Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

The start-up identifies IDE Channels, ie, Channel 0-WDC A313000 Hard Drive is the master, and identifies Channel 1-NEC CD-ROM 282 SM as the slave. When I look in the hardware profiles, Sony Proprietary is the CD-ROM. Then I get messages that the CD-ROM cannot be found, and it does not appear in My Computer on the Windows 98, version 4.01 Desktop. Why did the CD-ROM brand name change? How I do get the system to recognize the NEC CD-ROM 282 SM, which is plugged into the motherboard?

    The PCChips A15G Motherboard has one (1) 40-pin IDE Channel, and four (4) Serial ATA (SATA) Headers for the new technology SATA devices. I have been advised that I can connect two (2) IDE Devices into one (1) IDE. The manufacturers of the IDE Devices illustrate the jumper protocols for slave, and or master designation by illustrating the placement of the jumper in the jumper block on each IDE Device. Tiger Direct will also, tell about the jumper placement in the jumper block in the rear of the device. It is usually located near the power connector (4-pin). The number of pins in the jumper blocks vary from 6-pins (NEC CD-ROM) to 10 pins (Western Digital Caviar (WDC) Hard Drive). The BIOS recognizes the WDC as master, and recognizes the NEC CD-ROM as slave. The hardware profile identifies the CD-ROM as Sony Proprietary.

Sounds like you may have been digging in there.
If you have a 2nd IDE cable, try putting the CD-ROM on that...in the 1st connector slot.

    You should be able to see primary IDE and secondary IDE on the mother board. CD-ROM should go to the seconday IDE slot in the mother board. Try it and see if the BIOS recognizes it as a CD-ROM and not a slave.

    Also...did you mess with the jumpers on the CD-ROM? If you put the jumper in the wrong spot, the BIOS will not recognize the CD-ROM?

    Yea...the more I think about it, the more it seems like a jumper issue. Windows 98...ah yes...the good ole days...

    Any luck? Did you check the jumpers? Have you been inside the computer? hmm

    My bad...I thought you were using an old 98 machine and dealing with old IDE cables...not SATA sorry.

  • M Nelson
    M Nelson Apr 14, 2009

    btw you can connect 2 IDE devices with 1 IDE cable. You can not have more than 5 IDE devices on one old mother board.



    A common config is: Master and Slave on Channel 0, CD-ROM and DVD on channel 2, and floppy by itself. Just some fyi

wait until you get the new drive before before connecting your hard drives to master/slave
depending on the amount of drives your computer has you might have to change letters on all drives
naming of the hard drive you might be able to change the name opening windows explorer navigate to the drive then right click on the drive then select rename

Gigabyte-GA-8S648FX I updated my BIOS and my pc wont start, please hel'p bobonickelson@yahoo.co.uk


Ok, you have 2 x UDMA ATA 133/100/66 Bus Master IDE ports on that motherboard, so you can support 4 ide devices. It is important that you split your devices between the 2 available ide channels (each channel has a seperate ribbon cable). For example if you have 1 hard drive and 1 cd drive you'd want to place each on a seperate channel. If you have 2 hard drives and 1 cd drive it's best to place each hard drive on a seperate channel and the cd drive on the same channel as one of the hard drives. You have to make sure the jumper settings on the drives are correct (1 master and 1 slave) when placing 2 drives on the same channel for example. Most likely your jumper settings are not correct and are causing this problem. The jumpers are located on the rear of the drive near where the power cable is plugged into the drive. Most hard drives have the jumper setting printed on the hard drive. Once the jumpers are correct you should be ok.

Reinstalling the original cd rom that came in the computer. do i need to change the jumper settings. it is a samsung sc-148


That depends upon the IDE cable you are attaching the CD ROM to.
There are two IDE cables attached to the motherboard, on IDE 1 connector/cable will be your boot hard drive (C drive) and this will be jumpered to Master and you can attach the CD ROM drive to this cable and set the jumper on the CD drive as Slave.
On IDE 2 connector/cable if there are no drives attached to this cable then the CD ROM drive can be jumpered as Master or Slave..
If there is another drive on the same IDE 2 cable then look at the jumper on that drive, if it is jumpered to Master then the CD drive needs to be jumpered to Slave. If the existing drive is jumpered as Slave then the CD drive needs to be jumpered as Master.
Both drives on the same IDE cable cannot be jumpered with the same setting.

My PC refuses to boot up


If you have IDE rather than SATA drives -

You should have your hard drive as master and 1 CD drive as slave on one IDE channel, with the other 2 CD drives on the other IDE channel, one set to master and one set to slave.

So, pull the CD drives out and check the master/slave jumpers on the back of them.

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.

My computer will not read any of my disk or install


when you say disk did you mean hard disk? if you do... did you recenlty install a new hard disks?... if you did... did you check the jumper-master-slave configuration when installing the new hard disk?
only one hard disk can be configured as master in each ide channel. set up to master (not single) the one on the end of the ide cable and set up to slave the one attached to the midlle of the ide cable.
check that both hard drives are properly attached to the cable and that the power cable is properly seated.

when you say disk did you mean cd rom disks or dvd disks?
does it work in other computers? if it doesnt.. you cd/dvd disks may be the problem
are you trying to read a dvd disk on a cd rom only drive... you can't read a dvd in a cd rom drive.
if you cd/dvd rom drive should read the disk you're putting in, check in device manager if your system detects the cd/dvd rom drive. if it doesn't: check the physical connections (reseat ide cable, check jumper configuration for slave and master on your cd/dvd rom drive and check that the power cable is properly seated), check also in device manager the properties of the cd/dvd rom drive and check if it says on device status if the device is working correctly. if it doesn't post the error code that it may give you or google a solution with error code.

suggestion.. be more specific when posting your questions.. that way it will be easier for a solution to be provided as your issue could be interpreted in different ways

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!
