Remove the optical drive and confirm that it indeed looks like these to be sure; but most notebooks use a standard size drive, so any of these with the correct interface [You need to look at the old drive to see if you need an IDE or SATA drive (be sure to remove any adapter that's attached to the drive -- you'll need it for the replacement; and it can mask the actual interface):  http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=2010100005+1036508673&Configurator=&Subcategory=5&description=&Ntk=&SpeTabStoreType=&srchInDesc=

Note that the bezel will likely not be as "custom" as the original drive, so it most likely won't match the design curve of the case; but it will work just fine.
