Okay heres the deal, I have a new Dual Layer OEM DVD-RW Drive that I am about to install, something I have never done before!Just a question, apart from slotting the drive into the bay and connecting the IDE cable, is there anything else I need to be looking out for befor I start?TIA
Make sure that you "ground" yourself because of the static build-up. The static may not be strong enough for you to jump up or even feel some-times, but is strong enough to damage your computer's components!!!!!
These are the only other things that you need to look at, i.e. is the drive to be a slave or a master on the primary or secondary IDE chain...The jumper settings should be explained on the drive..I would go for the drive as a primary master on the second IDE chain

Hi, also if you are using XP make sure the drive and software are compatable with XP - not all drives are!!
Many thanks all - we are now up and running!
glad to see you cracked it and all is well.(in a nice way of course)New system rebuild next :o) no problem!
