Hi Guys, my old pre-installed CD/DVD Rom drive (about 7 years old) I think has finally gone t*its-up....have canibalised a 2003 machine (almost brand new when I bought it from a deceased estate 4 years ago and been in dry storage) and installed a Samsung SM-332 DVD Rom, unfortunately I can't find the installation disc. Does anyone know where I can get a free installation/driver download please? (Download.com doesn't have it) and also, forgive my ineptitude (have been working nuts off on converting the old barn for SWMBO's new office) but I cleaned the the tower unit out (yuk yuk yuk!!!) when I installed the unit and don't know if there are two or three connections. The unit lights up and operates manually but the computer doesn't recognise it as new hardware.
Regards in anticipation

You don't need any disks. It should show up in My Computer straight away.
