As long as the CD-Burner will fit in there, and the same interface (IDE,SATA, etc.) is available on the E-Machine, it should work fine.

Yes.  Just make sure you set the burner to cable select and make sure it is on its own cable on secondary IDE on the motherboard.

I WANT TO PUT SOME PICTURES ON MY COMPUTER ON A CD


Insert a CD-R, open it from My Computer, and drag your pictures onto it. If your computer has a CD burner, then you select File/Write these Files. If it doesn't have a CD burner, then you won't be able to.

A DVD CD burner came installed in my Emachine computer purchased Nov 2007 and runs Vista Just want simple instructions on how to use the burner. Thanks


To burn files onto a disc, all you need to do is drag and drop files onto your drive under My Computer. When you have put all the files there, put the disc you want to burn in there, go to My Computer, double click the drive, then go to File/Burn these files to my disc. If you wish to burn music/video CDs or DVDs I would suggest using more of a full fledged burning suite such as Nero.

No supported disc burner found on dimension 3000, attempting to burn cd from itunes


Check the task manager. Is a program named "gearsec.exe" running? If not, iTunes didnt install the gear burning engine or you disabled it.

Dell Dimension 4700 CD/DVD drive not reading


The CD Drive has probably gone bad. You will have to buy a replacement drive. I recommend newegg.com. The price will be about 30$ for a DVD burner. If you want just a DVD player or CD Burner then it will be even cheaper. Dell provides a very easy to read step by step guide with pictures on replacing your drive here:

Good Luck!

Hope this helped!
