I went onto ebay and got myself an aopen 5224 crw but when it turned up it had no installation paper work, Being as dizzy as i am i have tried to connect it up and get the computer to find it ( in the add new hardware ) but still no luck i have emailed the chap i got it off but he isn't getting back to me, So if you could help a dizzy person to work out how and what to do in a sort of step by step thing i would be more then grateful.

If you have only a hard drive apart from this CDRW look at the connection to the hard drive and follow to the IDE0 connecter on the mobo.(do not connect CDRW to this as it will slow up the harddrive).
Next to this will be another connector IDE1, if you already have a device connected to this there will be an IDE cable already there.
On the IDE cable half way up will be another connector, connect this to your CDRW and set the plastic cap jumper to the SLAVE position.
If no device connected you need an ide cable from the connector on the motherboard to the CDRW and set the jumper at the back at slave.
Just remember if you have two peices of hardware on one cable one is set at 'MASTER' and one is set at 'SLAVE'.
Don't forget to connect the power lead from the power supply unit to CDRW.
Restart pc and it will be auto detected.

Because you are trying to install the wrong driver.
Go do windows update and windows will install the correct driver for you, this will work on windows xp, vista and windows 7 only, you did no state your OS.
Hope this helps
the 5536-5224 DOESN'T have bluetooth. It has the button but it's not functional. You have to buy a bluetooth chip and install it. Believe me I know, I did it. You can install all the drivers you want but without putting in the chip you will never have bluetooth.
Check your bios version and make sure it is correct bios. You can check the Aopen site to download the new bios and flash utility to install it. Be carefull and make sure that it is CORRECT bios for EXACT Motherboard. The bios can be flashed wrong and leave you with a paper weight. Good Luck
Download and install the upgraded firmware from the above site.
This other site can provode you with the manuals etc.
let me know what happens,
