DVD ROM Player for 1850R

What is the part number for a DVD-ROM/CD-ROM player for a Proliant 1850R? I would like to replace the old CD-ROM drive so I can read DVD data disks.

Re: DVD ROM Player for 1850R

Although the is no DVD drive offered as an option for our Proliant servers, you could try using one that is being offered as a Workstation ( Deskpro) unit. Keep in mind that this hasnt been tested on our servers but since both are IDE, it should work. Remember that you will have to use a DVD software to read and play your movies. DVD drive for Compaq Deskpro pn 211055-B21. If you will be using a DVD in this unit I suggest you run WIndows 2000 as an operationg system.
