Installing a TEAC 4x IDE CD-ROM
Posted on 1998-08-17
Greetings. I used to have a TEAC internal 4x IDE CD-ROM attached to my Pentium 75 motherboard. The motherboard was upgraded, the old motherboard put into a 'new' computer, then I got a new cd rom. Now I'm trying to install the TEAC 4x CD-ROM *back* into the motherboard it originally lived on, but I cannot get it to work.
No matter what IDE I hook it up to, my system hangs after the memory test. I can't hit DEL to go into setup or anything. I know this drive can work with this motherboard because it has before.
I only have one hard drive (primary IDE). The CD-ROM does not have any jumpers for master/slave, but the brief 2-page manual mentions that it has jumpers 0-4 (they call them "straps") that can determine the drive's ID for daisy-chainging purposes.
This of course makes little sense as by definition you can't daisy-chain IDE drives. This drive is NOT a scsi drive, and having IDs does not make any sense.
Has anyone worked with Teach 4X internal IDE CD-ROM drives before???
