Hi, I have a Lenovo ideapad 300-15ISK with a dummy OPTICAL drive. It has got windows 10 OS. Any Lenovo recommended optical drive that I can buy and fix into the dummy OPTICAL drive? What to make sure that I can integrate (install) the new optical drive before I buy the drive? Any software needs to be downloaded to make sure the optical driver can be worked out?
All advices are appreciable

Optical drive replacement steps here on page 44.
Drivers are provided innately by Windows itself so it would be immediately detected by both BIOS and Windows as soon as properly seated.
Hope this help answer your query.

Hi there - I bought an Ideapad 320 and decided to replace the dummy disc drive with an optical disc drive. I now have an optical disc drive (FRU No. 5DX0J46488) but lamentably this didn't come with any bezel. The manual indicates that the following are appropriate: ODD BEZEL L80XK WH (P/N 5B30N82354); ODD BEZEL L80XK CG (P/N 5B30N82265); or ODD BEZEL L80XK IB (P/N 5B30N82326). However, none of these are available on the Lenovo Service Shop site. How do I get hold of these!? Any help would be much appreciated!
