I need a computer guru

I knocked my cd tray off track (lite-on ltr 48246s) and I can’t fix it. If i buy a new one…does it have to be the same model? I have an emachine computer. are other models compatible with my machine?

HELP


#2

Many, many drives will be compatible. Spend some time here and at videohelp and you should be able to get what you need for a lot less than at a local store. I suggest newegg.com for top quality service and price.


#3

but is it something i can fix myself or should I go ahead and buy a new one?

I believe what chas0039 was saying is you can replace your drive and by looking around the forum you can get and idea of a drive to buy.
Also looking around the forum you can find help on how to do it.
Good luck.

@ sissy1215
Go ahead and take it apart, knowing that if it ends in disaster, a new one will be easy to install yourself and relatively inexpensive…the hardest part will be deciding which one to get :wink:


#6

thanks to all of you…i went ahead and purchased another one and installed it. It’s working fine. patting myself on the back. you guys were a big help

Did you consider replacing it with a DVD writer - the price of them now, it’s hardly worth using anything less, unless the few better tricks of some CD-RW drives (Mount Rainier, accurate EFM) are needed
