DVD-RW is not working properly

By pennyvang ·
Hi i have Dell dimension 1100. I replaced my CD-drive with my sister's DVD-drive. But is there a program where I have to install for the DVD drive to work? my computer doesn't detect the DVD-drive and ever since I put in the new drive my computer is VERY SLOW.

You've got the wrong device drivers . . .

Go into your system's Device Manager and uninstall the drivers for the 'old' CD drive.

If the DVD drive didn't come out of a Dell system you've got a problem, as they tend to prefer Dell parts.

Find out the make and model of the DVD drive and go to the website for that Manufacturer. You should be able to download the specific drivers for the model you have installed.
