Question about PC Laptops
My cd dvd drive is busted and i want to buy a external cd burner. But i don't know which are compatible . still running windows me 2000
Compaq tend to have removable CD drives, just by undoing 1 screw on the underside you may be able to remove the drive, then you just order a replacement.
for an external CD drive any USB drive will do, it's not compatibility with your laptop that is the concern, you just have to make sure that it does what you want, make sure you get one with an external power supply as compaq usb ports tend to be low power ports, and bus powered drives try to draw too much power when burning disks
