That is a slim line DVD/CD combo ROM drive from a laptop. You don't have to replace it with the exact same make and model, there is a selection of IDE slim line drives at Newegg, like this one.

hi well thats the trouble i don't know what type of connection it is ,someone said its a SATA,PC World said he didn't know what it was,that it was not a normally one,but when i went on to liteon site and looked at this model it said the connection was a IDE/EIDE.I would have thought the guy at pc world would have said its a IDE connection if it was.I will try and get a better picture of the connection.

The guy at PC world was not very helpfully and said you will have to get in touch with the manufacturer,but there has got to be more than one drive that will go in this thing like you said.

Thanks Scott
