Hi Rickski, I have changed the drives on the a120 so many times I am sure i could do it in the dark blindfolded, it is realy easy and should only take you a few minutes.

If you can give me a couple of days i will put together an easy to follow step be step explanation. I only ask for a couple of days because I have to run and do not have the time to do it right now, sorry, but i will do it for asap.

Thanks Marina that a pretty good site and I wish I had seen it before spending the last 2 hours creating a step by step guide to removing the CD drive in a A120 with pictures and desriptions.

Anyway all done now, Rickski if you want this you can e-mail me at paulito1066@hotmail.com and I'll be more than happy to send it to you.

Hi,many thanks for all the replies,i have been to the above site but i posted after being unable to find my particular model,and knowing how some manufacturers work they change the break down procedure from model to model so have been a little hesitant in trying to follow whats there,also it doesnt say which type of drive i need.thanks again.
Greybadger will take you up on your offer of help,thank you
