    Red face My G752VT optical drive went rogue

    Hello, my Laptop is a Rog G752VT - GC040T. Bought in 2016. Since the 7th of June my optical drive isn't working anymore. It's still visible in file explorer and device manager showing no issue. But if I try to insert a CD, DVD or bluray, it tries loading them but then nothing happens. What can I do to fix it??? Thanks

    OK. Is it easy to replace an optical drive in a laptop? Is there a tutorial for ROG laptops?

    Thanks a lot!

    I also found this one :

    And in the following video, the guy takes off the Optical drive :

    Also this video could help maybe :

    It seems easy
    But I was wondering what kind of Optical drive should I purchase? Can I buy any slim internal burner ? Or is there a special drive format I should care about?

    Thanks
    DS
