I recently bought an Acer 4X4X32 CD-RW drive. My preferred configuration was to install it as the master on my secondary IDE port and leave my HDD and CD-ROM drive as master and slave respectively on my primary IDE.
However, Windows 98 does not seem to detect the CD-RW drive on the secondary IDE, even after running ADD NEW HARWARE from the control Panel. I have already checked the following:
1)Both IDE ports are enabled in my motherboard BIOS
2)Both IDE ports are enabled in Win 98 device manager|IDE HDD controller
3)CD-RW drive jumper is set as "Master" when connected to the secondary IDE.
I think it's something obvious that I've overlooked, but I can't figure out what it is...
Since I can't use my CD-RW drive on secondary IDE, I've currently hooked it up as the slave in my primary IDE
Any Suggestions ?
