The Drive you purchased is a SATA interface, the system you have uses Parallal ATA IDE interface.

You need to get a Drive with an IDE interface for that system.

How do I connect a 20X super all write to a Dell Dimension 1100 computer .The pins on the data lead apear to be different and the power lead apears to be missing from the unit I purchased.


Hi,

To my understanding, your new Lite-On LH-20A1L 20x Super AllWrite DVD±RW/RAM is a SATA whereas your Dell Dimension 1100 has only DMA/ATA-100 (Ultra) EIDE. it will not work nor the connectors fit.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

The pc wont let me burn the imesh tunes on to cd.it says error.how would i know if i have a re-writer


if the cd has been written to already, you cannot write on it again. If the cd says CD +/- R, then it is not rewritable, look for a CD that says +/- RW. If it doesn't say either of those, a regular cd looks light grey, while a rewritable is usually a lot darker.

CD/DVD Drive will not read cd cd/rw or dvd/rw's


Goto the web site of the company that makes the writer and reinstall or update the internal Firmware for that model of writer.

Go to the bios of your system, then check whether the device is detecting or not, if not replace bus cable , check power connectors,

CD Drive


Your 1100 is not a new PC. Every CD/DVD reader, writer & rewriter out there only warrants CD/DVD players for 1 year. There is a reason. They are cheep. Everything you have mentioned points to a dead CD player. Replace your's. Here is a great place with good prices.
