I want to change a SATA DVD Writer in my PC, but I'm finding it easier to source IDE ones.

Would I be able to fit an IDE DVD Writer if I have a SATA one at the moment ?

depends on the motherboard, which you will have to tell us about before we can help you?

If the Motherboard as EIDE slot then no problem, You will need a Ribbon cable for it
