Wondering if anyone knows where I can get a replacement Optical Drive Bezel. Just installed a Sliverstone TS09 (Optical HDD bay) and used the Bezel from the Optical bay.... Would like to get another Bezel for the Optical Bay for the rare times I will have to use the Optical Drive.

Any ideas would be great. Thanks

Looked at mine and that drive looks different for some reason.

That drive bezel is wrong for the G74

This one looks right.... If the price is above $10 its not really worth it since I only need the Bezel and not the actual optical drive.... I would just get a external Optical reader or a Sata to USB adapter instead.

the bezel just snaps off and on anyway, you have to remove the hdd caddy to put the optical drive back in anyway so just swap the bezels round lol

Good luck to anyone trying that.... those clips will break after a couple of times... not smart

Just use a thin terminal driver to pop the tab on the bezel. If ur gonna just rip it off like eveyone else then yeah it will break lol
