Hiya guys, have just put in a Toshiba DVD-RW in my friends computer, there wasnt any cables or installation disc included as it said it didnt need any. Here lies the problem tho - When i started up the computer, no new hardware was found which was strange, so i looked under My computer, and there wasnt even a D or E drive! The only existing drives was C, A and then the other things such as network and stuff. Both drives on the computer open and close and the green light comes on! Even when i put a disc in it did not detect anything. Apparantly, there was a D drive there before. What have i done wrong? How do i fix this?
If you look at the back of the drive there are two rows of pins. You will see a small link connecting the upper and lower ones together. On the top of the drive there should be a table showing you where to put the jumper/link.
