Its hard to remember but I think I had everything unplugged only because the way I have it set up I have to disconnect everything to get access to the pc's insides. So I dont see why I would disconnect and then reconnect only to put in a dvdrw. Knowing me I disconnected everything to get the pc out of its enclosure in the desk (there is air circulation there btw) and then I put the drive in before plugging in just the power, mouse, keyboard, monitor...especially since I knew I had trouble with that drive before.

I ask bcus my buddy recently fried his mb by hooking up his pc powercord first to the wall then to his pwrsuply...then a major spark! Mb RIP
My advice is to put that mb to rest and move on to a bigger and better pc
Hehe no sparks on my end. Yeah I think what Ill do is just get a P4mobo combo for now because I was planning at the end of the year building a quad core. I get a sweet deal of a mother board + cpu +copy of windows for $200 at the end of each year. I havent done it in 4 years so I was planning on doing it this year. So I think Ill get a hold me over for now and then go nuts later on this year.

Hey guys thanks for all the help really. I think I found a new forum to check out regularly...a lot of good stuff here.
