With my second IDE cable I have that connected to a primary cd-rw and a secondary dvd-rw. The dvd (TDK) works fine. I don't know what is wrong with the Mitsumi CD-rw. When I go into control pannel and go to system I will look at my hardware and it will show both cd-roms. When I go to drwatson and go to components I will choose CD-Rom and It will have no information for either of my CD-Roms. The Mitsumi that is not working I can not get it to eject. I have tried with pushing the button and going into explorer and choosing eject for that cd-rom but it will not open. I downloaded the diagnostic software (cdrcheck.exe) but it isn't getting anywhere. I just don't know what is wrong with this and why neither of my cd-roms are not displayed when I go into system information and go to components and CD-Rom.
