    The drive I'm replacing is an Optiarc AD-7530A and I am hoping it is compatible with an Optiarc AD-7530B. Do you know? Thanks.

Will an optical drive from cq62 fit mine?


NO.

I sort of see your reasoning, but NO.
HP Compaq DC7700 Ultra-Slim Desktop PC, and Compaq Presario CQ62 series of Notebook PC DVD burner drive?

http://www.ebay.com/itm/New-For-Compaq-Presario-CQ62-TS-L633-SATA-CD-RW-DVD-RW-Multi-Burner-Laptop-Drive-/300725349252?pt=US_CD_DVD_Blu_Ray_Drives&hash=item4604a0ab84

Until I compared both units I would have stated NO.

Now that I have THANK YOU. I just learned something,

http://www.amazon.com/HP-Compaq-DC7700-DC7800-DVD-ROM/dp/B004574PEG

Referring back to the photo view, of the Compaq Presario CQ62 series of Notebook PC's DVD burner drive shown, the REAR view shows the connectors for the SATA power cable, and SATA data cable.

The connectors use the same L-shape design, and size that a SATA unit for a desktop computer, would use.

Case design looks to be similar also.

I believe you are Correct.

Could not locate DVD/CD-ROM drives on my COMPAQ Presario V 2000. Thank You.


If you have an optical drive, it will be on the right hand side of the computer. It is almost centered on that side. There should be a manual eject hole to force the tray to release just below the tray on the drive (closer to the hinge of the computer). For an appropriate replacement drive, look at the Maintenance and Service Guide starting at page 5-8.
For all the manuals as PDFs see: http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=500508&lang=en&

I hope this helps.

(the standard drive is a tray type drive so if the computer has identified the hardware (power, data cable) you should be able to eject the tray from the File Explorer (My Computer/Computer depending on the OS).)

Question on the Compaq Presario 700


You can find the hard drive size by opening my computer and highlighting the C drive (this is basically the hard drive), towards the lower left of the screen it will tell you the initial size and how many gigs you have left. If it says something like 38.6 g, then it's a 40g hard drive (hard drives are in even sizes, so, round up), the missing 1.4g is used for drivers and utilities. This is just an example, I don't know exactly what size yours is, they come from the factory with various sizes. The optical drive is the CD drive. So, is it a CD-ROM, CD-RW, DVD-ROM, DVD+RW. It will say on the front of the drive what it is exactly.

Compaq C504US notebook PC


Hi, What exactly happens when you plug in the USB cable into laptop and turn on the printer? Does any window pop up that says "New hardware found?" Or if you check in the device manager list, is there a yellow question mark in there anwhere. To check for this question mark, -Right click on My Computer -Select Hardware -Click on Device Manager In this window is where the yellow question mark would be. If there is one, this means that your laptop does recognize the printer but have not installed the driver cd as yet. However, the CD that comes with the printer is not for Windows Vista. To get the drivers for vista you have to go to the drivers and downloads page of http://www.lexmark.com website and download the vista driver. If none of the above happens and this does not work then it might be another problem. Let me know what happens. Lolita
