The lite-on combo LTC 48161H is a CD Writer Combined with a DVD-ROM.

You will need a DVD Writer to Burn DVD's.

I bought a pioneer DVR-216 DVD/CD writer, on inspection the connectors at the back are not the same as the one I want to replace in PC, the DVD rom in PC has a IDE cable and another connector which contains 4 wires.. 1 red 2 blacks 1 yellow.

the connector at the back of the pioneer has 2 seperate sections of holes/contacts and isnt as wide as the IDE cable so have i just bought the wrong one or is there any connectors i can buy to convert it tho i cant see how cheers P M
