Open up your LG Recorder. You should see the HDD on the left, the DVD drive in the middle and a circuit board on the right..

Now, look at the back of the dvd drive.. you should see a power connector and a standard IDE interface..

Remove both of those connections carefully. Remove the screws in the black bevels on the sides of the drive and slowly pry out the drive by lifting the IDE interface side above the main board and pulling it out while slipping out the black clips on top of the tray side..

Now that it is done, take your new dvd drive.. you may want to remove the faceplate or at least the plate from the tray ..(slide it upwards.. it should slip out ) .. Place it where the old dvd drive used to be.. do the connections and your good to go..

Before closing, Check to see if the drive is functioning. Close up.

I have swapped drives on my LG many times and even upgraded the HDD.. I have used mainly LG and sony drives..

Mine was originally shipped with 80GB some 3 years ago.. I had put in a 160 GB and now will be putting in a 250 GB as the other is already full and i like to keep those old recordings..

Our LG RH397d/rh399d DVD / Hard drive recoreder will only turn on and display the Hallo message, and you can hear a clicking sound from in side. I have remove the power cord no change .


Your DVD drive is having a problem. When this recorder starts, it checks the DVD drive for correctness. If incase your DVD drive is has problem in the ejecting mechanism then this will prevent your HDD from working correctly. Take the player to service center and fix the drive
