DVD recorder for R61

Hello. I need to buy a DVD recorder for Lenovo Thinkpad R61 7732-4TG. I can't find a list of compatible drives anywhere on the Internet. In particular, I found a Panasonic UJ-850 drive, and I'd like to know if it is supported by my laptop. Thank you.

Re: DVD recorder for R61

I'm still not sure if I need a Ultrabay Slim or a Ultrabay Enhanced drive. As far as I know, my laptop have a Ultrabay Enhanced slot, but Ultrabay Slim drives can somewhat be installed, too.


I found the following items on eBay:


Are those drives compatible with my laptop?
