Upgrading CD-Rom to CD-RW/DVD Rom - what model?

\015 I have the Thinkpad r40e...I want to change the cd-rom to a cd-rw/dvd rom (was purchased used), what model of cd-rw/dvd rom drive do I need?\015

Answers :

According to the system information on the Lenovo support page (IBM support outsourced)
\015\012the r40e has an Ultrabay system which means that the CDROM can be unplugged and slid out uning the press to release latch
\015\012if you look on the CD /DVD drive options matrix on the following page, you should be able to select any of the Ultrabay 2000 drives
\015\012the part numbers are there, so all you need to do is put the part number into google or any search engine to find yourself an online price
\015\012I think the Ibm Multi-burner is the best drive option given though
You can buy any rom. all almost all do same work :)
