Hi Jerry
I have written down steps on how to remove the DVD-Rom drive for you.
Toshiba notebooks most screws are marked.
F4 - flat-head screw 4mm long
B6 - button-head screw 6mm long
F16 - flat-head screw 16mm long
B8 - button-head screw 8mm long

When you are taking apart a laptop you'll have to deal with lots of screws. Keep everything organized. I keep them in small cups separated easier to find and don’t get lost.
1. Remove the laptop battery
2. Carefully lift off the securing strip at the top of the keyboard.
3. Remove the keyboard securing strip.
4. Remove all screws securing the laptop keyboard.
5. Disconnect the keyboard cable from the system board. Lift the edges of the connector first and then carefully disconnect the keyboard cable.
6. Remove screws securing the power switch board.
7. Disconnect the USB cable from the system board \motherboard
8. Lift off the power switch board.
9. Remove all screw from the support plate.
10. Remove the DVD drive securing screw.
11. Slide the DVD drive to the right and remove it.
12. Slide in the new DVD drive and follow this backwards.

Hope this helps it is not hard just have to take time an becareful when removing the securing strip at the top of the keyboard to get to screws.

Any questions I will be glad to help answer for you.


Bill

The DVD-ROM drive will not open to release the DVD when the button is pushed on the drive. RESOLUTION:

  2. Wait 10 to 15 seconds, and then open the DVD-ROM drive by pushing the eject button on the DVD-ROM drive.

    • Insert a paper clip or small pointed object into the small hole near the button on the DVD-ROM door.
      Gently push in the paper clip until the DVD-ROM door opens.
    • Remove the CD from the drive.
To prevent the DVD-ROM drive from exhibiting this behavior again, follow these steps:
  1. From the Start menu, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel.
  2. In Control Panel, double-click the System icon.

On the dvd rom drive sound slike it catching on something on the inside stoppin git from ejecting you will have to use a flat head screw driver poke it from the top and very gently pry it open while pushing the eject button as soon as it ejects you can then remove any cds inside it and you can remove the dvd rom drive bezel and close it if it opens and closes freely while this dvd rom bezel is off then the piece of plastic you took off it is slightly made wrong you can get these bezels cheap or by finding an old rom drive and removing that one to replace with yours. any additional questions please use the comment box below Kronoguy

I have e machines EL1300G-02W desktop pc has dvd rom can i add a cdrom drive?


Your DVD-ROM drive will also play CD's. You can also easily remove it and replace it with a CD-ROM drive if you like. Simply open the case, unscrew the DVD-ROM, remove the power and data cables from the back and pull it out through the front of the case. Installing the CD-ROM just involves doing this in the reverse order. Make sure your computer is off and unplugged during this process.

I can't insert any cd's.


Maybe the laser eye is jammed. It tracks back and forth reading data from the disc.
You may either replace the drive or have it repaired.
I had one on my PC do the same vibrating, clicking noise. It only cost 40.00 to replace.
But for a laptop, you're looking between 60-100 dollars to replace.
You can see how much it would cost to repair first, but my guess is it would be cheaper to replace.

My emachines dvd rom is not detecting a dvd in the drive


Dissamble the dvd rom from pc. Open it and clean the laser with a soft cloth or try a dvd lens cleaner disk. You can buy it from any hardware shop. Connect the cables correctly. Start with a fresh dvd disk. If your pc still can't detect dvd disc, replace dvd rom with a new one.

Installing a new DVD drive


Step1::Ground yourself by first touching a metal object or wearing an anti-static wrist strap. This helps protect your computer's internal
components from damage due to static.
Step2::Shut down your computer and unplug it to protect yourself from electric shock.
Step3::Open your computer's case using the door on the side or follow the manufacturer's directions for your desktop.
Step4::Install the DVD ROM on its own IDE channel. Since a DVD ROM uses a good bit of memory, it should also be the master drive. Set your old
CD ROM or secondary DVD ROM drive to "slave" and set the new DVD rom drive to "master."
Step5::Slide the new DVD ROM in the free 5 1/4-inch bay and use clips or screw into place if necessary, then use the data cable that came with
the DVD drive to connect your new drive. Plug in the power cable as well.
Step6::Replace the cover on your computer, plug it back in and boot it up. If you have Windows XP, it should automatically detect and attempt
to install the new DVD ROM drive. If it doesn't, use the installation disk that came with your DVD ROM.

Cd/dvd dosen work pleace geimy a solution


Hi,
i cant get you. cd/dvd is not working or cd/dvd rom drive is not working ? To work cd/dvd rom drive properly, Make sure the Jumper settings of the drive is set to slave or else remove all the jumpers from the cd/dvd rom drive, it automatically sets to slave. Check the power cable and the FRC(flat ribbon cable) of the cd/dvd rom drive. Hopefully it should work. Thank you.
