The way this question has been asked makes me think that you are still under warranty and you are worried about voiding the warranty. With that being said if that's the case your going to void it no matter what when you install a new drive. So just open the case and see what kind of connection that the old drive is installed with(most likely is An IDE connection) then go to www.tigerdirect.com and purchase a new DVD drive. When it comes to new disk drives they are no certain ones that have to go back in the computer as long as the connection is the same and you have your jumper configuration the same.

I am unable to connect a cd rom from an old pc to my new emachines because there is no "ribbon" to connect the cd to? How else can I connect it to the motherboard? The CD doesn't have a SATA...


Look on the mother board for a ribbon connector.. double row of pins.. Some boards will have a legacy connector. If not.. you can buy an adaptor to connect IDE CD to board,

BUT.. for about the same cost, you can buy a cheap new CD-DVD RW - burner.. probably with far better peformance than an old one. About $25 should do it.

How do I open the tower to insert a c d


Open My Computer and then right click on the CD/DVD drive of your system that are define. For example: "E, or F, or G". Click on eject. or Press on the button CD/DVD-ROM. Mostly it's located in the right sight just below the CD/DVD-ROM "where the CD/DVD can insert". And if this two is not working than take a pin length around 2.5" and push inside the hole it's located in the right sight just below the CD/DVD-ROM. Hope it'll be helpful to you. All the Best!

I need to replace the dvd/rw in my GT5026E but cant find the original. What will replace it


Any 5 1/4 DVD / CD drive will work. You may have to order drive rails depending on the setup of Gateways tower. You should have 2 - 5.25" Drive Bays available. The original model number and name for the DVD drive is 5648 DVD Burner Combo Drive .

The tower does have internal SATA so you can replace it with any internal SATA DVD rom you like, it doesnt have to be Gateway, and it can even be blu-ray.

Hope this helps
