cdrw problems!

  french_always_sucked 10:10 20 Aug 2004

i have allready installed a 16x dvd drive, so i installed a 52x cdrw, the thing is they dont work together only when you pull out the ide cable for one of them does the dvd work!
ive set the jumpers so that one is master and one is slave.
im not sure about the bios?/?

can you help me?

I assume that you mean that its not seen in the POST screen? Have you checked your BIOS to ensure that it looks for it? Have you tried swapping them around so that master becomes slave; also have you tried swapping them on the connecting cable. My immediate reaction is that either your need to reset your BIOS or that one of your cable connectors may be faulty.

which do you have as master can u try them the other way around have the dvdrw as master. In the bios you can go into advanced and have the bios do ide and pnp check. This will determine whether it is being seen. Also does it not appear when the comp first boots up.
