Hi Guys/Gals

I have a Dell Dimension 2400 PC for which I have installed a second optical drive. It already had a CDRW drive and i have installed a DVDRW drive in the second bay. The drive i installed is a Samsung SH-S182D. The drive is not recognised by Windows so i checked the BIOS and it is not recognised there either. I set the jumper setting to CS which the manual said to do but this has not resolved the problem. Any ideas ????

set one to master and the other to slave if on the same cable
