    Building entire new system for lady who's son fried computer trying to install cd burner from office max.I ordered all new parts to build her new system except dvd player,wondering if it would be ok to try and use it in new system.Because of the way dell does things wondering if i should have replaced that also.Dont want to take chance of screwing up new system over a 40 dollar part.Thanks,keep up the good work.

    Chances are very good it would not be a problem. I have never heard of Dell changing the ide configuration. Power supplies yes but any hard drive will work in them so the drive should be ok.
