Hi all,

I have a Clevo D900F series laptop and I think the bluray drive is going out. I have to insert discs multiple times for it to recognize that there is a disc in.

What are some good options?

Your only option is either http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6827136257 or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6827136263

I'd honestly get an external drive.

Thanks,

I already have too much crap in my bag. Need to replace the drive.

What came with the laptop - Matshita BD-CMB UJ130AS

there are firmware and driver updates for that drive, have you tried them?

I have not. Haven't even begun to look firmware.

If the drive has been used for a period of time and is now just starting to act up, I doubt it's firmware.

That's like saying this project I'm working on, where a microcontroller is blinking LEDs to music and one of the LEDs burns out after say a year or two of operation, that my firmware, that I haven't changed in that time frame, suddenly decides "we're not using that LED."

I mean... I guess you could blame bitrot. But OP may as well go get some lottery tickets.
