  1. Will this dvd burner be compatible with my motherboard? The dvd burner is E-IDE Interface but I dont see anything E-IDE on the motherboard specs.

    Tigerdirect has them for $9.99 w/rebate

    Thanks

    IDE is a widely accepted standard. You'll find IDE channels on quite literally every motherboard made in (almost) the past two decades.

    You should have no issues with the burner or software necessary to use the burner as long as you have a computer capable of running Windows 2000.
