Just open the far side panel and unscrew them from there.  Contrawise (if the top and side are one piece) you can find how to loosen the top/side housing and pull that back.

Cant get roxio my dvd/le combo or roxiocreator plus to install


To install the software you must remove your cd/dvd drives. Physically from your computer. This is a common problem with this software. After installed plug your drives back in and you should be good to go.

I need to replace the dvd/rw in my GT5026E but cant find the original. What will replace it


Any 5 1/4 DVD / CD drive will work. You may have to order drive rails depending on the setup of Gateways tower. You should have 2 - 5.25" Drive Bays available. The original model number and name for the DVD drive is 5648 DVD Burner Combo Drive .

The tower does have internal SATA so you can replace it with any internal SATA DVD rom you like, it doesnt have to be Gateway, and it can even be blu-ray.

Hope this helps

SAMSUNG SH-M522 dvd COMBO not working


Please recheck its cable connections as well as the jumper settings of your DVD Combo (master or slave), then during boot-up, check if it's being recognized in your BIOS system. regards

DVD is not being detected by combo drive


Hi Imran,
Sadly this is a fairly common problem with combo drives. In all likelihood, it will cost you more to have the drive repaired than to replace it.
I will suggest purchasing a dvd writer to replace the combo drive.
They are fairly inexpensive.

No dvd reader what can i do to solve it


Your machine can support just about any IDE dvd rom or combo. When replacing the cd drive just make sure that the jumper on the back of the new drive matches the jumper setting on the back of the old one (master/slave/cs). The diagram for the jumpers should be on the top of the drive.

Dvd/cd combo drive not working


First I would call the company that did the work
I would hope they would stand behind what they have or have not done
With what you are saying my first thought would be to open up the computer and make sure the IDE cables from the DVD drive are connected, first to the drive, then to th motherboard

DVD/CD - RW Combo Drives


Any brand should work as long as you have the correct drivers.

Either IDE (internal) or USB (external) will work.
