Replacing DVD/CD drive

Look inside of your tower, you will have a few different cords connecting to your DVD/CD drive.

It should either have a 4 pin Molex connector and an IDE or a Sata connector and power.

The IDE cable looks like this:$OD%2DLarge$

The Molex connector looks like this:

IDE is an older tech that uses a 4 pin molex to connect it.

Now, if you have something that looks like this:

It uses Sata, and the power cable looks like it as well, it's just longer.

To make sure the DVD drive you're working will work with the current DVD/CD's you have, just look on the front of the CD you are going to use, in truth it usually should work with anything. It's even RW so you can re-write data to RW CD/DVD types.

Pretty much, just make sure that it uses the same power type and data connector as your current one. Power type being the 4pin molex or the Sata power plug. Data type being the IDE cable or the Sata cable.

If it matches, it will work :) I hope this helps.

Anybody knows which CD rw hardware need to buy to install in emachine T3882?it's belongs to my nephew and I am trying to help him since his dvd cdrw slot broke down and I need to replace it. thanks.

There is two types of connectors SATA and IDE when you look at the drive plugs on the back of the current CD ROM you will either see a long IDE connector about 2.5 inch's with two rows of holes or a small normally black connector with on single ****. Do not confuse the data connector with the power connector. the link below will show you the difference. Once you determine the type of connector click the relevant link below for options IDE|c:89|&Sort=0&Recs=10 SATA|c:89|&Sort=0&Recs=10

I am trying to hook up an additional DVD RW drive to my Acer Aspire Computer but the cable connections are different than the usual IDE ribbon wire connectors in a regular computer. How do I do it?

what do you mean by unusual? if it is smaller, i think it is SATA cable. If your motherboard have built in support for SATA technologies, you can get it one.

there are also another alternatif, such as you can get PCi bus IDE/
SATA interface card. But I cant guarantee it can be detected before BIOS. because it required driver to be loaded, so if you want to use it only for burning DVD's or CD's this is better way.

New IDE Drive - will it work on my Desktop?

According to the manual for your computer it only has SATA connectors. 4 to be exact. There are no IDE connectors.

SATA cables look like this:

There are many good SATA drives out there. It is a better (faster) drive besides.

Cannot get 2 IDE devices to show in bios.

Does the computer have two IDE channels? If so set the Maxtor HDD as master on the primary channel and the DVD drive as master on the secondary channel. Also right click on My Computer, left click on Manage and left click on Disk Management and see if the drives show up there. Also check the boot order in BIOS.
