Board Faulty On Dvd Drive With Working Laser - Can I Swap the Board?


Recommended Posts

Yep you can swap the PCB's as long as same  make and model DVD's or at least the same laser part number.

A word of caution as the laser pickup can be static sensitive so some caution when handling them (disconecting and reconecting).

Normaly you should put a blob of solder on the protect pads DVD has two CD has only one before disconecting it and then remove the solder when it's reconected  but I normaly don't bother.

While you have it apart clean the lens use a cotton bud moistened  wuth isprinol alcohol

      Hi folks,
      I know what you're gonna say. And you're probably right... but...
      I've just dropped about £50 (inc delivery) on a ZALMAN ZM-VE200 SE...
      This is a hard drive caddy, USB powered, with eSATA data connection, that will spoof as an optical drive, and let you mount .iso files stored on an internal SATA drive.
      It was probably a waste of money, and my 2TB drive is perfectly happy... BUT I wanna give it a go!
      Hardmodded, running EvoX m8+ (with LBA48 and F&G).
      eSATA to sata (HDD gender not mobo gender) cable ordered.
      Gonna use a SATA to IDE adapter (with a SLAVE switch).
      Gonna try leaving the OGXbox DVD drive in place (with a Xbox disc in the drive, just disconnect the IDE), and connecting the IDE to the Zalman (via the eSATA to SATA, SATA to IDE SLAVE adapter - yuk!)
      I'm gonna power the SATA to IDE adapter via a molex splitter, and power the ZALMAN via an external USB brick.
       
      It probably won't work, but... it... might????????
      What's your thoughts anyone?
      Wish me luck - I'll report back in a couple of months when all the cables and crap arrive from China into brexit-bound UK and when I get a couple of hours away from real life to mess around with it all...

      Hey so I have a 1.0 and the main fan header isn't working. Can I just replace the mosfet or is there a greater issue?
