Re: DRW-1814BLT compatibility with IDE hard drive
Put hard drive as Master. dvd rw as slave! if DVD comes with sata then just put hard drive as master. configure it on the bios setting! if it still don't detect it try replacing IDE cable and sata cable!

There are two main types of interface for disk drives in personal computers. If you give us the model numbers from the drives we can tell you for sure.
The older style drives are called IDE. They normally have a flat ribbon cable with 40/80 wires. This is probably what the 40GB uses. If your 160GB drive uses a different interface it may be a SATA interface this uses a small plug with only 3 or 4 wires. These are used in modern desktops. You can't get an adapter to simply change from one to the other. But you may find that your CD/DVD Rom uses an IDE interface and you can share the cable with two devices (if so ask here for tips on sharing a cable). You may also find an unusd IDE port on your motherboard.
If there are no IDE (40pin) interfaces to be found you can get a add on interface card that will let you run ide devices. Common cards will go into a 32 bit PCI slot on your motherboard. You will need to make sure you have a spare slot of the right type before you buy an interface card. You can get these on ebay fairly cheaply.
I have made quite a few asumptions here. Post some more information about your motherboard and the the drives you have and we can confirm things for you.
According to Asus there are many burned dvd formats that are not supported or simply do not work in this drive. Asus stated that most dvd-r should work but not all, and that is the only burned dvd media that works. You may want to look into buying a different drive.
Hi there reinstall the driver is you have the disk if not download from drivers.com there will be a small charge for download if not go onto your PC manufactures website and see if you can download from there.
