I replaced it and everything went smooth until I powered the system on. Smoke went everywhere and I looked inside and the audio wire that goes from the CD RW to the hard drive was glowing orange and burning.
Did I put the audio wire in upside down or something? It was the same wire hooked to the same place as the old CD RW. The connector peice looked the same from both sides so I may have put it in upside down...does that matter?
Is it just Coincidence?
I have more wires, but now I'm afraid to hook it up again LOL
Let me know what you think. The old wire was pretty small and dainty looking. The other ones I have seem to be thicker or newer.
