Hi there,

I think that the problem here may be that the Jumper on the CD-ROM needs adjusting. The Jumper is a tiny piece of plastic at the rear of the hardware in question.

There will be a diagram on the top, or rear of the CD-ROM, with a choice of 3 settings. If it is a solitary Optical drive then place the Jumper in the 'C' position.

If it is a Slave, or secondary drive, then place the Jumper in the 'S' position & if it is a Primary or Master drive the it is to be placed in the 'M' position, respectively.

I hope that this sees an end to your dillema & lots of luck.

Kindest regards,

Ste

How do I slave a cd-rom drive in a dimension 1100


Most CD or DVD drives installed in modern computers have a group of short jumper pins on the rear of the drive that determine the master or slave setting for the device. The master or slave setting helps to identify the drive when it shares a connector cable inside the computer with another device, such as a hard drive or even another optical drive. Without the master or slave jumper setting, the computer would not be able to tell one device from another or from which drive to retrieve or write data. Configuring a CD drive as master or slave is a relatively simple task that takes only a couple of minutes.
Turn the CD drive so that you view the rear of the unit, then check the position of the jumper covers on the set of pins next to the power adapter plug. If the CD drive will be the only device on the IDE data ribbon cable, set the jumper cover on the two pins farthest away from the power connector. This position is the master drive setting, and, by default, most CD drives ship with this configuration. In most cases, if the CD drive is the only device connected to the cable, you do not need to change the jumper setting. Determine if you need to change the CD drive jumper setting if the device will share a connector cable with a hard drive or another optical drive. If the CD drive will be the primary (master) device on the cable, do not change the jumper setting. If the CD drive will be the secondary (slave) device on the cable, continue to the next step to change the setting. Use a pair of needle-nosed pliers or your fingers to remove the jumper cover from the CD drive if the unit will be the secondary device on the IDE ribbon cable. Set the cover over the pair of pins next the pair from which you removed it, then press it until it completely covers the pins. The jumper is now in the slave setting position.

My samsung cd-rom sc-148c drive is not working. It is not listed in "My Computer". I have uninstalled and reinstalled it but that does not work.


Is the CD-ROM drive on a separate cable on the second IDE controller on the desktop motherboard? Then the jumper setting can be set to Master or Slave if no other drive is connector to this cable.
If the CD-ROM is also on the first IDE controller and IDE cable as the hard drive then the jumper setting on the CD-ROM must be set to SLAVE because the hard drive would be jumpered as MASTER.
Check the BIOS setting to see if the CD-ROM drive is detected.
If the CD-ROM still does not work after you checked and configured the CD-ROM drive, then is is faulty and needs to be replaced.

Reinstalling the original cd rom that came in the computer. do i need to change the jumper settings. it is a samsung sc-148


That depends upon the IDE cable you are attaching the CD ROM to.
There are two IDE cables attached to the motherboard, on IDE 1 connector/cable will be your boot hard drive (C drive) and this will be jumpered to Master and you can attach the CD ROM drive to this cable and set the jumper on the CD drive as Slave.
On IDE 2 connector/cable if there are no drives attached to this cable then the CD ROM drive can be jumpered as Master or Slave..
If there is another drive on the same IDE 2 cable then look at the jumper on that drive, if it is jumpered to Master then the CD drive needs to be jumpered to Slave. If the existing drive is jumpered as Slave then the CD drive needs to be jumpered as Master.
Both drives on the same IDE cable cannot be jumpered with the same setting.

I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO INSTALL A CD-ROM DRIVE INTO MY E-MACHINE..


Step1 Turn off your computer and unplug. Remove the left and right side panels.

Step2 Remove the covering of the drive bay that you plan to use for your new CD/DVD Drive.

Step3 Set the jumper. This is the most difficult part involved with the installation process. If you only have one drive for your system set your jumper on the back the drive to Master. If you have two or more set it to slave. Consult your drives manual to see a picture of what a master/slave jumper configuration looks like. It is best to have the fastest drive set as the master.

Step4 After you have set the jumpers insert the drive into the empty drive bay you selected.

Step5 Secure your CD/DVD drive to your computers chassis with screws and a screwdriver. Mounting screws are typically included with your drive.

Step6 Locate and connect the required power and IDE cables to the back of the drive. These cables are keyed, meaning they are shaped specifically for that drive. It's impossible to install the wrong cables.

Step7 Put the side panels back on and plug your computer back in. Turn it on and your computer should recognize the new drives. If they are not recognized you may need to install the drivers, which are usually included on a CD that's included with your new drive.

I hope that helps. If you have any more questions, let me know.

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

Sony CRX300E CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo - DVD doesn't read


Hi,
do you have software/program that supports DVD.
Try a different DVD/Movie/Disk or alternative.
Also install a program, such as Nero which will give you physical characteristics of the drive.
Finally go to device manager, and remove or uninstall the device, reboot the computer and setup again. This can sometimes remedy the problem.
ensure that the drive is set as Master/Slave. if on the same Bus/IDE channel as a hard-drive. set as master/slave opposite to what the hard-drive is setup as.
Hope this helps.
Mike @ Compurepair.

KHCRW 52 24 52 CD-ReWriter not recognized


Hi,
Change the Jumper To Master Or Slave.
CS Is cable Select, your computer may not support this Option.
If installing on a cable with a drive, already connected. i.e hard-disk. if the hard-disk is slave set the cd rom to master.
Enabling both channels, is the 2 individual slots on your motherboard. Primary And Secondary. Or IDE 1 And IDE 2.
This will solve your Problem.
