I installed a sata dvd drive in my dc5100 sff the boot order recognises it as an ide drive


i dont think it matter if your system detects it as sata or ide, both interface will work in installing OS, the important thing is you changed your boot order. originally it was supposed to boot in 1st drive whichever it is hard drive or dvd drive. go to bios then follow the instruction in how to move the order of boot sequence, mine is SHIFT key then PLUS.

My dvd's and cd's will not play from my e drive. What's the problem and how can i fix it?


you can order a new DVD rom from newegg.com which cost less than $20.
it is easy to remove the dvd rom drive from your machine.
just open the case, unscrew the screws holding the dvd rom in and unplug the cables.
you need to find out whether you have a IDE DVDROM or SATA DVDROM before purchasing your new DVD rom drive.
IDE looks like a ribbin flat wide cable.
SATA is a skinny small cable.

I want to install a CD/DVD RW drive. This is in addition to the installed CD/DVD already in place. The new drive has a SATA connection on the back, and the only available connector is an IDE connector....


There are IDE to SATA adapters and cables, such as this one linked below. IDE to SATA Adapter
You would simply plug this adapter into the available IDE connection on your motherboard, then use the SATA data and power cable to connect from the adapter to the CD/DVD drive. You can look around online for similar products, but they should get the job done!

HI i Have a acer aspire T-180 .Am looking at purchasing a dvd Writer fr it but am asked if its Sata ot Idu do you know which is compatible ?.thanks


The dvd rom will IDE not sata, it will be possible to put a sata dvd-r in the pc but you will have to make sure you have the right powwer connector on the power pack for it, your best bet would be to use an IDE dvd-r and add it to the slave connector on the IDE cable already in the pc. hope this helps.

Will an IDE DVD Burner work on my Acer Aspire E380 desktop. The hard drive is a SATA but the burner looks like an IDE and has belt cables. I need to replace my DVD burner and not sure what type of burner...


Yes, all you need is a IDE (Pata) to IDE (Sata) converter.

If you're replacing it, just make sure you get one with the correct interface, judging by what you sat SATA.

I want to install a 2nd dvd burner. But I don't know how to hook it up. My new pc does not have the ribbons like my old one does.


If your 2nd DVD burner is on IDE interface, you may need to get an IDE to SATA cable. Please refer to the picture below as to how it looks like:

My DVD/CD rewrite doesn't burn anymore and micro center needs 2 know if it's a sata or ibm parts which is it so I will get the right part?


They need to know if it's SATA or IDE.
They are asking you what kind of cable inside case connects the DVD drive to the motherboard.

Remove the side panel of your case and see if the DVD is connected with a wide ribbon-like cable (IDE) or a skinny flat cable (SATA).

Sata DVD burner


This is happening because the DVD SATA is booting like a first drive instead of the IDE Drive.
Be sure that your SATA drive is connected to a right port on your motherboard.
Go to your bios and into the boot options be sure that the IDE drive boot first than the SATA DVD.
******************************
Another way is connecting an adaptor SATA to IDE and connect your SATA DVD Drive as second IDE on your motherboard.

******************************
This will be fixing your problem.


Have a great day
Pablo :-)
