OK I want to remove my DVD from the system and use only the CDRW in the sys. Is there anything special I need to do.
BTW I am running Win2K.

If the DVD drive and CD are on the same ribbon cable, one is Master and the other Slave. In that situation, the CD will need to have jumpers(small plastic blocks with metal jumpers wires inside)set to Master on the back of the drive unit. They are usually found between the ribbon cable connection and the power supply cable. The setting can usually be found written/stamped on the drive by the jumpers. In computers with both drives, usually the DVD is set to master and the CD set to slave, so most likely you will have to switch the jumpers.

Just go to add remove programs and uninstall any dvd software
Then go to add remove hardware and remove it or disable it.
If your going to remove from machine then remove, etc.
