HP CD-Writer/DVD-Rom/Combo FAILED

HP Pavilion a706n:
CD/DVD door will not open after following all the steps from HP. I can open it manually, but when I put a disk in, windows XP does not recognize it.
I am ready to give up and replace it.
My question to you is:
Can I replace this with an EXTERNAL drive rather than replacing the one now in the tower.
Is there an external drive that will install easily and allow me to install programs, view CD's, burn CD's as the current drive does?
Or, do I need to replace the one in my tower?
Any recommendations as to what I would need to buy to get me back up & running?
