no, not for normal PC's....
unless they are external or state they are different in some way or another, also there is a great difference in drives for laptops.

No just as he said Cd burners generally will be the same size.

I myself have 4 drives, 2 dvd and 2 cd. 3 of the drives are the same. But my newest dvd drive is smaller by an inch and a half in length.

All CD Burners, DVD Burners, CD Drives, DVD Drivers, practically all Optical Drives and any other 5 1/2 inch Drives are exactly that, 5 1/2 inches wide and will fit in the 5 1/2 inch tray of your COmputer. Some are longer than others; but never by much; you will find a variation in weight of course though.

OH and I usually dont get to the end of your posts since the first of it confuses me. But the size of the drives are the same meaning same length ect. Not the exact same models.
