SOURCE: CD Drive not working at all
If its the only CD Drive on that IDE cable it wouldn't be set as slave, would be on Master.
Yes you can go to http://www.driverguide.com you can download updated drivers for IDE and SATA on your PC.I checked on Acer support but there website isnt't working correctly for me.
Try updating the drivers, and try both drives again one at a time.

Your problem is very common,the only reason found is that,your cd or dvd drive is corrupted,
You will have to install new windows.

There are a couple of possiblities but first you have to try the external hard drive into another computer, if this works then you may have a problem with USB drivers or the IRQ
if the external hard drive didnt work with other computer, then it is possible that the ext hard drive does not have working partition and or a logical drive,
to check this right click you computer icon then click Manage.
On the left side select Disk Management, then you should be able to see all your harddrives even the cd rom drive from there right click and create partion for any un partitioned drive.

This computer has 2 IDE connectors. These are parallel ATA connectors.
See: Dell Dimension 8200 Specs
If you get a drive, look for IDE on the package. IDE, PATA and ATAPI are near synonomous. They use a 40 pin flat ribbon cable to connect.
Thanks for using Fixya.
