I have a Dell PC with a DVD/CD-RW drive. I wish to add a Pioneer DVD Re writer DVR-111D. The jumper on the Dell DVD is set to Cable Select at this time. I installed the Pioneer drive and put the jumper on the Dell to Master and the jumper on the Pioneer to Slave. I just got a series of beeps when booting up. I have tried other configurations including just having the Pioneer wired up in isolation but still got the beeps. Can anyone advise on correct setup?
I was trying all last night with, as I thought, every possible configuration, including both of cable slelect on both and making the end one the Master and the middle one the slave - all to no effect. This morning I reinstalled with both on cable select and bingo it works!! I think last nightwas one of those nights when I should have walked away and come back to later. Thanks both for your replies.
