              Possibly. A two-part epoxy such as Araldite should work. If you don't find it at an autoparts store, you'll definitely find it at a hardware store. If you can, take the two bezels with you to the store so they can advise you accordingly.

                  Is it a SATA hard drive? Post a pic of the connector if possible.

                            The hard drive will need a SATA power cable and SATA data cable. The cables are easily available as they are the same cables used on desktop machines.

                            The DVD connector looks like an eSATA connector, but I could be wrong. You could take it to a computer store and have them identify it for you and they could sell you the correct cable. Or perhaps someone else on here can identify it?
