How do you remove CD drive from dell inspiron 2200?
Flip the laptop over so that the rubber feet are facing up. Remove the screw in the center of the laptop with the picture of a lock near it. This is the only thing keeping the cdrom drive from sliding out of the laptop. If it doesn't come out easily, you may need to power up the laptop, open up the cdrom tray, power off the laptop (while the cdrom tray is still open) then repeat procedure above - however, you'll now have the cdrom tray to use as a handle to pull out the entire cdrom drive.

What is the difference between a CD ROM and a CD R?
CDROM means Compact Disc Read Only Memory which means once software is burnt/written to a CD you can only "read" the software from the disc. Also technically when you say CDROM you are talking about the CD drive in your computer. You can only "read" data from a CD in a CDROM. a CDR is Compact Disc Recordable which is a blank CD that will allow you to use your computers CD Burner to copy/burn files from your PC to the disc. So CDROM = "You can only Read data from a CD" & CD-R = "You can record/burn files and software to a CD"
