thanks again for the reply.....

when I go to device manager, it only shows devices that I've got currently on the system--- the other cd drive that I took out, plus another CDRW that I took out over a year ago, arn't shown. I didn't do anything more than just turn off the computer, and take out the drives. So, shouldn't there be some remnants of information regarding these drives, if not in device manager under CD/DVD, where?---- and no I don't know that much about editing the registry..

You should get a program for cleaning out your registry like ultra win clean or norton tools or some other tool and that might take out the bad registry entrys.Then try to install the new drive by itself.
