The DVD drive in my Presario 1675 laptop died some time ago and I
would like to replace or upgrade it. After some digging I found that the
drive is a Toshiba SD-C2202. At the Toshiba Web site they list several
models that include CD burners; for example, the SD-C2212. This drive,
like the Compaq's, use a 50-pin connector that provides power in addition
to the IDE interface. Where can I find out which drive's interface would
be compatible with the current one?

The system is running Windows 98 loaded from a "generic" Windows 98
(non-Compaq) CD, with 1GB partitioned for Windows and the remainder for
Linux.

Tried it- the site said bidding was closed. 8-(
I'd like to find one with a burner in it, if possible.
