If your laptop/notebook has an internal CD drive you can replace it with this DVD +/-RW & CD-RW combo drive. This way you can read CD & DVD disks, play DVD titles, write to CD-R, CD-RW, DVD +/-R, DVD +/- RW disks, and back up your important files/data to DVD or CD disks.

With this slim combination drive, mobile PC users can now create DVD videos and CD audio files all with the same drive. This allows users to burn and edit both work-related and personal digital productions on the fly and on the go.

This drive brings DVD recording to the mobile world and gives users a stepping stone to move from CD to DVD technology (for creating and storing family photos, files, videos, etc.).

This slim-drive supports writing DVD +-R/RW.

    You can compare your current CD drive with this drive to determine whether this drive will work for you:

    1. Compare the CD Drive front bezel. This drive front bezel is a straight rectangle shape. The dimension is: 0.5" (12.7mm) x 5.04" (128mm).

    2. Compare the rear connector:
      This CD Drive has a 50-pin ATAPI IDE Interface Connector as the picture shows:

    If your original CD drive rear connector looks different from this drive, it may have a special rear adapter added to the drive rear connector. Some laptops use this rear adapter to change the position and shape of the rear connector. In this case, you need to remove that rear adapter from original drive and re-use the rear adapter with the new drive.

    If your current CD drive front bezel is the same rectangle shape and dimension,  and the rear connector is same, then you can replace it with this DVD +/-RW drive.

    Tech Note:This drive is a bare drive only. Some laptops may use mounting frames or a caddy around the bare CD drive for easy swap. You need to re-use the mounting frames or caddy in order to use this new drive.

    Installation Notes
  • This drive has no jumpers that need to be set
  • For clearance around the front bezel, it is recommended that a clearance of more than 0.8mm should be left in all directions.
  • This drive does not require any unique device drivers for Windows '98/2000/XP/NT/Vista. After installing your drive and re-booting, your system should recognize your drive. Win '98/2000/XP/NT/Vista Operating Systems support all ATAPI drives naively
