Exclamation In need of a DVD drive/burner, suggestions?

I have an older Compaq Presario V2000 laptop that came stock with a cd drive/burner and I'm looking to upgrade to either a DVD drive/burner or possibly even a Blu drive/burner (do these even exist yey??) Just a quick question though, do I have to look for a specific kind of drive that will be compatible will my older laptop? Also, if anyone can find a good drive from here: The Apple Store (U.S.) that would be best, or if not, something from newegg works too.

thanks guys!

Take your pick. Don't expect to be able to burn at high speeds.

Yes, it may be too slow to burn successfully at high speeds.
