G570 dvd drive replacement options

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

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

Hi lobsterboy

 

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.

 

Regards
