My laptop has a DVD Rom and CD writer but want to do is put a DVD writer and CD writer in it but I need a part number for the drive that will fit that Laptop. The company needs a part number to be sure if will work. Any idea?

The one in the Dell has one big connector and the one I got look like sata connector. So I need to find another like the Dell has.

I'm confused. Can you post pictures of what you are dealing with. From what I can see the Dell Inspiron 1525 takes a SATA connection. If you bought a Slim DVD drive with a SATA connector, it should work.

The "big" connector is an IDE interface and the smaller square is SATA. IDE types are very old. You might find an IDE CD/DVD laptop drive on EBay

Both CD/DVD were made the same year but mind was a Dell and came from a HP. I know now and what to look for.
