3 out of 5 eggsIDE

Pros: If you have a motherboard with a IDE hookup its well worth the money for it!

Cons: Used a IDE cable. Motherboard doesnt support it. Must order a different CD Driver now. Look into this first!

1 out of 5 eggsno driver support in package

Pros: Reads CDs OK and plays DVD videos.

Cons: Only recognizes 685 MB of data on a DVD.

Other Thoughts: Replaced Samsung SW-240 CD drive with MSI DVD-ROM drive in Dell 4550 from about 2003. Followed installation instructions but did not find any "software CD kit" or manual in the package. I suspect that CD kit had a driver for this unit. Can't find any information about a driver on MSI's worthless web site, either.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologize for the issues that you are having with this product.
There's no driver available for this product in case you are not aware of it since such driver is supplied from Microsoft Windows natively.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding the product, please do not hesitate to contact us directly at usreview@msi.com and we will be more than happy to assist you, thank you.

Best Regards,
MSI Review Team | usreview@msi.com

1 out of 5 eggsIt's IDE...so NOPE

Pros: The power works fine. I Don't know about the data, but I'm sure it's fine if you have an IDE cable...and your motherboard even supports it.

Cons: Uses IDE cable, so don't even give it a thought. Just go for SATA. Also, I'm pretty sure there was no actual IDE cable INCLUDED, so it's up to you to go to your local museum and find one.

Other Thoughts: Not worth it. For the same price get SATA

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Valued Customer,

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent, Rare Replacement for Older PC's

Pros: Installed easily, full instructions included. Not a "bare" or "OEM" type product, came in Retail Box. These type of products are a rare find for aging PC's with IDE drives.

Though it's not a R/W type, it's bootable & is a great product.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Other reviewers stated that this doesn't work with XP, either their unit is defective, or jumper settings aren't right. Watched a DVD on XP fine.

Read the install instructions closely! Those cables/jumpers has to be perfect, especially on a dual drive setup.

Shipped extremely fast, got it in less than 48 hours after order.

Another great find at my favorite etailer! If there were six eggs, I'd give one for Newegg!

5 out of 5 eggsGood hardware

Pros: This is a good drive. I bought it to revive an old EPOX motherboard with Win98SE, and it works great. Its quiet and it does what it should.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Some notes to some of the others that have written here, and to those that read this.

1. This is an IDE drive, not a SATA drive. It says so in the description, the title and the specs... Again, this is an IDE drive. In case you didn't get it from the title, the description, the specs, or the last 2 times I said it, THIS IS AN IDE DRIVE NOT A SATA DRIVE!!! Please actually read the description and the specs before you complain that it doesn't have what you want.

2. Please do not list your tech level as "high" if you cannot read, wonder why you cannot hook this up to a SATA connector, think there should be some kind of drivers or installation disk, or haven't tested it in another computer before complaining that it doesn't work in your feedback. Your tech level should be "low."

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Windows xp recognized it instantly. Low noise. Great Value for the price.

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: All the negative reviews I read for this product didn't apply to my drive. Its either a good drive or I got lucky.

5 out of 5 eggsJust what I needed...

Pros: Been using MSi parts in semi-economy builds for almost 8 years and I've yet to be disappointed. My first purchases are still running strong and I expect the same from this drive. Needed this drive and Newegg had it for a good price.

Cons: None, other than the fact that I feel stupid spending money on IDE hardware, but the old rig this is mounted in only has two SATA ports and there are hdds on both.
