The CD or DVD drives in older rack-able Suns (e.g. Netra T1 model 200, Sun Fire 
V120, Sun Fire V100) can be used in the V240; all of those are IDE/ATAPI. I 
think Sun "saw the writing on the wall" w.r.t. SCSI optical drives before then.

The relevant section of dmesg.boot from my V240 running NetBSD 6:

aceride0 at pci1 dev 13 function 0: Acer Labs M5229 UDMA IDE Controller (rev. 
aceride0: bus-master DMA support present
aceride0: using PIO transfers above 137GB as workaround for 48bit DMA access 
bug, expect reduced performance
