The PSREF for it says it's:  Multi-Burner DL DVD±RW SATA 1.5Gb/s Drive

 

Check that the replacement is the same height, as there's 'Slim' models available.  And if there's a button on the front case cover, that pushes on the actual player eject button, check that they are in the same place.   I'm not saying this one fits, but if it does, it's gotten Newegg's consumer choice award for the past 6 months:  ASUS -- DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS

Any standard 5.25" SATA DVD/CD drive will work on that system, such as the one recommended by BiggAl, and the instructions to replace the drive begin on page 24 of the manual linked here.

 

Cheers,
