Windows 7: Installing a second dvd drive

Installing a second dvd drive

Ok then, I have a dvd drive ND-2500A from my old PC and want to fit it to my new one as a slave. What problems am I likely to encounter if any or what should I be aware of before fitting it?

Thanks.

As far as it it working? You shouldn't have any problems.

Just remember, as with any component upgrade, shutdown and unplug the power first

Is it an IDE DVD drive ? or a Sata DVD drive. If IDE you will have to set the jumper as slave depending if it is on IDE cable 0 or cable 1

I have two SATA DVD drives and have had no problem. I'm not sure, but I think I had to check a box to show empty drives before I could get it to show in My Computer when there was no DVD in it.
