Ok almost ANY DVD CD that will physically fit into the space will do they are all more or less the same... Just get yaself a replacement bare DVD from ya friendly PC store and then simply open up the PC ya will see where the DVD is mounted, undo the screws holding it... remove the two cables the Data and Power they can only go on one way... replace the new DVD put screws back reconnect Power and Data .. ya good to go. Otherwise if ya don't wanna do that maybe get yaself an external DVD via the USB port... and just disable the old one in device manager and use USB one.. anyway GL.

Compaq laptop will not turn on. have pictures I need to get on it.

A computer-technician can remove the disk-drive from your computer, temporarily connect it to another computer, and copy all the pictures from the disk-drive onto a DVD-writable disk, which you can use in another computer, until your computer gets fixed.

Thank you leecom72. Here's the info.

I have found a firmware update for you >>>>>>>>>>>>>

Remember be careful with any firmware updates, since for instance EX31 means here not only F/W version, but also drive IDE setting / "orientation" (MASTER / SLAVE / Invert CSEL)
and there is absolutely no warranty that this update will fix your drive reading problems...

Good luck :)
