Sure...and it's not that hard to do.

first, turn off your laptop

then turn it on it's back, so bottom is visible

look for a screw in line from cd player..usually about 1/3 of way in

remove that, and the cd should slide right out.

sometimes, that screw is closer to the edge.

get a replacement online, after determining the maker of the cd.

I cannot open the diskdrive in a d510. How do I get the plastic diskdrive front cover off?


What disk drive? The CD/DVD? If so, you have to have the tray open to remove the cosmetic front bezel. Not sure why you would want to remove the bezel though. The drive should have a small hole in front. Take a paperclip and straighten it. Use the paperclip to force open the drive. You can force open the drive with either the computer on or off.

I switched disk drive from 360 to 360 and now it wont play dvds someone please help!!


the issue is with in the swapping. The system inbedded a security code that is only identify by that single xbox360. In order for your system to recongize your disk drive in another xbox360 is if 1. the diskdrive is replica of the one swaped then only the chip under the drive is needed from that system or 2. flashing the disk drive. **BOTH ARE ILLEGAL**

you can manage either one by googling flashing xbox360 diskdrive ______ <--- the type of diskdrive you swaped out.

This depends, if it's a disk failure you probably have lost data. If the disk still works the data can be recovered by attaching the disk to a another computer

The dvd multidrive dos not show up in device manager


Check the bios to make sure the drive is recognized.

As far as printer install goes, you can just download the latest install package from Epson's website direct.

If the drive isn't recognized you either have a bad drive or a problem with the motherboard. Either way you should remove the drive from the laptop and then reseat it back into the laptop. While everything is off and the battery removed of course.

Xbox 360 diskdrive


Im sorry to hear about that Markis, but they Xbox and the 360's drives are not interchangeable. For one the Xbox had this random multi pin connector, while the 360 has a SATA connector.
But dont despait just yet, IS your 360 still undre warranty? you can send it it to Microsoft and have them repair it. Just call 1-800-4MY-XBOX and send it in to them.
