Lenovo 3000 Y410- Slot dvd upgrade

Hi,
 
I have the standard Tray load in my Y410 and want to change it to a "slot in" dvd. Are there any upgrades? I know that they sell the Y410 with the "slot in" in other countries outside of the US. Thanks.

Smiley,
 
At present, there are no Options / Upgrades sold in this regard for the Y410.   As this is officially not supported, I wouldn't advise this while under warranty. After the warranty is up, perhaps you could pick up a drive and swap it out? 
 
Perhaps someone else in the WW community has made such a swap out?

I was hoping to upgrade my slot tray load to a slot in load. I hope there is one for sale as an option to upgrade as I've seen some Y410 that already do come with it. Thanks.

Did anyone else notice this? Also, Is there an add in option for Bluetooth daughter card? If so, where can we purchase them? This is in regards to the Y410 model.

There is not Lenovo offered Bluetooth internal upgrade for the Y410 in the US market.
 
There are some external solutions offered by 3rd party manufacturers available.
 
I'll defer to community experience in terms of how well individual ones work.   Does anyone have a favorite?

Re: Lenovo 3000 Y410- Slot dvd upgrade

Hi
 
I recently purchased this laptop and it doesn't seem to read any dvds i put in the drive.  In fact, my computer doesn't even seem to recognize that I have a dvd drive.  It's like something deleted the drivers.  I don't know why this is.  Can anyone please help me?

Never mind.  Found out that my problem was that my dvd rom had actually been physically disconnected from my computer.  I don't even know how this happened.  Upon further examination, the dvd tray easily slides in/out with little resistance.  What a terrible shoddy design
