    Default Taking a DVD-Drive and installing to another

    Can you take a CD/DVD-Drive from a prebuilt(HP,Dell,Compaq) computer and install it into a custom computer?

    Sure. If it is a SATA drive you should have no problems as long as there is a place to plug it into the motherboard. If it is an IDE (PATA) drive (and the new system has a place to plug in IDE drives) then you may need to set the master/slave settings to the correct position for your configuration.

    +1 ^^

    All should be fine as long as it fits and is setup correctly, and of course it must be functional as well :)
