This is a short "HowTo" on how to remove and replace a DVD ROM / Burner on the Toshiba Satellite Pro L300D.

  • Step 0: Release the DVD tray so its slightly open, either when powered on, or with the emergency eject (small hole beside the open/close button on the DVD unit). Remove the battery pack (for security reasons).
  • Step 1: Remove the memory cover at the base (in the center of the base chassis) with one phillips head screw.
  • Step 2: With the laptop lying upsidedown with the front towards you, notice a black phillips screw to the left cover base, slightly offset from the middle. Remove this.
  • Step 3: Grip the DVD units tray on each side and pull gently straight outward and it will release from SATA connectors and easily slided out.
  • Step 4: Remove the small bracket with the screw hole by unscrewing 2 very small phillips head screws. Mount the bracket on the new DVD unit and slide the unit in, and apply the fastening screw again.
  • Step 5: Put the memory base cover back on and apply the phillips screw you removed initially.
