Default Second Drive

My old computer I have just replaced had a dvd rom & a cd writer and I
would quite often use the the disc to disc function.

However I have made a boo-bo, on my new computer it has a Nec
dvd + - r/rw 16 x dual layer disc drive,which serves as a dvd rom.

However that is all it has it does not have a second disc drive.

How do I overcome this problem,what would I need to fit in order to
continue disc to disc operation.
My hard drive if any help is a 160Gb 7200rpm 8Mb sata drive.
Thank you

well, what you would have to do is simply get another cd drive, or dvd drive whatever you prefer, and just install it in the computer, hook it up and install any software or drivers that came with it. or you could take one out of your old computer and put it in the new one, and if you're running xp, it will automatically detect the drive and it will be usable. make sure on the second drive you set the jumper to slave.
When all else fails...Ham Radio!

I still have the same old HP DV9700T laptop I've had for years...still kickin'
