Now it’s time to take a look at the drive itself and what the drive came shipped with.
Our retail package contained the DVD-1035i drive, fixing screws, software CD-ROM, and manual.
Now let’s take a look at the drive.
The bezel of the HP DVD-1035i is simply styled. We can also see various logos, an emergency eject hole, single green LED and an eject button.

On the rear of the drive we can see from left to right, an unspecified connector, digital and analogue audio connectors, CS, slave and master terminal selectors, IDE connector and a power connector.
