Question about Pioneer (dvr-a06u) DVD±RW Burner

1 Answer

Jumper I'm not sure what a jumper is, or how it looks like, or how it's supposed to be connected. "My system currently has a hard drive and cd-rw connected to the single IDE connector on my motherboard.How do I connect a DVD writer as well when I only have the one IDE connector????" Solution #2 by Putty: "With only one ide connector you can only have 2 devices a master and slave, you cannot put a HD on a floppy connector...its only for floppy drives. I suggest you remove the cdrw and replace it with the dvdrw as it should be able to burn cd's as well....make sure the jumper on the dvd is set for what ever position you put it on....sugggestion is DVD master HD slave"

I replaced the dvd drive with a gdr8162b and added a sony cd/rw Crx217e-ds this computer is a dell 4600 cant get neither of the drives to work

If these drives are IDE deives then check the jumper settings on these drives.
The jumper setting for master (MA) and Slave (SL)
If one of these drives is on the same data cable as the hard drive the the jumper setting for this drive MUST be set to Slave (SL) because the hard drive will be jumpered as Master (MA).
If both of the drives are on the same data cable and the data cable is plugged into the second IDE controller then one of the drives MUST be jumpered as Master drive and the other as Slave drive.

Cant get burner to reconised on pc

Since this is an IDE drive, please check the Master/Slave/Cable Select jumpers, if you've connected the drive in the same cable of your hard drive, you should check its jumper settings, if hard drive is set as Master, the DVD writer it should be as Slave, if the hard disk jumper is set to Cable Select (CS), the DVD should be in the same way too. After this check if DVD drive is identified correctly in BIOS, it's a good idea to set drive detection as Auto, if this all is OK, check its driver in Windows, it must be appear as a DVD-RW drive.

I installed a LiteOn SOHR-5239v cd-rw drive. It doesn't show up on my computer and i looked on the website and couldn't find the driver.

Ok thats probably your problem. J
You will have to remove the DVD drive once it is removed look at the back it will look like this,
I have indicated where the jumpers are located. The jumpers tell the computer how to read the drive (every IDE drive hard drive, cd/dvd rom, floppy drive has them) the options are Master (meaning it is the main drive), Slave (secondary drive), and Cable Select (the cable decides how the drive will be read).
There are two ways to connect the drive to the motherboard one is to split the IDE Cable with the hard drive the other is the drive has its own IDE Cable and plugs in next to the hard drive.
If you are sharing the cable with the hard drive configure the jumper as Cable Select,
If your drive connects with its own cable select Master.
To do this pull out the jumper and insert it in the location you want.

I/O Magic drive is really Toshiba SH-S182 - I need jumper help

The jumper settings are located in the manual. You can download it here (it takes a few minutes to download). I have tested it and it does work and has the jumper settings for you.

I would be most grateful if you would rate my answer for me. Thank you.

My computer is not detecting my drive no installing options displayed.

Follow these simple steps..
>Check for the jumper on your Hard Disk. Jumper is nothing but a black colored small pin which is fixed on the rear side of your HDD.
Make sure it is at first slot.If not, change it.
>Now remove the jumper of your drive.(Drive doesnt need a jumper).Now your drive acts as slave and HDD as master.
>start your computer and check for the icon in MY COMPUTER.
This should solve your problem.

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.

CD-RW not working on same Ide cablew as HD

Hi, please check the power connector to the drive. if it is ok, restart the pc, enter BIOS setup, check whether the drive is detected or not in the drive configuration. if not there, check the jumper settings once again. for the new motherboards with one IDE and SATA interfaces, jumper settings are important. once i had the same problem.
good luck

If the drive is "Master" (the first drive in cable line installed) then the jumper goes to "MA", if it is a "SLAVE" connected drive then the jumper goes to "SL".

I have a problem

Take the cover of your computer off again and check all the cables again. Check the cables going to the hard drive. Make sure there is no disk in the drive. If you have a floppy disk drive, make sure there is no disk in it. Make sure the jumper is set properly on the back of the cd-rom drive. The jumper should set to 'slave' or 'cd'. In some cases the jumper should be off. Let me know if this helps.
