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 http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=482&name=DVD-Burner&Nav=|c:89|&Sort=0&Recs=10 SATA http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=1624&name=Internal-SATA-DVD-Burner&Nav=|c:89|&Sort=0&Recs=10

Any CD-rw should work, just make sure it has latest firmware installed.

    as desmondploft mentioned pay attention to SATA /PATA connections but if your doing upgrades this is a given because you would export your case internals before making a purchase

    You could also add a second CD or DVD to this mini tower, it would involve slave master setting (verified by jumper settings on rear of drive) on IDE and just using an additional SATA port if available on MOBO. But I think (from web schematics) this model only has IDE interfaces.

The plate on the front of your CD-RW is superfical and can be removed and put onto any CD-RW. So find one you want or fits into your budget and install!

Your built in CD Drive is a DVD player and regular CDR - CDRW burner, this means you cannot burn DVD's. To burn DVD's I would recommend you purchase an external DVD burner, here are some links to ones that are compatable to your computer.

If you are looking to replace the internal drive, then as long as you purchase a drive with the same interface it will work. If you are looking for a USB external drive then any one will work.

The only thing Dell was correct with is it should have +/- signs.

Hi Maja, When you wrote "CD-RW is recognized, but not opening" are you referring to the tray not sliding? If you are, then it is possible that it is a hardware problem with your CDRW, specifically the tray loading mechanism. Pls refer to http://www.fixya.com/support/t144167-cw088d_cd_rw_drive. Should this be not the case, pls post again. Cheers
