playing around in the back of the case, most likely you'll find it within a few minutes.

Do I need sata or eide for internal dvd writer on HP a1330n?


This model HP has a SATA disk controller.
You need a SATA DVD writer.
If you are not sure, when you remove the faulty DVD writer, take it with you when you go to purchase a nre DVD writer, make sure the new DVD writer has the same connectors as the faulty DVD writer.

How can i make a cd on my packard bell laptop, model number MS2266, does it have a cd rw drive


This is a "recent" laptop, e.g., 3GB of RAM, and 500GB disk-drive.
So, it's reasonable to assume that it contains a CD/DVD reader/writer.

To write a file to a CD-recordable disk, click with the SECOND (usually the RIGHT) mouse-button on the icon for the file, and point at "Send To", and click on the icon for the CD/DVD drive.

A dialogue-window will open, allowing you to add other files to a menu of files to be written.
Work from that point.

The DVD writer doesn't recognize that there is a


Most DVD drives are also CD drives, and it sounds like the DVD part is broken, you need to replace the DVD drive, this is done simply by buying a new one, I recommend Newegg.com ( if your unsure search exactly what you already have) then opening your case (tower) and just unplugging old one and plugging new one in, it really is very doable for even a novice.

Packard Bell Easynote E2316, DVD drive. My DVD drive will allow me to write to DVD+R related media, but does not write to DVD-R media. Usually I am pretty good with finding out the reasons why, but...


Sometimes, the specific brand and manufacturer of the media is an issue, not the DVD+R or DVD-R style.

A lot of the time, a firmware update to the DVD drive allows the DVD writer to work with a broader range of blank media.

Since this model is so old, Packard Bell does not offer firmware updates. If you can identify the manufacturer and model of the DVD drive in the laptop, you may be able to locate a third party firmware installer at places like www.rpc1.org.

Dvd writer for dell gx270 mini tower


If you can think and look logically, you will be able to replace your current drive with a standard notebook drive, mostly called slimline.
open the case by pressing the two knobs at the side and lift it upwards. The unit clicks out easily, the removal of the flat cable and power connector needs a bit of patience, and you have to unscrew the drive from the bracket after that. I think you can get a drive for some $50,-5015338.jpg
