Hey, I was wondering if I could reuse a Samsung DVD drive from my old Dimension 8200 pc? I'm building a new computer and was wondering if it's just plug and play? Thanks

Omg, Sorry. Internet Explorer posted it twice. Can someone delete this one? I'm not seeing an option too....

Absolutely. If it is an IDE drive though you may have difficulty. In that case just buy a new one, they are like $20

No you can not, it is IDE and now there is SATA. There is a way to interconnect, but it is not worth the efforts and money, plus performance would be very slow compare to new ones.
