    Yes you can use a PC DVD drive if you get the correct one and flash it with the modified firmware.. I already swapped mine with the Samsung 616T. It works flawlessly.. Here is a link to a site that is selling them already pre-flashed with the new firmware. All you have to do is basicly plug it in.. Here is a link if you want to purchase one.
