Newegg has many; I did not check Amazon, but they probably do also.


To verify, click on the picture of the one you are interested in, and scroll down to the specs; there it will list if there is an optical drive.


When deciding what unit you are going to purchase, and if it does not have a DVD drive, check to see if it has an interior mount for one, and if there is a knock-out panel on the front of the case that could be used.

Don't limit your purchase to including a CD/DVD reader.  You can pick up an external for under $50.

I had luck finding an internal one in a $5 thrift store PC. Bought the PC just for that part.

There are plenty of external DVD players out there that you can plug in via USB they work just as well as internal DVD players
