  1. i own a computer w/ a DVD+R and my dvd player and dvds i bought are all -R, so i got a DVD-/+R from my friends computer. I believe i know how to install the drives, but do i need any drivers, or software to get the drive running once installed?

    thanks

    You don't need any drivers. If you have Nero and it came with your old drive then it will not work with your new one. You may need the software that came with the other (+/-) drive.
