I recently purchased an NEC DVD Burner (ND-3520A) from Newegg.com. I have no idea what I'm doing when it comes to hardware installation, and probably should have looked into it a bit more before purchasing this.
My computer came with 2 cd drives - one a burner, and one just a reader. I took out the burner (which was on the bottom, and was plugged into the slots further from the end of the cable [slave?]), and plugged in my NEC drive. Now my computer freezes on the Windows login screen after about 2 seconds. It'll stay like that for about 30 seconds, and then restart. Could it be a problem with incompatable... cable speeds? Or something like that? Or do I need to reconfigure some bios settings?

I'm running Windows XP SP2, on a Dell Dimension 4600. Any help or suggestions you could provide would be greatly appreciated...
