Re: How to replace CD/DVD drive

Before you begin: Remove the battery. Remove the adapter

  1. Remove the 8mm P1 Phillips head screw, located in the hard disk drive compartment cover that secures the optical drive to the base enclosure.

    Note: Screw location is indicated by the appropriate icon for the tray.

  2. Grasp the optical drive by the bezel and slide the drive out of the base enclosure.

You would slide the new drive into the same slot. The bezel is the front part of the drive that matches the computer case.

Re: How to replace CD/DVD drive

I believe my CD/DVD Drive may need to be replaced. some forums on the net said that even if my dvd's play the optical eye could be slowing dying. Any suggestions on where to purchase one at? I have a HP DV5Z Pavilion and the warranty was up last month.
