    Hi there,

    Not sure if this is the right place to be asking, but I've tried a few forums and with not much joy.

    Here goes, I want to upgrade the DVD writer in my laptop (currently only 1x, pah!). I've been quoted £100 for an 8x and fitting (i think).

    Thing is, they look like they just plug onto the motherboard and so would be quite easy to do myself, so I'm after a source for DVD writers for notebooks. Tried a few variations in google, but to no avail.

    please can someone help? it would me much appreciated!

    What type of laptop is it - I'd be surprised if these things are standard.

    it's a packard bell, been told that drives are proprietry and I'd have to try & get one from PC world or something, but then I've also heard that they're standard and fairly interchangable. there's a few drives on ebay, ho hum.
