Hi,

I have an Acer 4738z laptop. Is panasonic Internal SATA uj-240 sata slim 12.7 mm internal blue ray dvd burner compatible with my acer 4738z laptop? If my laptop only supports IDE, then are there any SATA to IDE connecttor cables available for converting the Panasonic UJ-240 SATA Internal 12.7 mm UJ-240 blue ray dvd burner to my Acer 4738z laptop?

Are there any free software available to check whether my dvd drive is IDE or SATA? If so please provide me the URLs for the software?

Please revert as soon as possible for my question.

Thanks and Regards,
Sriram.

The Intel® HM55 Express chipset used in that laptop only supports SATA devices, so your optical drive is clearly SATA :-)

If the laptop uses a standard slim optical drive, that drive should work;  but the surest way to confirm it is to remove the current drive and confirm that the dimensions match the Panasonic unit you want to buy.

Hi,

I was impressed by the technical knowledge of the expert about my Acer 4738z laptop's specifications and also about the Panasonic Blue Ray DVD Burner's compatibility with my laptop. I also appreciate the Expert's quick response about whether the Blue Ray Burner has the capability to burn dual layer blue ray disks by including a reference URL.

Thanks for your quick response.

Thanks and Regards,
Sriram.
