Personally, I don't have much of an issue with used drives for some uses, but if you go that route or even if you buy a new one (which is obviously best), I would also get a spare one or two. I would also consider transfering the data to another media, such as DVD. One aspect you need to consider is that if the replacement drive has a problem it can cost you more money than you save by buying a used drive.

But switching mediums would be a bigger job for you, but woul give you more flexability and let the disks be more flexible as you can use more than one medium that would be compatible with every system and the capacities fomr what i seen would be larger as single layer DVDs are just over 4Gb and dual 9Gb. But youll have to way that up and check if you can actually do it and wether it would be a good thing to try with limited information we cant help you decide as well as if we were there and as familiar with the problem as you are.
Dsenette is correct though if you need the drive and arent going to change to anything else then there, and im not really to familiar with the technology frmo what i gather its an older system similar to current DVD RAM standard to allow rewriting to optical disks.
