I was gunna put this in the general hardware forum, but I thought maybe I'd get lucky and someone here might have an extra laptop dvd/cd drive sittin aroun :rolleyes:

The drive on my hp ze5500 just pooped out. It will only read manufactured cds/dvds. In addition to that, I can't burn with it anymore either. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before it wont read anything at all :thumbdwn:

You guys know of a place to buy affordable laptop drive replacements? I'm gunna go make the rounds online and see what I can dig up, but if anyone has any ideas please let me know.

I have a laptop dvdrom/dcrw drive from a gateway 450 series laptop. The faceplate is removable, and you can use your current drive's ide adaptor. LMK if you are interested via email at ss284@mindspring.com, Id like to get around $40 shipped for it.
