The earlier post didn't show DVD Drives from Funai hard drive models. My other posts have photos of DVD Drives found in Magavox 2080 and 2160 models.
The "L" number is the DVD Drive's serial number found on the barcode label on the side of the DVD Drive case.
The DVD Drive model number is usually found on a sticker on the back of the DVD Drive, as seen in the first photo of a model N78F8EUN DVD Drive in my 2160 of December 2008 manufacture. Notice that the DVD Drive itself was manufactured on 5 December 2008. The second photo shows the serial number of that DVD Drive.
8X DVD Drives are unique to the 2160, 2160A, 513 and 515 models. The 3575, 3576 and 2180 had 4X DVD Drives.
In other posts I've attached photos of various Funai-manufactured DVD Drives for "standard" DVD Recorders, i.e., those without hard drives.
