Apologies for asking what must have been answered many times.Have ujust bought a Pioneer IDE all singing DVD.Already have another which seems no longer capable of writing DVDsBoth share an IDE 80 wire cable, both have jumpers fitted. No pin numbers or diagram of jumpers on either driveSeems the default looked at from the back, is to connect the right hand of two rows of 2.(6 pins in all)I have tried the left hand vertical pair and the centre pair. Only one drive will show, it's plainly upsetEither drive will work on its own, but not so far as a pair.
click here scroll down to the photoYou have to either set one as master and one as slave (master on end of cable)or set both as cable select.
Its been a very messy day but I'm sure your advice will sort it when I come back refreshed.Your search found what I had spent ages looking for - fruitlessly.Not such a terrible pun?
If you set them as Master and Slave - it doesn't matter where you connect each one on the cable - they stay Master and Slave as per the jumpers.If you set them both to Cable Select - them automatically the one on the end of the cable will become Master, and the one on the middle connector Slave. That's why it's called Cable Select.Cable Select only works on 80-wire cables.
PS - the jumper positions on optical drives is normally stamped into the casing, and is often difficult to spot.
Lazy by nature, I just made both cable select and there they were showing in their correct identities.
