akai mpc5000 mainIn this video we walk through how to install or replace the CDM25 DVD-ROM drive in an Akai Professional MPC500 or MPC2500. 

The plug-and-play DVD drive comes right out with no tools, and can be swapped out in about 2 minutes.  Just a screw driver is needed to open the access panel.

Replacement CDM25 DVD-ROM drives are available right from the Akai Professional Parts Department (parts@inmusicbrands.com, 401-658-4032 x1403), or from any number of third-party resellers.
