Although the OEM product did not come with an installation manual, it was fairly standard, as is any optical drive install. Most basic users could figure it out quite quickly. As I stated before, I needed a Molex-to-SATA power connector to perform the install, which many users with older power supplies may find necessary as well. To start, just plug your SATA cable into the motherboard and then connect to the alloted spot on the back of the optical drive, then connect the power connector.
Screw in at least two screws to secure the drive to the chassis. I usually only have two screwed in on my drives; I hate having to open both sides of my case to swap out drives. It is a personal preference and if you are afraid of excess vibration, I suggest tightening all four screws into your drives.
Once the drive is secured, turn on your PC and Windows should auto-detect the new drive and install the correct drivers with out any major hiccups.
When you boot up the CD, it looks something like the image below, listing all of the applications I mentioned before: PowerDVD, PowerProducer, Nero Express, and InCD. If you do not already have applications like these already installed, I strongly suggest trying them out.
