    Am trying to replace an existing DVD - R drive with a new 8x DVD + - Drive. Thought would be plug & play. When I pull the old and put in the new, get BSOD. XP recognizes new device, starts to install, then blue screen hits. Have set new drive to Cable Select (as old one was). Have also pulled old drive and rebooted without it in PC to free up resources, then rebooted again with new drive. Nothing works.

    Have XP Home on this PC. Any help would be much appreciated.
