have you tried flashing the BIOS version? I don't know if this is just a problem out of the blue, or you just got the motherboard and it's always been like this. I know usually the manufacturer releases new version for the BIOS and you can use a flash utility to upgrade it and it could fix the problem. Have you tried using another operating system to see if it works in Linux (Ubuntu)? If it works in Linux, then you know it's a windows related problem. If it doesn't work there, then it's probably the BIOS version is outdated.
Shut down the computer.Disconnect the ide cable from hdd .Just connect using primary hdd and boot the computer. Shut down the computer. Connect the secondary hdd both IDE and power cable. Restart the system and go to bios . Check if the both hdd are detected in bios. If detected boot to desktop. If not detected reset bios settings to default.Restart computer and check. IF still not detected shutdown computer.Disconnected secondary hdd and primary hdd,connected secondary hdd to primary ide connecter and check in bios. If still not detected try connecting secondard hdd on different computer and check.
Buy another IDE cable(if you didnt get one with the drive) and keeping the rewriter on master plug it in the secondary IDE channel on the motherboard.
So the config should be like this: Primary IDE connector on the mobo (useually blue/black) connected to hdd set to master at the cable end Secondary IDE connector on the mobo connected with a seperate cable (80 pin cable for high speed preferrably) to the rewritable set to master at cable end
there may be some problem in the ide cable just change the ide cable and try once .. you can check it by going to BIOS whether after replacing the ide cable the device detects or not ..
if you persist same problem then there may be some problem in the secondary IDE port(may be some pin might have broken or some short circuit might have occured have a check) just take your motherboard to the motherboard technician if so ...
Right click on My Computer, choose Properties, Hardware Tab, Device Manager. Expand the IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, choose Secondary IDE Channel (Double Click) Advanced Settings. Current transfer mode should be highest level of DMA (if it is PIO mode that is likely your problem). If it is PIO mode, click the driver tab and make sure the driver provider is Microsoft. If not, make sure you have the driver available. If the provider is Microsoft close out of the Secondary IDE Channel Properties window, right click on the Secondary IDE Channel in Device Manager, and choose uninstall. Reboot the computer, then open device manager again, highlight IDE ATA/ATAPI controllers, right click and choose Scan for Hardware Changes. It will find the Secondary IDE Channel and reinstall it. The transfer mode should be DMA. Your CD/DVD will play like normal.
