Lie On 5005 DVD Drive



Folks, With all the problems around this unit, has anyone tried buying and replacing the DVD drive unit when they eventually get drive read / write failures, (which sounds inevitable given time).
If so, how much does a drive unit cost? Are they easy to replace? Is there a better quality drive unit that is compatible?

I’m assuming they should be no more difficult to replace than a VHS recorder head and they are easier than you would think to replace. Having said that, it is no longer cost effective to replace Video recorder heads, but maybe it is cost effective to replace a DVD drive unit.


OK I see there is a whole section on replacing drives in these units. I’ll take a look at that.
