yeah i bought the laptop off ebay. it has been faulty for a year on and off and it has turned into the most tempremental drive ever, sometime it plays dvd's, then cuts out halfway thru, othertimes, doesn't recongnise them at all, oanother thing is that it doesn't show recordable dvd's as dvds, it shows them as cd-r. and it now pretty much won't read any of the dvd's that i write. so that sucks truely.
but any drive of the right size will fit you say? cool
