2 burners on win2000

I'm running Win2000pro on a 1 gig p111. I had both a cd burner and a dvd burner installed but wanting to back up dvd software I decided to get another dvd burner. I replaced the cd burner making sure to set the new dvd drive as master (same as the cd} and installed it.When I turned my pc back I found both drive letters had disappeared. I checked the cables and everything was tight, so I unplugged the slave. Now the burner works but when plugging in the second burner,I lose both drives again. I've been told it may have something to do with Win2000 and both drives being identical. Any ideas? Would really appreciate some help with this. Thank You

Did you check the jumpers on the drives? If both are on the same cable, use "master" for one and "slave" for the second. Do not let the drives set to "csl" (cable select) as this could cause BIOS or Windows to reaign drive letters. I currectly run 9 machines with three DVD burners in each, six of which have the same model drive. If you have service pack 4 for Win2k you should not have a problem with seeing the drives. Both drives set to "master" or slave on the same cable will cause BIOS to not see either one.

    I forgot to add, a 1 gig hdd will not be even enough room to edit and burn a DVD. It is enough room for a copy machine to make an image and burn it.

Window 2000 could be a probable cauuse.You could try the following. Update windows by installing the latest hot fixes this would most probably solve the problem if the problem is in windows. if the drives show up in device manager. boot you PC in safe mode and uninstall the drivers of both DVD drives.and reboot normally. If this doesnt work let me know your DVD drive make and model.

Burner not installed message


James, I have found in the past that many computer manufacturers only install a trial version of some software. One major manufacturer, who shall remain nameless custum built a P.C online that included a CD burner, but I found out later that even though they installed the burner, they provided no burning software. It sounds as though you have no CD burning software installed. First, from the start button, go to control panel, then to add remove software. A list will compile showing all software installed on your machine. If you do not have a CD, or DVD burning program installed and your computer came with no CD's( most today do not) that may contain that program, you will probably have to buy your own at this point. Just to clarify, do you only have a CD burner, or is it a CD burner/ DVD ROM, or do you have a DVD burner. If you have a DVD burner, then you are capable of burning both CD's and DVD's. If you need to purchase burning software I would suggest you do an internet search for Nero, This is the software that I use. It works well in addition to being easy to use.On the Nero site I have in the past purchased their OEM version, the OEM versions are usually available at very good prices. I prefer to purchase software online and have a disc mailed to me as opposed to downloading it online just so that I have a hard copy if I ever need it. If you are limited to burning CD's, just get the CD software. If the device you have installed in your computer is a DVD burner, then purchase the DVD software and you can burn on both formats.
