Question about Dell Dimension 8300 PC Desktop
My Cd-rom does not work at all,and I need a diagram to show me how to connect it.
This here is the main page for all support questions regarding your Dell 8300. This is a great starting point for all problems.
Specific information on how to replace a CD-ROM drive can be found here.
Two things are important: All plugs are shaped so they fit in only one way (they are either shaped or have a little notch.) So never force a plug into a socket, especially the power connectors.
Second - to make your life easier, set the jumpers on the CD drive to cable select if you are using one cable to connect the hard drive and the CD-ROM. This prevents you from messing with the master/slave settings.
If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
