    I'm trying to play a game, and it comes in a dvd format. My computer doesn't play dvd formats, so I need to buy a dvd drive. However, apparently I need an IDE drive, I'm not sure what that is, but I guess its like an older version which I can basically only buy online. Does anyone know how I can find out if I really need an IDE one?

    I have windows XP
    AMD Anthlon XP 2800+, 3DNow, 2.1GHz

    You're welcome, and all of those are IDE units. (y)
