Installing CDRW drive

  Rogmur 17:54 31 Dec 2003

A very Happy new year to all Forum Members.

I am hoping to upgrade my Dell PIII 550Mhz (Runnig Win98).
I wnat to install a CDRW drive (Artec 52X 32X.
However, I have a Iomega Zip 250MB Drive (as drive "D")which no longer works.
I also have a DVD ROM drive (drive "E".
Therefore, should I set the new CDRW drive as Master or Slave? The manual is somewhat ambiguous.
Any way this is my first time installing a CDRW drive and I am very nervous about it all.

Thanks in advance

If the ZIP drive doesn't work remove it and look at what it is set to. Then set your new drive to the same and install.

Hi Rogmur, And a very happy new year to you. Your set up should be as follows :- 'C' Drive (your hard drive) set as master on Primary IDE, Your CD/RW set as master on Secondary IDE, your DVD/ROM as slave on secondary IDE. Cheers, Bill
