the L7320 uses standard DVD RW drives, you just have to replace the plastic fasia with your old one and remove the retaing clip at the rear of the drive and attach it to your new drive.
I bought one from Cambrige laptop repairs on the internet for £20 + £5 p+p

hope this helps

Ive just had to do this aswell, linked to the problem in my other thread.

I got this one.... ... turer_id=0

All i had to do was change the fascia and i was good to go. Works alot efficiently than my original NEC one that came with the laptop :)

I'd be glad to tell you the process of how to do it yourself as its very easy.

to remove dvd drive, take out the battery and remove the three screws underneath, then fold your screen back till your laptop is flat this will release the the top fascia where the power button is (it clips off in three places can take alittle welly to get it off), this will then allow you to take away the keyboard, underneath the keyboard, you'll see several screws, however you'll see one screw next to a gap in the surface, this is the back of the drive and holds it in place once you've removed the screw take out your drive, you'll need to take off the little piece of metal on the back of the drive that the screw goes through and attach it to your new one. then replace the fascia and put your new drive in.

remember that you need your dvd drive open before you do all this, i know its obvious but theres nothing more annoying than when you forget.

hope this helps
