HP DVD/CDRW Combo Drive

I have recently come across a drive that came out of an HP pc. It had a DVD Combo drive in it. I was wondering if anyone new who typically manufacture’s the optical drives for HP. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.

It could be several manufacturers since it tends to change from time to time. Typical manufacturers would be:

  • LiteOn
  • NEC
  • Samsung
  • Toshiba

Thank you…Liteon would be fantastic…I am a huge fan. Is there any indication on the drive itself that would tell me? I am just mainly curious but partly do not want to waste my time putting a piece of crap in my machine…Thanks again.
