DVD drive

LITEON LH-20A1L-05 20X SATA DVD Burner Black DVD±RW does anyone know if this drive works in 740GX. Thanks

No! It has to be IDE not SATA.

Thank you. I did know i’ve never don this before. Have any ideas for replacement

Any Lite-On unit should work as long as it is IDE. Take a look around this forum and you will see the problems with some of the drives and also the better replacement drives. If you can get one the Sony DRU-120 is a very good replacement. I was going to get the 170 to see if it works or not but haven’t had the time. It should. Keep us informed on how you make out and what drive you are going to use.
