    There's one on newegg that I bought for my ABS Mayhem F-15 notebook (Aka MSI Megabook M630, AKA Avertec......)

    Newegg.com - SAMSUNG Black 8X DVD-ROM 24X CD-R 24X CD-RW 24X CD-ROM 2MB Cache IDE Slim Combo Drive - OEM

    37.99 free s/h

    These slim/combo internal dvd burners are basically the same, their might be an additional hinge you might need to swap with the DVD Rom drive. The Cover can be pop off easily. I had to sand my down to make it fit.

    Usually it's just a screw holding it down, you just need to pull the entire thing out. I'm actually embarrassed that I paid Geek Squad to install it for me. I thought it was screw down internally cause i couldn't pull it out. turns out it was really really settled in their. They were pulling so hard and just jamming the new drive in..... I'm just glad nothing got damaged.

    According to Dealigg their's a coupon for 5 dollars off: EMC1129MDD01, I hope it works!

    depend on the speed that you are burning it at.. my 8x burned at 30-45 mins but if i up the speed it will take less time but there again.. you are taking the chance of burning in corrupted area..

    i always burn in slow speed to prevent bad burn dont want to waste any of my DVD-r or DVD+r

    DON'T BUY THAT ONE. I accidentally link the wrong drive. It's a DVD CD-R CD-RW drive. What you need is a DVD DVD-R DVD-RW drive.

    To burn a movie you need to rip it then burn it. Or use one of those DVD clone software that duplicates the entire disc with the Interactive menu. It's usually good to burn at a slower speed to prevent "coasters". If you decided to simply rip the movie, I really recommend WinAvi Video Converter (Shareware) to transfer the movie to your PSP. You would need a larger memory card. If interested PM me so you can use the WinAvi to the full extent.

    Here's one for ...Lite-On?
