How do i use my pionner 106 as a reader

hi peeps i need a simple step by step guide on how to use my pioneer 106 as a reader, since updating to the 108 i have a pioneer 106 doing nothing and i thought since they are both pioneer they would run well together cos ive been having a lot of coaster latly and i think its down to the fact that my medion dvdrom doesnt like my 108, i have swapped em over but when i clicked on my computor the 106 wasnt showing up at all, is there some technical way of installing this writer and getting the pc to use it as a reader? any help appreciated!
p.s the more basic the guide the bter :iagree:

is the 106 listed in BIOS ?
are cables and master/slave jumpers set correctly ?
