I run Win Me. I had a DVD ROM and CD burner. I took the CD burner out and replaced with a DVD burner and had problems with drive letters, like more appearing than I have drives. I think this is because I found some tiny plastic sockets which I understand I shuild have put onto some pins to make the drive either a master or salve. How can I tell which one I should do. I have used the drive is it alright to put the plugs on later.

Hi The little plugs are jumpers if it was me I would set my burner to master by placing the jumper on it and remove any jumper from the dv rom reboot and all should be fine kopite

Have you got your cd/dvd drive on a sererate ide cable to your harddrive, if you have put the jumper vertically accross the two pins marked ma, the other two sets of pins should be marked sl and cs, if your cd/dvd is on the same cable as your harddrive set the jumper to sl.
