    hey thanx for your reply.

    i should have mention that i had my dvd set up on the secondry port, and they it was working perfectly fine till i changed the internals over, ive tested my data cable it works fine.

    the only thing i can think of is that some how i damaged the secondry port.

    i've now set my dvd as a slave to my hard drive but would still rather run my dvd on the secondry port, as i have a second hard drive of music & photos that was originaly set as the slave.

    on the off chance that my secondry port is fine i'd like to hear of any other possible solutions thanx:)

Thats maybe due to the data cable thats the flat cable that transfer the data from your motherboard to the dvd in the back of your hard drive and the back of your dvd there are some pins and a little block made by plastic . that is call a jumper and thats what does the settings for your drivers and on top of the hard drive it has a diagram to set them the dvd has that one to but is on the back next to the power conexion so your hard drive needs to be set as master and if they are using the same data cable the dvd needs to be set as slave

I'm trying to install a PC-DVD Game to my LG CD-ROM CRD-8521B, It plays CD's but wont play DVD's of any sort. Really need help...

The CD rom is limited to CD's. In order to read a DVD, you will need to install a DVD rom. My suggestion is to get an external DVD Burner - i just bought a Samsung slim external DVD burner that reads / writes CD's and DVD's.
You will have no luck ever reading a dvd in a cd rom.

I have a dvd rom and wish to swap it to a dvd rw.

No. Unfortunately. Different manufacturers use different interfaces internally for their drives. Even different drives from the same manufacturer cannot be "swapped" in this manner.

I hope this helps.

I recently bought a lite on sohc 5236k, unfortunately it didnt come with a manual so i am unsure of the installation and set up can you help dave

If its an internal burner, you have to open your computer case, remove your old drive and note the setting ont he back, the "jumper" will be on either M, S or CS. Select the same setting on your new drive and replace it inside the case. For step by step
