That looks identical to the latitude C-series modular bay drives, if it is there should be tons of them about.

It looks the same in the picture, but i looked about and sellers seem to be specifying for different models, maybe the connector on the back is different.??

do you actually have a drive and want to replace it?

if so, you may be better just swapping the drive out of the casing for another.

i have the SX260 and can tell you that you i bought one of the old dell laptop quickswap drive bays with cdrom in and took it apart and added a slim dvd writer and it fits and works.
I have a couple of the plugin drive bays if you're interested...just add own slim dvd drive.
