Using XP Professional.
There is no indication that I have the two extra DVD Drives.
They both have power and open and close when a DVD is inserted
The existing 2 drives are visable.

How Much (Watts) Power Supply??

In reply to: DVD

I use as rule of thumb: 100 watts per EACH Optical Drive (HD,CD,DVD,Scanner,etc.) You appear to have just upped the amount by 200 watts. If less than 500 watts, maybe you need to upgrade (suggest for the extra $ get one w/ "dual Fans"). Happy
