I got a new motherboard that I though supported DDR and DDR2 memory. When I got the slot was just slightly off and the DDR memory would not fit. Here is the motherboard:

and the memory:

The motherboard guide says it takes DDR. I am missing something or will this memory indeed not work with this motherboard?

No, the motherboard only takes DDR2.

Are the noches different between DDR and DDR2 different in the module?

Becuase in the manual, under installing memory under B it says DDR/DDR2 module.

Yes, the notches are different between DDR and DDR2.

Your right, it says DDR/DDR2 under B in the manual, but on every other place in the manual it says only DDR2. They probably were lazy and used the same table in many different manuals.

Okay, I just wanted to clear up the notches cause the guy who put it together said that DDR2 is backwards compatible with DDR. Thanks mate.

It could be that DDR2 sticks fit in DDR slots but not DDR sticks in DDR2 slots...

DDR and DDR2 and both electrically and physically incompatible... and DDR and DDR2 will never be compatible with DDR3 (coming in a few short years)
