hello all I am currently in the process of re-caseing my Compaq CQ-62-209wm and i want to swap out the existing DVD drive for this one http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... is this drive compatible with my current connections/software (running windows 7)

the model you have listed is a laptop, so no, the desktop drive won't fit.

what exactly do you mean by re-casing? are you putting it in a tower? either way, you will need a laptop hard drive to connect to the optical drive connector on your motherboard, not sata.

yes i am in the process of putting it in a tower. when i re-case it all i want to do is take the current laptop DVD drive which is connected through sata and replace it with that DVD drive.
