[qanda]This thread is about the Samsung DVD SH853M. Click here to see full specs[/qanda]I want to connect a samsung dvd writer sh-s203 (sata) to a dell dimension 9100. The motherboard has four sata connection for hard drives. Can I use one of those connection for this sata dvd writer?

Yes you can, you just need to enable the SATA channel in the BIOS since Dell disables all channels that have no devices attached to them from the factory.

Thanks KTL for the fast reply and information. I will connect it soon.
