Greetings, everyone.

I am just trying to find out if one can find CD/DVD drives for laptops, in order to replace faulty ones.

Thank you.

Why yes this is very possible!  You just need to find the specks on your laptop and find out what kind of dvd drive it has in it.  I would then search on ebay and or amazon for a replacement.  Newegg.com may even have one!

 

Hope this helps

Many repair units abound, but getting the right one with the correct plastic front panel piece or they can be swapped over from the old one.  Dell uses a slanted panel that fits only one specific drive head.  Tough to remount the new one.  E-bay and other second hand markets have questionable operation and even harder to return.
