Help CD Rewrite drive

  balmad 22:16 14 May 2005

My cd rewriter drive doesn't work as I cannot open its door and a busy light is on all the time. I am sure there is no cd inside. I was thinking of getting a DVD rewriter instead. Will it be easy to install it myself and will it be possible to install DVD rewriter in place of CD rewriter. Does it require lot of knowledge? Where to get the best deal on it.

CD light on all the time is usually

1. IDE cable inserted wrong way round

2. Cable loose at CD or motherboard end
