Dvd drive replacement

I want to swap my dvd/cd burner drive for a new one. What is the difference between ata, sata, pata? What size will fit? How do I know which one to buy for my HP Pavillion? Any brand or model recommendations? Thanks so much. Dennis

Get a PATA also called IDE drive.They are cheap and will work great in your box.You don't need the speed of SATA for a DVD drive.Even though they make SATA drives. Pata's data tramsission rareis much faster than even the fastest DVD. You have a four device potential for you IDE on your motherboard and only a two device potential for your SATA. Save the second SATA port in case you want to add a second hard drive some day

Pata slave drive not found in bios a05 of dell dimension 8400 but found in windows and linux os's


Hi
Have you tried swapping the pata drives - eg master to slave and vice versa ?. I have found that if the drives are not from the same manufacturer, quite often, you cannot get both drives to work. Seagate and WD normally are O.K., but some of the older Fujitsu ones just knock out any other drives on the same 40/80 way cable.

WHAT HD & SIZE RECOMMENDED FOR MY GATEWAY 500S PC WITH OS XP?


You cannot use a SATA (serial ATA HDD in this machine. You need a PATA (parallel ATA) HDD, also known as IDE, ULTRA IDE, ULTRA ATA. This has a 40-pin ribbon connector & a 4-pin power connector.
Sizes generally available would be 80GB up to 250GB, although very few PATA drives are now sold since SATA is the new standard.

I do not have a manual for the ACER sa20 but it appears that it only has a PATA drive controler and not SATA. You can get a PATA to SATA converter on Ebay or buy a SATA controler card or buy a PATA DVD drive instead of the SATA one.

Need to install my new dvd writer on my dell dimension 9200 pc. The plugs are different. now what?


If the plugs are different most likely you bought a SATA drive. If your MB doesnt support SATA then there really isnt any use for that drive, i would return it and purchase an IDE drive, chances are thats what you have. Good Luck!!!
