I have a Toshiban Equium A80 laptop where the DVD burner has expired (not software problem) - not having much experience on laptops, is it practcal to try a drive replacement rather than lugging an external drive around (ie is it easy to remove and replace)?

The drive in question is a mat****a uj 830s. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

if your lucky it should be a case of pressing a button or releasing a catch and the drive should slide out. if not call toshiba and they'll be able to point you in the right direction.

Oh and Matu****a == Panasonic :)

Also Hi EP and people. I found this place again while looking through a oooollllllldddd backup. I have filled over 10TB and was looking at my collection of antiques. Any bids on the 500Mhz Win 95 fix?
Any of the SP crew still out there?

Impressed you have kept this alive this long EP! So many sites have come and gone. :(

Just did some crude math and I apparently joined almost 18yrs ago, how is that possible???
