Out of all the questions I put you though, I decided to take 1 step at a time,
the best way I think for me.
Here goes, more questions...
I bought the Sony DRU-V204A dvd/cd rw drive.
I'm working on as we speak.
I didn't realize that the screws went into clips
and the burner with the clips attached slid into the pc.
What I need to know now is this:
The cd/rom that's in it now is on top.
As you told me before,I have the cable select--slave--master in that order.
In the old cd/rom drive there is a clip in the cable select. with no wire connected to it.
In the new dvd/rw drive there is also a clip but in the master spot.
Are these just little clips without any attachments?
Where should the old drive and new drive, clips be located?
Also, in the old drive there was a digital audio--analog audio.
The wire was connected to the analog audio.
Did not see a wire for the new drive.
How should I hook this up?
I saw the IDE connection with pin 1 and the power wire,
and where the other wires were coming off them.
I believe I got that part straight.
Sorry for the book.....
