Having problems with your Intel PC Desktops ?

I am buying a dvd player from radio shack. I was trying to find out if I need to buy it a certain way or will any work. Because I know they are different sizes length and width wise.

Answers :

The only thing you need to figure out is if you are going to buy a sata drive or an ide drive
Ask the associate at the store to show you both before you go to get it peek inside the computer and notice how your current drive is connected to the board.

IDE will be a big cable that will be flat

Sata will be a red wire that will be significantly smaller than an IDE cable

if you give me the model I can tell you for sure what connections you have
