This is not designed to be used with a Laptop. The Laptop does not have a power connection. You can buy a SATA/USB cable along with an adapter to change your internal 5-prong accessory plug into a SATA power plug. This will allow you to install the drive into an older PC that is not set up with SATA connectors. These cable are available at CYBERGUYS.COM

This unit says it is a SATA drive. Sata drives cannot be used on a laptop 99.9% of the time. It is also an internal drive, which means it is intended to mount inside a regular desktop computer with screws. It needs a SATA data cable as well as a SATA power cable, neither of which are provided by 99.9% of laptops. For a laptop (or desktop too) please purchase an USB external DVD drive, such as the Buffalo external drive for $33. Have FUN!

Hello,

In general, a "mini USB cable" should work for most models. The cable comes standard with the unit if purchased at a retail vendor. Thanks for your question.

If your Dell has the SATA power and data connectors, it will work. The drive comes with a SATA data cable. If your Dell is not set up with the SATA connectors, you can go to CYBERGUYS.COM and purchase the necessary adapter cables. They are inexpensive and easy to install.

Yes, as long as your Dell desktop has an available SATA port on the motherboard then you can use this drive with your Dell PC. Or if your PC currently has a SATA CD or DVD drive that you want to replace with this drive then you can disconnect that drive and use the SATA port that it was connected to on the motherboard in your Dell desktop.

You can make DVDs from images/videos on your camcorder provided that you can connect the camcorder to your computer through an interface like USB or if the camcorder stores media on memory card and your computer has a memory card reader.

This is an internal cd/dvd drive that hooks up via sata cables. This does not connect to the standard plugs of the power supply or motherboard. You have to buy a sata compatible power supply and/or motherboard, along with the cable. I hope this helps :)

This drive will read all CD/DVDs except blue-rays. Therefore, your cd/dvd games will be read by this drive, but it's up to your computer to run the game. You could hook this drive up to a computer that would not run your game program, but that would not be the fault of the drive.
