Slim line DVD - CD/RW drive for Proliant 331903-B21

I have three Proliant DL760s, 2 are 6 way, 1 8 way. With more software available daily on DVD and CD it made sense for me to replace one of the 760s CDROM drives with a DVD - CD/RW unit. I found a new unit on eBay which claimed compatibility with the Proliant series. I tried installing it yesterday to find the IDE interface on the drive is incompatible with the IDE cable on the DL760. Apparently the 331903-B21 is for later Proliants and slides into the server docking itself rather than having to connect a cable. I was wondering if there is an adapter cable to connect the older IDE system interface with this newer type DVD drive.
