    I installed the Sony burner and the sytem would not boot up. In other words it would go so far then freeze. I used a new cable and an old. I took it out and put the samsung back.. Not worth all the trouble. These burners go for about $9.00 I'll wait until I get a new system and go from there

I'm pretty sure the cables for all writers/readers are the same. One thing is for sure, if they fit they will work.

Where do you hook up the power strips from CD Brunner to computer

There should be a cable coming out of the power supply that will fit with the cable coming out of your cd burner.
