Wow. According to this..there IS no optical drive or in other words, NO CD/DVD drive.
I should of checked it out closer..
Now on the E1-531 there IS a DVD writer, but not on the 522 from what I can tell from
the data sheets. Below is for the 531.
You may be able to have it open by itself. If you're able to, boot up to
the desktop page. Click on "Computer" in start menu > RIGHT CLICK
DVD DRIVE. CLICK "EJECT". If all worked right, the optical door should
pop open !
If you are running Windows 7 it's easy to get to DVD via "COMPUTER"
in the start menu. If running Windows 8, move over to the right side
of the screen, click search, and type in DVD. It should show up and
then you can right click to "eject"
To open it manually stick a paper clip into the hole right next to the eject button. There will be a little resistance because this is a manual release to open it.
no manual release button looked for weeks!
The Eject on the disktop was grey and did not repond to the mouse
I could have sworn the display had an open drive...but maybe they sold me the wrong version.. Looked up your link and it seems I have the wrong one Got so pulled in by the storage I didnt think to look up this one fact.. Thanks forthe help! I need a disk drive and this one wont do. Still have time to return it and exchange. THANK YOU!!
Its too bad the model you bought doesn't have the features you wanted but the
good news is that you have time to return it for the model you need.
Glad I was able to a bit, and you're most welcome !
Is it possible to get a disk drive installed on this model?
I for one don't know if one could be installed INSIDE the unit as the motherboard may not
have a serial connection built into it to accept the optical drives connection, nor there may
not be room inside for the drive....but....you DO have an option and that would be an external
slim line CD-DVD burner connected via USB 2.0. Here is one that may meet your needs.
No CD/DVD. You got ripped off.
i know this model has no dvd drive. and i could use an external drive. but this model has the sata place to install a drive which would be a thin drive if i could find one. does anyone know where to get one
theres no button on the outside to press to open the disk drive i went online checked out the owners manual
I see pretty consistent traffic to this thread so I'd like to provide a bit of clarification.
Here is a list of US units that I was able to locate just to show that there are some without the DVD drive and many with, you'll need to check the specification on our site as well as the retailer when looking to purchase.
Hope this helps,
