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...
