Question about Dell Latitude CPX Notebook
I have a Dell CPx, and it has the cable that allows you to run both a floppy disk drive, and the CD at the same time. Does anyone know how, if it is even possible, to run an additional CD drive, with a CD drive inserted into the computer? I have hooked it up, but it still shows that the additional drive that I have added with the cable, is a floppy, when it is actually a CD/RW DVD ROM drive. If anyone out there has the answer, or knows how to configure it, I would appreciate you letting me know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Latitude CPx only has the capability of running 2 IDE devices (1 HDD, 1 CD-ROM) The optical drive can be connect via the drive bay in the chassis or the Cable. If Optical drive is connected via cable only the floppy can be used in the bay.
In short, you can't use 2 optical drives at once.
