I just spent two hours trying to get a simple answer out of Dell Support.
I bought an XPS 8930 and discovered it uses some thin form factor optical drive that I've not seen before (laptop maybe). I had planned to swap in my blu-ray burner in, but obviously that won't fit. So...
I wanted to order an internal blu-ray burner to replace it. Or get some guidance on what third-party blu-ray burner would fit this sized slot.
On the third call attempt to support, I was again routed to sales, who again routed me to parts, who actually finally answered this time.
They said they don't know or sell what fits, and suggested I ask Best Buy for help.
Before I do that, does anyone here know?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Mine shipped with this one: HL-DT-ST BD-RE BU40N. It appears to be made by an LG/Hitachi alliance. The retail version seems to be: LG Ultra Slim Bd DVDRW 6X SATA 9.5mm Tray Retail Optical Drive BU40N
When you install it you will want to swap out the plastic faceplate that shipped with your 8930 on it's current drive. It's plastic and will break if you're not careful.
