hi calum


Welcome to the Forums.


Looking inside the unit via this B40-30 Video Disassembly Guide, this system uses an ODD connector board that attaches to the motherboard and into the ODD.

If you'll be going for an HDD caddy, I would recommend you get the B40-30 with an ODD so that you won't have any issues  attaching a caddy as there's no guarantee that this connector is present with a B40-30 with a dummy ODD..



Hope this helps.
