Replacing drive, what steps to take?



I’m going from a Lite-On CD Burner to a new NEC 3540 DVD burner. Besides, uninstalling Lite-On’s driver from Device Manager; are there any other steps I should perform before making the switch?




There is no driver specific to Liteon so don’t mess with that. Just make sure you are using am 80 wire cable, and make sure your jumper is set correctly as master or slave. Otherwise, Win XP will detect the new drive automatically. Usually the BIOS will do the same but you might want to go to setup as it boots to see that this is so.


Great, thanks!


Just for the record, this drive installed extremely easily. No muss, no fuss. I just plugged it in and away it went with Nero and Memorex DVD+R’s.
