Can I put my DVD burner from my old computer into my new computer? 

by on March 8, 2013

Q: I bought a new(refurbished) HP with Windows 7. There seems to be a problem with the dvd burner. I reads dvds just fine. I just can’t burn anything with it. It’s a small form factor unit. I still have my old atx tower “Frankenbox. The burner in it worked just fine. Will that piece of hardware fit in this new unit? If so I’ll just swap ’em.
