I have a Dell Inspiron 1200 notebook and I want to upgrade to a DVD Burner. The default one is a CD-RW/DVD drive so I can only play DVD's and not burn new ones. Can someone point me towards a specific compatible DVD Burner? I really don't have any specifications like write speed and stuff, I just want it to be a quality DVD Burner that will last!

So does the upgrade drive have to be from Dell? Is there any possible solution for getting a DVD Burner on this laptop? Would a Sony DW-Q58A drive work? Do you know of any other specific drives that might work?
