DVD ROM connectors on DL 165 G7

Hi,

I'm trying to install a DVD ROM on a 165 G7. While I can see where the SATA connector goes on the motherboard, for the life of me, I cannot figure out where the power-connector goes. Nothing on the board/system seems to be an appropriate receptacle for it and the DVD ROM is not recognized by the BIOS or the boot process. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.

Turns out that the power-adapter that was supposed to be in the DVD-ROM box was not included (even though the documentation says it does). For want of a $1.99 part that I later had to go out and buy at a local store, I wasted 2 hours. Incredible that a multi-billion dollar company could be so careless as to both, neglect to include a part that probably costs them a few cents, AND to not include a single diagram in their documentation indicating where the connecting wires ought to go in a server.
