Adding DVD writer to medion PC

I have one of the Medion PC's bought from Aldi.
Is it easy enough to replace one of the drives with a DVD Writer but keeping the plastic flip cover that hides the drive.

Also can anyone recommend a good DVD Writer around the £120 mark.

Cheers

I work for a contractor to Medion and repair their machines frequently. The flip at the front shouldn't be affected, all you will have to be sure of is that the eject button for the drive is on the extreme right and not indented as this will impede the effectiveness of the push-bitton on the facia.

Have replaced the Sony CD-R writer in my Medion PC with the flip cover by the LG GSA 4163B all format 16x DVD writer
click here
It works OK with the Medion cover as the open drawer switch lines up exactly with the cover. I also have this drive in one of my other Medion PC's - the P4 1.6 as well as the one with the cover which is the P4 2.66GHz. It is an excellent drive.
Its also sold by Blankdiscshop.
