Question about Computers & Internet

Sony Dual DVD +/- RW

I installed this unit in my Dell Optiplex 210L. I found that both the original cd and newly installed dvd did not work after thre installation. In the BIOS the Drives are as follow:
Drive 0= SATA 2, Controller= serial ATA, Port= SATA 0, Harddrive= 80GIG
Drive 1= SATA 2(off)
Drive 2= PATA 0, controller= Parallel ATA, Primary IDE Master (DVD)
Drive 3= PATA 1, controller= Parallel ATA, Primary IDE Slave (off)
The hard drive is set on "Cable Sellect".
The dvd drive is set on "Master"

What is the problem?

Anonymous,
Did you set the jumper on the drive to cable select? Check to what the jumpers on the back of the drive is set to. You should have 3 selections. primary,secondary and cable select.

Check the DVD Drive cable connections, make sure they are plugged-in properly. Check BIOS if DVD is detected; you may have to reset to default configuration. If it's detected in BIOS, press F12 while on the Dell screen to access advance boot menu & select CD/DVD drive option. Insert a bootable disc like windows installer & see if your drive will read it. For cabling setup refer to this link http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/op210l/en/ug/mtdrvs02.htm#wp1136008
