Hi Morpheus?. Most CD drives are essentially thew same. Your daughters one shold have a 4 pin plug for power. This plug is about 1 inch wide. It should have a much smaller 4 pin connector for analogue sound out, this connects via a round screened cable to the sound card. Then there should be an IDE connector that connects by a 40 way ribbon cable to the motherboard. A superb drive that should be fine for the task is made by LG and only costs about ?12 + postage click here. This is an oem drive, but that just means that it may not have any cables or screws, but you will already have those.
