Replace Broken Slot load DVD+/-RW/CD drive - DELL XPS M1530



Hi There,

Does anyone know what Slot load DVD/CD drive could be used to replace the one which is broken in my - DELL XPS M1530 (running Windows 7), currently listed as Internal 8X DVD+/-RW Combination Drive with dual layer write capabilities? Please, it has been broken for well over a year now but recently with additional travelling for work the external usb powered drive is proving to be a little inconvenient so would like to replace it.
Many thanks in advanced for the advice.

Regards Barb.
