    I have a Toshiban Equium A80 laptop where the DVD burner has expired (not software problem) - not having much experience on laptops, is it practcal to try a drive replacement rather than lugging an external drive around (ie is it easy to remove and replace)?

    The drive in question is a mat****a uj 830s. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    if your lucky it should be a case of pressing a button or releasing a catch and the drive should slide out. if not call toshiba and they'll be able to point you in the right direction.

    Oh and Matu****a == Panasonic :)
