hello people, first post here. im in a bind. my optical drive has finally crapped out on my aw m15x and it needs to be replaced. it has a slot-load bluray reader in it now, but since i gotta open it up i might as well replace it with what i want. i am looking for a 12.7mm slot-load laptop sata connected bluray burner w/ lightscribe, i just can't seem to locate one. anybody know of any? my old lappy had lightscribe and i used the hell out of it, made everything nice and neat and went well with my ocd. thanks in advance. HAPPY NEW YEAR!

12.7MM
SLOT LOAD
LAPTOP SATA
BLURAY BURNER

I found one on Amazon but not entirely sure if it is compatible for your Alienware.

@killerx525, thanks for the info but it won't work as it has to be a slot load, that is a tray load.
