I'm sure this has been asked before - I've tried 'search' but can't find a match so -

I have a Dell Dimension Desktop running XP Home SP2. I want to swap a failing Samsung CDRW drive with a Sony DVDRW. My question - is it a simple (as I hope) case of removing one and a straight replacement - same connections etc - or (as I fear) a major mecanics job? Thanks

Straight swap as far as cables go.

You may have to load drivers for it as well as software to burn DVDs (Nero is often shipped with the drives.

Many thanks for your very prompt (and welcome from my point of view) response.
