I want to replace an MSI CD burner with an NEC 3500A DVD burner but when I boot up the drive is not accessible. When I put the old device back then all is ok. Both devices are are connected as master. I've also got a CD Rom as slave and have tried replacing that device but the same thing happens.I've got 2 of the NEC drives and both give exactly the same symptoms so I can't think they were both faulty.Any help in successfully installing would be appreciated.
Try setting both devices as CS (cable select). The new DVD may require an 80 wire connector.
Go into Device Manager and remove the CD drive then reboot with the new drive connected
If the above does not do it, Go into BIOS and try redetect the drive
Thanks Graham and woodchip, I tried setting as cable select and it now recognises the drive!!That gives 2 other problems.Should the CD ROM on the same ribbon cable be set to Master, Slave or CSel?I bought a copy of Nero 6 Suite 1 OEM to use on the new setup (I'd previously got Nero 5). This auto starts setup but then blows up, maybe because the actual and expected serial numbers do not match.Any idea how I can get around this?
If it's NERO OEM they are set to only work with the Drive they are sold with
CS should be fine. Normally a writer should be master and a reader slave, but if it works, leave it as it is.
Uninstall the previous version of Nero first.
