Benq dvd/rw installation problem

I just tried to install a Benq 1655 dvd/rw burner,BUT the slave/master? wire connector is differant on my computer.The lug in the back of the burner where it should go is blank,and the plug on the original slave /master wire will not fit into the new socket on the Benq.Can I purchase an adapter or summat???

Hi,

this is a standard IDE connector. If your cable is that strange or old, just get a newer one. (or try if you can turn it 180°, so they should fit) Recommended is a 80 wired UDMA-66 cable as also used for harddiscs.

You’re not trying to plug a floppy drive cable in, are you ?
