I have a Sony Vaio VGNFE670G laptop, and the DVD drive is not working. Initially it was recognizing some CD’s and some not. Now, when I insert a CD / DVD, it just shows that the disk is present, but the contents are not shown. Called up Sony support, and tried a few remedy tricks - but nothing worked. Want to replace my DVD drive now.
Please let know how to chose an internal drive I want to buy for this laptop? The device configuration shows that I currently have a Matshita UJ-850D with IDE interface.
Will these brands be ok:
Sony NEC Optiarc 12.7mm Slim 8X DVD±R Burner E-IDE (ATAPI) model AD-7590A-01
LG IDE model GSA-T40N
Samsung IDE / ATAPI model SN-S082H
Thanks for looking into this!
