So I wondered why the DVD player never woked in my Envy. I opened the case and the power wasn;t connected. Looking around I notice that it takes an adapter of some sort to connect the power to the power supply. I browsed the net for one but didn't really see anything that seemed like it was a match. Any suggestions as where I could find one?
thanks in advance, Dan

So that was a nice try but wrong. The DVD player on my Envy i very thin and the power connector on the back looks a lot like the data connector just a little larger. There is no where to plug in a typical power connector.

Well i suggest you try to be nice...after all its a forum where we try to help!!
Yes i know its thin....its similar to a netbook drive..
and you should check your 300W PSU for the cable...if its the Original PSU that came with computer then you will have the connector for sure!
If not...buy a normal dvd-drive and install it...its under $30 anyway these days...as all kind of HP connectors and PSU are Custom Propietary and you wont be able to find adapters, connectors etc...

The internal DVD drive is not a standard 5.25 factor. It is a very thin unit, and does require an adapter to power the unit. Here is the part numbers used for the DVD drive.
See this video, it shows the thin drive and the 6 pin power plug.
