It has two SATA ports

as long as you have a spare port not in use then yes you can fit a SATA DVD drive.

I f no spare ports then you could buy a SATA card to put in one of the PCI slots and run the DVD drive off that.

Thank you very much, that was exactly the response that I was hoping for!

In actual fact, I would have put money on getting a reply of some sort from yourself ;-)) .........thanks again.
