I have not tested it on a DM800, but it works on a DM8000
The internal DVD on a DM8000 is connected to an USB port (internal) on the DM8000 using a USB to SATA convertor. (see my post here: http://www.eurocardsharing.com/f31/d...k-review-81384 )

You could also use a DVD on a server and mount it as a cifs share. I do that.

The DM800 has an internal usb also. When i build in my 2.5 inch 250 gig HD last week I saw that there is an internal usb connector. The DM800 is so little that I think it won't fit or otherwise the DM800 get so hot it wil die. The box itself has no bay for an internal dvd-player or writer also. Why the internal usb connector is there is a big question for me. It would be better if it was an extra SATA connector because the external SATA connection gets disconnected if there is an internal HD installed. Maybe for an USB to SATA converter you mentioned so the external SATA stays connected?

The external dvd is an 3.5 inch with USB cable. I connected it but the DM800 won't recognise it at all. Is it necessary to install a plugin?

The internal USB did not see my memory stick, so I think it's only power out.
I do use it to power a small internal fan.
