Changing Stock CD to Bluray

Recommended Posts

Hi again guys, I just found out that you can change the stock cd drive to a blu ray drive on the Asus g75vw, and maybe others (depending on the size of your drive). But here is the link to the drive that I found compatible, I will order it sometime soon and post a full review and how-to later on....

Know of any place not on ebay that you can buy this?

Depends on your location, for latin america you could try mercado libre or at any distributor at your local city. Whats the country you wish to send it? maybe a simple google search with the name of the device and your country could bring something up

Ooo nice! I am going to upgrade to an SSD first, though. Best Buy gave me a 5200RPM or so drive...

I looked at google for the drive that this person is buying but I'm really skeptic to buy without knowing for sure that it will fit and work. I'm also in the US.

Its very easy to check, simply use a program to find the type of drive you have, then search for it online and check the specs. There should be height, weight, width and everything you need to be able to compare it to other drives and check that it fits.

For Example:

My drive is HL-DT-ST- DVDRAM GT51N

after searching around I found this HL Data Storage GT51N Super Multi DVD ReWriter Laptop Notebook SATA dvdrw drive | eBay

and what do you know... my drive is exaclty that measurements...so with this now I can be SURE it will fit

Once you buy the new drive, do you just pop the plastic cover off the stock drive and place it on the new one? I'm a stickler for making sure any upgrade matches the rest of the system.

This is the only thing that I am unsure about... because I can see there is a small screw on the bottom part of the cd drive(original) that removes the cover, but I dont know if the one you buy would have the same screw space for the cover

      Hey everyone, just a question would anybody know where/how I could get a modded bios for a G75VW so I can get a 670MX to work in it? Any help would be appreciated!

      So basically my friend starts texting me one night asking if I wanted a broken laptop. Of course I say yes because I love the challenge of trying to fix broken tech. What he gave me was a G75VW, at first I was like wtf. My friend just handed me a gaming laptop. Not to mention this was in school so imagine having to shove one of those large things in your backpack. So I asked him where he got it and why was he giving it to me. It turns out my friends brother found it while he was dumpster diving and he was just going to take the screen and chuck the rest, but he never got around to it and was trying to throw it away when my friend saw it. So when I got it he told me it crashes when trying to turn on and that he couldn't get it to work. When I got it I had thought it had nothing in it expect the Mobo, it was also missing the back panels and the hard drives. But to my surprise whoever scrapped this thing didn't go under the keyboard because 8gb of ram and the cpu/gpu were still there. So I only had to buy a hard drive, ssd, and a power supply. So about 118$ in total. And most games I play run on it great. Mostly Rainbow Six Siege which runs on medium at 60fps great. And thats how I got a G75VW for almost free  thanks for reading.

      Hi Guys,
       
      Im looking to possibly get a new laptop, but was wondering what laptops you guys would suggest for gaming and that doesn't have hardware whitelisting so I can update my wifi card and other hardware in the future. I heard that Asus doesn't lock down there hardware with a white list. My current laptop, Lenovo Y500 Ideapad, has a white list and im not able to swap out the wifi card because of it. Let me know what you guys think.

      Would it be remotely possible to put a newer graphics card in a G75VW?
