There is one screw holding the drive in either on the bottom at the back of the dvd drive or under the keyboard. Once you remove it find the model number and check ebay.Order one and when it comes just slide it back in and screw it down

Best thing to do is to try run something bootable from laptop start-up. For instance Windows installation disc or some kind of testing software disc. If it boots up, then your Operating System needs to be re-installed or maybe that disc is damaged. You could also try that disc on another computer to be sure that disc is OK or unreadable.

Will not process DVD -R, +R, -RW, +RW discs


You need to get a program such as Nero or Roxio that can burn them. Once you do this, you'll be able to write content on them for use in other computers.

Having a problem with my cd rom,I install a disc and it spins slow and will not open it. any ideas


Install a new Cd RW or DVD RW they are not expensive and easy to install. Pretty much remove covers with power off. unscrew and remove two or three conectors and install new the same way.

ZV5370US Optical drive no longer works


Those chances are pretty high, although I would try testing with different discs, and types of discs. In example dvds, cd's, I don't recomend CD or DVD R RW discs though, they are generally harder for the drive to read. Also with the cost of replacement laptop parts you may consider trying to have it serviced before accepting defeat and replacing the unit.
