A while i had a topic on here asking about my IDE cables because i wanted to replace my cdrom with a cdrw.

Users acklan and root were the ones that helped me figure out that my computer uses a laptop drive, and said all i would have to do is get a cdrw laptop drive.

Well i finally got around to getting one and I'm going to need some help getting it to work and finding the drivers for it.
I can figure out the physical connection stuff.

The drive i got is from a dell laptop, its a Latitude CDRW drive and i geuss the model # is 0M144

heres the page from where i got it off ebay

thanks again for all your help before

Hello. You should not have to install any drivers. It will be plug and play.
