I have an Packard Bell notebook, that is several years old. The DVD drive has died on me.

I have been on Ebay to look for another one and typed in a model no, i think which was. MIT-RHEA-C.

There seems to be a few with that code but with other info as well. Will all Drives be allright as long as it has that main code or do i need something else, as i don't want to order the wrong one. thanks

MIT-RHEA-C appears to be the P-B model number for your laptop, and a quick google for 'MIT-RHEA-C optical drive' brings up a number of hits on e-bay for slightly different drives for this laptop. They should all fit and work, but if you want to make sure why don't you remove the drive from your laptop and see if it has a model or part number printed on it ?  Then you can search for that.


Just a note of caution - the two or three I looked at were all used, not new. This is not necessarily a problem, just something to be aware of.

Just to note... optical drive failure can be indicative of motherboard failure too on laptops. If you have another computer you could test it on it might be worth it, before buying another.
