The DVD drive in my laptop is busted and I'm looking to replace it, but I've never replaced a laptop DVD drive before, so I wanted to find out if there's anything I need to know before I proceed. I've got a Dell Precision M6400 with a HL-DT-ST DVD+-RW GS20N slot load DVD drive.
I just need to know what to look for when buying a replacement drive. Are there different sizes I need to check for? Different connection types?
Or, even simpler, I'm looking at this drive
which seems to be a fantastic deal, so you could just let me know if that one would work
Anyway, I'd love any input you guys can give me, and if you need any more information, I'd be glad to give it. Thanks a bunch.
