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.

I removed my battery from my Dell Dimension desk top, waited and then put battery back in and started my computer.


When you removed the battery your computer lost all of it's configuration settings. You have to go into the set-up menu and and select the devices that are installed on your computer. Such as floppy drive, CD drive, DVD drive. Also have to set date and time.

After installing cd-rom i turned computer on and it says i need to change the stand alone slave drive master


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

Hi,
usually when you update or re-flash the dvd rom.
it will state :- ensure that the drive to be flashed should be jumper set as master. if there were other drives connected to the same ide channel. this could have caused damage to the other drives connected. Or the IDE Channels themselves.
The only suggestion I have for you. is to remove all the drives. disconnect the power from the computer. and remove the cmos battery, for 10-15 seconds. resetting the computers bios back to defaults. then re-settup the drives ensuring that the jumpers are correct for each drive. i.e 1 slave and 1 master on each ide cable.

How set the hard drive and dvd-rom


first idea is to set the Hard drives on the primary controller on the same cable, having your hard drive with windows as the master and the other as slave ( do this with the jumpers).

Next put your cd\dvd drive on the other cable on the secondary ide (the name is usually IDE2).

turn on your PC and pres delete to go to the bios settings,

once there go to the basic cmos settings page, and make sure you see the settings there as you wanted,
Primary master first hard drive
Primary Slave second hard drive

Secondary Master your cd\dvd drive

How to detect the hardrive?


Hi,

setup the first drive as slave ( sometimes No Jumper ) then the furthest away drive as Master.
If this fails, and you have 2 IDE Slots on the motherboard. ( Primary/Secondary ) Put 1 drive on primary as Slave. And DVD Rom As Master ( same Cable ) Then put second drive On Secondary IDE Slot. ( Set As Master Or Slave )
If none of these solutions Work For you, check to see if Both Channels are activated in the Bios.

Thankyou For Using Fixya.

Cd/dvd rom


No, you cannot use that cable--it is solely for the harddrive, and should not be able to connect the cd/dvd rom. That is for another harddrive in case you decide to upgrade.

You will need to get another cable for the cd/dvd rom---if you do not know how to install and/or change the ribbon/cable, then go to an expert, such as GeekSquad to take care of it for you. You may even know a neighbor or friend who is a computer technician. Good luck!

Setting up a Computer to install Windows XP Professional.


Pedro -

I'll assume each of these is an IDE device, meaning each has a wide connector versus a narrow SATA connector commonly found on newer hard drives.

Your motherboard should have two IDE channels, labeled IDE 1 and IDE 2, Primary IDE and Secondary IDE, or something similar. Each IDE channel can support two devices.

For best performance between the drives, you will want to have the Hard Drive connected as Master(Drive 0) on the Primary IDE channel; The CDROM should be connected as Slave(Drive 1) on the Primary IDE channel. Connect the DVDROM as Master(Drive 0) on the Secondary IDE channel, and the ZIP Drive as Slave on the Secondary IDE channel.

When connecting the drives, make sure you set the jumpers correctly; Both the Hard Drive and the DVDROM should have their jumpers set to Master, the CDROM and Zip drives should have their jumpers set to Slave. An alternative is to set the jumpers for every drive to Cable Select(CS), allowing the physical connection of each drive to determine whether its a Master or Slave device.

*Note*
If your Hard Drive is a SATA device, connect it to the '0' or '1' SATA connector on the motherboard. Have the DVDROM set up by itsself as Master on the primary IDE channel, the CDROM as Master on the Secondary IDE channel, and the ZIP as Slave on the Secondary IDE channel.

Hope this helps!

CD ROM DETECTION PROBLEM


LEAVE YOU hard drive on primary master port on your main board set as master or single drive ( IF YOU HAVE A STATA HARD DRIVE THEN DONT WORRY ABOUT THAT PART)

SET YOUR FIRST DRIVE AS MASTER
SET THE SECOND AS SECONDARY
use the jumber in the back of the drive to set them the propper setting is labeled on the drive it self

Connect them to the secondary port on your motherboard
so you should have

HARD DRIVE - MASTER OR SINGLE *jumper settiing* connected to the primary port on your main board

DRIVE 1 = MASTER *jumper settiing*
DRIVE 2 = SLAVE *jumpersetting*
connected to the secondary port on your mother board

IF YOU HAVE A SATA HARD DRIVE FORGET THE PARTS ABOUT HARD DRIVES ABOVE
i assumed you had a IDE hard drive

JUST USE THE SETTINGS FOR THE DRIVES and it should work :)
