How to replace DVD drive for LG LS50a

Hi there,

My DVD writer in my LG LS50a is broken and needs to be replaced. LG have advised that a standard IDE burner that fits will be ok for replacement but I have two questions. Firstly can I just buy any slim IDE DVD writer and secondly, I have found it very difficult to dismantle the laptop. Do you have any directions as to replace a disc drive in the LG LS50a? It does not seem like an easy task yet my laptop is not worth much these days that there is no point in spending so much money going to LG or the other computer guys who want to charge me an arm and a leg. Help!

    Hi, i'm not really understanding what you are trying to say. In no way did I indeed to "dispose or scape" of my laptop as it is in perfect working order and has very good specs that handle a lot of my bigger programs.



    I was asking how you open up my model and replace the drive? Your comment makes no sense at all.

How to replace the dvd drive with dvd writer ?


You take the securing screw out, you slide the old unit out gently, you disconnect is cables, you buy a PATA dvd writer like http://www.bixnet.com/insldvcodr.html and install it in the opposite way.

there should be a small hole in the front of the cd where u can put in a paper clip to pop the cd out. removing the drive will not give you access to the cd

Cd-rom has write in different format


try a CD or DVD from a different package to make sure your CDs were not defective,
try to use your cd on a fairly new pc, if it is seen as empty your dvd writer is broken and has to be replaced. it's cheap about 20$
You only need to take it out and see if it has a IDE(large) or SATA(smaller) connector to replace it with one that has the same connector.

Cd/dvd burner


Hi,
this may be because you haven't installed the drivers for your cd/dvd burner/ just put in the driver CD that came along the laptop and install the drivers and it will work fine,

one more thing you should do is check if the drive is enabled in bios

to enter bios see what your system asks you to press to enter setup
you should also look at the computer management screen in control panel if it has been disabled there

also check the device manager if it is listed there.

Further Queries are welcome

Dvd rom problem


as soon as a dvd writer drive only starts to play cd's, cdrw's or only reports that you have a CDRW drive when inserting a blank DVD, the writers laser is worn out or faulty and no longer recognises dvd's, and so needs replacing i'm afraid, but as you may know not all dvd drives are hot swapable and need to be replaced by a repairer.

USB DVD ROM no detected


You need XP service pack 2 or later installed on your notebook. Does your notebook detect other USB drvices, if not your USB port on the PC is gone. If the USB prt is working and you have XP service pack 2 installed then you probably got a bum DVD drive so return it and get another.

Where can I get a manual to disasseemble and reassemble LS50a


LG does not post their service manuals on the internet so it will be more difficult. Make sure that you have removed all screws from the monitor, some may be covered by rubber stoppers, pry them apart on your damaged laptop. It may help to follow this step by step for a dell, not that it will be the same but it will give you a guideline of how to handle the parts and the precautions to take http://www.laptoprepair101.com/laptop/category/lcd-screen-repair/
