If neither ROMS are being displayed and you have one set as master and other slave then the problem can be easily solved by changing the settings to cable select that way its easier for windows to identify the drives.

Hi purushoth,

So neither of the ROM drives are available, or just the one? Your jumper settings may or may not be correct; in some systems, even having the IDE cable placement and jumper settings correct may still leave errors such as this.

Basically if you dink around with the settings (for example just try changing the Slave and Master) it will work (provided there's nothing wrong with the drives or IDE cable). I'd also suggest setting both to Cable Select as some systems (such as Sony VAIOs) oftentimes will only allow optical drives to function with that setting.

CD not read


Does the CD have any large or visible scratches on it? If so, you might be able to use toothpaste to fix it. Apply toothpaste onto the CD, rub it in, wash and dry it, and try to use it again

Check the jumper settings in the back of the drive, by the power cable. Make sure your cd/dvd drive is set to SLAVE, with your primary harddrive as MASTER. Check BIOS settings, specifically your boot order, choose which drive you want to load first (usually HD 0), save and exit.
That's just the basics, though.
Another possibility is that you might just have a paperweight ;)
If so, try another drive.
Hope that helps

I'm not sure what program you are talking about, but if you have just installed the DVD, make sure that the pins on the back of the drive are set to master if this is the only DVD/CD/ROM drive you are using. If you have another DVD/ROM device running from the motherboard and connected to the DVD from the same ribbon, you will need to make this a slave via the pins on the back of the DVD/ROM.

Dvd/cd internal drive cable(s) connection


Hi,
this isn,t a big task.
1:- cable 40 strand IDE Ribbon Cable to DVD Rom. If there is a secondary device such as hard-drive. view it,s jumper ( plastic Block) setting will be Master Or Slave. Setup your DVD To Opposite of Hard-Drive ( If applicable )
2:- 4 pin Molex plug power cable, Red-Blk-Blk-Yellow. Only goes in 1 way, usually yellow facing outside edge of case.
3:- turn on computer, drive should be detected, install device drivers via CD if requested by the system.

DVD writer, master drive


If you have both the DVD and CD drives connected to the same ribbon cable you want one set to Master and the other to Slave, or both set to CS (cable select). Good luck.

I think your drive is old and full of dust inside or it may be nearing its end. Get some servicing.
