Ok, I bought a CD Writer to install in my PC (which already has a CD Drive).
When I opened up the PC i noticed that although there were two IDE interfaces, one of them had the Hardrive and CD Rom (slaved), and the other was free.
So I connected the IDE cable and set up the CD writer (master on IDE 2), when I turned the PC on it didnt recognise the new drive. The power indicator on the drive came on fine etc, but the bios and windows just didnt seem to recognise it.
So, I opened the machine up, changed the jumpers on the CD Writer (making it a slave), pulled out the CD Rom, swapped the IDE interfaces (so the CD Writer was slaved to the hard drive) and lo and behold it worked!
Problem is the CD Rom doesnt work (its connected to the 2nd IDE interface). Ive been in the bios, its set on Auto Detect, so I cant figure out what is going on!
Can anyone help me?
