    Thank you so much! If I am just adding this dvd drive to an empty port, do I also need to buy the cables (is that the right term?)

No you can replace it with that drive as long as you get a ata cable for the new drive, I don't know if they have the sata drives out for the DVD's yet or not. butthey will fit regardless, you may need the rails off the old drive to make it work so don't throw it away, please rate me if this helps and if you need more asstance please post here and I can tell yo what the best price is and where to buy. And you want to get a +- R RW DVD burner so it is compatable with all types of disks and will be able to use on cd's at 56x

My Computer doesn't recognize my internal dvd drive.

remove dvd drive, remove the dirvers, turn off computer, leave off for about 2 minutes, go to add new hardware, let it search, when it asks you if you installed it say no, it will tell you to do so, , turn off puter, plug dvd drive in, start it, let the puter do it's bootup stuff, if it dosent say it found it, go into control panel, add new hardware, let it go thru the checking phase, if you have driver disk, it should tell you it needs them, make sure all power plugs and comunication cables are tight and connected in right places on mother board, .....hope it helps, might have to do it a couple of times it a tedious thing, you'll get there....good

DVD player won't play DVD

Try downloading a DVD player such as uberdownloads. If the player still doesn't work, then look for an mpeg 2 decoder on the website for your video card manufacturer. If you are using windows XP check the region code on your DVD player that matches the region code on the DVD. This is done by selecting my computer, moving the mouse to your dvd player, pressing the right mouse button, selecting properties, and look for the region code. For the US use region 1.

I guess you have a Read-Only drive - ROM. You need a CD/DVD RW drive for burning.
