    I take it you mean a desktop....in this case there you go, you won't need a Dell part

    The last thing you want is to fit a Dell drive, they are garbage. Good drives, usually NEC destroyed by Dell firmware. Look on sites such a SVP, some good drives by LG or Samsung you can swap straight into place at very reasonable prices.

    Play.com do some good LG Drives for £15 and less.

    don't forget to check if the one you are replacing has a SATA or IDE connection - you'll need to make sure your replacement is the same.

    You can tell by looking at the back as the connectors are very different.

    The label on the top of the DVD writer may mention it, the documentation for the PC will also tell you.
