CD-R/DVD and CD/DVD-R Drives Conflict.

I have the DVD/CD-R drive as primary master.
And the CD/DVD-R drive as secondary master.
It's on cable select.

It shows up in bios. But not on windows.
I check my computer and they don't show, I check the device manager and I see a ''!'' mark next to them.

They were working fine

The ! means there is a conflict of resources, such as two have the same IRQ number to have the same memory address. You can check this in Device Manager. Click on the top bar "resources by type" then look to see if your HDD is using the same IRQ or Memory addresses as any other device....

    Also a couple of things. Make sure it is on it's on controller. If they are both on cable select then the one closest to the controller is the master and the other in the middle is the slave. Older 40-pin IDE cables do not support cable select. They both have to be on cable select. If they are not being identified by windows then configure the one closes to controller as master with the jumper and other one as slave with the jumper. Good luck let me know how it turns out.

Try setting the jumper on 1 to master & on the other to cable select. See if that fixes your problem. Hope this helps & please take a moment to rate my solution. Thanks.

How do I slave a cd-rom drive in a dimension 1100


Most CD or DVD drives installed in modern computers have a group of short jumper pins on the rear of the drive that determine the master or slave setting for the device. The master or slave setting helps to identify the drive when it shares a connector cable inside the computer with another device, such as a hard drive or even another optical drive. Without the master or slave jumper setting, the computer would not be able to tell one device from another or from which drive to retrieve or write data. Configuring a CD drive as master or slave is a relatively simple task that takes only a couple of minutes.
Turn the CD drive so that you view the rear of the unit, then check the position of the jumper covers on the set of pins next to the power adapter plug. If the CD drive will be the only device on the IDE data ribbon cable, set the jumper cover on the two pins farthest away from the power connector. This position is the master drive setting, and, by default, most CD drives ship with this configuration. In most cases, if the CD drive is the only device connected to the cable, you do not need to change the jumper setting. Determine if you need to change the CD drive jumper setting if the device will share a connector cable with a hard drive or another optical drive. If the CD drive will be the primary (master) device on the cable, do not change the jumper setting. If the CD drive will be the secondary (slave) device on the cable, continue to the next step to change the setting. Use a pair of needle-nosed pliers or your fingers to remove the jumper cover from the CD drive if the unit will be the secondary device on the IDE ribbon cable. Set the cover over the pair of pins next the pair from which you removed it, then press it until it completely covers the pins. The jumper is now in the slave setting position.

Did you set the jumper on the drive to cable select? Check to what the jumpers on the back of the drive is set to. You should have 3 selections. primary,secondary and cable select.

Dell2 2400 BIOS F2 reads backwords.


It sounds like you may have the IDE cables hooked up backwards on your motherboard.. The IDE cable slot on the motherboard labled IDE1 should be where your Hard drives are if you want them to read as primary. The Optical drives are usually on IDE2, designating them as secondary.
Let me know if you need more help.

Cd/dvd rom


No, you cannot use that cable--it is solely for the harddrive, and should not be able to connect the cd/dvd rom. That is for another harddrive in case you decide to upgrade.

You will need to get another cable for the cd/dvd rom---if you do not know how to install and/or change the ribbon/cable, then go to an expert, such as GeekSquad to take care of it for you. You may even know a neighbor or friend who is a computer technician. Good luck!

I have bought two hitachi 160 GB hard drives and need jumper setting explained please


The usual jumper settings for a hard drive are:
  • Cable Select

  • Primary

  • Secondary
Cable select means that the mainboard will choose whether to make the drive primary or secondary. Most mainboards today support cable select. And, most drives will have their jumpers already set to cable select. You can just have all your drives set to cable select, and the mainboard will take care of the rest.

“Primary” means first and most important. Think of the primary as the one that usually takes control of the cable and gets its way. The secondary is like a little brother who must usually wait.

You usually want your main hard drive set as primary, or set it as cable select and have the mainboard set it as primary

Re: lg tower xp install


Hi,
the boot device setup in the bios, if you set atapi-cd rom as first boot device. then hdd second. and fdd last.
it appears that you have a faulty connection from the IDE ( 40-80 wire cable ) that runs from the motherboard Primary/secondary slot. check the cable goes from motherboard to hard-drive and is connected firmly, also check the jumper blocks ( small white plastic block ) is set to master or slave on both devices ( cd-hard-drive ) if both on same cable set hard-drive to slave and CD rom to master. if they are both set as master or slave, they will conflict with each other.
if you need further help, please mail back.

Dvd rom won't work


You forgot to check the jumper settings of the Hard Disk and the DVD Drive found at the back near the IDE and power cables. If you are using one IDE cable, then one jumper should be a Master, that's the Harddisk, and the DVD drive a Slave. If you are using two IDE cable then both must be Master.

You should check also the Harddisk jumper help settings printed on them, some harddisk needs the jumper settings for Slave presence on the same IDE cable.

If it doesn't work then It's either the cable or the DVD drive has a problem.
