cd writer

I've got an Acer TravelMate 230 (x86 Family 15 Model 2 Stepping 7).I want to install a Cd-writer instead of the cd-rom drive.Is this possible and if so what's the cheapest option?
Thanks everyone.

It will be expensive to replace it, why not get a usb cd writer you can get them around 45 quid...

Keep the CD-ROM drive and, as ste_bla suggests, get an external rewriter.

Use the CD-ROM for audio use, installing software etc and use the rewriter purely for burning.

It will extend its lifespan considerably by not having to perform a multitude of tasks.
