    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.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Sir my compaq presario model 2655ts coming with philips cd writer and dvd reader is not reading cds and dvd


Hi,
If you are having problem reading and writing cds and dvds. You can try running the following fix it patch from Microsoft. If the same doesn't resolve the problem , then you would have to consider replacing the drive. As the optical drive has a laser lens, that has life duration or capacity to read and burn disks . Once the same is reached you need to replace the drive.

I have an old Compaq Presario 5109 desktop (5000 Series Presario), it is no longer useful for what I need it for, but I would like the DVD drive out of it, so far I can not find out how to take it out. ...


I would like you to download (Free) the, Upgrading and Servicing Guide, for the Compaq Presario SR5109UK,
(Will apply to your SR5109 desktop computer),

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/manualCategory?lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&product=3457899&lang=en&

On this page the file is the first one in the list.
Upgrading and Servicing Guide - 2.06MB

Left-click right on the file name.

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.

After you click on the file name - Upgrading and Servicing Guide, it may take up to 30 seconds before you see the first page.
It may also take longer before the file has fully downloaded.

(Took 4 seconds before I saw the first page, and an additional 20 seconds before the file was fully downloaded. Medium speed DSL connection)

Page 12 has information about removing an Optical Drive. (CD/DVD drive)

Should you not be bale to download this file from HP Support, please state so in a Comment, and I'll lead you through it step by step.

(Computer unplugged from power. The Front Panel has to be removed, and the Side Cover. Then there is a locking arm you swing down to remove an optical drive)

My dvd drive doesnt open on my Compaq Presario SR2150NX, i finally got it open with the manual open, but im trying to install windows 7 on it, but when i try it says theres something wrong with something...


Hello,

Check to see if the DVD drive is connected to the power supply and the IDE connectors.
Can your dvd drive be displayed in "My Computer"
If yes, then it is connected, so, you will have to reinstall the drivers. They could be corrupted?

Thank you for using Fixya,
