Updating CD-ROM

Greetings!

I am currently running a Compaq Presario SR1230NX, AMD Athlon 3200+ with two drives:

  1. Lite-On DVDRW SOHW-832S, and
  2. ASUS CD-5480/AH

Both drives are working fine but the ASUS CD-540/AH has problems reading and writing onto certain disks. I’m wondering if I could simply replace/update this drive for a newer, faster one? And would it simply be a matter of taking one out and installing a newer one?

Thanks in advance.

I’m sorry, I shouldn’t post when my 2 year old is sitting on my lap.

My CD ROM will not “READ” certain CD’s which I have burned on my burner.
