Need new DVD reader for home theatre pc

#1

My DVD reader in my HTPC has gone belly up and is failing to read discs, its pretty old now (Creative 5x DVD) but has served me well. I now need to replace it and I would like to do replace it with something that is able to be quiet when playing DVD or CDRs. This would preferably activated by hardware automatically rather than through a software ‘patch’ like CD-Bremse.
The drive should also be able to read all the major formats (CD, CDR, CDRW, DVD, DVD+R, DVDRW).

Other than that it just needs to be tray loading and connected via IDE and work under WinXP.

thanks in advance
Ian

Try to find a Toshiba 1712 DVD-rom drive - should suit all your needs - there is also hacked firmware available for it that will give you max readspeeds-
