OEM CD-RW/DVD combo drive for Latitude C series?

Discussion in 'Dell' started by Jonathan Rogers, Dec 6, 2003.

  1. I'm wanting to replace the CDROM drive in my venerable Latitude CPiR
    with a DVD/CDRW combo drive. I can easily find compatible drives
    already in the Dell modular-bay case/shell on Ebay in the $75-100
    range (depending on whether they're refurbed or not, etc). To save a
    few bucks, though, what I'm wondering is what brand/model of OEM
    DVD/CDRW drive I could get and just put in the CDROM case/shell I
    already have? These must be a stock form factor item that Dell buys
    and just wraps in the modular bay shell. Anyone have information (or a
    good source)?

    thanks! /jdr/

  2. stock form factor, yes, but the eject button is in a different location
    which means that the door will not fit or the replacement drive. get the
    whole unit and then put your old one up on ebay.
