Question about Computers & Internet
Pc not recognizing dvd drive
Couple of things to check:
1. Make sure the IDE cable is connected correctly and facing the right way both on the motherboard and on the back of the Drive. Remember on the drive it might not have a guide, but the rule is the stripe faces the power supply connection. On the mother board it normally has a guide that the IDE cable has to fit into.
2. Make sure the jumper settings are set correctly based on the location on the IDE cable the end of the cable requires it to be master most of the time if single drive. If it is running with another drive it has to be set as master or slave if it is on the same cable. Normally best is to set it as cable select. Main thing is it must match the arrangement of your drives.
3. Make sure the ends of the cable on the dvd and the mother board are pushed in all the way, and same for the power.
Hope this helps.
