Hi folks, I recall a discussion recently about replacement optical drives in Panasonic recorders, but I cannot recall the author.

IIRC, the conclusion was that if you swap an optical drive from one Panasonic DVD recorder to another model of the same production year, it would work, but if you swapped one from a different year, if would not work.

I am interested in having a spare optical drive for my E-500, and so I was wondering if it would be reasonable to expect a drive from an E-55 or E-65 to work in my E-500, since they are all 2004 recorders.

Since I already own an E-65, I could take it out of service and keep it for the day when I have to replace the optical drive on my E-500.

Any thoughts?
