Questions about Optical Drives.

I am a little confused about the different types of optical drives. Like Rom and the others. My main use for optical drives will be installing software, the OS, and games. So I would like to know if this optical drive would be able to do the above. http://www.amazon.com/LG-Electronics-Optical-Drive-GH24NSB0B/dp/B00EUAFAF6/ref=sr_1_2?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1402198718&sr=1-2&keywords=optical+drive%2C+dvd+burner

I also want to know if it is compatible with this case. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119160

  1. yes, it's compatible with your case and it will be fine for installing software. You may want to make sure that your motherboard is a SATA motherboard - but then all recent motherboards have SATA ports, so it should also be OK in that aspect.
