I'm sure you could just take the faceplate off (very easy) and then spray paint it. Just make sure that the paint doesn't dry and seal the drive opening flap shut.

They make silver optical drives. I have one and it matches my silver case.

I linked you to a Newegg listing with a silver DVD drive...... Newegg has silver drives.

EDIT: Didn't see it was deactivated now. My bad. Still, just google "DVD drive with silver bezel" to find some.
