Re: Slim DVD Burners to replace CD writer?
I just went through this problem with my Presario 2800 after ordering a slim
DVD from Newegg, and then having to return it because the connector on the
back was different. I called Newegg to swap for one that would fit. It took
them a few minutes to check, but told me they didn't carry one with the
correct connector, so I had to pay a restocking charge. But it seems they do
have a 'conversion' list, so it may be in your interest to give them a call
to see if they carry one that will fit.-- As far as I can tell, the
difference is whether the rear connector is on the left or the right, and is
real easy to spot because the connectors are also a different size. If you
remove yours, then go to Newegg or a site like NEC, you'll be able to see
the connector differences. Good luck. --- Leon
