New dc/dvd rewriter combo


My dvd reader has died. I’m looking to replace it with a cd/dvd rewriter combo. No idea or preference to any particular one.

Should this be ok?

Will it be picked up as new hardware automatically?

I use 11.1 on an old Fujitsu Siemens TBird machine.

Thanks in advance for any help/ advice

Whatever should just work
It will get picked up

Remember to get the right type for your machine
If it’s oldish you will probably be IDE type as opposed to now common SATA
