I assume you're talking about a CD/DVD type drive. Might need a new one. Read this thread that was posted just a short while ago. It even has nearly the identical subject title as yours

Why not? The marginal price difference is pretty insignificant.

If you don't want to open up your PC then you can always go for a external USB 2.0 DVD writer, but you end up paying about double for a do it your self enclosure and more then 3 times for a already built one.

No, of course not. They're two completely unrelated pieces of hardware.

(I edited the post, I think I had the wrong thread...)

Nope, replacing your optical drive won't affect your harddrive at all...
