Asus N55s: Removing optical drive?
Feb 19, 2013, 2:09 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).

Im sure theres some videos online. You will most likely have to take the computer apart.

There are no videos on YouTube- that was the first thing i did - research and Google to see if anyone had put videos online and have found nothing. Hence posting this question.
I'm aware i may need to take it apart- that's the question, how exactly do i access it?
