That's a new one on me...

A jumper will be supplied with the optical drive and, on the rear, you will find a small line of pins - there should be Master and Slave markings to indicate where the jumper should be placed depending on requirement.

A rewriter is normally set as the Master and another drive on the same Secondary IDE cable (such as a CD/DVD-ROM) set as Slave.
