My first post. I have a Acer 660 laptop which has a duff CD / DVD rom combi drive. I need to replace it but Acer Support is charing 200 pounds for a replacement. The thing is I've seen similar drives on ebay for 20 pounds but what's the difference?
My model number is Quanta Storage Inc SBW242SE, UX16-M.
On ebay and elsewhere I can find a QSI SBS242 (but not SE) and no mention of UX16-M.
Is this a firmware issue? I'm planning on reinstalling my OS on the laptop too, if its a firmware issue is there an easy way to get around this, easy for a noddy!
