hi i run xp sp2 amd ath 2400 it had a dvd rw and a cd rw....
i bought a new pioneer dvr-112 and replace my cd rw
ive put it in but the computer dosnt recognise it, to start with i had to load in safe mode i now can load properly but neither of the 2 dvd drives show up ive swapped them over and tried that bit it dosnt work
i though it would have been really easy, any ideas why it wont work? cheers will
what configuration do you have on the ide cables dont put two dvd drives on on cable mine is set to ide 1 dvd rw set to slave + hdd set to master ide 2 dvd rw on cable select thats the only way they whould run together after an hours booting and swaping
I've my two optical drives on the secondary IDE channel as well Stuartli, the DVD Rom is set as master as thats the one I use for everything except burning and it's inthe top bay, my DVD-RW is set up as slave and I have never had any problems with them.
