Reuse the enclosure of old external drive?

I bought an external CDRW DVD combo drive 2 years ago, now i wonder if i can replace the combo drive with a new DVD-RW drive, Ive checked the chipset of the enclosure and it is NEC D720130 ( with 12/480 Mbps data rate.

Want to know if the new DVD-RW (such as LG GSA4167BB 16x Dual layer) drive will be compatible with the chipset or can achieve maximum performance or not.
