Dell :: XPS 1640: Replace Slot Loading Optical Drive With Hard Drive And Caddy

Sep 29, 2009

I'm thinking of removing my DVD drive and replacing it with a caddy and hard drive as explained here.

I don't use the DVD drive very often and would much prefer a 500GB or 1TB hard drive in there. The DVD drive can then be used externally via the eSATA port using this cable.

The ideal solution would be to use this NewmodeUS caddy as it supports the larger 12.7mm 1TB 2.5" hard drives and has a removable faceplate. The problem is the price.

At $55 including postage to the UK plus customs, VAT and clearance fees on top it's going to work out pretty expensive for what is essentially a slimline SATA to SATA extension

Dell :: Removing The Optical Drive On An XPS M1330

May 19, 2010

I googled around to see if anyone had done this but got no results.

Is it possible to remove the optical drive from the XPS M1330 and put some sort of plastic placeholder there instead? Being able to fit an extra battery or hard-drive would be great, but I can settle for some plastic.

Dell :: M4400 Optical Drive Upgrade

Jan 12, 2009

I'm buying a refurb M4400 that comes with a DVD-ROM drive. I'd like to upgrade it to a DVD-RW.

Dell sells an IDE and a SATA drive. I'm not sure which one I should be getting. I'm hoping M4400 owners here might be able to give me more info - do all M4400s have IDE drives, all have SATA, or is it a mix? Can I safely order one or the other, or will I have to wait and see what my system has before I can order?

HP/Compaq :: Can't Get Optical Drive Out Of DV5

I'm putting a new motherboard into a DV5.

I'm following the steps in the manual here:[url]

I'm trying to remove the optical drive as per the instructions on page 55. I've removed the screw and I have the drive open. When I pull on the drive drawer nothing moves. I am afraid if I pull harder I'll break it.

Apple :: MBP - Optical Drive

Jan 5, 2009

I am still using Tiger, 10.4 on my MBP.

I have recently been having issues with my optical drive. I was burning a cd for a friend and it would not burn it or pop it out when I asked it to. I had to re-start while holding down the spacebar (or mouse button?) in order for the cd to come out. I forget which method I used, but using terminal did not work nor did the eject key.

It has also done this while running iDVD to watch a movie. The iDVD interface will not work and produces the spinning beachball of death and then I cannot eject the DVD. I either have to leave it alone for the night or restart the computer. Only then will iDVD stop acting up so I can eject the DVD.

Does anyone know why this is happening? Is it all to blame on the optical drive? I just went to the Apple Genius Bar a few weeks ago for a new battery. I hoping my MBP isn't falling apart.

Dell :: Optical Drive Noise In Studio 1558?

Feb 6, 2010

I got my Studio 15 notebook yesterday.

Whenever I power on my notebook. I hear one sound twice for a second. There after on 'Dell' screen I hear it once again just before Windows 7 startup screen appears. I think it's from slot optical drive.
Am I correct?

I have never used a notebook before.

So kindly tell me is this normal ? Do optical drives in notebooks make such sounds at startup as well as more noise while using (compared to desktops)

Sony :: PCG-V505ECP Optical Drive

Jan 19, 2009

the cd/dvd combo drive crapped on me as it only reads CDs now, no dvds. I did however steal a dvd rom drive from a Tr3ap1 , which is also the UJDA755 model so i'm assuming it well work.

Well when i tried disassembling the v505 it was impossible. i've sat for 2 hours trying to split the halves of the case to gain access and looked online everywhere to see if there were any guides but i have failed.

i even looked at the diagram but it didn't help me as all i could figure out from it were the hidden screw.

Sony :: New Z Optical Drive Replacement

Mar 7, 2010

if you can take apart a Sony Z and replace the optical drive with a standard hard drive? Would the older tutorial here be the same way you can take apart a new sony Z or how do you think you could get in there?

[url]

Or is that a different model? I don't suppose there's a new tutorial out for the new Zs as they just came out.

On another note - I heard you're suppose make a new connector for the hard drive because the Sony Z uses microSATA or uSATA or something like that for their optical drives. There isn't a connector that you can readily purchase now.

HP/Compaq :: Dv4000 Optical Drive

Jun 8, 2009

I have a dv4000. It's a bit dated at 3.5 years I've had it, but a pretty solid and reliable notebook. Never any big problems other than a small crack from handling it wrong. But I recently have had an optical drive problem the past couple of months. It doesn't usually bother me too much until I try to use it with a disc. I bought a Macbook and plan on selling this notebook soon, and want to see if I can fix the problem before I sell it, or at least come to the root.

I can hit it around the optical drive area and sometimes the drive will randomly come open. I didn't accidentally hit the button or anything. That or the light on it will start blinking for a bit. When I hit the button for it to open it takes like 10 tries or so of repeatedly hitting it before it will decide to open. When I get a disc in it sometimes it will blink for a bit and act as if there's no disc. I can open and close it again and it will sometimes recognize a disc and play it, but if I hit the area by the drive too hard it will quit running. I have tried reseating the drive. It seemed to work at first, but then it started up with the same problems. My best guess is that it coming disconnected with the data connectors or something and causing it to act up, but I wouldn't know how to keep it any more connected with only 1 screw holding it in...

Dell :: Have Any E4300 Owners Replaced Optical With A Second 2.5" Drive?

Aug 23, 2009

I'm loosely considering picking up either a 13.3" Latitude E4300 or a 14.1" Latitude E6400, but a feature that's really important to me is being able to replace the optical drive with a second 2.5" drive so that I can have an SSD + 500 GB hard drive setup.

In the stickied thread about adding another 2.5" drive to Latitudes, someone suggested that even though the E4300's optical is a "fixed bay," the drive adapter should fit in there anyway -- it just won't lock into place with a latch.

My questions are:

1) Has anyone with an E4300 tried this?
2) Would anyone with an E4300 be interested in trying this?
3) If you have tried it, are there any downsides? e.g. does the drive jostle around or anything or does it hold securely in place!

Dell Inspiron 15R :: 5520 - Noise Coming From Optical Drive?

Mar 1, 2013

I had noise coming from my optical drive. The computer randomly checks my optical drive as if I were booting up or put a disk in it.  I took it out, re-seated it and flashed the BIOS.  It seemed to be better for a week or so but it has come back with a vengeance. I keep hearing the click of it accessing at odd times (again, when I insert a memory stick, or am working with pictures, were some times that it makes the noise).  I now crack the door and leave the drive open so it's not accessing on and off all the time.

Sony :: Replace Optical Drive With Mechanical HDD

May 11, 2010

I know this has been asked many times already, but I am still confused about how well a large storage HDD can be integrated.

If I plut in something like the ultrabay, wouldn't the case be opened and let in a lot of dust into the system? I watched a youtube video with someone trying to do the same on an older Z.

He went the ghetto route and use full size SATA cable. At the end not only is there hole where the optical drive used to be

Sony :: Can I Replace Optical Drive In Vaio SR

Nov 28, 2009

if I can replace the optical drive in the Vaio SR590? It's a DVDRW, I want to put in Bluray. If Bluray drops in price, and I get a slim bluray drive, can I put it in the SR590? Looking at the computer, it seems the current drive's design is a bit different than a standard notebook optical drive. Seems like it will stick out a bit on the sides...

HP/Compaq :: Pavillion Dv9000 Optical Drive

May 10, 2010

when I was replacing my optical drive, I managed to tilt it upside down and several springs fell out. I have no clue where they came from specifically, other than knowing they have something to do with the sliding brackets on the sides.

I've searched frantically for a service manual on my optical drive to fix this problem, but I can't seem to find anything.

The drive in question is:
DVDRW/R and CD-RW Double-Layer Combo Drive with LightScribe

Part number (from the dv9000 service manual):
432973-001
