Toshiba Satellite U305-S2808 DVD replacement?

\015 Where can I buy or what kind of cd/dvd player will fit into a Satellite U305? I need to replace it and the cheapest way? Is it a simple removal and install?\015

Answers :

Optical drive removal varies among notebooks. Some have quick-release gadgets, which may be on the bottom of the notebook or in the memory compartment. Some have screws that need to be removed from the notebook bottom. On my Satellite Pro 6000, it's on the bottom, aligned with the drive, but halfway to the other side of the case. If this is the case, pop it out. Get the model number off of the drive; you may have to replace it with the same one. While most optical drive chassis are standard, the drawer fronts are different, and not necessarily exchangeable.

The DVD drive (UJ-811B) failed in my Toshiba Satellite P25-S609. I replaced it with a UJ-841S from a Toshiba Satellite M45. The drive seems to work fine once WinXP is running, but My BIOS won't boot from it. I don't see a message from BIOS saying that it found the DVD drive, so I think it won't boot because the BIOS doesn't see it. I flashed the P25 to the latest BIOS and was considering flashing the DVD drive. I read that the Toshiba's ise an inverted cable select (CS), so I need to use a T
