Second DVD drive HPE-170t

[ Edited ]


I'm looking to buy a second DVD drive for the HP HPE-170t. Can anyone confirm that I can put any SATA DVD drive in there. I'm just converned that it is a custom form factor and needs a special DVD drive.

Re: Second DVD drive HPE-170t

The HPE-170t looks like a standard
tower system. The Upgrading and Servicing
Guide is here:

and there is definitely one standard
3.5" drive bay slot free in the system.
If you check the original configuration

a second DVD drive is an option.

One thing to be careful of is
that it looks like it only has
4 SATA ports. 1 hard drive, 1 primary DVD,
1 portable media drive are in the standard
config. One SATA port
should be available for your second DVD.
