to my P4 which had DVD-rom(interneal) i newly installed CD-RW rom(internal). I  made dv-rom as secondary master and used the cd-rw rom the seconday slave.(or the other way i hope it does not make any difference).

the problem arises when i try to use both the devices. If there is previously a cd in cdrw-rom and i put a cd in the dvd-rom then the compute just hangs. (and vice verssa).I can not use both the devices at the same time. what is the problem? I've checked the jumper.

could power be a case.?

and you pls tell me all the possibility.
