Got a Win 98 PC with DVD drive already fitted. I want to add a CD/RW drive I've been given to it.
Instructions with the CD/RW aren't very clear. I can see how to set the jumpers, but am not sure if I should make the CD/RW the slave to the DVD - or make the CD/RW the master and the DVD the slave ? will it affect the speed if they're the wrong way round ?
Also - the current DVD is mode 4 in the bios - should I set the bios for the new CD/RW to a specific mode ? or to automatic detection ?
A Cable Select option needs a motherboard with this feature available.
The CD/DVD-ROM drive should be Slave, the rewriter Master and DMA should be enabled for both; if you have Nero, disable Auto Insert Notification for the CD/DVD-ROM drive as the software controls both drives.
