This particular motherboard does not provide IDE connections for external devices. The safest option would be to use an IDE expansion card that will plug into the PCI bus and provide normal IDE connections for your devices.
A quick search to google for "ide expansion card" will provide many good results.

SOURCE: Secondary IDE channel not working...

have you tried flashing the BIOS version? I don't know if this is just a problem out of the blue, or you just got the motherboard and it's always been like this. I know usually the manufacturer releases new version for the BIOS and you can use a flash utility to upgrade it and it could fix the problem. Have you tried using another operating system to see if it works in Linux (Ubuntu)? If it works in Linux, then you know it's a windows related problem. If it doesn't work there, then it's probably the BIOS version is outdated.

Make sure the data cable is fully connected to the motherboard and the CD-Rom drive. If this is an IDE drive, make sure the jumper choice matches the position on the cable (the 40 pin wide ribbon cable that supports two drives). It also needs to be correctly oriented in the unit - the red stripe on the edge marks the side that goes to pin 1. Only use slave if there are two drives connected to the cable and the CD-rom is on the slave connection. (Note the connectors are black (motherboard), blue (master) and grey (slave) on a standard IDE ribbon. Newer IDE drives have a Cable Select option that you can leave the jumper set to and avoid issues of getting the connections wrong.) If it uses a SATA cable, the jumper should stay as Master (IIRC). If available, try a different connection on the motherboard for the data cable. (Some modern motherboards only have one IDE connector.) If you have any sort of IDE to SATA converter in use, try a direct connection in case the converter is damaged. SATA cables sometimes are designed to latch into connector on the drive so make sure it is fully seated.

Replace the cable if it still isn't connecting. Then check the status of the drivers. In Windows, use the Control Panel and go to the Device Manager. Look to see if the unit is listed with a red X or yellow exclamation point in a triangle. Try to update the driver.

If the above suggestions do not help, you should consider a new optical drive.

I hope this helps.

I need to know what order to put the wires from the mother Bord to the floppy drive to the cd Rom\burner to the hard drives


The floppy drive has it own data cable and does not connect to the same cable as the hard drive and CD ROM/R-W drive.
If the hard drive and CD drive are IDE devices, then the hard drive should be the connected to the connector at the end of the IDE cable and the jumper on the hard drive set to Master. The CD drive should be connected to the middle connector and its jumper set to Slave. The other end connector should be connected to the Primary IDE connector on the motherboard.

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.

Not deteck hdd & cdrom


Power down you're system and remove the power cable from the PS.
Open you're case. First clear the cmos jumper. See bottom of page 14 in manual. The GA-8VM533M-RZ motherboard was made Jan-1-2004. It is very likely that the cmos battery needs to be replaced. Average life span is 5 years or less. Pull the cmos battery and check its voltage with a voltmeter, it should read no less than 2.7volts DC.
I'm guessing it’s the bios that’s not seeing the CD-ROM drive and the hdd? Suggest you check both the data cables and their power cables.
Since the GA-8VM533M-RZ motherboard only supports ATA IDE hdd's, check the drives jumper. (It should be jumpered as a Master) and so should the jumper on the back of the cd-rom drive. See the link provided; http://www.easeus.com/resource/install-ide-hard-drive.htm
The link above helps but you're hdd may be different. See the sticker on
you're hdd for the correct jumper setting.
If you are using a single data cable to connect both cd-rom and hdd to the motherboard don't. Use an 80-pin data cable for the hard disk drive. You can use a 40-pin data cable for the cd-rom but if you have a spare
80-pin data cable connect the cd-rom drive to it.
Connect the hdd to IDE1 and connect the cd-rom to IDE2. See motherboard layout in the manual page 5. Need the manual? Download it from Gigabyte; http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ProductID=1766
To view the manual you will need to download and install Adobe reader;
http://www.adobe.com/products/reader/
Re-connect the power cable to the PS. You can leave the case opened for now. Power on the system and press the Delete key every 2 seconds until the bios menu opens. (Make sure the time and date are set current). See page 19. Than turn to page 23. Make the settings as follows;
First Boot Device [Floppy] - (if one is connected)
Second Boot Device [CD-ROM
Third Boot device [HHD-0]
Password Check [Not needed]

CPU Hyper-Threading [Enabled]
Check all settings while in the bios, save and exit. The system will auto re-boot. If after replacing the bios battery (If needed), and the bios still
does not see either drive than the problem is either the bios or the motherboard's controller. The bios can be flashed but the MB controller can not be repaired.

Cheers'

ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard configuration


Serial ATA drives are pretty much plug and play. You just need to install them and set them up as a primary drive in your bios settings. The IDE devices can be connected on the same ribbon cable but need to have jumpers set on the back to determine which device is primary or slave. If the IDE devices are on different ribbon cables then most likely the hard drive jumper setting should be set to master or master (single drive). The CD-ROM drive jumper on master. BIOS should detect all drives You also need to assign the boot order in BIOS. CD-ROM should be the first boot device to load and install the new OS onto the primary hard drive.

If the dianostic lights A & D are yellow an IDE bus failure has occurred. Reseat the IDE cables at the motherboard and drive(s). If this does not resolve the issue you may need to contact Dell for a motherboard repair or replacement.

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

Ribbon hook-up


You should be using two, two connector IDE ribbon cables if I understand your questions correctly.

On IDE 0 you connect the hard drive and one cd drive.
On IDE 1 you connect the second cd drive.

You will need to make sure the jumper settings on the drives are correctly set.
