Default compatibility help, please.

I have a simple hp desktop that doesn't have a cd burner. How do I find out if a cd burner is compatible with my computer before buying it? HP is of no help and Newegg does not answer tech questions.

Just buy an IDE cd burner and you will be fine. IDE is standard on pretty much all computers, and you can have 4 IDE devices connected, so unless you have got 3 harddrives or a few cd drives already then you will be good to go. You will probably need another IDE cable aswell
