ok, i dont know what cable Packard Bell would put the existing cdrw drive on and whether there will be any other device, such as a hard drive on the same cable, but i think it will be the only device on the cable and master alreay, so if i just replace it and make sure the new drive is set to master, it should take its place and work fine? Am i right in thinking this?
Do new pc's with one cd/dvd drive usually have other devices on that cable?
