I installed a new Samsung SATA DVD Writer to replace my old faulty IDE writer. The PC recognises it, but it will not respond, by which I mean the door will not open, and if I open it manually and insert a CD, the PC will not read it. This is the first SATA device I have installed. Have I missed something?
The machine is an emachines 5250, Pentium 4, 1.97Gb RAM running Windows XP Pro, SP3
