    Dvd Drive Replacement

    The Dvd drive in my Dell Dimension 5000 (bought in the year 2005) no longer records and I believe requires replacement.

    Can someone tell me the cheapest place to go to find a replacement.

    Thanks!

    Have you tried cleaning it first ?

    what colour do you need, try these sites scan.co.uk or ebuyer.com I would recommend pioneer dvd recordersin my opinion, their copies will work on any dvd player and are @ £17.
    to fit one is a peice of cake. they are held with 2-4 small screws and have a data and power cable plugged in teh back . all should slot out / i within 5-10 mins. and no drivers are needed.

    Not tried it!

    Do I need to open the drive up to clean it or is there an easier way.

    £15.99 for the one above

    my laptop dvd drive is starting to go a bit, are these more expensive to replace?

    i still have warrenty for about a month, but it works most of the time, it's only sometimes that it doesn't work, can i claim anything on this?
