If you can think and look logically, you will be able to replace your current drive with a standard notebook drive, mostly called slimline.
open the case by pressing the two knobs at the side and lift it upwards. The unit clicks out easily, the removal of the flat cable and power connector needs a bit of patience, and you have to unscrew the drive from the bracket after that. I think you can get a drive for some $50,-5015338.jpg

SOURCE: Replaced IDE DVD writer with a SATA DVD writer.

Check your bios settings. If you already have two SATA hard disk drives in your system the bios should also list your SATA DVD writer as third in the list. Make sure the bios list the DVD writer. Remember all SATA drives including SATA DVD drives are all seen as Masters. Check your Boot order settings as well. If windows sill does not list a drive letter for your SATA DVD click, Start/Run and type: diskmgmt.msc in the run window. Assign a drive letter to the drive manually.

Cheers!
Mike

    Dear Experts, I have connected an internal LG GSA 4163B DVD Writer to my Lenovo Netbook via an IDE to USB cable 2 days ago. Although I could get a new E: drive, a message always popped up complaining...


    OKay

    Sounds to me your trying to do what i did and did not work. the issue is the netbook is not compatable with this method you need a netbook compatable External unit is what i suggest, if there are any experts that have diffrent advice I welcome it as well. But I tryed what your doing in fact i went out and bought a external unit because of this fact, the issue is compatability.

    Thanks

    HI i Have a acer aspire T-180 .Am looking at purchasing a dvd Writer fr it but am asked if its Sata ot Idu do you know which is compatible ?.thanks


    The dvd rom will IDE not sata, it will be possible to put a sata dvd-r in the pc but you will have to make sure you have the right powwer connector on the power pack for it, your best bet would be to use an IDE dvd-r and add it to the slave connector on the IDE cable already in the pc. hope this helps.

    Primary IDE port does not work. My main hard disk drive and DVD writer drive are connected to the Secondary IDE port. If I move them to the the Primary IDE port, both the drives do not get detected at all....


    Good day sir, there are several way to connect an extra IDE if the motherboard is full:
    1. Buy a PCI to IDE/SATA card. Check your local computer dealer if there is available.
    2. Buy an external USB to IDE Hard disk enclosure.
    Of course, these are things to buy, but check first the CMOS setup if the Primary IDE is enabled on your PC.

    Is it compatable with my desktop pc?


    Ok. Well basically CD, DVD and Hard Drives are all cross compatible platforms so you don't have to worry about compatibility issues. If your asking me to choose I would say that you remove the CD writer instead. But before you do this make sure you have enough extra sockets in your motherbaord to plug in your Pioneer DVR-1910LS 20x DVD±RW IDE Drive w/LightScribe if your CD Writer uses IDE interface your inluck coz you can use it in place of the Pioneer DVR-1910LS 20x DVD±RW IDE Drive w/LightScribe, but if it isn't make sure you have a spare IDE socket in your motherboard. Simply remove the side panel use a flashlight and see if there are vacant IDE sockets, it's usually long in black, white or blue color. see the picture below.

    If its vacant follow the steps on the link below simply copy and paste the link on you browsers address bar.

    Blank DVD Causes PC Reboot


    if the pc reboots, then a driver or hardware fault is the cause, try uninstaling the dvd drive in device manager, then restart pc to install it again, or if you are able connect the dvd drive to another ide cable connector incase its a fault from the motherboards ide channel.
