Question about Computers & Internet

I need to replace the CD-RW/DVD-Rom drive on my LG LM50 laptop. It has a Toshiba drive, SD-R9012 is the model number. The local agents can sell me one but the price is way too high. Can I replace this with another make of drive, preferably a DVD writer which is compatible? Which drives would be compatible? I can send a picture of the drive if necessary.

    Thanks for the quick reply, I was hoping to get a DVD writer. The price of about $30-40 would be ok as I then have to have it sent to South Africa. I see there are drives on e-bay for the right kind of price but surely there are DVD writers available with the same kind of connector?

Hi,

the problem here is the connector on the drive. You need to replace it with the same model drive.

You can get a cheaper deal from ebay, I assume 50-75usd is less than what the dealer asked.

A workaround would be to use a USB external DVD drive. which will probably be cheaper. for a cheap deal look on ebay.

Thanks, let me know if you need anything else or if you have any questions.

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.

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.
