In the past it was recommend that the burner be the secondary master. Do to problems like you mentioned. Try making the DVD the slave and the burner the master. Be sure that when you boot up that in the posting that it see the drives right. If the CMOS/ BIOS is set for fast boot you can press the ese or tab to see the post without changing the CMOS/BIOS on most models.

How do i instal as a second player on an intel board


you remove the first dvd or cd rom. in the back where you plug in the cables, search for a diagram of master, slave and cable select pin sets. on both of these roms, there will be one. set one to master and the other to slave. make sure the master is connected to the ide cable plug closest to the motherboard. the slave will be the last one on the IDE cable.

I can't fing my 2nd cd rom in my pc anywhere.


The good thing is that you have power to the drive. Is it a SATA or IDE drive? Have you checked that the cables are fully seated on both the drive and the motherboard?

If it is an IDE drive, is it on the same cable as another drive? Did you set the jumper to match the master/slave connection of the cable? Consult your manual if needed. Most of my IDE drives actually have the jumper labels on the back of the drive (next where the IDE cable plugs in). There are 3 options - cable select, slave and master. I've never had much luck with the cable select jumper option.

If it is a SATA drive, you might have a bad cable.

Nero cr-rw burner install


is your hard drive the master on the primary cable? You shouldn't need a digital audio cable unless you want digital audio. Are you using Nero software witht he drive? may have to re-install the software, or better, uninstall it, clear the registry with CCleaner (free download on the web) and then try a fresh install.

Help switching Samsung sn-m242 cd burner from master to slave


If you are to be using two DVD drives and want one as a slave, hook up both together as you would a hard drive with the ribbon cable. Restart the computer in CMOS by hitting F4 (may be different on your system) If you navigate a little with the arrow keys and the enter button, you will see boot options. Often the DVD player is first or second after Floppy and the hard drive last. Now you should see two DVD drives (if thats what you have), just select it to be a slave. This also works if you have only one DVD drive and want it to be a slave. Just select your DVD device to be the second boot option. Windows XP detects hard ware on its own and should not need any firmware unless the burner is made for Windows 95. If this does not answer your question, let me know.

the scsi and raid refers to sata hard drives or ide in a raid configuration. the dvd drive if on a cable on its own should be set at master, if on a cable with another drive then set it at slave, cable select doesnt always work as the motherboard cannot identify the ide source. Youe DVD drive will be listed in device manager under cd/dvd drives, click the + sign and if it's listed there, right click it and select uninstall. Restart the pc and see if it's reinstalled automatically, it should do, then be ready for use, if you still cannot see it in my computer check the drives ide cable and swap the drives over if necassary, if still not showing the drive needs to be replaced.

How to install an apoen 5224 crw


If you have only a hard drive apart from this CDRW look at the connection to the hard drive and follow to the IDE0 connecter on the mobo.(do not connect CDRW to this as it will slow up the harddrive). Next to this will be another connector IDE1, if you already have a device connected to this there will be an IDE cable already there. On the IDE cable half way up will be another connector, connect this to your CDRW and set the plastic cap jumper to the SLAVE position. If no device connected you need an ide cable from the connector on the motherboard to the CDRW and set the jumper at the back at slave. Just remember if you have two peices of hardware on one cable one is set at 'MASTER' and one is set at 'SLAVE'. Don't forget to connect the power lead from the power supply unit to CDRW. Restart pc and it will be auto detected.
