Jason, you can reply here in the thread, no need to send me a pm with information.
You say your drive is a Matshita UJDA740 dvd/cdrw. Replacing notebook drives can be tricky, because not all of them are interchangeable. Your best bet would be to contact Toshiba support.
Matshita drives are NOT well regarded by the way, and if they offer to replace it with another Matshita for an exorbitant fee, you will be much better off using an external drive.
