Can I replace or upgrade the internal CDROM drive in a notebook with a DVD Drive?

Applicable Products and Categories of This Article

The following notebooks that have removable internal CDROM drives will not accept a DVD drive: PCG 705 707 717 719 723 729C 731 735 808

A DVD drive will not play a movie without the additional MPEG2 decoder hardware. Software DVD decoder requires 300 Mhz or faster Pentium II. For this reason we do not offer a DVD option on previous models.
