Cabling DVD drive

The internal routing and connectors for the DVD drive.

  1. To disconnect the optional optical drive cable, you must first press the connector release tab, and then disconnect the cable from the connector on the system board. Do not disconnect the cable by using excessive force.
  2. Follow the optical drive cable routing as the illustration shows. Route the cable from the connector on the system board along PCI assembly 1. Do not bend the cable under PCI assembly 1.
  3. Make sure that the cable is not pinched and does not cover any connectors or obstruct any components (for example, the ServeRAID adapter or PCI assembly 1) on the system board.
