I need to install my dvd-rw drive. Is this an easy task to do or should I just take it in to a computer store for installation? I will be removing my cdrw and replacing it with the dvdrw. I will be using the dvdrw for ripping/recording and using my dvd rom for reading movies and music. I’m also running Windows XP Professional on the FAT32 system. Will the dvdrw running ok?
I checked out the system information and heres what I got:
Diskette Drive A: 3.5inch, 1.44MB
Diskette Drive B: Not Installed
Primary Drive 0: Hard Drive
Primary Drive 1 OFF
Secondary Drive 0 CD-ROM Reader
Secondary Drive 1 CD-ROM Reader
A suggestion was also made to make the dvdrw the Secondary drive and the dvd rom the slave drive. Right now, I believe my cdr drive is hooked up as the slave drive which is listed as Secondary drive 1 right?
This would mean I would have to switch the cables. Is this pretty much it? Is it just a strait swap with nothing else such as a BIOS update right?
