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.

You would probably be better off contacting Dell directly about a replacement drive, but a quick Google search shows this: http://www.parts-people.com/index.php?action=item&id=5358
I’ve never ordered anything from them, so caveat emptor.

Dell offers some instructions on how to replace the drive: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/xpsM1530/en/SM/optical.htm#wp1038494
