What drive is in it now?


It currently has a Matshita UJ-850S ATA drive.


The reason I ask is I have a GMA-4082N and it is ok but I only use it on the road. For home use I use a external burner via a firewire enclosure cheaper and better than an internal lappy drive. But the LG is a better drive than the Matshita drive by far. The lg will fit and work fine except for the bezel (not a big deal).
