I want to upgrade the CD-ROM drive of my Toshiba Satellite Pro 4320 with a new DVD-RW drive. If i bought the following drive, will it work with my Notebook?
Samsung SlimDrive SN-S082D

Or please, if you know of a DVD-RW drive that is compatible with this notebook, then share your knowledge so I and others know what to buy. Thanks.
Or are all drives available nowadays compatible?

Drive compatibility is always a problem by upgrade. The fact is that every ODD will not work with every notebook model. I presume it is because of different pin assignment.

Unfortunately I was not able to find any list of compatible ODDs for your notebook model. Sat Pro 4320 is pretty old unit and it will be probably not so easy to find compatible DVD-RAM drive. Try to contact authorized Toshiba service in your country. They are upgrade specialized and they should know which ODDs are compatible for this Satellite Pro notebook.
