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!

This folder is the DVD/CD-ROM Drive Class Description in the registry. Look for any of the following names in the right hand column.

Reboot your computer

Open My Computer and check to see if your CD or DVD drives have returned. You may also want to open Device Manager and verify that the yellow exclamation and error code on the CD or DVD drive is gone.

Want to connect a new samsung hard disk to computer

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.

Does not read dvd

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.

Hard drive compatibility

This motherboard is compatible with PATA/IDE Hd's running at 133/66/33Mbs. & ATA/SATA 1.5Mbs drives. The SATA's run faster. This board will not handle a SATA II's speed but it will still run on the P5P800-VM board. The links below show good buy's on both PATA/IDE & SATA I & II. Seagates for their 5yr. warranty.
Seagate ST3160215AS 160GB ATA/SATA
Seagate ST3160215A 160GB Ultra ATA/100
As far a size, that is up too you. Windows can handle 5 time these sizes.

Please don't forget to vote.....
