its 4.5 cm........
I checked NEC's website and they have 4.2cm listed as height of drives, maybe just inaccurate measurements. You should be fine with any dvd drive.
While Sony does have some proprietary all-in-one units, NF is pretty much on the mark. Due to the size of the CD/DVD discs, there are certain specifications that have to be followed. Secondly, Sony isn't known for pulling some weird proprietary crap like Dell. I "highly* doubt Sony came up with a non-standard drive, especially considering they make CD and DVD drive kits available on retail shelves.
Am still none the wiser :x:
I Bought a samsung dvd-rw internal drive thinking that the drive would fit the tower...but hence no...length of the sony vaio drive is 5.25, so had to return it...also tried another one but again the same problem.....it is driving me :swear: mad.....
Maybe you should consider getting a standard compatible case instead.
is it one of those vaio computers where the computer is built into the monitor case behind it? if so then it could be tricky
I have a Sony Vaio sitting right beside me. I took the drives out of it and put them into this computer. I took an old one and put it into the Vaio. So unless they have changed the Vaios theya re standard size. And what do you mean by the drive is 5.25" long?
Sorry i meant the width of the drive is 5.25"
then it shouldn't be a problem, that is the standard size for a cd/dvd drive, i really dont see whats wrong
Same here, are you sure that there isn't something else blocking the drive, a screw, a piece of metal sticking out, a bent case, etc?
yeah it should just slot in the fix with screws (unless it has drive rails in which case they will screw on to the drive then it will slide and lock into place in the case) like ThePenguinCometh said look for things getting in the way
Separate names with a comma.
