Re: Replacement bezels for LiteOn drives?

Already checked there. Thanks though.
I've sent an email to LiteOn asking if they have 'em available.
Does LiteOn read their mail?

Re: Replacement bezels for LiteOn drives?

I got my reply from LiteOn. He was no help. The site he recommended has nothing related to what I need. Not even close.
Here's the reply;

"Please visit store.litetrek.com for any accessory needs.

Thank you for contacting Lite-On Tech Support. If you reply please include all previous emails."

Best Regards,
John

Re: Replacement bezels for LiteOn drives?

My local Computer store in Maitland Australia has them if anyone really needs them they can arrange mailing them out. It would probably be well too expensive once sent to the states though. If anyone in Aust needs a bezel though you can email sales@adcom.net.au and the guys at Adcom computers will help you. They usually have black and silver (and beige bezels for all liteon drives.

Re: Replacement bezels for LiteOn drives?

i googled and only found AU and UK locations that had them for sale... might want to break out the model paint and pop off the tray and front bezel and get painting unless you are looking to cross a pond to get one.

Black bezels available here in the Netherlands. Just picked up one few weeks ago. Maybe you can arrange something with this shop.

Just a bezel. I have that drive.
If any anti-union business has bezels, I'd love to support them.
I have the 812S and the 167T DVD-ROM.
shtonkalot, I sent an e-mail to sales@adcom.net.au out of curiosity. I'm still waiting for the reply. I can't see shipping being all that costly via postal mail.

Thanks all.

We're talking about getting a bezel to replace a beige one. So you would take off the beige front and replace it with a black one. There are also some kits for certain drives that just stick to the front.

Re: Replacement bezels for LiteOn drives?

I made arrangements with Adcom Computers in Australia (Dan) and I mailed the international money order over a month ago and haven't heard a thing. I'm not getting any replies to my e-mails.
Can anyone in the area confirm he's legit?
He seemed like a decent guy when we conversed, but now it's like he dropped off the AU continent.

Thanks---

Re: Replacement bezels for LiteOn drives?

I'm thinking of buying a new drive. Maybe the NEC 3500 and sell the 812S.
Maybe.

Thanks

Re: Replacement bezels for LiteOn drives?

I'll talk to them tomorrow, when I'm downtown. See if I can rustle up some bezels from them.
I know they had them just not long ago. post a reply to this thread if you want anything asked.
I know the Dan you speak of.

shtonkalot,

Could you find out if Dan is...alive? I'd like to know why he isn't replying to any of my e-mails concerning the bezels I ordered from him.

Thanks---

Scott

Re: Replacement bezels for LiteOn drives?

OK get this, I have your bezels! Can you send me your postal address to shtonkalot@yahoo.com.au and I'll send them tomorrow.
Dan is alive and well but the computer store (ADCOM) has got crappy wireless dsl internet and apparantly they've got big problems with net connectivity!
I dunno but maybe that is something to do with email problems...?
Now Dan told me today that the boss at the store got your money order about 1-2 weeks ago and it didn't quite cover costs to post it as they had to convert it to $AUS and it cost them about $10.
However they are more than happy to send you the faceplates and don't have your address. I think you sent it with the money order or in a letter but they lost it!
I know this is a bit crazy but I know dan fairly well (regular customer) and he trusted me to send you the plates and gave me money to do so!
So just get me a mailing address and I'll try send tomorrow or definately the next day.
I find this all quite hilarious!

P.S your face plates would fit my drives... if only I had a black system!
