Could someone point me in the right direction. I have a Compaq Presario
12XL300 12OO Series laptop with cd-rom drive. Wanting to replace with cd
burner/dvd rom combo unit, or at least a cd burner (rewriter).
My problem is this; the manual does not say if you can upgrade, or which
part number of either. From what little I know there is a Sony # CRX700E
that will work but , I would need a caddy & a front bezel for this cd
burner, Is the bezel the front plastic door. The caddy what the drive itself
mounts on (in) or is it the tray the cd sets on and glides in & out of the
drive? Some poor questions I guess.
I need a good informative laptop Notebook site!
Thanks very much in advance. donny
Re: CD Burner
The drive connector and caddie are reused. The front bezel might fit
the new drive, but if not it usually does not affect the performance.
Purchase a replacement drive from a vendor with a refund policy for the
case that the new drive really does not work as a replacement.
