Hi, When you first switch on your pc, press F2 on the spalsh screen, this will last only a few seconds so be quick. Once your in the bios, looks for Boot Sequence, once you have found this change it so that CD/DVD is set to 1.

My dell dimension 2400 isnt acknowledging cds in the e drive yet it says that the drive is ok. Can I get it to read them again?


Is it a CD drive, a CD burner, a DVD drive, a DVD burner or a Blu-Ray drive? Have you tested all types of cds for the drive? Do certain ones read and noth others? What version of Windows are you running? Did it stop working after a program install or a system crash?

Dell Dimension 2400 won't recognize DVD-ROM drive as Boot Device.


Enter the Bios and under System Components find the Boot priority in the Bios and move the drive to the top of the list, also you can press F12 at Start up to select it as well. :)

Hard drive


Yes, it is possible to do so. Adding a DVD is pretty much the same for most PCs. I suggest getting an 80-wire cable. The simplest solution is to replace the existing CD drive and cable with a new 80-wire cable and a DVD drive. You'll have to get drivers for it as well as software to use it (if the drive doesn't come with any). If you want to add it and use the existing CD, then you'll need to open the case, add the 80-wire cable (in addition to the existing cable) into the second IDE cable connector on the motherboard. Check these instructions from Dell. (Note they suggest connecting it to the existing cable, but that may or may not be possible.) Go to:

DVD drive bay


yes you should be able to play CD on the DVD reader.
Dimension 2400 have drive slide mounted on the side of the hard drive, cd drive and floppy. they are different for each device. you need the 2 side mount for the dvd. in order to mount them in the Dell.
the drive is inserted from the inside of the box toward the front. The front panel will prevent the device from pop out.
yes, 3 party DVD, CD drive will be shorter and fater that what Dell porvide, but it will work, al long as the opening is accessable.
get the HP DVD driver.
