Generally, with the Packard Bells you'll be able to exchange it for a newer one very easily. But, since I haven't seen a Packard Bell in quite a while - there may be problems with models that offer more advanced features (since the older model BIOS may not be able to support it).
Interesting to note is that Packard Bell doesn't seem to be doing business in the USA any longer - although their products are available in the UK. My first Windows computer was a Packard Bell (and I've still got the floppy drive that came in it!).

And, if so, here's a link to the drive: http://support.packardbell.com/uk/item/ind...;ppn=P700401101
It's a common drive and most other CD/DVD drives should fit. Just make sure that it's got the IDE, EIDE, or PATA interface and NOT the Serial ATA or SATA interface.
