I'm looking for a dvdrw drive for a fujitsu t series lifebook. The model number has worn off. Is it true that all t series parts will fit the fujitsu t series lifebook regardless of model number?

Just replace the DVD drive with one that has good reviews for a good price. Here is an example (not necessarily the one that you would choose):

I tried pulling the DVDRW drive out of my Acer laptop and putting it into my Fujitsu laptop ,but the drive will not fit the Fujitsu DVDRW slot. The Acer looks like a SATA drive and the Fujitsu drive connection looks blocky.

Did the configuration number and serial number also wear off? It looks like the Fujitsu support site lets you search by them as well. Check the different tabs to the right of the "By model" tab.

Yes Sir! That is the problem. I really wished those stickers on the bottom were laminated or made indestructible.

I found the drive that you posted from amazon and one on ebay $10 plus shipping. I still hate taking a chance on buying something that don't match. I'm trying to contact fujistsu. I don't know how far, I will get with that.

Have you tried looking in CMOS, it should have a description there if it can at least see the drive exists. Should be written somewhere on the drive as well. The fit may come down to other factors. Maybe some disassembly is required.

I will have to check out the CMOS and see what I can find. I have not tried that.

If you have a USB socket, easier to use an external USB-DVDRW drive. Plenty around and you can use if on all your computers.

When using an external USB-DVDRW drive does the usb have to be selected? I tried making a bootable usb flash drive and could not get it to work. I could not select to boot from usb.

Check your CMOS settings. There may be an option to boot from other devices, or to boot from USB, you may also have to enable USB controller, or change UEFI to Legacy BIOS. Also, there may be an option to enable a boot menu you can start at the splash screen with one of the function keys. Or that BIOS may just not allow it.

Thanks, I was able to find out my friend has a Fujitsu T900. I did find USB Memory and USB hard drive boot option in the CMOS. I added the USB options. I will try those later and hope it works.
