DVD Rom buying help needed

I have a small sized desk top pc and the Dvd rom has stopped working ie it open and closes but doesn't read any discs. It is a Pioneer 'dvd-rw dvr-219rs'. I can't find the exact one on sale so can anyone recommend an equivalent dvd rom? I can change it myself but want to be sure Ive got the right type.

Cheers.

If you could specify what PC you have it could help others with your question.

Unless you specifically want LabelFlash any SATA DVD burner will fit. Should you want LabelFlash click here will fulfill your needs.

No CD/DVD or CD-ROM access is missing error Code 19, Code 31, Code 32, Code 39, or Code 41 Try this if the optical drives are not appearing in My Computer or Device Manager. (This is sometimes caused by the removal of Roxio or other writing software.)

click here XP_CD-DVD-Fix.zip and save this file to your hard drive. Navigate to where you saved it and double click the file to extract the contents. Locate the EXE file you extracted and double click it. A confirmation dialog will appear when the script is done. You may need to reboot for the change to take effect. This utility is only intended for Windows® XP, but also appears to work for Vista and Windows 7. You may need Administrator level access to use this utility. If you do not have Administrator level access, the program will say it is finished, but will not have made any changes.

Similar fixes click here works for W7 Vista or XP click here manual fix Run regedit and navigate to registry key HKEYLOCALMACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Class\ {4D36E965-E325-11CE-BFC1-08002BE10318}. Highlight it and in the right pane, find the Upperfilters and Lowerfilters values. Highlight each one in turn, right click and delete them. Close regedit and restart the computer. If in doubt make a restore point before making changes.
