    I would get another Pioneer unit like the 110 or above. They are good drives, perhaps yours just needs a good dusting, but replacement drives are cheap and easily replaceable, and the pioneer drives just plug in and work without needing drivers

    Just use Froogle and there are plenty of suppliers in the UK, I upgraded the drive in my ageing G4 with a Pioneer 115 and had no problems
