Do the current dvd drives available in shops use the same connector?

no, that looks to be a proprietary connector made for that laptop manufacture, although it might be connected to an IDE or Sata cable within the inside of that laptop

That looks to me like the old (standard not proprietary) combined IDE/power connector for slimline laptop drives- so if you can find an old slimline IDE drive it should fit.

rqt is right. That is an old IDE slimline connector. Current drives are SATA and will not fit. If you get a IDE slimline you may need to swap the plastic bezel.
Ebay has used IDE slimlines
