Question about Computers & Internet
On the back of the drive, you can see a set of jumpers next to the IDE connector, You should see a jumper already there. From the right, the first 2 pins are for the master drive (MA), the next 2 pins are for the Slave (SL) settings, and the 3rd set of pins are for Cable select (CS). Above the pins you will see the marking that are in parentheses here.
If it is the only CD/DVD drive, you need to set it as MA (master)
If it is a second CD/DVD drive, you need to set it as SL (slave)
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.

Lets get you up and running.
Its on the back of the dvd burner so you have to take it out of the pc to really get a good look at it. it will be really close to the where you connect the power wire and the IDE cable (flat pc cable) .
you can see a picture of them here (although your model will be a little different)
It is possible that there are just little metal spikes (looks kinda like a plug) and no jumpers in sight. In that case you have to get a jumper from somewhere, i recommend a old hard drive, from a friend etc because they only sell in bulk and you don't need 300 jumpers.
Once you find what your looking for, there will be a small diagram right next to them that shows you how to set the jumpers.
I hope this helps you.
