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

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.

How to install


When you install a DVD RW; a few things to consider. Locate a IDE connection to your motherboard. (do you need to share with the cdrom already in the pc or not?) You need to ensure the jumpers are set right. there are 3 spots on the back labled "CS/MA/SL" (on the lg, these are typically stamped into the top) The "first" drive on the wire is "ma" the second is 'sl" or ensure both are set to "cs" (which is cable select) this will ensure they can be detected. Hook up a power connection to the drive (use anyone that is free) OF COURSE, ensure your computer is OFF before you do this.

Hi my dvd burner doesn't recognize my virgin disks


Sound like your cable that connects your burner to the motherboard. Try another cable, if you want to try another trouble shoot item, try connecting it behind the hard drive. Before you do set the jumper setting to slave on the burner and hook it up. That will help you to elimate a channel.

I want to install a 2nd dvd burner. But I don't know how to hook it up. My new pc does not have the ribbons like my old one does.


If your 2nd DVD burner is on IDE interface, you may need to get an IDE to SATA cable. Please refer to the picture below as to how it looks like:

I have the RCA RT2500 model and I am looking for directions to connect tv, DVD, gaming, Cable Box, etc are there anywhere on line I can find it? thank you


the back should have a squared in box around the inputs like dvd vcr sat tv cd, dvd and sat have svideo and component a/v plugs, the vcr just has component rca a/v ports, tv and cd are just for audio, then you also have the option to hook up optical for dvd and sat. just plug your vcr into the vcr box and hook up svideo or the yellow monitor out plug to your tv, hook in the speakers and turn that baby up.

There could be at least two ways to hook in your VCR. The common way is to hook your VCR inline (between) the sat box output (RF or antenna) and the TV RF/antenna input. This will allow you to play the VCR/DVD & record whatever channel the sat box is set to. I'm not real familiar with the newer sat boxes, but I assume they output one channel at a time, thus, you can only record that channel. On the older cable or outdoor antenna systems, you could record one channel while watching another. Perhaps some sat boxes have this capability. You might do a Google search with the box Model number to see if an online manual can be found. The other hookup possibility is if your TV set has audio/video inputs & outputs. Hook these to the matching input/output of the VCR/DVD.
