Aspire A517-51G Add a DVD

My Aspire A517 notebook did not come with a DVD Player, but has the dummy plate installed.  If I remove the dummy plate I do not see a sata connector that will accommodate a DVD.  I've have looked for parts but haven't been able to find a sata connector.  Does anyone know if it is possible to add the interface to the system board?  I have not yet taken the system apart to see if there is any connector on the board.  I wanted to avoid that if in fact there is deed no way to add one.

    Good Morning greigle !

    What EXACT model of your laptop?
    Some models have a sata connection on the motherboard, so it is possible to install a drive.
    If not present, there will be no way.
