  1. I have a Compaq Presario SR1610NX and need to replace my CDRW/DVD-ROM combo drive. One of the gears that opens and closes the drives got jammed and the drive is now useless.

    The old drive is a Liteon Model SOHC-4836K but I've been unable to find one anywhere I've looked online

    Does anyone know what kind of CDRW-DVD-ROM combo drive I need to buy to replace it

    Your Desktop computer takes any internal Combo CD/DVD optical you want. Model doesn't matter... It is probably an IDE drive, but check this before you buy
