>From my years of repairing all types of cdrom drives, I can say that
mitsumi drives are always one of a kind parts-wise even on same
speeds. And they aren't known for reliablity. Toss that drive and
pop your favorite cdrom in there. I know that will mess up the looks
but this is only option.

But nice score if the cost is dirt-cheap and complete especially w/
cds for that HP machine. Some of them has Asus-made motherboard for
HP machines.
