Have a Medion desktop which has a Sony DVD RW installed, which has gone faulty. I have brought a Lite-on DH 20A3h to replace it, do I just take out existing DVD and replave it with new one? Thought I would ask for help before I start.
Further to lofty29s post it is easy but do remove the power lead from the back just in case it fires up as you lean over it to install the drive. Other than that its easy enough as long as you set the jumper correctly as theres nothing else you have to do.
Have installed new unit with no problem, when I turned on computer the Windows XP Start page (Blue Bars scrolling in box)go on and on, I took dogs out for about 45 min and when I got back computer was working,has just started now after about 15 mins waiting. Any ideas what has gone wrong and what I have got to do now.Looking at properties under my computer shows F drive as Atapi DVD A DH20A3H Help!!!
Yes but I had also installed ausb card a couple of days ago and I found that for some reason this seemed to be locking up the system, I also used the jumper link from the old unit and used it on new. System is running much better now and I will ask question about speeding up log in and installing USB huib card later. Thanks for your help.
