In a desktop computer, replacement is as easy as unplugging the old drive, removing the screws, pulling the old drive out the front, and putting the new one in. Laptops usually require a specific shape, so you have to purchase a replacement drive from the manufacturer. No drivers are necessary; any CD writing program should be able to use your new CD writer immediately.
