Flip pc over. There will be one screw not part of a plate. About an inch in front of the battery and about 4 inches from where you would put in a DVD. Only one screw holds the DVD in. Unscrew it and gently slide the optical drive out. If the optical drive does not move with some gentle prying with finger nails or a plastic tool, you did not loosen the correct screw.

Well i recently did the windows updates and now my


I've had the same problem, but due to my video configuration I don't get a display until after I load Windows and this fix requires a bootable floppy or usb drive, so I haven't actually tried it yet. This link gets you the download for the firmware update to the optical drive, and I think it will create a bootable floppy or flash drive when you run the app. There's a 'View Directions' link right above the link to the downloadable file and the app itself instructs you on screen I believe. If this is too much then the other option of course it to replace the drive. Good luck!

Dvdrw drive not working


sounds to me like you are trying to read a dvd from a cd drive
if so you have to have a dvd drive in order to read the disk
cd drives do not support dvd drives unless they are cd/dvd drives
