i have seperate cdrw and dvd rom, is it best to upgrade the cdrw to a dvdrw and is it an easy diy job ??

Yes very easy.

Swap the CDRW for the new DVD burner, making sure the jumper on the rear is set to the same position as the drive being removed, in this case it should be 'Master'

A DVD RW should be the Master and the DVD ROM the slave on the same IDE cable. If you need help to do this please ask, as it is easy to do once inside the PC.

Also the drive letters may change, which will affect any shortcuts. Once again, easy to change.
