I have a Bose 1-2-3 Surround System but the CD/DVD reader no longer operates. Is there a replacement unit available for the reader?

This drive is actually made by toshiba, part number SD-M1612.

They are getting difficult to come by, and you wouldn't likely find a new one, but you can get a refub drive:

Personally, considering the cost of the part and what you'll pay in labor, it is probably not worth the investment, as you aren't gaining significant functionality, it is still just a standard dvd player. For about the same price you'd pay just for the part, you can buy an updated/upgraded Bluray player instead, to take advantage of the newer disc technology with better picture quality, and get some other features too - you can still route the sound through the bose system.
