Probably because the slim DVD/BD reader/writer were introduced for the ZX40 series. For the Z820 you can however buy this: https://www.asus.com/us/Optical-Drives-Storage/BW16D1HT

 

I use one in my Z440 and used it in my Z800 as well until i bought my Z440. It´s a standard 5.25" and often aviable in bulk to buy just the burner without third party software. I use ImgBurn instead.

Perhaps we are looking at different items when looking at a HP Z820.  When I looked for that PC model, it came up as a desktop workstation, which has 5.25" drive bays.  That can use a normal 5.25 DVD/Bluray drive.

Slim Bluray drives are usually not used for a desktop unit. 

Please post a link for the item the inquiry is for, so we are looking at the same thing.

Just so you are not confused.  @Z440Roger misstated.  it will accept a standard 5.25" drive.  Most any model/brand will work as long as you have an empty drive bay, and spare SATA and power leads.

That´s what i meant though i by mistake wrote 3.5 inch but should have wrote 5.25". The ASUS writer i linked to is a standard sized 5.25" drive and do work. Don´t know how that can be misstated. What did i miss?

Thank you all..
