    I tried to replace my cd writer w/ a dvd writer. There were only two
    cables connected to the cd writer (power & IDE)which I put on the dvd
    writer. When I turned the pc on, it didn't recognize the dvd writer or
    my cd drive. What happened?

    Thanks for any help.

    I had a freind run into the same problem. What solved his problem was
    even thoue you turn off the computer or reboot it, it still dont
    redetect the devices on older computers. So what we had to do was
    unplug the computer from the wall then boot it up again.

    Tom Swift vaguely muttered something like ...
    If someone's st00pid enough to install a DVD writer without reading the
    instructions and acting upon them, maybe just unplugging the computer from
    the wall is all that's _really_ needed ..

    ....make sure you have the proper driver(s) for
    the drive...or/and, uninstall the s'ware, defrag, re-install
    the s'ware...forget that 'pull the plug outta the wall' crap...
