The device drivers for your model computer/laptop can be downloaded from the Dell WEB support site.

To download the drivers from Dell WEB site, select your model desktop or laptop, or a better option, type in the Service Tag number,this is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop.

    Need to replace cd-rom drive, how difficult? dell dimension 3000 pc desktop

    It is not difficult to change cd/dvd drive.
    Open cpu cabinet.
    Then remove icd cable and power cable from cd/dvd drive.
    Then remove screws of old cd/dvd drive.
    Then you can pull it from cabinet from front side.
    Then put your new cd/dvd drive into it's position then lock it with screws.
    Then connect ide cable from motherboard and power cable to drive.
    Then you can use it.
    If you connect to drive with 1 ide cable means if you connect harddrive and cd/dvd drive with 1 cable then set harddrive as master and cd/dvd rom as slave you can set it slave with jumper settings.
    It is in back side of cd/dvd drive.
    There is instruction how to slave it with jumper.
