Question about CD & DVD Burners
Bougth this unit from a guy and never been used but books , cd /, etc.
are gone need help.
Look at the "back" of the device.
You'll see 40 pins (2 rows of 20 pins), 6 pins (2 rows of 3 pins), and 1 row of 4 pins.
The 40-pins is the "data" connection -- note that there is a "notch" centered in the plastic above the pins -- to ensure that the ribbon-cable can only be connected the _correct_ way.
The 4-pins is the "power" connection, note that 2 corners are beveled, again to ensure that the power-connector only fits in the _correct_ way.
The 6-pins are labelled: MA(ster) & SL(ave) & C(able)S(elect).
Move the small jumper to the 2 'CS' pins.
With the computer turned-off, connect the "data" and "power" cables.
Windows should "detect" this "new hardware", without needing a CD, and fully install the device.
