I am having problems with the Dell Latitude C610 battery and CD drive, both included (01691P A03 battery, 5044D A02 CD).
The CD drive is not functioning at all and the drive bay is fully operational, proven with one of the batteries ("Battery A").
"Battery A" is showing an error code of 10101, but is still operational to a low degree.
There is also a "Battery B", which was bought at a recycling center in Redmond. It is the same model as "Battery A" (01691P A03). It appears to be "dead" in both drive bays, and shows no functionality with on the power lights.

when you took out the old hard drive
there is a black hard drive connector
this would have holes to push on to the new hard drive
without this, it will not plug into the motherboard
be careful if one of the pins breaks the hard drive wont work
Yes you can. On the bottom of the laptop there are 2 slide releases, one releases the battery the other is for the multi bay. With the computer off just slid the release and the drive will slide out forward. You can pick up dvd drives on Ebay and other sites for about $30.00 and you can even get dvd burners for your machine. If windows is running you can look in the bottom right corner and click on the eject hardware icon and stop the floppy or cd/dvd drive and eject the drive with the machine on. If the laptop is on you do need to stop the drive before you eject it or you can damage the drive and the laptop. I hope this helps you, if so please rate my solution.
