Right, I have a broken internal DVD drive. Not suprisingly on an Acer laptop.
I have a USB external DVD-RW drive - liteon SOSW-852S
Is there anyway I can mod this drive to work internally on my laptop? like either a hard bridge mod internally on the drive or a FW, I’ve searched, but all the information does not answer what I ned to know.
I have tried the simple things like taking it out the caddy and putting it into the laptop drive bay, but it just will not boot. It hangs on the bios screen.
I have tried to flash it with more upgraded FW but it still does the same.
I only ask as its a proper pain to carry around an extra power cord and USB cable, makes it all simpler having it internal in the empty space.
Or do I have more underlaying problems with my DVD bay, its an ACER 5101. Had the dreaded matshita dvd (he actually did with this drive )
