Not to answer your question exactly but.....

when I fitted an NEC ND1300A DVD/RW I had constant problems until I removed the HP CD/RW that was also fitted - seems there was a conflict between them.

As the DVD writer will also write CD's why bother to have both fitted anyway? Chances are that the CD writer will be a little older and therefore likely to write slower than the DVD drive.

As for the jumpers, I'm sorry but I can't remember....thought they were the same as a HDD jumper

The rules are basically the same as for HDD -- you need to set them as master or slave depending on what your plugging them into and what's already attached. There's normally a diagram on the body of the drive to show the different settings -- or in the manual.

You need to tell us what makes and models you have if you need further info.

The normal method is to have the rewriter as Master and a CD/DVD-ROM drive as Slave - I would assume that in this case the DVD/RW will be the Master and the HP rewriter the Slave.

I would suggest that keying your question into either the NEC and/or HP websites' support page would probably bring up an answer - alternatively a search on google.co.uk.
