Thanks Colin! I know they are cheap (£15 online) but it wont be here in
time for my couple of days off work (today / tomorrow), and although its
been on my mind to upgrade my hand is somewhat forced by SMART errors,
and I can spend all day tomorrow playing around to put it right!

I wasnt aware that the DVD drive was broken until I go to use it earlier
today (hasn't been used since last clean install on this machine in 2010)
