    Optical drive
    Your Mac Pro has a DVD+R DL/DVD±RW/CD-RW SuperDrive, which can read CD-ROM,
    photo CD, audio, and DVD discs. It can write music, documents, and other files to CD-R,
    CD-RW, DVD±R, DVD±RW, and DVD+R Double Layer (DL) discs. To open the drive, press
    the Media Eject key on your Apple Keyboard. If your Mac Pro has a second optical
    drive, press the Option and Media Eject keys to open it.

    Just for your info as you have a Mac Pro you will have Intel Processors not G5's.

    The G5 Processors which were made by IBM featured in the first cheese grater style Power Mac's which can be distinguished over the Mac Pro by the case only having one optical drive and completely different internal design. The G5 also appeared in the early newer shape iMacs.
