Sushi, I need your help.

I need to know how to find out if a cd burner is compatible with my computer. I see how it's installed into the computer, doesn't look to difficult. Can you tell me how to find out compatibility?
And, what kind of audio cable would I need? This is what I'm looking at.

bumping for sush.

tg, since it's a ide type device, it's most likely compatible with your system. so long as you don't have too many drives installed (most systems allow a primary ide drive and a slave, and a secondary ide drive and a slave), your system should just treat the cdrom drive as another hard disk.

it should come with any necessary audio cables, but i doubt you would need one. it should output the audio thru your sound card.

the only trick is to make sure it fits in your case, and the ide cable can reach.

The next time someone asks what you did this past weekend, squint really hard and say, "Why, what did you hear?"

Oh! I didnt see this until now. Sorry about that.
Thats a GREAT price! Just so you know, that it says OEM. And that means there are NO cables. The only thing you will find in that box is the CD burner.

I dont think you will need a cable though. Make sure you read my PM.
