I tried to change the internal drive for a HDD, but doesnt work !!! I tried different configurations Master, slave, CS.... Why its seems to work only with DVD or CD drives but not with hard disks?, I mean, internally both are IDE.

Re: change DvD for HDD

This is the email they sent me:
QPS was the maker of those devices and the chipset firmware did not support HD, just Optical drives which is why it does not work.
These chipsets have been discontinued and there is no support for them.

Cant get burner to reconised on pc

Since this is an IDE drive, please check the Master/Slave/Cable Select jumpers, if you've connected the drive in the same cable of your hard drive, you should check its jumper settings, if hard drive is set as Master, the DVD writer it should be as Slave, if the hard disk jumper is set to Cable Select (CS), the DVD should be in the same way too. After this check if DVD drive is identified correctly in BIOS, it's a good idea to set drive detection as Auto, if this all is OK, check its driver in Windows, it must be appear as a DVD-RW drive.

Computer will not detect dvd burner

Is the drive powering up . Is the light on the front of the drive always on.If always on the cable would be put in upside down change either on motherboard's side or on the drive. Is your drive a SATA or IDE. If IDE and the drive is sharing a cable with another drive or HDD then you will have to set the master/slave jumper found behind the drive. Look behind the drive and you will see a jumper with more connectors.

Generally there are three options C/s,Master,Slave. Removing the jumper completely also makes the drive a slave. Make sure the other drive is slave or master and appropriately change on this drive. IF HDD ( Hard disk) is master make this one slave or vice versa. Now windows should be able to find the drive.

I would like to make this a slave so that my 500 GB PATA HardDrive will be the master as that has my operating system and the Plextor PX-716A drive will be the slave?

You need to configure the jumper at the back of the drive as shown in the following picture


Configure the CD/DVD drive as slave, configure the hard drive as Master.

Dvd clashes witm my software of my printer

On the back of the drive is a jumper for M (master) S (slave) CS (cable select)

It sounds like that may be in the wrong position.

If you have two devices trying to be Master or two trying to be slave that will make boot up very slow or not at all.

Double check how the cables and jumpers are arranged.

POSITION OF SLAVE/MASTER JUMPER on rear of unit Toshiba-Samsung SH-M522 Combo

You'll find jumper instructions in the user manual which is available on Samsungs website ( ). However, most drives have jumper setting key on the drive label. The choices are usually master or slave or cable select.

Installed hp dvd r/rw drive, computer does not recognize hareware

You may want to check your Master/ Slave or CS settings on the back of drive.
If you are useing one cable, IDE cable for both the HD and CD, the Hard Drive sould be set to Master and the secondary drive ( CD ) will be set to slave.
If two cables are used, both should be set to master.
You can F-10 into your BIOS settings to check and see if machine is seeing the connection changes.

LG DVD Drive

the scsi and raid refers to sata hard drives or ide in a raid configuration. the dvd drive if on a cable on its own should be set at master, if on a cable with another drive then set it at slave, cable select doesnt always work as the motherboard cannot identify the ide source. Youe DVD drive will be listed in device manager under cd/dvd drives, click the + sign and if it's listed there, right click it and select uninstall. Restart the pc and see if it's reinstalled automatically, it should do, then be ready for use, if you still cannot see it in my computer check the drives ide cable and swap the drives over if necassary, if still not showing the drive needs to be replaced.
