I take delivery of me new dell system hopefully this tuesday.

Just a quick question for anyone who has one of these systems, can i swap over the dvd drives ??

What i mean is could i just put my dvdrw's straight into this pc, or are they dell specific drives ???

Sorry if it's a simple question but I would really appreciate it if someone could let me know, i accedently ordered it with one dvdrw and a dvdrom drive, i needed two dvdrw drives or a combo so i just want to swap the rom drive with my combo drive in my current pc.

They're just standard drives as far as I can see without delving inside the box ( and risking my daughter's wrath :) ) so you should be able to swap your drive into the PC. The connections are SATA as far as I'm aware so you'll obviously need a drive with a SATA connection.
