I recently installed a dvd-rom and have been noticing a lot of heat.

My discs come out hot after being in the drive for only a couple of secs.

can this ruin the data stored on the discs?
how bad is this for my pc?

I never had this prob w/ my cd-rom I took out.

I have the rom jumpered to cabel, which is what was said to do in HP pavilion upgrade doc.

I dont know why this is but in my Bios i have a primary master=maxtor(c)
no secondary master
primary slave = mitsumi writer(f)
secondary slave = dvd rom(e)

does this seem right?
and could this ,in your opinions, be contributating to the heat.

I also have another oddity, when i go into my computer it says there is a (D- drive) but i only have 2 slots. f for the writer an e for the rom, I never paid it too much mind cause everytyhig seemed to work right, till I put in the Aopen dvd-rom an it started feeling a little too warm?

any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated thanks.

Depending on where the CD drive is mounted, this could be perfectly normal. If it's all working, and the case fans are running properly, I wouldn't lose sleep over it.

As far as a D: drive, your hard disk is probably partitioned into two logical drives, what do you see on D: when you open it in My Computer?
I dont see anything.
when i doubel click the d icon it say to insert a disk.
and when i go into properties it says 0 used space and 0 free space.
