has anyone had any experience with the above mentioned machine, Sony VAIO PCV-W1G, see pic here: click here.
The drive on mine, a panasonic UJ-810b gave up a few months ago.It is a slim lap-top size, tray-loading unit that fits in the side of the monitor. Having explored various options, it seems most efficient to replace the unit with an upgrade model. There a lots of these units around but they are hardly generic. The challenge is finding one that will be compatible. Does anyone know of a suitable upgrade. All constructive comments welcome.

Sorry don't have a solution to your problem, but can you tell me how to remove the cd drive from the unit? my drive has given up too and i am looking to replace.

Also if you've found a compatible replacement could you share it?
