Replacement DVD reader for HP m9090a PC

\015 I have a HP Pavilion m9090a media centre PC. Just out of warranty. The DVD reader has died. I want to install a replacement generic reader, but it looks to me that I have to install a HP model because of the curved front on the PC.has anyone a comment on this?If I have to commit to a HP reader/player, do we know an approx price for the replacement?\015

Answers :

Price is about 185 to 250 i just bought one 6 weeks ago i went with the 250
You dont have to get the generic one that come with it, it just looks better as its suited to the fascia of the computer. I have looked for a price but it all i can find out is that it needs to be reurned to hp here in australia. it may be different in usa or somewhere else.
