If you want to do it yourself look at Newegg.

Their prices are real low. But make sure you getting a drive that will work.

I've done a few.

Just not your model. The biggest drawback is the bezel doesn't match. But in all cases we don't mind since it was cheap (newegg) and resulted in something better.

However for most of us the external USB 2.0 DVDRW Dual Layer is the real solution.
