Faulty notebook dvd burner

Hi I have a sony Vio laptop, the internal dvd drive is faulty and I need to replace it. Is this a big job?
Thanks AnnieB

Hello Annieb

Yes it is quite straight forward.
There are a lot of guides available if you google for it.
Most modern laptops have the same connector, or to be safe you may prefer a Sony like for example this

If you want more help, let us know the Sony model number and problem you are having

Hi sonic2171
I have a sony dvd rw dw-d56a, this drive reads ok but when I try to write to blank dvd it makes a lot of noise and then fails. I had this problem before and sony replaced the drive. but now the notebook is out of guarantee.
