Thread: Re: Question about CD/DVD drive for Portege M400

  1. Question about CD/DVD drive for Portege M400
    Join Date
    Nov 2008
    I have a Portege M100 - and the Cd Rom drive is not working.

    Whenever I put in a disc I can just hear the motor spinning the drive but the computer is not picking up the disc. Device Manager picks up no faults.

    There doesn't seem to be any firmware for sorting this (or am I wrong).

    I saw a DVD drive for an M400 on ebay and wondered if that would fit my M100.

    Before I buy it I wondered if anyone knew if it would be compatible. It seems to be correct dimensions wise, but wondered if my XP Portege M100 would be able to use it.

    The description for the drive that I'd like to put into the M100 is below:

    Many thanks for your time. :)

    According userís manuals document for Portege M100 two optical disc drivers are compatible with your Portege M100L:
    TOSHIBA SD-C2612
    TEAC DW-224E

    So if you want to have good working drive obtain one of them.
