It depends on what make/model motherboard you have. it will look like a sideways L shaped (usually black) plug.

I was unable to connect LG DVD R/W to mercury KVM800M .Which one model of DVD R/W supported to it?


IDE (PATA) or SATA.

There are headers on the motherboard for each style.
Which Operating System are you using?

I see it is a DVD 'burner'. (DVD-R/W)
Do you have burner software?

D945gtp how to connect cd-rom hardware


1) IDE {PATA} DVD burner drive:

For an IDE { PATA } DVD burner, connect to the 40-pin IDE header on the motherboard. This is located to the right side of the Ram Memory slots.
It is the longer header that has 40 contact pins. {39 actually}

( The shorter connector on the motherboard is for a Floppy Drive.
{34 pins} It is above the IDE 40-pin connector )

NOTE*
The IDE connector on the motherboard should be keyed. Should have a cutout on one side. This is so the Number 1 pin in the flat IDE ribbon cable, will line up with Number 1 pin in the motherboard connector.

Some flat IDE ribbon cables, do not have a Locating Lug on the connector. (Small rectangular 'bump')

Number 1 pin on the IDE ribbon cable will be on the side that has a faint RED stripe on it.

Number 1 pin in the motherboard connector is at the Bottom, with the motherboard installed.

The side of the flat ribbon IDE cable that has the faint red stripe on it, goes DOWN, when installed in the motherboard connector.

If the DVD drive does not have a cutout for it's circuit board, the faint red stripe of the flat ribbon IDE cable, goes towards the power cable connection.

2) SATA DVD burner drive:
You have 4 Serial ATA headers (Connectors) on the motherboard.
Your SATA harddrive should be plugged into the SATA1 header.

You can choose any open available SATA header, to plug your SATA DVD burner drive into.
BIOS will see it once you turn the computer on.

3) If you somehow have been using an IDE {PATA} harddrive, and have it connected to your IDE connector on the motherboard, you SHOULD not use a DVD drive on that flat IDE ribbon cable, also.

BIOS has to find which device has the Operating System on it, (Windows), and then hand the computer over to the Operating System.

To state again, BIOS will look at both devices connected to that flat ribbon cable. The Harddrive, and the DVD drive.
It will then determine that the Harddrive, is the device that has Windows on it, not the DVD drive.

This slows the computer down, and could result in a blue screen.

If you have an IDE harddrive plugged into the motherboard, it would be best to use a SATA DVD drive.

I have a asus p4v8x-x motherboard which earlier had an IDE connected Dvd burner but now i want to install a SATA burner i have connected the drive on my SATA port but my computer does not show identify it


Hi, you can download a manual here:

http://support.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=P4V8X-X&p=1&s=15

Please select your operating system.
Select manual and click on global for download.
Unzip the file before you can read it.

Maybe its just a setting in the bios that does that.

I bought this motherboard: ASUS M2N68-AM SE2 Motherboard CPU Bundle - AMD Athlon X2 7550 2.50GHz OEM Processor, Geforce7025/nForce 630a, mATX Motherboard back on June 30, 2009 from www.tigerdirect.com....


I guess this is happening because of the CPU getting heated, Kindly check if the CPU heatsink and the fan is seated properly. Also check if there is any power issue, try to connect the system to another wall socket

IDE Primary Master/Slave NONE


Hook the two together on the one working IDE connector. Put your hard drive as the first device on the ribbon cable and make it the master using the jumper at the back. Hook the DVD to the second and set it's jumper to slave. Install your OS then try to figure what's up.
