Hi Guys, help required if poss. My PC which I self built about a month ago has a DVD +/-burner. I decided to add a cdrw to enable me to copy without using Nero's Image which I can't seem to understand. After fitting the new Cd Rom Plug & Play does not see the new Cd Rom. I have made my DVD the master on IDE 1 and cdrw as slave no go not seen. Made the cdrw slave to the Hard drive still it was not seen. I disconnected the DVD and fitted the cd rom as master on its own on IDE 1 and I am able to see it. Help please I am lost.
Djohn, Sorry oops!!! I should engage brain before pen to paper the Dvd and cdrw were and are on IDE 2 as slave and master in that order. re: BBez the drive seems to be seen as Master but not as a slave.No I don't have a spare drive.
MIKE, try setting both drives [Via the jumpers] to "Cable select" connect the master drive to the end connection on cable and slave to the middle connector. Set to "Auto" detect in the BIOS. This may just work and will do no harm, I have both of my hard drives and optical drives set this way.
