CD-rewriter on Windows 98

  3rdday 10:50 07 Nov 2003

I have fairly ancient Compaq PC running Windows 98 into which I want to put a spare TEAC CD re-writer that was in my other PC. Will this just work after I physically install it, or will I need to find drivers for it first?

a CDRW will work with w98 - I have one working here at work on a P166mmx running w95- - have to close everything down for it to work though but it works.
Wouls sya wop it in there, try it, if it doesn't work download drivers from the net.

should have read that before 'hitting the tit' - - - of course I meant "would say wop it in there - -"

I have three CDRW's on two comps running 98. You have no problems just exchange the connectors of the cd to cdrw and set the jumper on the back of cdrw to the same as the cd. You may have to go into bios to get it auto detected but I do not think so

Worked fine. Thank you.
