Swapping out CD-ROM drive for DVD-RW,what steps?

  myfoot 23:11 30 Jan 2008

Just ordered a DVD-RW for my PC which already has a CD-ROM and and a CD-RW drive.
So was wondering what the correct procedure is?

Do I have to uninstall CDROM drivers, then switch off machine and remove CDROM replacing it with DVDRW restart and install new drivers or how is one to proceed in this matter.
thanks in advance

Nope Just Power down your rig and swap your drives over windows will pick up and install the necessary drivers ect.
