IBM NetVista: can't replace CDROM with DVDRW

\015 I bought an older IBM NetVista machine, running Pentium 4 and Windows XP. I added RAM to reach 2 gigs, and then replaced the CDROM with a DVDRW. At that point, it went to Hell in a handbasket. Apparently, swapping out the CDROM isn't allowed by the BIOS. Is there a way to get around this so I can put my DVDRW on the computer?\015

Some DVDRW's need to have there independent port. Go to your bios and change your start up to your hard drive instead of CD if this is the case. Check and see what USB driver your running. Should be running 2.0 or higher, this means that it is high speed. The problem I see is that your computer is picking up the DVDRW first and the drivers are not installed. Go to the manufacture web site and download the most recent drivers. If you can't find the site just let me know. Let me know what brand, and model you have and I'll send you the link.
