    My laptop's CD driver doesn't work. It can only drive a complete new CD at best. How can I deal with it? Or how can I repair the CD?

    I have the same problem. Portable drives are £10 on eBay and they work perfectly.

    Are you talking about the actual dvd drive? or a CD?

    Optical drives are replaceable, at the bottom it will have 2 screws specifically for it than slot it out, and than slot a new one in.

    the one he gave is an external one where you connect up with a usb.

    USB ones. They'd probably be better in case you need to use it on another computer or laptop and are usually cheaper too.
