Need to replace CD/DVD Drive

I am trying to upgrade the failing 1X DVD R drive in my Sony PCG-FRV35 laptop (a Matshita UJ-810) to a modern DVD RW drive (8x speed, DL). Any suggestions regarding this upgrade?

You need to install windows 7 (32 bit) not 64. To change to 64 you have to make internal changes and updates to your notebook. Your notebook is set up for 32 bit systems.

Repair or replace Matshita UJ-840D drive.


The region code can only be changed up to 4 times and after the 4th change it locks onto that region.
You may be able to update the firmware to make the DVD drive region free, but if you make a mistake then you have a piece of junk.
The best solution :-
You can install software that defeats the region code, there may be some free programs on the Internet but I use RegionFree from
www.dvdidle.com it is not expensive.

i'd actually rather recommend trying another external dvd writer. The model/make doesn't matter. take it into a pc repair shop, let them connect an external dvd writer. if it works, and you buy it they won't charge extra, if it doesn't work, well, they can't charge you either
