    Hi, I own a dimension 4550 and I'm looking to buy a vostro 200. Can I remove the dvd drives from my dimension and put them in the vostro, ie, are they compatible? Thanks!

    If these are both desktops, it's 99% sure they're compatible. You can check the make/model of the optical drives to be sure.

    I think the issue may be more the OS than the unit as Vista has some issues with older drives XP does not and you haven't said Vostro with which OS.
