Hello everyone, I need to replace my dvd drive "DVD-Writer Model SN-208".
My question is, can I replace it with "dvd cd rewritable drive model ds 8a5sh" ?
The reason I ask about this particular replacement is that there is one available close to me on craigslist which is simpler than having to have one shipped to me.
Or can someone suggest other options. I have searched for a cross reference guide but cannot find.
thank you very much for any assistance

DVD burner, dual-layer support, 12.7mm high, tray-in
OEM FRU list (item18 page 78)
18 ODD, 12.7 Rambo Tray, HLDS GT33N Tray in Rambo 25011474
18 ODD, 12.7 Rambo Tray, PLDS DS-8A5S Tray in Rambo 25011187
18 ODD, 12.7 Rambo Tray, PSN UJ8A0 Tray in Rambo 25011472
18 ODD, 12.7 BD Combo Tray, HLDS CT30N Tray in BD Combo 25011473
18 ODD, 12.7 BD Combo Tray, PLDS DS-6E2S Tray in BD Combo 25011471

As long as the specifications are met then it would be fine, try to consider the dimension and size and with SATA interface.
Hope this help answer your query.

Would you have a link of ds 8a5sh for the specification?
It most likely is same SATA connection but try to check the size as you would need a 12.7mm tray for the drive so that it won't be loose inside.
