    The DVD drive and hard drive should work fine. No extra drivers should be
    required. The operating system already has them. If you mean DVD playback
    software, you will need to purchase some. I prefer Power DVD. It works
    great.
    Try:

    If you use the cables that came with the 5000, be sure the DVD drive and
    hard drive are still jumpered CS for Cable Select. The memory might not
    work. The 5190 uses PC100 168-pin SyncDRAM. Many newer 5000 series models
    use newer 184-pin DDR memory. If your 5000 uses DDR, the older PC100 won't
    even fit the slot.
