How to install a burner

Hello and Merry Christmas.

I just got a cd burner, and I can't get it to run.  I'm new at this.  The cable from my old cd drive has a secondary plug that I used for the burner. So when I rebot my computer does not see either cd drive.  I can only get them to work if only one is pluged in.  If any one can tell me what to do, that would be great.  Thanks

Rick

Have you set your burner's jumper to a slave? If not there a little black plastic at the back of the burner, ususally the jumper would be at a master when u first purchase it. Set the jumper to a slave(second slot next to the primary).
