Unfortunately optical drives do have a short life span, you can buy a replacement from newegg.com so cheaply these days its not worth messing with the old one.
I have just bought a DVD-RW dual layer OEM (so I had the burning software with it) for a new build I am doing for $28 plus delivery.

Can a SATA CD-RW drive be used in a Dell 3000 with IDE drives? I didnt know and bought a dumb CD-RW that turned out to be SATA. All I want to do is replace the non-working CD drive currently in the thing....


Not without adding a SATA drive controller card to the computer. If you can afford it, hang on to the SATA unit, as your next computer will definitely use it, and buy another PATA drive for this computer.

Phillips dvd+rw dvd8701 in my dell not working


How is it not working? CD drives do not have a very long life span and they often will quit working after some time. You more than likely need to get a new drive to replace the broken one - to ensure that your new drive lasts longer be sure to clean it often and keep the area around your computer fairly clean.
Dust is the biggest killer of computers and computer parts.

I want to upgrade from cd rw to dvd/cd rw


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.
