Installing 2 CD drives...Whats Wrong?
Posted on 2002-07-02
I have a CDR/RW and a 52x.
The CDRW is a BTC 2xR 2xRW 6xRead
The 52x is some no-name dodge job.(sorry)
They installed automatically fine the firs time.
I then removed my CDRW and put it back in later.
It didnt work after that.
I tried to fix it by making it the Secondary master, and
my CDROM the slave.
My CDRW runs like a dream now however.
No matter what i do,(i've tried everything), the other
drive is undetectable/uninstallable. (except for a few sightings of E: in explorer)
It must be a hardware problem, because both my drives
are usually detected in the Bios startup (either primary slave, secondary master, secondary slave depending on the jumpers), but now just the CDRW is detected,
What do i do? Is my CDROM finished?
