Default CD/DVD drive broken, need help

Just recently I could not get my CD drive to open so I stuck a paper clip in the hole, poped it out and tryed to stick a disk in to get it to read, turns out it can't do that either. I think I may have damaged it because I carry my computer around quite a bit (Desktop). How can I replace this, I'm not sure if this is my hardrive or not but will I lose anything in replacing this?
