Sorry about that. I ran out of characters in the title.
My question is, I have a Dell Latitude D610 computer with Windows XP Professional as the OS, and it has an optical drive, a CD/RW, DVD-ROM drive. I purchased an external DVD burner recently, and when I tried to install it to burn DVD's, for some reason, the machine detected there was new hard drive on it, but when I looked in the My Computer section, the external hard drive didn't appear on there, and this is strange because every time I plug in my printer or my mp4 player, it detects them and lets me do whatever I want with those drives, but I don't know what's up with the DVD-RW drive I bought. Could it be possible that a computer that already has internal optical drive, like an internal CD-RW drive, the user cannot use an external DVD burner on the machine? I hope I made sense. This DVD-RW external drive, in the other Dell Computer I had, a Dell Inspiron Mini 1010, it had no optical drive at all and I used to use it on that computer all the time.
Any advice will be appreciated.
