    Hello there,

    the optical drive of my Qosmio G 50 is not working properly anymore, it reads only some movie-DVDs, but sadly no videogameDVDs at all, so I cannot instal any games.
    The warranty has already expired too. So I wanted to ask if it is possible to change the drive myself, if it is then how should I do it, and if by doing it would the laptop be in
    serious risk of getting damaged?

    I would be very thankful for every tip and every help you guys can give me!!!

    Best regards,
    a.z.

    Hi

    In different cases the ODD replacement is not very tricky.

    If you want you can check this forum category.
    Here you can find some videos how to replace the ODD on different notebook models:

    Here is also a nice Youtube channel which provides the instructions how to replace the ODD:

    But maybe the ODD laser lens is dirty. In my case I could solve similar issue cleaning the laser lens using a cotton-wool tip and alcohol.
    But be careful doing this!

    On Qosmio G50 optical disc drive is secured with two screws. One is placed under the keyboard and the second on the bottom side near the ODD door.

    Can you do this alone?

    As Paolo wrote maybe you should try to clean lens at first. Maybe it will help to get it working again.
