And you can get one for about twenty bucks and replace it yourself. One cable and one power wire is all it takes. It's fool proof, really. And a Phillips screwdriver, depending on the PC, to remove the old drive.
Sorry I'm not very technical. All of a sudden my drive that I use to download from music cd's and installing things like my printer has suddenly quit running. Don't have any idea why. My printer jammed up the other day and everytime it does this I have to reinstall it on the computer, now I can't so my printer isn't working and I really need to be able to print something important. Does anyone have any idea why this has happened and what to do about it. I am running Windows XP home version. I am hoping I don't have to take the computer in and spend a fortune on it as money is a bit tight right now...I suspect this is what I'll have to do in the end but just wondered if there's something I can do on my own. Thank You. Lynn
