Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
I am trying to install a dvd drive taken from my compaq presario SR1120NX in my Dell Dimension 2400 system, which already has a CD/RW drive.
However, the drive does not go into all the way. My question is: will I be able to play CDs on the to be installed DVD-ROM drive, assuming I remove the existing CD drive to make space for the DVD drive?
Also, is there anyway to fit the dvd into the dimension drive? Am I overlooking anything? thanks.
Yes you should be able to play CD on the DVD reader.
Dimension 2400 have drive slide mounted on the side of the hard drive, cd drive and floppy. they are different for each device. you need the 2 side mount for the dvd. in order to mount them in the Dell.
the drive is inserted from the inside of the box toward the front. The front panel will prevent the device from pop out.
yes, 3 party DVD, CD drive will be shorter and fater that what Dell porvide, but it will work, al long as the opening is accessable.
get the HP DVD driver.
