  1. the model you have listed is a laptop, so no, the desktop drive won't fit.
  2. i know it is a laptop im in the process of re-caseing it so i can fit the bigger DVD drive into it. both drives are sata so will it work?
  3. what exactly do you mean by re-casing? are you putting it in a tower? either way, you will need a laptop hard drive to connect to the optical drive connector on your motherboard, not sata.
  4. yes i am in the process of putting it in a tower. when i re-case it all i want to do is take the current laptop DVD drive which is connected through sata and replace it with that DVD drive.
