DVD RW Installation

  Scarlet 08:24 05 Oct 2003

I am having problems installing a Sony DW-U14A DVD RW, to sit alongside my Toshiba DVD ROM. I've tried configuring my Sony as master and Toshiba as slave, and vice versa. I've tried attaching the IDE cable in all different ways with no success. In all cases the Toshiba works fine, but explorer keeps saying that there is no disc in my DVD RW drive.Any Ideas would be appreciated.

Silly question but, have you read the manual and does it state any preferences for the drive. ie. master slave - ide.1 or 2. Have you tried putting the Sony in on its own?

Have you installed the software?

It's an OEM drive, so didn't come with a manual. I'll try installing it on it's own to see if it makes a difference.

Sorry, the last post was for Mark. I've just looked at your link, which might prove useful. Thanks.

I've installed the DVD RW on its own. It still does not work. However, instead of saying there is no disk in the drive, when I try and open in Explorer, a new window opens, but no files are displayed!
