I have the above model of laptop which just recently has decided not to play anything using the dvd rw drive.Nothing will read at all no matter what medium is inserted so i guess the drive is dead.
Now i am not afraid to open up the laptop but as i've only ever worked on desktops i'm a litte wary of how to open this model up and disect the drive from it in order to replace it.Has anyone worked on this model or does anyone know where i can get a "walkthrough" listing the steps needed ? I'd prefer to have some sort of reference list rather than go in blind so to speak.I'm not afraid to open it up,simply i'd prefer to have at least a little knowledge on hand in order to get the job done.I have tried countless web sites and even emailed Medion directly for details but all i got from them was a list of FAQ's.
Any help appreciated on this matter.
Thank you.

Can't find a manual online but wait till woodchip comes online.

He has one of these and a manual, I'm sure he'll offer advice when he sees your thread.

I have just now found out hohw easy it is to remove the dvd drive in this laptop.One screw underneath the battery and two on the underside of the casing and the drive simply sldes out.
Thanks to the responder of this thread all the same.
