      I don’t think so as that would be an expensive drive and cost more than the D800 to begin with. Go into Device Manager and see what is being listed there. Remove any CD Drives and all the SCSI drivers and then reboot and allow Windows to reinstall the correct drivers.

      If you still have the problem run a Registry Repair by following the directions here

      If that doesn’t fix the mess that you have I would save all your data to some kind of external Storage Device and then Wipe the HDD and reload from scratch with the Dell Recovery CD’s.
