It should be labeled as PRI and SEC for Primary and Secondary. Both slots will be the same size.

What type interface does my sony PCV RS520use for my DVD Burner ?


Since your hard drive uses IDE, so will your CDROM.

There are normally two IDE interfaces, with each interface having a primary and secondary connection (total of four connections, 2 on each).

You hard drive would be connected to the primary connection of the IDE interface 0, and the CD/DVD Rom would be connected to the secondary connection of the IDE interface 1.

Here is a link to some manuals you can look at in PDF format.

Primary IDE port does not work. My main hard disk drive and DVD writer drive are connected to the Secondary IDE port. If I move them to the the Primary IDE port, both the drives do not get detected at all....


Good day sir, there are several way to connect an extra IDE if the motherboard is full:
  1. Buy a PCI to IDE/SATA card. Check your local computer dealer if there is available.
  2. Buy an external USB to IDE Hard disk enclosure.
Of course, these are things to buy, but check first the CMOS setup if the Primary IDE is enabled on your PC.

Ide channels not working right after updating dvdrw firmware Set on ide channels should be Primary ide Hard drive primary master. Primary secondary hard drive. Secondary master dvd (read only) Secondary...


Hi,
usually when you update or re-flash the dvd rom.
it will state :- ensure that the drive to be flashed should be jumper set as master. if there were other drives connected to the same ide channel. this could have caused damage to the other drives connected. Or the IDE Channels themselves.
The only suggestion I have for you. is to remove all the drives. disconnect the power from the computer. and remove the cmos battery, for 10-15 seconds. resetting the computers bios back to defaults. then re-settup the drives ensuring that the jumpers are correct for each drive. i.e 1 slave and 1 master on each ide cable.

How set the hard drive and dvd-rom


first idea is to set the Hard drives on the primary controller on the same cable, having your hard drive with windows as the master and the other as slave ( do this with the jumpers).

Next put your cd\dvd drive on the other cable on the secondary ide (the name is usually IDE2).

turn on your PC and pres delete to go to the bios settings,

once there go to the basic cmos settings page, and make sure you see the settings there as you wanted,
Primary master first hard drive
Primary Slave second hard drive

Secondary Master your cd\dvd drive

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.

Setting up a Computer to install Windows XP Professional.


Pedro -

I'll assume each of these is an IDE device, meaning each has a wide connector versus a narrow SATA connector commonly found on newer hard drives.

Your motherboard should have two IDE channels, labeled IDE 1 and IDE 2, Primary IDE and Secondary IDE, or something similar. Each IDE channel can support two devices.

For best performance between the drives, you will want to have the Hard Drive connected as Master(Drive 0) on the Primary IDE channel; The CDROM should be connected as Slave(Drive 1) on the Primary IDE channel. Connect the DVDROM as Master(Drive 0) on the Secondary IDE channel, and the ZIP Drive as Slave on the Secondary IDE channel.

When connecting the drives, make sure you set the jumpers correctly; Both the Hard Drive and the DVDROM should have their jumpers set to Master, the CDROM and Zip drives should have their jumpers set to Slave. An alternative is to set the jumpers for every drive to Cable Select(CS), allowing the physical connection of each drive to determine whether its a Master or Slave device.

*Note*
If your Hard Drive is a SATA device, connect it to the '0' or '1' SATA connector on the motherboard. Have the DVDROM set up by itsself as Master on the primary IDE channel, the CDROM as Master on the Secondary IDE channel, and the ZIP as Slave on the Secondary IDE channel.

Hope this helps!

Installing hard drive on this model


Hi,
Sure why not.
You,ll need a ribbon cable also 40 or 80 strand IDE Cable. to connect from hard-drive to Motherboard. If you have an existing connector already in. this should be In IDE 1 Or Primary slot ( on motherboard ) there should also be a secondary IDE Slot.
connect ribbon to IDE 2 Or secondary slot, and to hard-drive.
ensure the jumper on the hard-drive is set to Slave Or Master, if your running another device from that same cable, set to Master/Slave alternate to hard Drive.
Good luck and go for It.
Power Off first.
Motherboards are,nt too happy about Static.

CD ROM DETECTION PROBLEM


LEAVE YOU hard drive on primary master port on your main board set as master or single drive ( IF YOU HAVE A STATA HARD DRIVE THEN DONT WORRY ABOUT THAT PART)

SET YOUR FIRST DRIVE AS MASTER
SET THE SECOND AS SECONDARY
use the jumber in the back of the drive to set them the propper setting is labeled on the drive it self

Connect them to the secondary port on your motherboard
so you should have

HARD DRIVE - MASTER OR SINGLE *jumper settiing* connected to the primary port on your main board

DRIVE 1 = MASTER *jumper settiing*
DRIVE 2 = SLAVE *jumpersetting*
connected to the secondary port on your mother board

IF YOU HAVE A SATA HARD DRIVE FORGET THE PARTS ABOUT HARD DRIVES ABOVE
i assumed you had a IDE hard drive

JUST USE THE SETTINGS FOR THE DRIVES and it should work :)
