I’m the newbie and I need help please.
I live in England in a small village in Warwickshire, at the end of the telephone lines so the broadband is slow (does my head in) but as I have retired I have quite a bit of time on my hands.
I recently bought a Compaq Evo D510 SFF form ebay running 2Ghz CPU with 640 Mb memory and the OS is windows XP Pro. It came with CD rom and I bought an LG GSA-H10A DVD super multi DVD drive from ebay and it will not work for me.
I have tried the jumper in all positions, tried unplugging the HDD in case the power pack was not powerful enough. But nothing I have tried will work.
Can you tell me if this drive will work in the compaq. If you say yes then the drive is fried, or damaged in transit, and I will have to retun it to tha seller.
If anyone can help me I will be very grateful for any information you can give me. HP have told me that I can only run the Compaq/HP drives in the Evo but I think they are telling me stories.
