[操作疑難] Vaio VGN-Z46 modification suggestions

The DVD combo drive won't read discs anymore, may I ask for your suggestions on whats best to modify this still very worthy laptop?

1. replacing the optical disc tray by SSD with supporting frame?
2. replacing the original 320GB 7200rpm HDD by SSD? What is the best option today?

Thanks very much to all c-hing in advance.

SSD for sure, easy to find the frame?

Thanks you both, am looking into both suggestions. So far inclined to just install SSD in the original HDD bay, let say if I get the 256GB SSD, I don't think I will need that extra HDD in the DVD bay. Perhaps I should just disconnect the power connectors so as to save power and extend the battery life a bit. Frustrating is power will drain even if the machine is in shut down state.

Regarding SSD, may I ask for your suggestions? And how to overcome the problem with most of today's SSD are 7mm thick whereas the Z's original HDD is 9mm thick. What shall I do to have it fixed in the larger space?

Thanks again.
