We can def's source you a new optical drive, but we will need to know something else first...

This is your computer: http://www.google.com.au/imgres?q=dell+dimension+2400&h...

Does the optical disc drive take a pata connection, or a Sata connection.

Look here for the connection types:

Look here for purchasing Sata:

Why does it have to be Internal ?
Plenty of USB externals avail if you search.
