ML570 DVD/RW installation Problem

I am trying to install a dvd rewriter into an ML570 G1,when the drive is installed it will not power on no lights or functions.Would it be possible that this is maybe a driver issue or the machine just too old ? Can anyone help?

Hi, no it is not part number 217053-B21 as it is only dvd rom the part i am trying to fit is a DVD rewriter made by LG as i could not find a HP DVDRW available for this model, the LG part number is GSA-4167B

Hello George,
In that case check the power consumption of the DRIVE that you are using.

This should be same as the power consumed by the recommended DVD rom.
