You can go to almost any office supply store and they should have some kind of selection for 'ide' cables. they are relatively cheap as well.

Hi, can i install a 720 GB internal hard disk for my acer veriton? my present configuration are windows 7 pro,32 bit 160 GB HDD. thanks in advance.


I found a pdf manual here and it shows that this computer does not have SATA ports, but does have 2 IDE ports, so if it's an IDE hard drive you want to install then you should be able to. However, your 2nd IDE port is likely used by a cd/dvd rom drive, so unless you are replacing the hard drive rather than adding one, you would need to remove the disc drive. There are very affordable external usb disc drives available.

Dvd writer will not read any disc can i replace the internal cd/dvd writer with any other


Hi:
Yes, you can replace your DVD writer with any other model, but there are 2 types, SATA and IDE.
The IDE drives connect with a wide , flat ribbon connector, and the newer, SATA drives take a smaller cable.

They are easy to swap out, and are basically plug and play!

Installing an internal dvd/cdwriter


Take apart computer
Look at the cable connecting the existing dvd/cdwriter in your computer, and follow the ribbon until you see a similar looking cable
Consult the PC manual to find out the # of pins you need to change and their position
Connect the new internal drive to the second ribbon
Reassemble your computer

Best to consult your product manuals for the PC, your BIOS, and the internal CD/dvd writer, and/or a techy-geeky friend.
