I purchaded some itens to upgrade my t42p, however, I saw that it`s necessary to upgrade the rom using no-1802 rom.
And, so, I can`t upgrade it because my dvd ram is no workable, all the discs (cd-rw or dvd-rw) discs are no recognized by ODD, the model is Matshita DVD-RAM UJ-812.
Well, so, I only would like to know which is better option (brand/model) to replace is drive,
I will happy to know which are your suggestions.

The other options that I could suggest, would be the Lenovo-branded HL-DL-ST GSA-4083N, or the GSA-U10N. I would also suggest staying away from any Ultrabay Slim drives that are made by Panasonic/Matsushīta, since most of them are not very reliable, or they are outright incapable of writing to some discs that they 'dislike'.
This was just my experience with Panasonic/Matsushīta drives, though. They might have improved the quality of their optical disc drives, so I may be wrong.
