    Hello there, I just bought a HP Re-Write Drive & I have no Idea how 2 put it in my computer. I hope someone can help me. I don't know what kind it is. It says 10/x4x/32x ATAPI CD=ReWritavle Drive. It also has on it +5V DC 1200mA & +12V DC 800mA. I have a home made computer if you need the name of what parts I have in the inside I can get that for you also. There is also no wires or straps or what ever you call it with it all I have is the Drive and a warranty. (I bought it at a sale thing.) So, if anybody knows of a web site that I can go to, or anything that can give me directions to puting it in my computer (specifically). Thank you very much.

    So is this an internal or an external drive? Since it was some kind of "sale" item that is probably the reason there wasn't anything else in the box but the drive and the warrenty. If it is external all you really need is a USB cable. If it is internal you will just need to connect the power cable and attach it to one of your IDE cables (you should connect it to the secondary master if it is open--just don't connect it on the same IDE as a HD... HDs and CDRoms don't share an IDE very well.) You should be set. Which ever it is plug'n'play should automaitcally recognize it. Oh I almost forgot...if you have no drivers in the box you will have to go to HPs website to get them before you put the CDRW in.

    Just my opinion, so take it for what it's worth.

    If you have absolutely no idea how to install this drive, then I seriously doubt anyone will be able to provide you with enough effective assistance through an on-line forum to get it functioning correctly.

    I definitely recommend that you have this drive installed by a technician.
