Help with laptop dvd drive please

Hi! I have got a Packard Bell Easynote with a slim line Quanta sbw 242b combo cd/dvd drive that has gone dead! I would like to replace this drive with a dvd writer has anyone any idea which drive I could use that will fit this laptop.
Many Thanks

Apart from drive’s quality/facilities it will depend on your laptop configuration (is it set as master or slave) and caracteristics (including available slot space/dimensions), so the best thing to do is to look around for specifications and check compatibility after you have a short list of possible choices.

can’t find any info around, I have tried emailing Packard Bell several times (JOKE), I spoke to someone at a computer store on the net who said that most of the later models were compatible so I ordered a Nec nd6750a, anyway if it don’t work they will take it back. Will let you know how I get on!!

Got The Nec today, Dropped in no prob, runs GREAT!
Many Thanks

NECs are very good notebook burners in my opinion. LGs are good as well.
