What price are people giving you & who are they?

It's not a ROM drive, but a rewriter you are discussing.

As it's a laptop probably the best (and cheapest) solution is to buy an external CD/DVD rewriter.

There are others but prices start to go up; there are, of course, many other on-line retailers such as e-Buyer, Novatech and Dabs who have similar products.
