Turn off your computer and unplug. Remove the left and right side panels.
Step2 Remove the covering of the drive bay that you plan to use for your new CD/DVD Drive.
Step3 Set the jumper. This is the most difficult part involved with the installation process. If you only have one drive for your system set your jumper on the back the drive to Master. If you have two or more set it to slave. Consult your drives manual to see a picture of what a master/slave jumper configuration looks like. It is best to have the fastest drive set as the master.
Step4 After you have set the jumpers insert the drive into the empty drive bay you selected.
Step5 Secure your CD/DVD drive to your computers chassis with screws and a screwdriver. Mounting screws are typically included with your drive.
Step6 Locate and connect the required power and IDE cables to the back of the drive. These cables are keyed, meaning they are shaped specifically for that drive. It's impossible to install the wrong cables.
Step7 Put the side panels back on and plug your computer back in. Turn it on and your computer should recognize the new drives. If they are not recognized you may need to install the drivers, which are usually included on a CD that's included with your new drive.
I hope that helps. If you have any more questions, let me know.
