Add optical drive to Lenovo IdeaPad 520 15IKB

2017-11-27, 12:37 PM

Hi,

 

I've recently bought online a Lenovo IdeaPad 520-15IKB, i7-8550U Kaby Lake R, 15.6" Full HD, IPS, 4 GB, 2 TB HDD, nVIDIA GeForce MX150 4GB. Apparently, the laptop has no optical drive installed (see attached image below), despite the images on the website which showed an optical drive on the right side.

 

I'd like to know if I can use any of the optical drives listed on the parts lookup page to install to this laptop. If yes, do I need a caddy to hold the optical drive?

 

Thanks,
Gabriel

Hi gabrielivascu,

 

Greetings.

 

Using the parts lookup page would be a good source of searching compatible parts for similar machine type 81BF.

If you can share your machine model number for us to check further or privately send the serial number to me if needed.

 

Take note of the ODD daughter board (example part number 5C50N86565 ODD BOARD NSB241 L80XL) if available on your system too. Part number 5B40L35764 ODD BRACKET L80SL and also check for the ODD bezel if needed.

 

Here is the service training module for disassembly and review.

 

Update us soon as convenient.

 

Regards

Hi gabrielivascu,

 

Model name: 81BF MTM: 81BF004NRI
520-15IKB (Type 81BF) Laptop (ideapad) - Type 81BF - Model 81BF004NRI

 

Using your machine information from parts lookup, I was not able to verify the ODD daughterboard to connect the ODD so I would rather that you check it physically instead.

 

 

Click here to view the optical drive connector for reference.

 

Regards

@ADAH I actually gave up on this and bought an external optical drive, so I can't really answer your question. (Sorry for not updating the post.)

 

Maybe @spidey101 will be able to help you.

Hi ADAH,

 

Greetings.

 

You should check for available parts :

5DX0J464881 HLDS GUE0N 9.0mm internal CD/DVD

5C50N86565 ODD BOARD NSB241 L80XL

90205118 ACLU1ScrewD-C/D-KB/ODD-D-MB-KB/FAN

 

Using machine type 81BF on parts lookup will help you check subsitutes too.

 

Regards
