    Make sure that the DVD drive is empty.

    Turn off your notebook.

    Disconnect the AC adapter, modem cable, and

    network cable.

    Disconnect all peripheral devices and remove any

    PC Cards.

    Turn your notebook over so the bottom is facing up,

    then remove the battery.

    With a small Phillips screwdriver, remove the

    keyboard screw and put it in a safe place.

    Loosen the six memory bay cover screws (these

    screws cannot be removed), then remove the

    memory bay cover.

    With a small Phillips screwdriver, remove the DVD

    drive screw, then put it in a safe place.



    Slide the DVD drive out of the drive bay by pushing

    on the DVD bracket.
    Slide the new DVD drive into the drive bay. Make
    sure that the drive fits securely in the bay.
    Secure the DVD drive with the screw removed previously

    Replace the memory bay cover, then tighten the six

    cover screws.

    Replace the keyboard screw.

    Insert the battery, then turn your notebook over.

    Connect the power adapter, modem cable, and

    network cable, then turn on your notebook

    Please let me know if you have any issues.

Unable to Write DVDs on my Packard Bell Easy Note Skype edition


dear mohan,

You may find the freeware program burnatonce quite helpful, for its info tools provide you with detailed information of the drive's capabilities,
for there are many burnable dvd's out there.Install
the program, let it check your drive.
To me it looks like it supports only DVD+R and DVD+RWs, but I may be mistaken.

Good luck, you'll solve the problem
