    When you mean install, do you mean as installing a new dvd drive? or just software to do it.

    first you have to find the dvd drive you want, with burning capabillites, * i would recomend zipzoomfly.com and xpcgear.com * next when you have it, you have to make sure you there are expansion bays on your case, next if all those apply above, open your case, place in correst spot, and plug the IDE cable to the dvd drive, and the power supply plug in,, i hope this explains, i suck at teaching , so let me know if you mist something.

    do a right click on your c:drive either in my computer or thru windows explorer. than click on properties which will tell you what size id drive is, whats used & what is free. how many 5.25" bays do you have & are any empty??

    same size as your cd/dvd rom drives but with a blank faceplate if you have an empty bay.

    installing a dvd drive is easy, just look at your computer right now, at the inside, do you see how your dvd drive is in? do the same exact with the new drive,
