I’ve had to open this thread here as I was getting a distinct lack of replies in an earlier thread (below).
I would’ve tried using the forum Search option but I kept getting a “Page cannot be displayed” error. :a
Anyway, I just want to know if it’s possible to take apart a retail LG External DVD Rewriter (such as the GSA 5163D and the GSA 5169D) and use it as an Internal drive.
Is it possible? It’s just that I can’t seem to see any screws on the External Enclosure. I was hoping someone here would know how to take them apart.
And also, will there be any issues with the firmware? I’m guessing the drive will still be recognised by Windows as a GSA 5163D/GSA 5169D.
Is it ok to use a drive that was manufactured as an External model and use it Internally? Has anyone tried anything like this before?
Your help will be much appreciated.
