I have an Aspire E15. It did not come with a cd/ dvd player. I would like to know if it could be added. There is a place for it, it has a plate covering the area it would be.

  • Hello,

     

    Could you give me the first ten characters of the serial number (S/N)? Only the first ten.

    You'll find this information on the label sticked on the lower cover.

    I just was given the info yesterday, being it's not just a pop it in n it's works kind of thing, (lol) I am going to bring mine into Best Buy and allow them to install all that's necessary. Brackets and all the other necessities are more than I am comfortable doing in a slim laptop as compared to a tower.

    Hello Benjamin,

     

    No you can install an ODD unit on your laptop. This one has the motherboard, upper and lower cases than

    Aspire E5-521-8948 (with DVD unit). These are the same parts that I've indicated in my previous reply (JTF).

    Remove the dummy and check if there is a sata connector inside. But if it is you still have to try, as i experienced with another desktop from Acer.

    Do all Acer Aspire E15 motherboards support addition of DVD drive ?

    If not, is there any way to verify if my motherboard can support adding the DVD Drive without taking it apart ?

  • dolbydigitaldolbydigital Member Posts: 1

    Hi I have the model ES1-531-C6FQ and I know that the CD/DVD drive is supported because I tested it with anothe slim drive from Dell, but I would like to have the exact part numbers to order.

    Thanks.

    Been a while and hadn't gotten to try the upgrade yet - gave the laptop to my son. now want to try again.

    What i have trouble understanding is the point of the bracket. Do i have to disassemble the laptop to put the bracket in place or does it bolt on to the optical drive and snap on place or what?

    Searched the web but cannot find an image of the bracket in place on any of the ES1-51x videos/pics i can find.

    Thanks in advance?
