Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario C500t Notebook ?

The CD drive in my sister's compaq presario c500 died...can i take the CD/DVD burner out of a toshiba satellite and put it in her compaq?

Answers :

There is no real standard for laptop CD/ROMs I have seen some mount with screws and some that pop out with a tab. I am almost sure it will not work. You can either get an external USB cd from Wallmart or spend the money to get a replacement from the manufacturer.
