    Moved to appropriate forum.

    You'll have a hard time finding that particular drive right now, but you can get its replacement, the 167T, and it's probably cheaper than your 166S was. From what I've read it's just as good. I also have the 166S and I think you'll do just fine with another Lite-On.

    Sorry about the wrong Forum.
    I think I will give the 167 a try. Newegg has that one in stock.
    Thanks

    No problem.

    That's where I'd buy mine from too. I think they're less than $25 right now.

    Sometimes the Retail drives will ship with limited software whereas the OEM drives is just the drive. If you already have software I would purchace the OEM drive to save a few bucks.
