Hello I have been pondering about for quite some time needed some input from the HP community. I purchased an
Hp Pavilion A6619f Desktop PC (http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/product?cc=us&l
and not to long ago was trying to play a dvd and it wouldn't play, so i just ignored it. my computer got hit with some horrible malware and i took it to some local PC Tech's and had them remove the malware and asked to see if anything else was wrong. He told me that my CD/DVD drive was broken and was the reason i couldn't play my CD's or DVD's so my question is what is a good replacement CD/DVD drive for my PC? and where is a good place to buy them? Like:Newegg or TigerDirect because those are the only places i know to buy pc components online besides going somewhere in person such as Fry's.

These HP "how-to" articles should be helpful.
You local electronics store should have a replacement internal SATA CD/DVD drive. Otherwise go online. The Samsung models have been highly rated in PC magazines. This Samsung model also has Lightscribe capabilities.
The replacement task should be15-30 minutes.

Rica, welcome to the forum.
Here is DVD Writer from HP that should work fine in your computer. It is faster than the one the failed. Also, it appears to be a good price with FREE shipping. I have used HP Stores without any problems.
