Hi

Here you have a link to a place to buy the Blu-Ray player (direct link to the optical drives)
Asus Parts EU (http://www.asusparts.eu/index.php?cPath=67674_73347_199593_220444_221006)

And here is a tutorial about how to change the optical drive and use the "front plastic case" in front of the optical drive so it still matches the rest of your notebook :)

Good point, fuzon. If the OP is in Europe, the EU parts store is a great resource.....they seem to have everything!

Unfortunately, it's not a great option for U.S. shoppers, because shipping can cost more than many of the parts! ;) And for whatever reason, the Asus-operated eStore here is woefully understocked when it comes to parts people actually need.....

I would assume he is in the europe, since he got berlin in his name.... but for that I can be very wrong.

Any of those will work, but I don't believe any of them are BD burners.

Glad to help, make sure to hang onto your faceplate from the old drive, they typically don't come with one.
