New CD/DVD-ROM Drive..keep same look! HELP!

I wanted to get a new CD/DVD-Rom for my computer but i want to keep the same tray as my old one as well as buttons. I want to get a new Drive basically, but keep the same look as the old one (same color tray, same position, same button used as old one, same everything) I own a Sony PCV-RX660. I dont want a new Drive outstanding from everything else! Thanks!

Not going to happen

Unless you get another identical drive, chances are it's going to look different. Deal with it, or stick with what you've got.

...to accomplish that is to contact Sony and get their replacement drive. Verify that it's the same drive and part number. That said, it still may not be exactly the same if the machine is an older model. Sony may have replaced the older drive with something more economical for the company, etc.

Hopefully you know that the Sony model will be MUCH MORE EXPENSIVE than a drive purchased on sale at one of your local computer stores. Last week, I saw a dual-layer, multiformat CD/DVD burner for $39 after discounts and rebates.

Your choice.

Hope this helps.
