    I have contacted an Acer technician. I hope he can help you (not the same department).

    I understand your frustation ... we have not this problem in Europe.

    I was just told by the parts department that there is no way to connect a drive to the motherboard, despite the list you gave me. Which is it, is it possible to add a drive or not?

  • Hello,

     

    Strange! This german model is equipped with the same motherboard and it has an ODD module.

    You can check yourself:

    1. Remove the screw from the base cover and located in the axle of the dummy ODD
    2. Remove the dummy ODD
    3. Check if you see a connector in the bottom and on the motherboard.

    I'm 100% sure you'll find a connector.

    I called yesterday and they said I could not add a drive. I called again today and they did not recognize these part numbers. This is very frustrating, all I want to do is buy parts for my new laptop.
