Asus N55s: Removing optical drive? Tags: Asus Optical Media Laptops Last response: February 19, 2013 10:51 PM in Laptops & Notebooks Share smiley335 February 19, 2013 2:09:01 PM Can anybody tell me how i remove the optical drive from the Asus N55s? I'm wanting to replace it with the original HD after swapping that out for a SSD. Looked in the manual, and can't find where i take the optical caddy out (it's meant to be a screw you take out apparently). Help appreciated.
