    We are not going to use your CD-ROM at the moment, so we can avoid any compatibility issues. Ok, You need to turn your computer off and open the side door. Now unplug the ribbon cable and the power cable from the old CD-ROM. Make sure the new drive is set as master and is plugged in at the ribbon cable and at the power cable. Also check the ribbon cable at the motherboard to make sure it's still in place. Boot your machine.

    Now we are going to add your CD-ROM back onto your computer. You need to powerdown your machine and revisit your CD-ROM. Make sure it's set to slave and reattach the ribbon and power cables. Boot your machine.

    The problem right now is you probably have both drives set as master.
