I've been trying to finish copying some discs for a CD-R trade, so I can install my new CD-ROM drive. Naturally, I ran into several different problems, which tied me up for hours... Never a break! (as Jack Nicholson's character in As Good As It Gets liked to say).

Anyway, the discs are ready to go now, and I've even learned a few things in the process. Now to install the drive...

    Thin Lizzy, The Boys Are Back In Town

I installed the CD-ROM drive fairly quickly, but configuring it has taken a while. I recall a problem with this motherboard from when I installed the CD Writer. I think the VIA chipset doesn't support DMA properly for CD drives... but I'm going to have to do a bit of research to figure out what to do. It works, but not with all software. I'm going to watch a video now (Men of Honor with Robert De Niro and Cuba Gooding Jr.).
