How to change faceplate on LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD R/RW with Double Layer Support in hp pavilion


Why would you want to remove the faceplate?

If you have a dvd or cd stuck in the drive straighten out a gem clip (paper clip) and stick it into the hole that is on the faceplate (drive drawer that holds the cd or dvd) and push it while you press the eject button.

Dvd does not work all of the time. it is a LightScribe SuperMulti 8X DVD±RW with Double Layer Suppo


If it does not read any CD/DVD inserted into it, then run Microsoft Fix which is provided in the web link below. This will delete the drive registry limits.

If issue persists then perform the remaining steps in the above web link.

    Dvd


    Compaq information can be found by doing a product search on either the Compaq website or the HP website.

    The model number you have given is not enough to narrow down your machine. I have included a few of the CQ60 series machines I found with a simple search. In both cases the answer is "yes you do".

    CQ60-228US version
    Multimedia Drive
    SuperMulti 8X DVD±R/RW with Double Layer Support
    CQ60-222EZ version
    Multimedia Drive Lightscribe Super Multi DVD Writer (+/-R +/-RW) with Double Layer support

    You can find the rest of your model number by searching the label under your machine. Then search the HP or Compaq site to find all your specs, updates etc.

    Good luck and have fun with it.

    If you are asking for the information regarding the ODD here it is: DVD SuperMulti (+/-R double layer) with Labelflash? drive supporting 11 formats * Maximum speed and compatibility: CD-ROM (24x), CD-R (24x), CD-RW (4x), DVD-ROM (8x), DVD-R (Single Layer, (8x)), DVDR (Double Layer, (4x)), DVD-RW (4x), DVD+R (Single Layer, (8x)), DVD+R (Double Layer, (4x)), DVD+RW (4x), DVD-RAM (5x) * Supports Labelflash? media to burn high quality labels directly on the disk. If not ( Cant read CD or DVD ) then most likely the lens on the ODD is already busted. or ODD cant be detected then just go to the Website support.toshiba.com and download the latest update for the ODD. And install the driver on your NB and restart the NB. If still the same then the ODD you have is already busted what you need to do is to buy a new ODD.

    Dics Drive Upgrade for Toshiba Satillate.


    As far as i know thats impossible. Your optical diskdrive is made just for those speeds that you have on it. You cant change the manufacture settings and speed it upp, or make it to an dual layer disk.
    Buy a new one whit the needs that u want and replace the old one. Its easy done and its not that expensive.

    Good luck to you
