I'm trying to replace my 4 year old DVD ROM, which is playing up, with a DVD writer. I've followed the instructions - what there is of them - to the letter, incuding setting the jumpers to master. Boot up goes normally and it detects the new drive but then it freezes up. I don't know what to do now - any suggestions please?
I now have my cd writer as master and dvd writer as slave. This time it detected the new drive as dvdrw (before it was detected as cdrom) and the it detected the cd writer and froze!!! By the way I have to have the writer in the top slot as the cable won't connect to it in the bottom slot - the writet is about an inch shorter than the old one and the cable won't reach.
