Installing CD drive into laptop

  malador55 16:45 26 Feb 04

Could someone advise me please, i have purchased a cd drive for my IBM Thinkpad 365x laptop. I have bought it to replace the floppy drive, but i would like some assistance in fitting as i have never done something like this before. I cant see any apparent screws to take it apart. I hope someone can help me, i am going out for a couple of hours but i will be back on later. I would appreciate any help given.

You cannot us a standard CD-Rom drive in a Laptop, You need a external USB plug in

woodchip, thanks for replying. Sorry i forgot to mention it is a proper cd drive made for the IBM Thinkpad 365x and not a normal cd drive.

Thanks for the link Belatucadrus but it doesn't seem to give me basic info on fitting it in and taking out the floppy drive.
