old one out new one in connect up exactly the same make sure you set the jumper the same and windows will detect it on boot up and load the driver

It shouldn't make a scrap of difference what make of drive is installed - in fact a lot of them are merely rebranded by companies from specialist manufacturers.

Incidentally, BigPockets has just started selling the Sony CRX230AE CD-rewriter for £15.99...:-)
