Satellite A50-108: how to remove the CD/DVD drive?

I want to update my CD - RW drive for a dvd burner, but can't get the old drive of the laptop.
I removed the screw on the underside of the laptop, but it won't come out.

Do we know if there is any other screws received a way to remove the drive of any help greatly.

It's very strange that you can not remove the optical drive as DVD - ROM drive Assembly is secured with just a screw on the underside. If the screw is removed, you just pull all of the DVD-ROM drive.

There is no other screws.

  • Satellite Pro A120: How do I remove the CD/DVD drive

    I have 2 main problems and doesn't seem to completely open the case.
    Does anyone know how to remove the dvd - rom?

    But my mainproblem is swith power Ribbon (blue) has come off the motherboard. But as I can't open completely the case im with tweezers for trying to recconect.

    Does not seem to want to go.
    Is there a clip into the connector on the motherboard or is it just push in? A picture or a diagram would be helpful.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you

    One question; Why are you doing this?
    I mean why you want to open the notebook?
    Always it is that Satellite Pro A120 is not an old notebook and I presume that the guarantee is valid.
    If you remove the lid of the laptop, you will lose the warranty!

    The removal of CD/DVD is very easy.
    Usually, it is fixed with a screw located at the bottom of the unit. You have to remove first, and then he should be able to take off from the STRANGE.

    You're stuck on the LCD mask?
    As far as I know the LCD mask is covered by two screws that are hidden under the joints.
    You will need to remove both seals of mask LCD, and then you could remove the two screws hidden under the seals mentioned.
    Then, you could put your fingers between the mask and the LCD screen in order to release the LCD mask plastic locks.

    But note; Be careful, don't use any force!

    I guess that you do not see the CD/DVD drive in MY computer area.

    I think I can help you
    First go to Device Manager and search for CD/DVD drive.
    Select this device and delete it from the list.

    Now, open the registry (type regedit in the search) and remove the filters above and below to the following registry key:
    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE \SYSTEM \CurrentControlSet\Control \Class \{4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}

    Have you checked the site factory of Nero for an update? Maybe it s just a software problem that the burning procedure fails.
    In addition, you can try another burning program. A few days ago, I tested CD BurnerXP and I was very surprised! It s a freeware program and it also contains a large number of functions that it s worth a try! ;)

    Here in the forum I noticed that the dismantling of the upper and lower filters can often solve problems with the CD/DVD drive to check of workaround from Microsoft:
