    Replace DVD on T3

    So, I understand it's possible to upgrade the HDD on the T3.
    Has anyone attempted to upgrade the DVD drive? (Possibly with the Panasonic UJ-85J-B Slim Slot load DVD±R/±RW/+RDL/RAM Multi Drive?)

    Also, I've heard it's possible to upgrade the RAM. Does it take standard PC DDR RAM, or does it require a low profile type RAM?

    So, I'm not sure how eager I am to open it up and upgrade these items, but I'd like to consider it. Does anyone have experience running videos from an attached USB drive? How well does it play? Also, what is the standard program for TV viewing? I'm getting an error that it doesn't detect any TV tuner hardware in SD.

    Oh, one more. It's difficult to read the lower display unless the headlights are on. Anyone have a suggestion on how to have the backlight illumination on all the time?

    Thanks!

    My unit is still open as I'm awaiting for 1gb RAM and a bigger harddrive. I'm not planning on upgrading the DVD but it seems like you can upgrade the DVD as well. It's held with three screws and a really thin ribbon cable. It's been coated with some special powder as it's easily scratched off by contact with other metal pieces. DVD in my T3 is Panasonic Model# CW-8124-B.

    The RAM spec on my T3 is: Samsung 512MB DDR PC2700 CL2.5, part no. M470L6423EN0-CB3.
