new cd-r-rw drive

  Richardy 19:03 01 Jul 2003

I recently fitted a new drive, in addition to my existing cd rom
I keep getting crashes on my computer since fitting and screen saying on start up that disc error need to scan.
Instructions say jumper setting table to Master or slave. I have it as master.Is this correct
Any help much apprecieated

Make sure that one of your devices is set to 'slave'. You cannot have both on 'master'if they are connected to the same IDE header.

The rewriter should be set to Master and the CD/DVD-ROM to Slave; enable DMA for both and, if you have Nero, disable Auto Insert Notification as the burning software controls its operation.

You will need to start audio CDs or CD-ROMs manually as a result.
