Dell Optiplex 755 replacement slimline DVD RW/CD RW optical drive combo?

This question is answered

I recently bought a Dell Optiplex 755 tower. it came with a DVD/CD ROM  optical drive. I need to replace that with DVD RW/CD RW slimline optical drive. having spoken with Dell they recommended the Dell HV 702 drive, but, I don't think that the HV 702 will read & burn both formats (only CD RW capability & DVD ROM), but I could be incorrect. does anyone know if this is the combo drive I seek, or, that I should look at a third party mftr or anothe Dell drive?

  • Hi blairiok,

    As per the description the optical drive present in the computer can only read DVD and CDs, if you want to upgrade the optical drive to DVD +/- RW for the system, please refer this link: http://bit.ly/10tukGl

    Or you can purchase it at a nearby local electronics store at a cost effective price.

    Please reply for any further help.

    Thanks & Regards,
