if the DVD drive is a samsung all you need is a new gear belt.
You can find one on ebay or take take the old belt to a repair shop and I'm sure they will sell you one for $5 or less.

Gear Belt = Tiny Black Rubberbands that your girlfriend uses for her hair....lol.

p.s. I've used them and they are exactly the same.


Edit: I believe you can get about 200 for $1. A pair of tweezers will come in handy here too, or a tiny electronics screwdriver (flat head).
