Lenovo B50-45 optical drive

I bought a Lenovo B50-45 but it came without an optical drive. 

 

What is the model number(s) of a drive that will work in it? 

 

It has a plastic blank in it now so I will also need the plastic front part with the button. 

 

Thanks

Hi CrazyOneToo

 

Welcome to the Community Forums. 

 

Checking with FRU parts list (page71) of the hardware manual for B50-70:

 

12 ODD, 9.0mm Tray-in Rambo, HLDS GUA0N Part number: 25215010 
12 ODD, 9.0mm Tray-in Rambo, PLDS DA-8A5SH Part number: 25213110

12 ODD, 9.0mm Tray-in Rambo, QSI UJ8FBS Part number: 25215312
12 ODD, 9.0mm Tray-in Rambo, TSST SU-228FB Part number: 25215832

 

 

The blank plastic would be the dummy card as Optical Drive front bezel comes with the DVD drive when ordered.

Steps are shown in the same manual at page 34. Tou may likewise check for the ODD board (page47) that it would connect with if needed before purchase.

 

Hope this help answer your query.

 

Regards

I'm not sure it that answers my question. Do you mean any 1 of those 4 part numbers will fit and work in my B50-45 laptop?

Hi CrazyOneToo

 

Greetings.

 

Listed above is the model number for recommended optical drive.

Yes, any of those four would work as it was certified specific to your machine using the part number 25215010, 25213110, 25215312, 25215832 for OEM parts. 

 

Lenovo encompass here can provide you availability and cost of choosing original Lenovo parts that you can also compare with other resellers like eBay and Amazon using either a part number or manufacturer code (HLDS GUA0N, PLDS DA-8A5SH, QSI UJ8FBS, TSST SU-228FB)

 

If you need the optical drive bezel, verify with the sales personnel if included.

 

Regards

Re: Lenovo B50-45 optical drive

Is there a number for the faceplate that has the eject button on it? I purchased a dvd optical drive number 25215312 and it came with a faceplate but doesn't seem like it matches up with my laptop. In the listing it said G50 but had the 25215312 number on it. It seems to be way to far sunk in. On all my other past laptops the cd/dvd was somewhat flush fitting on the exterior. And also bezel does not have same texture as the laptop. I added some pics. Two are of the drive alone. One is of drive almost installed with gap. One is with little mounting tab on end removed (and no way to secure it in the laptop) and shows large difference in how it fits into laptop. Ideas????

Re: Lenovo B50-45 optical drive

Dear CrazyOneToo:  I have the same computer Lenovo B50-45 that had no Optical Drive.  I purchased an Optical Drive and I have the same problem you have posted with the optical drive/bezel having a gap.  I see it's been awhile since your post and was wondering if you got it solved and what Optical Drive part # did you get to fit/work and with a bezel.  If you ordered the bezel separate who/part # for that too!  I'm trying to do this for my sister and it's ending up expensive testing out parts!  Thank you for your time!

Re: Lenovo B50-45 optical drive - THIS ONE FITS!!

THIS ONE FITS!!   I found a used Lenovo B50-45 optical drive from a Lenovo laptop that fits perfect in my laptop that I had purchased without an optical drive in 2014 (and had a black plastic blank in its empty spot) and have been searching and trying all the product numbers offered which didnt work out.  Had the same problems mentioned above.  My optical drive was taken out of an actual Lenovo B50-45 so I felt this one HAS TO FIT!  And it did fit perfect!  Attached copies of pictures of the optical drive giving you all the info you need.  20181105_B50-45 Optical Drive that worked-3x25.jpgBEZEL SIDE with dash on button!B50-45 Optical Drive that worked8x20.jpgLenovo B50-45 Optical Drive that fitsEnjoy the end of the long long search!
