Install a roxio cd into my laptop

You need a replacement CD drive most likely.

The 5300 can be swapped for almost any generic laptop optical drive. I would pick one up from or they have new drives cheap.

Then just unscrew the plastic mounting rails attached to the side and back of the drive, swap them over to the new drive and go!
