The close up view is really blurry, but it appears to be a sata port. Does one end of the connection have a 90 degree bend? If you look closely you'll see it, if it is a sata port that is.

do you mean the connection that goes in to that one if so then yes it goes up from the bottom of the laptop then it comes towards the opening for the diskdrive


Just to make sure is this a sata connection the other end

EDIT: Hmm, I was thinking that it is a Sata port, but it might be an IDE. Here's a dvd drive for a laptop on newegg http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...N82E16827151162 . Now that I look through it, I don't think they make Sata ports for laptop Optical Drives.
So I'm pretty sure it is an IDE/Pata (same thing).
