Boo. Mornin'! I know the bored feeling all too well....I'm putting off tearing apart the computer. I'm upgrading it today and the instructions make it look like I have to gut the poor thing to do it. hee hee....how long are you working today? You're lucky you can hang out in forums. When I was a secretary for Radio Shack we had this OLD tandy computer that wasn't hooked up to the internet and mostly just didn't work..Yick.

Let'* see....memory.....adding hard drive....adding DVD-R drive.....Sounds easy. Doesn't look quite that easy. I like plug and play stuff. Adding some of that. Finally decided to go with an optical mouse. Adding a USB hub....my last one died.

You probably already know, but just to be redundant...

Make sure both are on the same IDE cable and your current "old" hard drive is set as master and the new one is set as slave with the small jumpers on the connector side of the drive.

Yup, I saw that in the instructions, but I appreciate the reminder. That would be like me to forget and then have to go back in. Sometimes I'm a bit absentminded.

It'll be a piece 'o cake. Don't sweat it. Memory and hard drives.....the DVD only gets touchy if you have driver problems. There'* enough computer people around here, you could do it with a blindfold!
