Is it possible to replace the DVD drive in my GX-281 EB11? DVD discs sound bad when spinning, and some sound horrible, even audible to others in another room, despite the door to the office being closed. Reading is intermittent. It is in the device manager and only partially working in Windows Explorer. I tested numerous working DVD discs.
I have swapped DVD devices before, but they were all the usual flat-fronted units, and not with the elegant curved front of the present DVD drive. A typical drive will look silly as a replacement. Is it even possible to get an OEM drive anywhere?
It sucks that I barely used the device until after the warranty period.
