hi,

i recently got as a gift a dvd/r, but i can get it to work,a message appears and windows doesnt start. do you think it is a problem with my bios? im using a k7s5a motherboard, do you think i should update the bios, if so, how can i do it?

thanks for the help

can you give us some spec of your pc,have you installed it correctly and did you have a cd rom installed already?

I fitted a dvd/rw today and had a couple of problems.

Check your jumper settings, as mine were set wrong and the PC wouldn't start either.

All the info I looked at told me to use the DVDRW on master and dvd rom on slave, but eventually I had to put both drives on cable select and hey presto, it worked!
