optiplex 7040 no blu ray drive?

work gave me a new machine. I dumped some blu ray disks to get the machine read for use and discovered dell does not make any internal drive that can read a blu ray disk?

parts told me to go buy an external drive?

how is this even possible to not support blu ray?

RE: optiplex 7040 no blu ray drive?

Blue Ray is a fading technology not used much in business-oriented systems.  Some computer manufacturers never supported it (Apple).

Depending on the form factor (full tower, mini, micro), you may be able to install an internal blue-ray drive, but the external will work just as well if you cannot install an internal drive.

Blue ray wasn't on any Apple but It has been supported 3RD party for years.
