xp ignores dvd drive after hibernation

  ptrklly 23:39 10 Feb 2003

I recentlyinstalled a TDK Cyclone 321040 cdrw and switched my pre-installed dvd to a slave device. They both work fine BUT when my computer (XP home)emerges from hibernation the dvd is absent from the display in My Computer and will read no disks.
Anyone goy any ideas?

Have you got the jumper on the right pins for slave?? go to device manager remove your drive and reboot it should then show new hardware found.
This does sound like a jumper problem to me.

I think the jumper might be set to "cable select". I'll give it a go.

I checked. The jumper was set to cable select. I set it to slave and tried it out of hibernation and seems to have work. many thanks philip2. By the way, do you know why this happens?
