Question about Dell Dimension 2400 PC Desktop
It's a very easy process. But first, is it compatible with your pc and your operating system? Generally, you will have to remove one side panel from a desktop pc. Be sure to unplug the computer before you take the cover off. Touch the cover that you just removed to discharge any static from your body so you don't damage your system. Find an open bay (you will have to pop out the front cover - it's easy to do) and insert the drive. Connect it to the power supply. Before you put the side cover back on, plug in the pc and boot it up. You should get a message that new hardware was found. Use the install disk and you will then be able to use your drive. You can then put the cover back on. You don't have to shut down to put the cover back on. Just be careful that all of the wires and such are inside and not hanging out when you put the cover on. Piece of cake.

Tips for a great answer:
WARNING: Before you start troubleshooting remember that you are dealing with electricity that can KILL.
Installing additional DVD burners on your computer can turn your PC into a DVD-producing powerhouse, enabling you to burn multiple discs concurrently.
This is typically not a problem, as most computer cases can handle up to four separate optical drives at the same time.
The installation process is fairly straightforward, requiring no more than 20 to 30 minutes.
Turn off the computer and disconnect the power cord.
Remove the case screws at the back of the case and slide out the side panel.
Insert the new DVD burner into an empty optical drive bay at the top of the case.
Repeat for each new DVD drive.
Screw each drive into position.
Connect an IDE or SATA cable to the data port on the back of each drive (depending on your drive model).
Connect the white-tipped molex connector from your computer's power supply to the power port on the back of each drive.
These cables will already be inside your machine with one end connected to the motherboard and power supply, respectively.
All you will need to do is attach the other ends to the back of your optical drive.
Put the side panel back on, screw it to the case and reconnect the power cord.
Hope this helps.
