Replace DVD drive doesnot need Sata adapter, check your dvd and your board if they are compitatble, if your dvd is sata and your board use sata too, you just need sata cable + the dc cable comes from power supply.

What is the specific problem you have connecting this internal drive? This is an internal SATA optical drive for a desktop with a standard 5 1/4" drive opening. Many optical drives ship as OEM devices; you will need to reuse the data and power cable from a previous drive or purchase a SATA data cable (7 pin). A locking cable can help keep the cable connected to the drive. If your power supply (PSU) doesn't have SATA power connectors (15 pin), you will need an IDE to SATA adapter. Most online cable shops have the best prices for these.

If your computer doesn't have a SATA port available, you need to add a controller card or use a SATA to IDE converter.

If your case is a ultra-small form factor, you may have a modified optical drive opening. These cases use a slim optical drive (mostly sold as laptop drives). In that case, get an external 5 1/4" enclosure or a USB to SATA adapter.

If you have the drive in the computer, press the Eject button. If that works, then the power cable to the drive is fine. Check the data cable to both the drive and the motherboard. My old computer had SATA connections on the motherboard that would not allow the cable to lock. When I bumped anything in the case, I had to check that the cable was re-secured.

What OS are you using? For most versions of Windows, your OS should have the correct driver or find it with Windows Update (if the computer is on the network). Try launching Windows Update and checking if an optional driver is waiting to be installed. I don't know if Unix or Mac OSX drivers exist for this drive. You may need a different optical drive.

The drive should now be listed in the storage devices (Computer/My Computer). If you can't read files, try another disk. If it still doesn't work, try cleaning the lens or a different drive. Some drives are sensitive to the power supply for burning optical discs.

I hope these suggestions help. Please add a comment with the specific problem and case/OS that you are using for additional solutions.

I was wondering if they make an adapter that I can use a new CD/DVD drive!


Need more details on the problem. I know that the drive you want to install is a sata drive. What is your pc model? From the pc model, or better, the motherboard model is possible to look at the specs and then google for the sata-something adapter

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!

My PC is an IDE. the dvd/cd burner went bad. I baught this new LG burner today with an IDE to SATA adapter with the needed cables. I installed it all and it wont even come on, not working. So I am guessing...


It is not the dvd driver problem but more likely to have the adapter issue. The generic Microsoft cd/dvd dirver should be fine, I never have to install and driver for the replacement DVD/CD drive on any of my repair works.
Did you try this setup with another PC?

Is there an adapter on the market that can convert the ide to sata? If so which one is best for a dvd rom?


yes there are cable adapters so you can use a SATA drive in an IDE configuration and vice-versa--they are all pretty much the same..( you may need the power converter also)

Does dimension 2400 support SATA DVD player


No, not directly. There is no SATA header, (Connector), on the motherboard, and you have no SATA power cable on your power supply.

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim2400/en/sm_en/techov.htm

HOWEVER, you can buy, and install a SATA Adapter Card, and use a SATA adapter cable, on a certain power cable you have already.

The SATA adapter card goes into any available, (Open), PCI expansion slot on your motherboard.
(White slot on motherboard)

This is an example, (Not an advertisement for said manufacturer, nor website),

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=2329305&CatId=1455

You will also need a SATA data cable, to hook that SATA DVD player up to a SATA adapter card.
(7-pin connector on each end of the cable)

As said, you can convert a certain power cable on your power supply into a SATA power cable. (15-pin connector, on the SATA end of the cable)

The power cable is a Peripheral power cable. It will have a 4-pin Molex connector on the end.

If you have an unused Peripheral power cable, an adapter power cable plugs onto it. The other end of the cable has the SATA power connector. (15-pin)

Will give examples of a Peripheral power cable, and a SATA adapter cable, in an additional comment.
