Hello,

yes, this is possible. Go to any computer accessories shop to purchase the cd/dvd-rw drive. Open your computer case and unscrew the old cd driver from your computer. You will see two wires connected to the cd drive. One is called IDE cable; which connects the cd drive to the motherboard, while the other is powering the cd drive.

Remove these wires and and connect them exactly the same way on the new cd/dvd-rw drive, screw back the cd/dvd-rw drive, screw back and that's all you need to do.

By now, you should have successfully installed your cd/dvd-rw drive

Good luck.

No disc boot


Please test your media (DVD or CD? + or -? RW or R? I prefer to use CD-R) in other computer. Probably your T600e can not read the media. Did you make bootable disc? Please recheck it.

We have LG DVD Combo Drive in our Desk Top PC where in Drive can Play CD but can not Play DOV or can not dispay contents on any DVD Inserted. Please Help Thanks Krishna Bikes Pvt Ltd.


In this case the laser for the dvd has died. This can't be fixed, you must replace the entire drive - a new dvd-rw will cost you less than $30.

I can burn cd's but not dvd's


Hello Rfd832,
What I see from the description is that the drive is a combo drive. Combo drives are CD-RW and DVD-ROM drives means
CD-RW = Compact Disk-Read Write
DVD-ROM = Digital Versatile Disk - Read Only Memory
so these drives can read and write CDs but can only read DVDs (Cannot write or burn DVDs)
If you want to be able to burn DVDs then you need to have DVD RW drive (either DVD+RW or DVD-RW)

You said that you are able to burn DVDs on other computer so please check the label on the DVD drive.. it should be DVD-RW/DVD+RW drive


Hope that helps.. :)

Thanks and Regards,
Srinivas
