I have a Sony VAio, Model PCG-7Q1l. The fan is noisy and to remove the back, I need to remove the DVD player. I took out the screw and while the player is loose, it won't come out. I don't see

PCG-7Q1L is the Chassis number.

VGN-FJxxx should be the model number.

Ummm, VGN-FJ350

There is a semi-metallic rubber band, holding the DVD drive from the inside, and.............


It's a little green Martian man, tugging back from the other side.

After you remove the Philips head screw, tap the DVD drive's tray release button.
Ease the tray all the way out to the extended position, and then gently pull on it.
Pull DVD drive out of laptop.

Cd drive is not recongonised with qsi cdrw/dvd sbw242c -Vaio lap top PCG-k33-model PCG-9s1l

if its the original drive that came with the laptop ...just reinstall the operation system ...and this will fix the problem ...if will continue to do that means that its something wrong with the device and need to be replaced..
you can also go to bios and restore factory defaults by presing F9 or choosing the optimal defaults from the menu ...after that just save changes and reboot ...this in case the problem is from there ...cause there are cases when the drive may be deactivated from bios..

Sony Vaio Laptop PCG 9U1M

PCG-K415B is the correct model number the label is possibly the service tage or something.

Here are the specifications of your laptop
  • Intel Celeron D Processor 345 3.06GHz / 533MHz FSB
  • 512MB DDR SDRAM - Low cost double memory Offer - call for details
  • 40GB Hard Drive
  • DVD Dual Layer Drive - To read DVDs and CDs and write CDs, DVD+, DVD- and large Dual Layer DVD
  • 15.4" XGA xblacklogo.jpg Widescreen TFT Screen
  • ATI Mobility Radeon 345M 64MB shared graphics
  • Integrated wireless 802.11b/g LAN - Call for advice on Wireless networking
  • Integrated 3-in-1 card reader –Memory Stick, Memory Stick Pro, Memory Stick Duo
  • Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition
  • Includes Sony Software Bundle
My guess is that the laptop is around 1 or 1and half year old as the celeron 3.06GHz is a relatively new processor.

There should be a small screw or screws on the bottom near the drive. You should be able to slide the drive assembly out once these are removed. Replace with a compatible drive and reinsert the screws. Boot up and install any needed drivers for the new drive. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.
