"Unfortunately DDR-SDRAM DIMMs are not compatible with the SDRAM DIMMs we are using now. The new DDR-DIMMs come with 184 instead of the 168 pins used by SDRAM-DIMMs. The module itself looks almost identical to the older SDRAM, but it has only got one notch instead of the two notches found in SDRAM-DIMMs. "........ ... on-02.html

Unlike 168-pin SDRAM, DDR SDRAM utilizes a 184-pin plug. Although the basic motherboard technology does not need to be changed, DDR SDRAM is not backward compatible on motherboards designed for SDRAM. ..........

Also to tag along on twiztit_momma SDRAM comes in different speeds like PC100, PC133 ...... so you really need to know which it takes for the motherboard.
