Hi,
I,m not sure whether this is a desktop or laptop your refering To ??
most desktop-tower cases, will house any drive usually 5.5"
These are common purchase, the only difference being Single Or Dual Layer. depending on what you want the drive to Do. i.e read and write CDs Or And Dvds ?
If it is a desktop PC. then the connectors will be the same for all models. A 40 or 80 strand IDE Ribbon Cable. And 4 pin Molex Power Connector.
As for the Quality, i,d suggest Pioneer 112. reads and writes more formats than most DVDs.
Hope this helps you out.
Mike @ Compurepair.

Cant read DVD in my DVD Rom


you can try a laser lense disc cleaner , something similiar to

http://www.amazon.co.uk/Scotch%C2%AE-Laser-Lens-Cleaner-DVD/dp/B00006HZ2Z

I think there are better branded ones.

If that does not work then the laser lense for the dvd is not working / broken so will be easier to replace the dvd drive.

If you are using Windows XP you will need a program such as Nero to burn them. The send to DVD doesn't work in XP. It will only work on Cds. One should have came with the DVD.
