I just replace an old CD drive with a memorex DVD recorder drive in my Dell Dimensions.
The problem I'm having is that it shows the as a DVD-Ram drive but when I put a blank DVD in is switches to show a CD rom
I left the CD rom in place and it doesn't even show up anymore. They initially did but really haven't worked.
I installed the software and it worked one time but not anymore. now my computer is running VERY slow.
Any suggestions?

Are these IDE drives in a Desktop? Did you set the jumpers correctly?
