How to install internal DVD Writer?

HP Recommended
HP Desktop M01-F0134
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi,

I  bought on Best Buy the HP M01-F0134 Desktop computer. It doesn't come with an internal DVD Writer, only the empty slot on the tower. I don't see it has an internal SATA port, so how can I connect and internal DVD writer? Using which port? Please advise.

Thanks!

IF there are no SATA ports on the motherboard, you can not connect the drive to the motherboard directly.

 

You would have to buy a PCI-e SATA port card, plug it into one of the open PCI-e slots, and connect the drive to that.
