Hello my name is ***** ***** I'll be helping you. You're working with the HP microserver and need the drive caddy for that machine?
Expert:  Cpolarek replied 2 years ago.
The part number you're looking for the hard drive caddy is 624879-001 which can be purchased here . The DVD player doesn't require a special bracket. It should just screw in from the sides if it's a regular size dvd drive. Let me know if this helps you. Thanks

high chuck

the hard drives are 3.5" and not 2.5"

I am in the UK so I don't want to bye from the USA and pay a lot of postage.

as for the dvd slot there are no holes to screw from the side and it has a built in narrow groove where a tray slides into that fixes to the side of the dvd player.

hope this helps

Thanks Ray

This is for 3.5 drives. The slots you see at the dvd drive are for if you used the same caddy and had another hard drive instead of the dvd. Should be holes at the bottom if not on the sides. Also, the cost of the caddy is just about the cost of buying a whole new microserver if you purchase a few of them.
