I've recently purchased the IdeaPad 320-15ABR.
I would prefer an internal Optical Disk Drive, but is proving difficult to work out which one i require / best fit to purchase.
Is anyone able to advise on the best internal DVD ROM / RW drive and where to purchase?
Would prefer to get an internal rather an external, as it's less to lug about.
I've looked in many places but can't work out what is suitable and what is not. I thought it would be easy to source, but was wrong.
Help / advice much appreciated.

Welcome to the Community Forums.
Would you have the MTM or model number from the sticker?
You may also check it from the parts lookup page, just keep the serial number confidential.
As example, I used the Machine Type 80ST here on the parts lookup to find compatible Optical Drive that list a lot of recommended drives and its substitutes.
Part number 5DX0J46488 HLDS GUE0N DVD RW
Part number 5DX0L08424 PLDS DA-8AESH 9.0 mm ODD
Part number 5DX0L08425 TSST SU-228HB 9.0mm Slim Tray Rambo ODD
You also check with Lenovo medion
Your laptop should also show ODD board from the lookup page too.
Hope this help answer your query.
Update us how it goes.

Many thanks! Found what I'm looking for - But have to say i don't like what I see.
Price is 2 - 3 x that of what i was attempting to source locally. And the lack of actual information is actually amazing.
It has given me some more ideas though.
For info - it's the 80XS I'm looking for.
