First of all eject the cd draw and leave it open, this makes it a little easier a bit later. Power down the laptop unplug power supply and remove the battery. Turn laptop over, note where the cd drive is and about 6" from the draw edge towards the center of the laptop is a screw, undo the screw and remove it. The cd\dvd drive should slide out with a little persuasion.
Good Look.

The DVD writer doesn't recognize that there is a


Most DVD drives are also CD drives, and it sounds like the DVD part is broken, you need to replace the DVD drive, this is done simply by buying a new one, I recommend Newegg.com ( if your unsure search exactly what you already have) then opening your case (tower) and just unplugging old one and plugging new one in, it really is very doable for even a novice.

My ps3 will play dvds and ps2 games but wont play ps3 games or blueray dvds


Hi, the problem you are having is with the bluray part of the dvd drive the only way of getting this sorted will be to replace the whole dvd drive, first check if you have any warranty before you let anyone do any work on it if you have warranty then you should be covered, check on the ps3 site about how much warranty sony offer from new.

if you have no warranty left then you need to find someone who knows how and what to do, their are several different dvd drives for the ps3 so this will need checking before you buy a new dvd drive, then once you have got the right drive its not just a case of taking the old out and putting the new in what you need to do is take the main circuit board off your old drive and swap this with the one on the new drive. the reason you have to do this is when the ps3 was put together the dvd drive and the main circuit board in the ps3 where married, ie these parts were joined together with software now as sony have done this you cant just change the whole dvd drive over as the new one wont be recognised by your ps3 as it will have the firmware of another ps3 serial number so you need to change the circuit board off the bottom of your dvd drive and swap this onto the new dvd drive, than when you fit the drive your ps3 will think its the old drive and it will then be working.

its not easy to do and its difficult just to take the ps3 apart so be warned.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance

Getting an error message "disc


HI, this is a very very common problem with all xbox 360's the problem you are having is as you all ready worked out not the games, the problem is with the laser it has started to stop reading the games due to it loosing its power, now if your xbox is less than 3 years old then you need to contact microsoft and they will then send you a refurbished working xbox 360, if how ever its over 3 years old then the only option you have is to get it repaired, now the problem with this is its not just a case of buying a new dvd drive and taking the old one out and putting the new in, the problem you have is that their are 3 different types of dvd drive you might have in your xbox but even when you find out which drive you have got then you also need to have special software to take the data off your old dvd drive and then put this data onto the new dvd drive, without doing this it wont recognise the new drive.

its not an easy job to do and if you have not done it before then its not something you should try doing, now some of the dvd drives can have the power to the laser adjusted but to do this you need to know what dvd drive you have got and you will also need special tools such as multi meter to read the readings for the laser as you adjust it, you need to look around for an xbox repair service near to you, i do alot of these but im in UK so probably no help to you in the respect,

some independent phone shops offer xbox repair service so have a look around and see what price you can get, the best option would be to have the dvd drive replaced as adjusting the laser may only work for a few days before it burns it out.

let me know if you need further assistance ok or if you have any questions

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Xbox only reads dvd not games


Laser is knackered mate, could try pot calibration otherwise you will need to replace the DVD drive

*You cannot just replace the DVD drive you need to extract a unique Key from the drive and make sure the new drive has this Key

I purchased a 360 cosole -w- a defective dvd drive, put new one


DId you write the bin from the old drive to the new drive?. The dvd drive is married to the motherboard which means you just cant change the dvd drive and play games in it without it matching the bin which is encoded on the dvd drive chip in the original drive.

Replaced xbox 360 dvd drive not read


Ok the problem is all xbox 360 motherboards come with preset keys like a password everyone is different. your origanal samsung dvd drive also has the key programed into its sst chip on the pcb (Printed Circut Board) which allows it to work with that motherboard (another way of explaning this is it works the same way as a wireless network anyone can connect to it but you must input the correct password to be able to connect and use the internet)

There is a solution you need to extract the dvd key out of your old dvd drive and inject it into your new one. To do this you will need a few tools

Dvd drive wont work


You probably need a new drive. if the computer is only six months old it should still be under warranty. Just call the manufacturer and tell them you have a faulty dvd rom and see if you have to send the computer back or if they can just send you a new drive.
