Hi here
I just joined this forum. I figured I need to join a forum cuz i've been doing a lot of computer work that I haven't done before. Anyways, today, I installed an external freecom cd/rw drive on my new laptop because I couldn't read from a CD (which I still never read) that I was working on on my old laptop. I was using this external CDRW drive on the old lappy and I burned that CD on it so I thot, i'd install it on my new lappy just to read it and then uninstall it and it would be fine. Now, I've restarted my lappy a few times and still don't have a DVD-RW drive. Anyone know what I can do?! I need help! I'm getting frustrated!

Thanx!
