I've just acquired a second user Compaq Ipac pc with no cdrom drive. In order to find one, I need to identify which ipaq I have. Can anyone help please? It's silver and black, two usb ports on the`front and six on the back, along with the usual serial/parallel ports etc. Underneath is a chassis(?) code 217127-002. There is also a compaq barcode 8141JDVZ000B. The only info I can find (on ebay) is of a "multibay x24 cdrom drive 165864-B21" I need to know if all/most/some of these slimline drives will fit my pc.
keewaa -thanks for the link, but I suspect a slight problem. Isn't the Belarc download to test the pc that you're downloading to ? And as the ipaq system has no removable drive, I can't upload anything to it !!!!!!!!
...it's got a machine control program running in it for a cnc I'm building. I've got the software on cd and floppy supplied with the pc, and I want to do a clean re-install. It's got 98se, but that's about all. While I could lash up an external floppy, an external cd might be another matter ( but possible). If the system crashes, I could be up the proverbial.
