You can find internal DVD-R+/- about anywhere, Walmart, Best Buy. It just has to have an IDE connection which is very common. You could also look into USB external drives. Average price is around $35.

You take the securing screw out, you slide the old unit out gently, you disconnect is cables, you buy a PATA dvd writer like http://www.bixnet.com/insldvcodr.html and install it in the opposite way.

Can my CD-RW/DVD Rom Drive, model # GCC4320B be replaced with a hp 24x Multiformat DVD/CD Writer, dvd 1270i . I bought this unit today, but the connections don't match up? I truely appreciate your time and...


This model DVD/CD writer is a SATA drive and unless your motherboard has a SATA connector then you have a slight problem. You will need to purchase a SATA controller and install it into your PCI expansion slot, then connect your new DVD/CD drive to this SATA controller. You will also need a SATA adapter power cable converter which plugs into the 4 pin power connector.

I have a Dell Latitude D530 laptop - does it have a DVD writer?


According to your Service Tag, your machine was shipped with an 8X DVD -ROM & 24X CD/RW Combo Drive, so yes you will need to purchase a DVDRW drive. There is a single layer burner that 4.7GB, and a dual layer model for 8.5GB. They can be purchased from Dell directly, or eBay, Amazon etc (same drive fits D630, D830 etc) and there is a rectangular button on the lower right hand side of the drive that you press in, to pull out the existing CDRW, and simply slide the new drive in. You will need a Burning software like Roxio or Nero to burn DVD's onto the new drive.

Dvd writer


Hi.
I stick with Pioneer at the moment. I've had so much trouble with many other brands, but Pioneer drives seem very good at writing even low quality discs which tends to be an indication of a good drive.

I have a compaq presario SR2150NX and i need to replace the CD drive. What should i buy


The solution is that do not replace the cd drive !!
You could buy a new DVD writer drive which can be very useful.
You can use both "cd drive" and the new "dvd drive" at a time.
New DVD drive comes only for rs.1200/- to 1500/- .(LG,Samsumg or moserbaer).

Yes ! you can operate them normally as usual.
Only call your computer engg. to make connections or the shopman to fit the dvd and cd drive.

LG GSA-H62N WILL NOT INSTALL ON MY COMPUTER WITH VISTA HOME EDITION


Please check and let me know the exact model of your computer. If you have a door in front or on top you should see the exact model number. I want to make sure your system can handel a DVD writer. Are you replacing a cd with a DVD writer or adding a 2nd drive? On all compaqs the the new DVD drive needs to be set to CL(Cable Select ) on the back of the new DVD drive. Also make sure you have the right IDE cable and power.
