How to install a dvd and cd player in a Dimension 2400

Answers :

I actually had this case.

When you want to install a DVD and a CD player into a Dimension 2400, you will need to do two things.

1. On the DVD and CD player you will need to install a screw that has an insert on the end of it so it will not go in all the way. You will need to search for those screws from a hardware store. If you can't, just contact dell and they can send you out those screws.

The two screws closest to the front of the case receive them. The other one that you can access closest to the power supply receives just the ordinary screw that you use to secure a hard drive.

2. Once you have done this, just set the master and slave on the appropriate drives and connect them with a ribbon cable on the secondary IDE controller.

Just make sure to have at least a 350 Watt Power supply. A 300 Watt one will work, but it won't give you much room for expansion.
